As Obama is officially turning into a lame duck President, those who live and die by the election cycle are looking towards the next great battle on the horizon. Conservative groups are already busy shaping and putting together their intelligent, thoughtful arguments for why Hillary shouldn’t be Presi….oh, wait.
Here’s Tom Miller from the anti-Hillary America Rising PAC to explain the strategy to us:
“Everyone feels like they know her, so we have to give them information they hadn’t heard about to break through….For younger voters, some of that ‘new information’ could be ’90s scandals and other aspects of their record they didn’t know about, making that material relevant, if not central, to the case against her.”
Ahhhhh…those 90s scandals. And since the millennials and the younger generation have become such a crucial part of the Democratic electorate, I’m guessing we can expect to be hearing a lot about them in the months to come. To which I say, yay! Because who isn’t feeling nostalgic for those awkward early-Internet days when Clinton conspiracy theories were getting bandied about on discussion groups like alt.fan.rush-limbaugh? And there’s so much stuff from that time that never got adequately explained. Like the angle at which Vince Foster’s gun was positioned in relation to his head. Those Whitewater files. How many people the Clintons *really* killed in Arkansas. The question of whether oral sex qualifies as sex. I’m sure a political operative somewhere has Monica’s blue dress stashed away, and is ready to drag it out at the right moment…and hey, what is Gennifer Flowers doing these days?
Add to this the chorus line of Ted Cruz, Darrell Issa and Trey Gowdy dancing to the tune of “Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi” and you’ve got a presidential election I’m looking forward to. Incidentally, the bottle of booze in my kitchen has cracked itself open and is insisting that I have a drink. I have no idea why that happened.
This almost makes the upcoming veto war between Obama and the Republicans seem sane. 2016 can’t come slowly enough.
