Woman With Virtually No Accomplishments Makes History Or Something

There’s quite a bit of sqeeeing going on the news media over the nomination of Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic Party presidential nominee. It’s History! The NY Times says so

Clinton Makes History

….

Mrs. Clinton’s nomination — bringing women, barred first by law and then by custom, to the pinnacle of American politics — is to be celebrated as inspiration for young Americans, and as hope for women in nations and cultures that deny them the most basic opportunities. It is further proof that opening doors to women elevates and strengthens our nation.

Well, now, that’s interesting, because she has virtually no positive accomplishments over her time as a public figure. Quick, name one. Getting a bill renaming a federal center in NYC really doesn’t count much, does it? Let’s be honest: Hillary has ridden Bill’s coattails since he became governor of Arkansas. Call that sexist, call it misogynistic, the truth hurts. She was pathetic as a reverse carpet bagger senator, and was worse as Secretary of State.

Of course, to point anything out and go against her is sexism

Some Americans remain deeply uncomfortable with women leading corporations, let alone the free world. No woman is more aware of this than Mrs. Clinton, who has struggled as first lady, senator and secretary of state to strike the right balance between what society expected of women and what she aspired to accomplish.

See?

What is already clear is that Mrs. Clinton has had to work fiercely hard, under a withering scrutiny no male candidate would face, and that that hard work has now resulted in a profound service to the nation: A short time ago, the idea that a woman would attain her party’s presidential nomination was beyond audacious; it no longer is.

Yeah, no man with that bad a record, who is that unlikable and has a problem speaking to citizens outside of small gatherings would ever have trouble. Now that she is official (after having help from the DNC in spiking Bernie Sanders’ attempt), the compliant news media can frame all opposition as sexism.

Now over to the “straight news” at the Times, with this filed under “news analysis”. In other words, an opinion piece disguised

Hillary Clinton Asks Not for Trust, but for Faith in Her Competence

The trust of the American electorate remains out of her reach. Its affections still elude her.

So after 40 years in public life, Hillary Clinton grasped for something less lofty and far more attainable here on Thursday night: an unquestioned acknowledgment of her readiness for the job.

Her speech was rather short on actual accomplishments, because her history in government is rather short on actual accomplishments.

This all is pretty much repeated across the news media, you’ll get the same things at ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, LA Times, etc. Hillary is utterly corrupt, incompetent, and soulless. She’s a big government statist who has no idea what the middle and lower classes go through. She wants to disarm law abiding citizens while having her own armed security for decades. She’s an unindicted felon who exposed national security for her own convenience. Her foundation is a criminal racket which spends just 10% on charity. She has no legislative record to speak of, and her time as Sec State saw the rise of ISIS, the disaster in Syria, support for Islamic extremists, and the rise of Russia, among others.

History is not always positive.

Anyway, her speech was agitated, hectoring, pandering, and robotic. There were catcalls and boos. Even Bill apparently found it boring

    Great comic, Goodstuff. Also enjoy your blogs.

    As to the subject, the NY Times shows once again how stuck in the past the democrat left is and how dishonest they are.
    If the repubs had nominated a woman, that woman would have been torn to shreds.

    As to: “Americans remain deeply uncomfortable with women leading corporations”. This is so stupid it’s impressive. Anyone told that to Lori Greiner, Barbara Corcoran, Marissa Mayer and others?

    As to facing a “withering scrutiny no male candidate would face”…. Good God, they are so removed from reality. Anyone heard of Trump, Romney, W or others?

    Last note…Good move putting “straight news” in quotes when it involves the NY Times.

    I think this is really unfair. Hillary DOES have accomplishments, many of them.

    Yes, they are all illegal, immoral, and otherwise unethical, but they are accomplishments nonetheless.

    Hank_M, a Republican woman candidate would be shredded because she obviously wasn’t a “real” woman — you know, the same way the Left insists Clarence Thomas isn’t a “real” black man.

    And I agree, Hillary is right, just not the way she thinks, with the whole “two standards, one for everyone else, one for Hillary.”

    Sadly, Hillary gets less scrutiny and is certainly exempt from laws (as Comey has already all but said).

    I do wonder, do outfits like the NY Slimes MEAN what they say? I mean, do they truly believe it? Or are they “just” trying to keep the rank-and-file Left stupid and uninformed?

    Because I would actually have more sympathy if they were just as deluded as the Lefty base than I would if they were evil liars (as odd as that sounds).

    Since I didn’t watch did the Hag walk out, wave, point and smile at her imaginary friend?

    I always find that amusing.

    I know a Bernie fan that was high in the organization in California. He describes Hillary as “dirty”. At the end of the day, she is a lyin, crooked political elite that can not be put in prison as she is at a different social level than the rest of us.

  6. Liam Thomas says:

    Was listening to a bunch of Bernie fans saying they were gonna vote for the Green party candidate instead of hillary.

    Shes in trouble because the entire DNC treated Bernie like a red headed step child instead of someone wielding great power on the left.

    Their bad…..Looks like The Donald might win this thing.

    I can’t help but think of the scene from “Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot” (sigh, yes I saw it) when whatsername is reporting on the first female driver in Afghanistan who promptly backs into a garbage bin. This is a metaphor for a HRC presidency. Whatsername says, “Well that sucks for women.” Indeed.

    Man With No Accomplishments Makes History Or Something

    Fixed your headline. Can anyone name even one Trump accomplishment?

  9. Liam Thomas says:

    Don’t you all realize this is the most egregious election in the history of the USA?

    We have two incapable, power seeking, sociopaths running for president……

    Neither give a shit about anyone but their bottom line and or POWER.

    One is a loud mouthed moron who says absolutely stupid things for headlines.

    The other is a shrill who says all the right things for headlines.

    One is a billionaire.

    One is working on becoming one.

    One is a communist.

    One is a Capitalist with almost no political aspirations other then to assuage his massive ego.

    One is a back room, wheeling and dealing POLITICIAN that will do anything and everything to get elected and stay in power.

    The other is a back room, wheeling and dealing Business man who will do anything and everything to get rich and have power.

    Dont you see…….

    We have NO choice this Election. The American people have no choice.

    One promises to help women and save the poor……

    The other has more women then men in important positions….while the one professing to help women has less women and more men surrounding her and her “QuOTE…Charity”.

    Don’t you see………

    This election is the most divisive election in the history of America…….Because for the first time we now have a choice……..We can elect left anarchy or we can elect right anarchy….but make no mistake……

    This november America is and will be on her knees and ready to capitualate to which ever FEAR MONGER GAINS THE WHITE HOUSE>

    That’s what was said in 2000. We have no choice. And 600,000 in Iraq cry out from their graves (including thousands of young Americans).

    This time we have a clear choice: A liberal who is too quick to use American power overseas and a quick-tempered, deceitful, petulant, childish business tycoon who uses xenophobia, fear and racism as his primary tactics for mobilizing the far-right.

    Trump is the man the far-right has been waiting for, saying they things they have longed to say since American became too “PC”.
