The Hillary Fascination
Tribune Media Services, Inc., by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/2/2013 11:00:48 AM

I think she’s one of the most fascinating women of our time and this world,” confessed Bob Greenblatt, the chairman of NBC, as part of his announcement that his network is making a miniseries about former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, with Diane Lane in the starring role. Words are funny things. For instance, G.K. Chesterton once remarked that that the word “good” has many uses: “For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of 500 yards, I should call him a good shot but not necessarily a good man.” So it is,

It is beyond me why she is considered a "rock star" or "facinating." He sums up nicely that Clinton has done absolutely nothing to warrant being described in such glowing terms.

I think it is most fascinating that people actually perceive her as fascinating. It deserves psychiatric study.

I´ll only watch it if the title is, "Doormat: The World´s Most Humiliated Woman."

Nothing could possibly be more humiliating than to be Mrs. Master B. Clinton - - a man who would rather cuddle up to a sink than to you.

She is a killer... literally. Left men to die in Libya because she refused them weapons to protect themselves. Used terrorists as guards in Benghazi.

I thnk evil is more appropriate...and the fact she gets away with it...her evil deeds

I think it should be of interest her evil doings in Benghazi...

I thinks it is of interest that yesterday Dr Christain at gateway pundit when revealing the number of CIA agent that were on the ground in Benghazi are being given monthly lie detector exams and feel threatened for themselves ..and their families

I think it´s especially interesting he reported Hillary ...had Ambassador Stevens Tripoli office scrubbed and emptied immediately before his body was even cold...just like Vince Foster...so Hillary´s MO with dead men who served her is interesting

I think that Hillary´s part in giving Stinger Misssiles to AlQaeda through her Ambassador, Stevens, in Benghazi ...committing Treason is interesting ...and should dam well be looked into by Congress

I think if Jonah, a favourite of mine, wanted to point out anything "fascinating" about Hillary...these were the facts he would have wanted to touch upon...but I don´t know his history of being threatened by this administration ..so I am not criticising him one iota ...

Hillary is fascinating the way a very large scorpion or tarantula might be - confined in a glass cage in a lab. Something to have a look at and understand, but something that should not be allowed to run loose. Something to fear.

Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of 50 years of postwar liberalism, feminism, statism, etc.

Like a child´s 2nd grade drawing, it is an ugly, messy, unedifying spectacle but the parents of liberalism must pretend it´s a Rembrandt and praise it to the hilt.

Hillary is being trumpeted and the inevitable next President by Democratic flacks because the Democrats have nobody else. The Democratic party is running on fumes. They have no new blood in the form of rising young politicians. They are all old, played out lifers who long ago should have retired to their plush pensions except that they are addicted to the power that comes from holding office in Washington.

HilLIARy is fascinating because she defies all that we know is America.

She is not upbeat and happy.
She can not succeed at anything.
She achieved positions of power because of Bill.
She reeks of resentment and anger.
She despises America.
She lies - constantly.

...and she gets away with it!
(of course the Dems laud this)

Yes, we are in awe.

Only in America.

Fascinating you say? I don´t need a mini series to view this ugly hag.
I´ll tell you what is fascinating, play that sound bite of her in the Benghazi hearing when she had an ´if I had an ash tray´ moment to throw at the questioning senators in her high pitched whining witchy voice. You all know the one Bill Clinton and his secret service had to listen to.
Poor Diana Lane must be in an acting slump to take on this ugly acting test. Lane is a pretty fit woman so some padding will have to added to her hips along with some grease in her hair. Fascinating? I doubt it.

Hillary is a fascinating study on lies, corruption, and the kind of ethics where its legal, but immoral and wrong. A study on the many facets of receiving cash and payoffs, without any fastidiousness about legal niceties, obstruction of justice, and in your face lies about her accusers.

Much of the loss of American culture can be traced to the Clintons. Hillary is a disgrace to her sex. Stood by her depraved man for political ambition.

Only yesterday I heard on Radio AM 640 the tape of Monica Lewinsky leaving a message for her Boyfriend. The idea was that on that visit she promised to take all her clothes off. Interesting recording. The radio guys speculated that the release of this juicy Lewinsky recording was linked to Hillary abandoning her longtime protégé Huma Abedin. Another intersting bit was that Monica´s Boyfriend actually performed the wedding ceremony for Weiner and Huma. This is the level of cultural rot that comes with the Clintons.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote.
