Meeting of minds

"Hillary's disdain for masculinity fits right into the classic feminazi package, which is why Hillary acts on Gloria Steinem like catnip. Steinem's fawning, gaseous New York Times op-ed about her pal Hillary this week speaks volumes about the snobby clubbiness and reactionary sentimentality of the fossilized feminist establishment, which has blessedly fallen off the cultural map in the 21st century. History will judge Steinem and company very severely for their ethically obtuse indifference to the stream of working-class women and female subordinates whom Bill Clinton sexually harassed and abused, enabled by look-the-other-way and trash-the-victims Hillary.

How does all this affect the prospect of a Hillary presidency? With her eyes on the White House, Hillary as senator has made concerted and generally successful efforts to improve her knowledge of and relationship to the military -- crucial for any commander-in-chief but especially for the first female one. However, I remain concerned about her future conduct of high-level diplomacy. Contemptuous condescension seems to be Hillary's default mode with any male who criticizes her or stands in her way. It's a Nixonian reflex steeped in toxic gender bias. How will that play in the Muslim world?

(...) But Hillary herself, with her thin, spotty record, tangled psychological baggage, and maundering blowhard of a husband, is also a mighty big roll of the dice. She is a brittle, relentless manipulator with few stable core values who shuffles through useful personalities like a card shark ("Cue the tears!"). Forget all her little gold crosses: Hillary's real god is political expediency. Do Americans truly want this hard-bitten Machiavellian back in the White House? Day one will just be more of the same."

- Camille Paglia, "Hillary without Tears".

So, what conservative Rush Limbaugh, liberal Camille Paglia and me have in common? We don´t like Hillary AT ALL. You got to love this article written by Ms. Paglia about Hillary that Limbaugh mentioned in his show today. And, I encourage every woman (and man too) out there to read it carefully and meditate about it.

I am not a liberal, don´t like Obama, but I agree with Ms. Paglia´s article in which she, as only people who managed the English language as well as she does, explains so deliciously well Hillary´s flaws and how she will be a terrible president for good ol´US of A. As a matter of fact, no democrat will be a good fit for the country right now. Only because USA enemies, like Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are salivating to have a Democrat in the White House, they know they won't have to deal with another Bush. That would be their 2008 Christmas present. And, needless to say, very bad for the democratic Venezuelans.

Now, the idea that after writing this comment she will vote for her if she gets the nomination because of she wants liberal judges in the supreme court is rather disappointing but totally understandable. It would be too much to ask for Camille Paglia not voting liberal.
