The Sham Candidacy of Hillary Clinton -- and What It Means for the Republic

Let us please stipulate that in a rational world, a woman like Hillary Rodham Clinton would have absolutely no chance of being nominated for, much less elected, president of the United States. She has achieved nothing, accomplished nothing (unless you count the four dead Americans at Benghazi, for which she will ultimately be held responsible); she is an exremely poor public speaker, full of annoying verbal and physical tics; she is legendarily dishonest; she is a hard-core Alinskyite; and in general a wretched human being. By rights, she should be laughed off the stage, the same way the smart set laughed at Lurleen Wallace, who succeeded her husband George Wallace, the racist Democrat, as governor of Alabama back in 1967.  She has no natural political constituency, except the manufactured "women's vote," and no rationale for her candidacy except that it's "time" for a woman president, just as it was "time" for a part-black African, part-Arab, half-white, paternally cultural Muslim to pass for a traditional African-American Christian and be elected president in 2008.

And yet, even after the comically disastrous and transparently phony launch of her new "campaign," she's considered the "inevitable" Democrat nominee for 2016 and, very likely, the next president of the United States. For the sake of democracy in America, she needs to be defeated and politically destroyed. Break Hillary and you have begun to break the power of the Mainstream Media, a fifth column masquerading as the Fourth Estate whose mission it has been for decades to "fundamentally transform" the United States of America.

For the only reason an HRC candidacy is even plausible is the influence of the legacy media, which has simply declared, by fiat, her suitability and her inevitability. You may recall that the MSM did the same thing in the run-up to 2008, until their dreamboat, Obama, came along and gave the aging Baby Boomers, who had dreamed of exactly this moment since 1968, a reason to push the female candidate to the back of the bus in order to celebrate the only kind of "diversity" they advocate, which is racial.

It didn't matter to the Racialist Left that Obama had exactly nothing to do with the authentic black American experience -- he was not from a slave background, he grew up in largely racially colorblind Hawaii where his skin color matched that of the vast majority of the island's population, and his mother was as white as, well, Kansas. (Like Obama, I grew up in part in Hawaii, and can relate from first-hand experience that the only people actively discriminated against in those days were "white" people.) But in choosing to send young Barry to the Punahou School -- where the Anglo elite had long sent their progeny -- his parents, or handlers, found the one school in the islands where he could feel racially aggrieved.

In short, his "blackness" was essentially manufactured in order to sell him to the media and then to a good-hearted American public as a plausible black candidate in a way that, say, Jesse Jackson was (in their view) not. Harry Reid inadvertently let the cat out of the bag away when he remarked that Obama had "no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one." In other words, Obama was not threateningly black, a racist view Joe Biden endorsed when he called him "articulate and clean."

In case you missed it, Joe Biden is now the vice president of the United States.
