“Like Manchurian candidates, we have been made into Manchurian consumers, who subconsciously buy when we are triggered by our brand masters.” — Bryant H. McGill
Name recognition. It’s why corporations spend millions plastering their emblems on every stray sporting venue that seats more than 5 people; why jingle writers drive Cadillacs; why, in politics as in nursery schools, rhyme is always more effective than reason; and why Hillary Clinton, according to a March poll conducted by the Associated Press, is viewed more favorably than crab lice by 1,016 randomly chosen American idiots.
This is a woman, after all, who accomplished nothing as First Lady, nothing as U.S. senator from New York, and whose malfeasance as Secretary of State resulted in the deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi and 6 billion missing dollars in contract funds. The only items in her resume that seem to qualify her for the modern presidency are a predilection for socialism and a lack of testicles — the same attributes that carried Barack Obama to victory. Even such a noted expert on Hillary as Hillary couldn’t conjure up any achievement worthy of mention:
Several weeks ago, MRC-TV’s Dan Joseph visited the Democratic Party’s winter meeting to see if attendees could name a single tangible of Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State. They couldn’t. It turns out that Hillary Clinton herself can’t even do that.
“People began to rely on us as setting the values, setting the standards. I just don’t want to lose that because we have a dysfunctional political situation in Washington. And then of course, a lot of particulars, but I am finishing my book so you’ll be able to read all about it.”
Of course, the “values” and “standards” set by the last president named Clinton resulted in impeachment, disbarment, and Monica Lewinsky’s infamously soiled blue dress; but, as a madly ambitious former First Lady might ask, “What difference does it make now?”
