So going into 2016,
this will be happening
"A huge portion of the electorate that's going to be her target don't remember the Clinton administration at all," Tim Miller, who's heading an anti-Hillary PAC called America Rising, told TPM recently. "A lot of the negative stuff about the Clinton era has congealed into like a joke or a historical blip, but people don't remember the details."
"While that's not going to be central to our nominee's campaign against Hillary, what was happening in 1994," he continued, "I do think it's important for that to be part of the discussion about her, so that the folks who are getting information about 2016 don't have a clouded vision, a nostalgic vision of the Clinton era."
Well, won't that be exciting? Nothing like a first-hand demonstration of the conspiracy-peddling vapidity of the era to highlight exactly why "a lot of the negative stuff" congealed into a "joke" soon after losing its status as most important conspiracy-peddling vapidity.
The point is that the young folks these days will not remember how ridiculous Clinton Conspiracy Theater was, and so we need some fellow like Tim Miller here to educate them as to what it was like and why it was not at all ridiculous. The concern for the youth is, however, mostly unnecessary. If you are a young youthful youth and want to know what the Clinton years were like, at least from the conservative perspective, the answer is Benghazi. What was the scandal? We don't know. Why is the scandal so scandalous? We don't know. Why does the scandal have crap-all to do with the person the scandal purportedly revolves around? Hang on, we'll get the flow charts. If you want to know what the Clinton era was like, from the conservative perspective, close your eyes and imagine 50 Darrell Issii beating a dead horse named Benghazi while every Washington pundit or reporter with in IQ lower than poultry huddles around to watch. There, I just explained the whole thing to you.
Oh—and the eventual outcome was a world in which multiple someones took Matt Drudge seriously, and that "serious reporting" by the belligerently dimwitted was soon elevated into the sort of crackpot professional scandalboostering we now know as Fox News. Yeah. By the end of the next round, 10 years hence, they'll have convinced themselves that lunar eclipses are Hillary Clinton trying to steal the moon, and James O'Keefe and Cliven Bundy will be the Fox News anchors reporting it to you.
