Hillary For Prez

I have been telling anyone who’ll listen that Hillary will be the Edward M.

Kennedy of 2008, if she runs. That is, she will crash and burn early, and

people will be left wondering why on earth anyone ever thought she was

competitive.

This is based on considerable TV exposure to her (she’s one of my senators).

She is over-groomed, over-prepped, just too focus-grouped faultlessly

perfect. I hear people — friends & neighbors, including liberals — say

this all the time. “Robotic… phony warmth… too rehearsed…” There is

no humanity there, none of the little foibles that make us like a person.

And then, of course, there are the Arkansas days: the shady land deals, the

felonious friends, the billing recrods, the cattle futures…

If Hill runs, she will crash and burn early. You heard it here first.

Are We on the Verge of Civil War?

Americans keep dividing into two hostile camps. It seems the country is back to 1860 on the eve of the Civil War, rather than in 2018, during the greatest age of affluence, leisure, and freedom in the history of civilization. The ancient historian Thucydides called the civil discord that tore apart the ... Read More
