Hillary unbound

By Aussiegirl

Tony Blankley has read the Hillary book written by Edward Klein and finds that it is a serious effort and not the salacious scandal sheet it appears to be from the pre-publication leaks. Speaking on radio interviews yesterday, Klein, a former Editor in Chief of the New York Times Magazine and Newsweek foreign affairs editor (hardly your average right-wing outlet kinda guy) relates how one interview after another relating to his book release has been mysteriously cancelled.

Who is applying the pressure? You may well ask. Mr. Klein had better get ready to join that list of traitors to the liberal cause who will henceforth be persona non grata in social and political circles. Most who have traveled this path find that not only social invitations dry up, but old friends will soon refuse to speak to you, or acknowledge you publicly.

He might want to talk to any number of former members of the establishment media who have gone off the reservation, people like Bernard Goldberg, who dared to tell the truth about CBS news and media bias in general in his books, "Bias" and "Arrogance". Goldberg related how his social contacts dried up and even old friends who would talk to him in private told him that they dare not speak to him in public because they also would be ostracized.

The liberal reservation is a closed place -- and once you've left -- there is no return. Of course, Klein says he is a fierce independent, registered as such, and seldom even votes, so seriously does he take his responsibility to be an unbiased journalist. Too bad he has just killed off any opportunity to pursue his chosen field by being exactly that -- fair -- and unbiased.

It is clear that Katie Couric has not scheduled four consecutive days on the Today Show to showcase his book as she did when Kitty Kelly's salacious and badly-resourced gossip rag about the Bushes came out earlier this year. Before Kelly's book was even out, most of her sources for the most outrageous allegations had disavowed the quotes in the book -- but that did not prevent the Today Show from its marathon presentation of every juicy, unsubstantiated detail, breathlessly panted over by the shocked and disturbed Katie.

Tony Blankley has changed my mind -- I'm definitely going to read this book. Anyone who plans to watch politics in the coming years would do well to be aware of the background and makeup of one of the potentially most powerful players in our countries political future.
Liberals may want to take a look at Hillary's ruthlessness as well, as the excerpt below shows. With Hillary, it's "all for the children", except when it's not in Hillary's political interest.
Proceed at your own risk.

About once a year I review a book in this column that ought to be required reading for people who care about politics. Edward Klein's "The Truth About Hillary" is such a book. The pre-publication leak about the book -- that Bill Clinton had allegedly talked about raping his wife -- was off-putting for me. I don't usually waste my time reading salacious scandal books from the Left or the Right. But I was advised to take a look at this book, which I read last weekend.

�It was worth my time. This is not a scandal book intended merely to gratify the reader's salacious interests. Instead, Mr. Klein has written a serious political and psychological biography of the most likely next Democratic nominee for president -- and thus, quite plausibly, I fear, the next president of the United States.

. . . If readers with a taste for realpolitic find the previous Nixon endorsement of her toughness comforting, liberals will find chapter 39 positively chilling. Therein Mr. Klein describes Sen. Clinton's encounter with some New York liberals who had raised money and campaigned for her, and had close ties to Marian Wright Edelman (Mrs. Clinton's ideological godmother.) The women had come in to seek Sen. Clinton's support for a child-care bill.

When they asked her why she was not supporting it, Sen. Clinton explained: "It's not going to fly. I'm not going to spend my political capital on something that is doomed before it starts." The women responded: "We want you to spend your capital whether you win or not � If it was Ted Kennedy, he'd stand on what he believes." Hillary bristled at the invidious comparison between her and Ted Kennedy �

"If you don't understand my position, there is nothing more to say. I have other people waiting � Goodbye." And with that, she strode out of the room in a huff." The women understood quite well: " � she will do anything to get to the White House, including dropping child care."

Again, it's Carol. Reading books is lots of fun. You can't turn me off, here. But if you notice Hillary's hips, any "rape" that Bill did, he'd have had to bring some rope along to tie his ankles to the bedposts so he didn't fall in.

Sometimes, I think our political "stores," are just like those empty-stocked stores in russia. Where you can go in. But they've got nothing to sell.

Ya know? That's why the blogs are alive with the sounds of humans.

I just can't wait for that moment when Hillary has to face a real audience. Not just the "pro's" who are in the business.

