The Hillary Conspiracies

It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that with the presidential election still more than two years away, Republican mouthpieces, to include Fox News hucksters, are already straining at their chains trying to get at Hillary.   So far the inevitable Democratic nominee has not even announced her intention to run for President, but that's not stopping the attack dogs.  They are already snarling and snapping at the formidable Mrs. Clinton, begging for a fight that they will one day regret - big time!

These sleaze experts are operating as they always have - through rumor, innuendo, and bald-faced lies - the mother's milk of Republican politicians.  That strategy has served them well during the Obama years as they used race-baiting and fears of a government-gone-wild grabbing the guns of goobers to keep their low-information voters whipped into a frenzy.  The President, ever the good Christian, turned the other cheek in almost revolving door fashion as he ignored the noise and focused on the future.   The Clinton's will not be so accommodating.

First, as an overlay to the Clinton stories that are beginning to hatch, is the Benghazi "scandal."   Republicans have tried to make Benghazi an issue that resonates with the public almost as much as they have tried to repeal Obamacare.  Now they have formed a House committee to investigate the issue, and over two hundred Republican House members sought seats on that committee.  (Obviously, this matter was beyond the skill set of Congressman Issa.)  Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi!  Anything to keep the House from being productive and passing legislation that would actually help people.

There was also a story that Chelsea Clinton's pregnancy was timed to elicit support for Hillary - especially among us proud grandparents.  Then Screech Palin grabbed a microphone and wanted the world to know that the grandmother-to-be was a supporter of abortion on demand.  How could someone with views like that possibly ever be a caring grandparent?

Monica Lewinski just happened to publish a piece in Vanity Fair after a decade or so of relative silence.     Odd timing?  You betcha!  But Republicans wanted to cover all of the bases, so after Monica secured a forum to remind people of Bill Clinton's sticky persona,  Lynn Cheney, grabbed a Fox microphone and used it to suggest that Hillary might be behind Monica's sudden reemergence into the public arena.  There had been some public sympathy toward Hillary as a result of Bill's sordid affairs, so maybe Hillary wanted to tap back into that sympathetic support.  Or, maybe she just wanted to get it out of the way early - before the primaries and the general election campaign.

That Hillary is sure a devious wench - telling Monica what to do and when to do it!

What's next?  Probably the death of Clinton aide, Vince Foster.  The GOP strained its collective brain twenty years ago trying to make the Foster suicide into some sort of twisted murder plot - one in which Hillary was either instrumental in causing it to happen, hid evidence to make it look like a suicide, or pulled the trigger herself before hoofing it back to the White House unobserved.

And then there was the thing called "travel gate," and Bill's mother's penchant for playing the ponies.

Somewhere deep in the bowels of Fox News is a list of twenty-year-old outrages and a calendar of proposed release dates for each of these pressing news stories.

But again, the Clintons are not the Obamas.  When the campaign starts, Hillary (and Bill) will be ready.  The tough Arkansas brawlers will take no prisoners.  Yes, Hillary will enter the race toting a lot of baggage, but some of those bags will contain bazookas - and Hillary won't be bashful about using them.

And Screech - Hillary will have you for a mid-morning snack on day one!
