Why People Zone Out on Hillary

Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze.  According to Mediate, her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15.  I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits.

No, I haven’t read it and don’t intend to. Almost all books by contemporary politicians are intellectually vacuous, ghostwritten exercises in self-promotion or, as in the case of Barack Obama, a straight out pack of lies. Who would spend their valuable reading time on that with the thousands of great books, past and present, available?  I haven’t even made my way through half of Dorothy Sayers.

Which leads me to the deeper reason the country is sleeping through Hillary’s book and it’s not just because it’s hugely over long and therefore a totally un-green waste of paper and trees (although that’s true).  Most people know she’s basically dishonest, a prevaricator.  Even liberals, though they won’t readily admit it, know this.  Who can forget her blaming her husband’s compulsive philandering on the “great, right-wing conspiracy”?  If they only had such power. Or the dim-witted claims of being under fire when she hadn’t been (at least Geraldo makes a show of ducking)  and, more recently, the banshee-cry of “What difference does it make?” concerning the deaths of our people in Benghazi?  The Benghazi lies are actually exponential. (I’m not even going to go back to Whitewater, the miracle quick killing on the stock market, the mysterious Rose Law Firm bill and all the rest.)

After years of listening to an obvious liar talking down to most of the country, maybe people don't want more of the same. She is as big a phony as the one she seeks to replace. Except she isn't a "Magic Negro". She just tries to talk like one once in a while.

People zone out on Hillary because she has no creds. She got where she is only by bring the wife of a president. She won the senate on that accomplishment, where she did virtually nothing before being appointed to one of the worst tenures of a US Secretary of State, before quitting that amid a scandal that will continue until the truth comes out.

Then again, based on how the current POS is doing, maybe she's already in the job and we just haven't noticed.

Mrs. Clinton is vengeful, deceitful, arrogant, unaccomplished, and boring -- and those are her good qualities. However, Barack Hussein Obama has established as precedent that a vengeful, deceitful, unaccomplished, arrogant, and boring candidate is perfectly viable as a presidential candidate, so watch out, America.

If Hilary subscribes to no ideology, that alone is a reason to vote for her.

"Hillary’s not a socialist, not a Marxist, not a capitalist, not a libertarian, not anything."

That describes much of today's left: Leftist theory has been discredited by a century of failure. What was once a movement of true believers is now largely a coalition of opportunists: cronies, parasites, nihilists, psychopaths. Sure, there are plenty of useful idiot followers but many of the leaders are cynical opportunists.

If you heard that ugly tape where she is laughing about getting a friend out of rape charges on a 12 year old girl, here's the girl's story. It destroys Hillary's "I'm for women" claim:

When I moved back to the US with my Japanese wife (who knew nothing about US politics), we were watching a news broadcast, and there was a clip of Hillary making a speech, and my wife turned to me, and in her innocence said, "I don't trust her". She didn't even know who Hillary was, and she could see right through her. That says it all.

If feminists were honest, they would admit that her only true accomplishment is that she married well. If we had a two party system, she would never have made it as far as she has.

If feminists were honest, they wouldn't be feminists.

If the radfems were honest, they'd admit they'd won their war and put down their weapons and retire from combat, go have a drink or something.

But, no. There are now Microaggressions[TM] to police!

they zone out because there is nothing on which to zone in. There is nothing original or interesting or real or anything else about Hillary. She is no more than an amalgamation of every cynical, borderline evil, power-mad individual you have seen cast in umpteen dramas and movies. The woman is a caricature, embraced for no reason beyond her chromosomes or the letter next to her name, and ironically, a liar so practiced she makes Bill look damn near Washingtonian.

Poor old Hillary Clinton. She's not having a good first week with her
book tour. A $14 million advance, 1.5 million copies printed, but only
100,000 sold so far, plus that revolting puff piece on Fox News and
Joe Mattera asking her to autograph the book for Christopher Stevens.
Not a good week.
Poor old Hillary.

According to "The Washington Post," Palin sold 700,000 copies of her book in the first week, and Bush sold 2,000,000 copies of his in the first two months.

Clinton sold 600,000 copies of her first book in the first week. Maybe the reading public is growing tired of her.

After reading on a website, and....then hearing an audiotape on Hannity at foxnews..Hillary laughing about defending a rapist of a 12 year old child..and laughing about how she knew he was guilty..but got him off with only a few months to serve.. She was laughing throughout the audiotape. This is the woman who supposedly cares about women and children. I will never vote for her. No woman should..neither should the parents of any child.
