National Public Radio is not exactly the lion’s den for Democrats.  Yet Hillary Clinton couldn’t even get through an NPR interview, on a subject friendly to her, without getting snippy with reporter Terry Gross.

Gross wanted the answer to a simple question: When did Hillary Clinton come around to supporting gay marriage?

It’s a good question. In the 1990s, the majority of Democrats including President Bill Clinton publicly opposed gay marriage. They passed a federal law, the Defense of Marriage Act, to stop gay marriage. Bill Clinton signed DOMA into law.

So, Gross wanted to know, now that Hillary publicly supports gay marriage, did she support it then but couldn’t say so for political reasons? Or did Hillary come around to supporting it some time later?

Hillary refuses to give a straight answer. No pun intended. What ensues is Hillary going from being jovial to being obviously annoyed, over a fair and obvious question. At one point, Clinton goes way off script and accuses Gross of “playing with my words.”

Hillary can’t even get through a simple interview without either saying something tone deaf and stupid (“We were flat broke”) or getting flustered over nothing.

It’s a pity that we have so many low-information voters out there who will just vote for her because she’s a woman. She’s an awful candidate and would make an awful president. There’s a good chance that she would be even worse than Barack Obama.

Update: Wait, Hillary thinks she’s American? How can she not know?

This is heartening stuff. It suggests that Obama's record has made it tougher for his aspiring successors to slide by without getting a proper vetting by the media -- and that the current Democrat front-runner (if only for lack of an alternative) will not take the heat gracefully.

Well, I agreed with Bill Clinton when he signed DOMA. I agreed with President Obama in 2008 when he stated categorically that he opposed same-sex marriage.

But since Obama flipped on the issue, I have been called a bigot many times because I believe the same thing today that Bill Clinton and Barack Obama did then.

All I want to know is this: can we pinpoint the precise moment when I became a bigot? How about the precise year? Decade?

Well, we all become bigots whenever the left feels like calling us bigots. They don't have to have any evidence. Just look at the smears after Brat beat Cantor. The left can even have held the same position you hold. But they weren't bigots then, and you're a bigot now. Bigot.

I think Hillary needs to take Bill on the book tour. He can help get her foot out of her mouth, which seems to be happening on a daily basis.
