Hillary, Post Mortem

Been awhile since I've commented on our girl Hillary here.

For one reason, lately she reminded me of a woman leaning out a window of a burning house, calling for help.
That and her easy association to the Wicked Witch of the West in the land of Oz was getting old.
I expected to hear "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead" sung by the Munchkins, played over and over since Tuesday night.

Really, Hillary Clinton was a tragic figure in a morality play called the Democratic Presidential race.

She surrounded herself with sycophants who so craved personal glory and power, to the point of actually demonstrating disdain for America's future security. It was instead all about electing a woman, making history, but not looking past that mark ever.

Sure, we as a nation have dodged a bullet for now: We can put to bed more Chinese military visitors to the White House, more parsing of words and definitions of words, daily MSM updates on Chelsea's lovelife, the resurrection of old trolls such as Madeline Albright and Janet Reno--

And Bubba. ...speaking of sycophants...

Conservatives are now today free to lament Hillary's utter and complete public embarrassment, bestowing upon her the victimhood she had embraced for so long. Free now to suggest that a divorce from Bill would have been a good idea, and a good career move, after 1998. A total split away from an impeached former president and sex addict, reminding her that while Tammy Wynette sang the song "Stand By Your Man", Ms. Wynette also sang the famous "D-I-V-O-R-C-E".

Prompting at least one conservative in southeast Oklahoma to fantasize about what kind of leader a Republican Hillary Clinton might have been.

But then, Hillary would be the Wonderful wizard in the fortified, walled Emerald City.

re Tammy Wynette singing both "Stand By Your Man" and "D-I-V-O-R-C-E": Wilson Phillips probably took a cue from her with the two 'hits' from their first album, which were "Hold On" and "Release Me". :)

You might like my take on this farce we3 call an election, which I posted for my "Freaky Deaky Friday".

Oh, by the way, Munchkin wanted to sing 'Ding Dong the Witch is Dead'
but she ended up with laryngitis after barking at strangers walking past the apartment all day.

Very well written! :)

Thanks, all! I keep coming back to what kind of conservative leader, a fighting Hillary would have been.

LOL, Abouna; as long as Munchkin is in full voice in time for her Saturday "Munchkin's Corner" post!
