Hillary gets served up as tasty holiday shish kebob

Anyone thinking Hillary Clinton has been mistreated by U.S. media of all stripes should check out what Camille Paglia wrote today in England’s Tribune. She has deliciously skewered and roasted to perfection the never-say-die Democratic candidate, along with seemingly everything Hillary has said or done during her campaign.

One tidbit:

For all her claims of media bias and ill treatment by her male fellow candidates, Hillary has got off absurdly softly in this campaign. No one — neither her rivals nor mainstream journalists — has had the guts to explore or even list the bursting catalogue of past Clinton scandals, in which Hillary was nearly always hip deep.

It’s curious, though, that Paglia turned to the Tribune for publication. She’s a published U.S. writer and citizen, teaching at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Is it possible her story was just a bit too spicy for U.S. tastes? Whatever the backstory, the feature should be a hit with Hillary-haters and anti-feminists.

  1. I’m sure it was too spicy! That’s how we are here; just have to be politically correct- never call a spade a spade you know- wouldn’t want to offend anyone or worse, have them take responsibility for their actions?

    This is a great post. Now I gotta go click on the link and read the article!
    Thank you, JQ. If you liked this, you’re gonna love Paglia’s take on things. 🙂

  2. Wow, great post! She certainly is a spicy “post-feminism feminist.” If you love her, love to hate her, or love/hate Hillary then this Salon then this article exploring the origins of Hillary’s “warren-riddled psyche” is something you might find entertaining/enraging as well (and check out that über “Geraldine Ferraro-ish” cartoon portrait of Paglia found there).
    Hey, thanks, and thanks for dropping in. I’m off to check your link right now.

    Definitely savory, but it lacked the smoky crispness of Paglia’s work.
