Clinton Derangement Syndrome.

Andrew Sullivan says, “The Clintons tend to be lucky in their enemies.”

That’s one way to look at it. Another way to look at it is that the anti-Clinton machine is composed of the worst of the GOP. The faux-scandals fly fast, furiously, and free of facts. Not to mention doggedly authoritarian, if one notes Kenneth Starr’s unconscionable abrogation of Susan McDougal’s Constitutional rights. It’s the very modus operandi that led directly to all things Bush.

The fact is that the only sensible case against Hillary Clinton is one that comes from the left. She’s a centrist Democrat who triangulates by making concession towards Republican policies. The fact that Republicans think they hate this woman reveals them as completely irrational. The reason why Clinton triangulation works is because sane moderates actually pay attention to how Bill Clinton governed in the ’90s and to how Hillary behaved in the Senate. It’s the left she’s been driving crazy through unbelievable betrayals like voting for Iraq. The Clintons, for all their human imperfections, have a governing philosophy America likes. Most lefties can whack them on certain policies and still rate their job performances highly.

As furious as those who hate the Clintons personally get at the thought of Bill Clinton smugly walking back into the White House, the fact simply is that it will be better for America. The rightwingjackass brigade has nothing on them. But they won’t stop. That doesn’t make the Clintons lucky. That makes all of us unlucky.

Of course, we could simply sidestep all this adieu and elect Obama instead, who only the most vile could hate. The primaries are coming, Iowa. Why not take this chance to vote for the best candidate? President Barack Obama…how exciting is that? I dare any non-rightwingjackass to tell me how that doesn’t give them a bigger woody than “President Hillary Clinton.”


UPDATE: That didn’t mean disguise yourself with a fake Hillary site, rightwingjackass! See comments.

    Hillary supporters: please don’t get discouraged. PLEASE. She is getting attacked from all sides because people deep down know she is our only hope for America and they’re trying to ruin it for everybody. Hillary is the ONLY candidate with these 4 attributes: honor, patriotism, loyalty, and kindness. I got $35 in the bank that says no other candidate has those attributes.

    Telling people to put Hillary bumper stickers on strangers’ cars?

    Putting up a Youtube of Hillary’s waffling up as an example of her at her best?

    Obviously you’re a Republican with a fake support-Hillary site. Fake blogger altert!

    Liar, propagandists like VFHO will get keyword alerts via rss feed aggregators and then cut and paste the same comment on multiple blogs. The intentions are predictable; get the mouth-breathing base riled up and smear your opponent.
