WELL, YES: Camille Paglia: Hillary Clinton is ‘a disaster.’

Outspoken social critic and professor Camille Paglia once liked Hillary Clinton’s personality, but that is no longer the case.

Now, Paglia finds Clinton’s “accomplishments” to be anything but, and will not vote for her.

“It’s an outrage how she’s played the gender card,” Paglia told the Spectator. “She is a woman without accomplishment. ‘I sponsored or co-sponsored 400 bills.’ Oh really? These were bills to rename bridges and so forth. And the things she has accomplished have been like the destabilization of North Africa, causing refugees to flood into Italy …”

The woman is a disaster!” she added.

Paglia also said that women haven’t been running for president not because of some kind of glass ceiling, but because they’re just not drawn to the rigors of what that kind of campaign takes. Paglia added that in 2012, she voted for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

“So I have already voted for a woman president,” she said.

This is not the first time Paglia has been critical of Clinton. Earlier this year, Paglia knocked Clinton’s “blame-men-first” brand of feminism that “defines women as perpetual victims requiring government protections.”

Paglia defined her own feminism to the Spectator as “street-smart Amazon feminism,” which is a much more appealing term than current modern outrage feminism.
