For John, BLUF: The good news is that the election is less than 30 days away. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This is the response by New York Times OpEd Writer Maureen Dowd (MoDo to her fans) on the "Fox News Sunday" show yesterday. The question came from Anchor Chris Wallace, who asked her how much damage Hillary Clinton will suffer from the leaked speeches she gave to Wall Street insiders.
I think it would have been lethal during the primaries, but now not so much because, you know, in many ways, she is the GOP candidate. She's the one who cuddles up to hedge funds, and she's the shill of Wall Street. So, it's only what we already knew.I guess the quip about Mrs Clinton being the GOP candidate is correct, if you view the GOP as being the way the Democrats portray it. On the other hand, you have the Republicans going into Black neighborhoods, telling the folks they are oppressed, by the Democrats.
At Professor Althouse's Blog Post we have a comment that links to Razzle Dazzle, from the Show Chicago. One line is, "How can they hear the truth above the roar?"
But, let's give Chris Wallace (almost) the last word, in which he commented to his show panel:
[T]here was also a passage in one of her big money speeches in which Clinton invokes Lincoln fighting for the 13th Amendment to abolish slavery and saying, you need both a public and a private position. This goes to the core, as I was talking to Maureen, about what people don't trust about this woman.Exit question: Do you think Mrs Clinton is like President Lincoln?
Hat tip to Ann Althouse.
