When Hillary did her weepy emoting bit on Monday, tears welling in her eyes as she grieved that Americans might miss out on all the plans she has in store for us, it stirred vague memories of something — but I couldn’t quite remember what.
Tuesday evening, watching her victory bash on TV, with more tears (this time in Bill’s eyes), it hit me. I realized exactly what Hillary’s tears reminded me of. From Through the Looking Glass, “The Walrus and the Carpenter”:
“I weep for you,” the Walrus said:
“I deeply sympathize.”
With sobs and tears he sorted out
Those of the largest size,
Holding his pocket-handkerchief
Before his streaming eyes.
Great poem. Here’s a link; best guide I can think of to the Clinton campaign.
