Her Imperial Majesty Hillary I, Dowager Empress of Chappaqua, is declining to endorse any member of the clown car that is the Democrat’s Presidential field. Why, do you suppose? Excerpt:
Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told late night show host Stephen Colbert she is not endorsing anyone from the current set of Democratic candidates.
The former secretary of state, and daughter Chelsea, were on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Monday night discussing their new book when Colbert asked how it felt to see multiple women run for president.
“You know, I have to say it feels great. When I ran, there were more women in space than women running for president, right?” Clinton said.
Colbert then asked if Clinton had endorsed anyone yet.
“No. No, I’m not going to,” she replied.
“What if somebody came out and said let’s get rid of the Electoral College?” Colbert followed up.
“I think they’ve all said that. I’ve said that since 2000, and boy did I mean it in 2000,” Clinton joked.
Of course she said that in 2000; the Dems lost. But let’s get back to the original point.
Why wouldn’t Her Imperial Majesty endorse anyone? She claims to be excited about the number of women in the field, and one of those women (Warren) seems to be gaining some traction. Why wouldn’t Her Royal Highness endorse?
Well, possibly – just possibly – she is waiting for the current shitstorm in the Imperial City to get good and ripe. The current Dem Presidential field has shown great collective (hah!) talent for beclowning themselves. Could Her Imperial Majesty be waiting for the opportunity to set herself up as the only grown-up in the room?
Boy, wouldn’t that be ironic.
If Her Royal Highness follows this path, it would be the greatest political miscalculation since William Seward decided he had the 1860 Republican nomination all sewed up and went on a European tour, returning to find he had lost to some backwoods upstart named Lincoln.
I’m fairly certain the Trump re-election team would salivate at the idea of facing off once more against the most deeply and fundamentally corrupt political figure since Huey Long. But my concern is for the American people – can we take another long campaign season punctuated by her grating cackle, by her overweening self-righteousness, by her Brobdingnagian sense of entitlement? Will she come up with a campaign platform that has planks other than “I have a vagina” and “It’s my turn, you peasants!”
I guess all that remains to be seen.
Her Majesty’s entry into the race is, I think, pretty damn unlikely. But the silly season may well get a whole lot sillier, and honestly, stranger things have happened.
