Hillaryisms: I Mean, You Know...

I know this is a few days old but, Rule of Reason has a revealing post by Edward Cline on Hillary's attempted rationalization of her sniper-fire gaff. Evidently, she said:
œI went to eighty countries, you know. I gave contemporaneous accounts, I wrote about a lot of this in my book. You know, I think that, a minor blip, you know, if I said something that, you know, I say a lot of things – millions of words a day – so if I misspoke, it was a misstatement.”
Does she or does she not sound like a bubble-gum chewing, 17 yr old airhead? That paragraph almost makes Bush look like a linguistic scholar. Mr. Cline does an admirable job of cognitive critic when he points out:
I mean, you know, after all, what is the meaning of is? You know? I mean, I’m really inarticulate in this kind of bind, and I have a foggy memory of when exactly I was under sniper fire, or where. I traveled so much when First Lady as part of my experience. So when you catch me in a lie – I mean, a minor blip, a misstatement – it really rattles me, you know. But I’m sure I could think clearly if I got a call at 3 o’clock in the morning about an Iranian nuclear missile that incinerated Philadelphia, it wouldn’t rattle me at all, I mean, I have all that foreign policy experience. I actually touched the red phone in Bill's office, and that counts as experience, doesn’t it?
I concur, and they call Bush inarticulate.

The article goes on to say that all three major networks carried the clip of Hillary not running for cover. This is very much out of character for the MSM. There can only be one reason for such blasphemy, they want Obama to win. After all, everything will be forgiven by the DNC if Obama, a Democrat, wins.

If McCain or Hillary wins, expect the FCC to conduct an investigation to determine if networks' ownership is still serving the 'public interest.' (a sarcastic heh)

I wouldn't put anything past these candidates.

As I have speculated before, I think part of the reason people think (or used to think) Hillary Clinton was intelligence is that she does not seem like a happy woman, and people equate happiness with stupidity. (See Woody Allen's "Annie Hall") Hillary seems to be both unhappy and unintelligent.

I agree completely. I think the only thing that can make her happy is power. It's her security blanket.