Like sex, it's hardly about love when you look for your excitement in whorehouses.

Am I the only one to think that there are no stars left? In hollywood? Or in politics? But books abound. Personally, I'm glad Hillary at least knew what it was like, once, to spread her legs and wrap herself around "her man." BECAUSE HER WORST PROBLEM IS THAT EVERYTIME SHE SAYS SHE'S MARRIED, (happily, no less), everyone thinks she's lying.

Want to know the hardest disadvantages to overcome? Wanna meet the boy who cried wolf? He can tell ya.

Thing is, he could have written a book all about Bush, and fabricated a dozen affairs, with no evidence, nor witnesses, and it would have been proclaimed the gospel by the very people who are now trying to vilify him.
And the mental image of Hillary engaged in... Oh, the horror!

I agree with Billy D.! That thought makes me want to poke out my mind`s eye!

Well, poke at will. But "they" are married. And, what's sad is that she doesn't get it anymore. That's why it's all a LIE.

And, it's nice to know that most people keep their thoughts private. But no one believes that Hillary, with those hips, is happily married. PERIOD.

It's the LIE. Not the mental images that count. Who wants to even think their own parents ever did anything like this. Babies? Cabbage Patches. And, I can show you the dolls to prove it.

Meanwhile, oddly enough, when we try to win beauty contests ... And, Hillary is going to be marching down the runway someday. Her WEAKNESS that she can't overcome. Is that most people know her marriage is PHONY. And, she never walked out because of the POWER. Since when does that bring honor to anybody?

You are who you are. And, you're also what people THINK of you. So if you appear to LIE about something major; like being a beard for a homosexual "partnership" ... Which is also a BIG NEGATIVE ...

What you see isn't beauty but falsehood. Falsehoods always get a head start. (That's what Clementine said about her husband, Winston Churchill. Perenially late. He always wanted to give the train a head start.)

So, Hillary "benefits" in this vacuum. She's got a "head start." And, in ONE STATE, NY STATE, that's got a GOP in BIG, BIG TROUBLE ... she's a "winnah."

Why's that? The conservatives in the GOP dictate. They pick losers and fools, themselves. And, they WON'T FUND A RACE ... where Soros' money is already behind "her fat ass."

If we're lucky? Soros wastes more of his money. Someday, if he wastes enough, it may make a dent.

But the GOPers? Folks, you're all very lucky that the democraps have so many problems; because it let's this stuff fester for NO REASON AT ALL.

You hate Guiliani? He knows it.

You fund Rick Lazio? Why? Because he has nice hair? Notice that for Hillary to steam ahead ... it's the GOP that made unconscionable mistakes. (Just like the 30's. WHen the aristocrats stuck their heads up their asses.) And, Hitler ROSE.

And, I can fashion a question on Clementine's remark: Why do we need to always give the trains ahead start? This makes sense? Maybe, if it's about horse races and gamblers.

Because in a more perfect world there'd be no race. The perfect horse, alone, would leave the gate ... and toodle.

While humans like to throw money like confetti. Dreaming big dreams.

Maybe, Hillary's balloon rises on the size of her hips, alone? Maybe, that's why Bill vacated the bedroom? He didn't want to fall in? You need to ask "does this make her look too fat?"

Hillary is popular only within her own circle. Or when she's up against weak candidates like Lazio. Or the soon to be COX. Like Trisha Nixon's name (as a whore) doesn't resonate among the old New York cognicenti. (Like that line in EVITA. Go look it up, if you don't remember. It has to do with "rear admirals, too.) Oy.

People just love fairytales. And, horror movies. As long as they end with "happily ever after." To grow up, instead, is a better option.

Aussiegirl, somehow your post on Hillary reminded me of Hamlet's rage upon learning, from his father's ghost, of his mother's faithlessness: "O most pernicious woman! O villain, villain, smiling, damned villain! My tables, my tables! Meet it is I set it down That one may smile, and smile, and be a villain ..." Now I know that "villain" here actually refers to Claudius, Hamlet's uncle, but I don't think Shakespeare would have minded my changing his references slightly. If only I knew my Shakespeare better, I'm sure I could find, in his marvelous stable of characters, one who matched our Hillary perfectly.
