In the book she also admits to occasionally letting Bill 'style' her hair.

I haven't seen or thought about that movie in years. It had basically no long-term impact on me. That it had this much of an impact on Hillary is kind of frightening.

I'm more impressed that she's publishing Facebook posts in a book about running for president. She's now delving into Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs territory.

People not going bankrupt because they or their kids get sick is a crazy idea to her.

Holy smokes, she's deferring to Facebook quotes to justify shiat.

Jesus, I'm not sure why people are so confused by this. Are you all mentally retarded, or something? Whether it's a valid comparison or not, it's not really that hard to figure out. Holy Christ, I didn't realize that the entire internet had gotten this stupid overnight.

If Clinton said anything they have to belittle it, it's second nature by this point.  Her team is doing a phenomenal job of drumming up interest in her memoir though.  This book is better as much press as major hurricanes it seems.

Writing about the complexities of Korea and the world post nuclear war is way too hard.

Hillary is running in 2020 isn't she?

I don't remember McCain or Romney getting this much press 10 months out from their loss and McCain was still a senator.

This farking book and book tour is going to do nothing to help Hillary or the Democrats.  If anything it'll re-open old wounds in the party.  Other than maybe some book revenue for her, there is no benefit.

So go away you leprous canker.  I will personally donate 50$ if you stfu for the rest of your days.  Go spend your and Bill's hundreds of millions of dollars in peace but for God's sake shut up.  You're a greedy, out-of-touch two-time loser who --- with literally decades of government experience and a huge fund-raising advantage --- still managed to lose to a complete lout with ZERO experience and LESS charisma than you.

Go away.

Keep in mind it was news that a cottage that the Clinton's stayed at, not owned sold recently and Fox and WSJ all ran stories on it.  Trump constantly talks about her and so does Fox news.  Clinton is always in the press and most of the time it's not because she did anything.  She mentioned on twitter she liked Verrit, that became national news and Verrit was immediately hacked.

She wrote a book, that deserves press not the insane amount it's getting but all the other stuff isn't on her.

On the one hand, it's obvious and people who don't understand it are morons.

On the other hand, I'm not sure that comparing yourself to a character that was a murderous drifter is the best move to assure everyone that your ideas were great.

On the other other hand, that was an excellent scene and merits bringing up; since current movies suck and don't resonate with anyone, that's a decent reference.

It was a quality comedy and Cameron Diaz was easy on the eyes.  I might be in a minority, but it is my favorite Farrelly Brothers comedy.

It's something one her campaign aides designed, it's mostly harmless but since she dared to tweet about it's come under all kinds of scrutiny and was of course immediately hacked.

They should have cut out about 3 or 4 minutes. It would have played everything Thanksgiving for decades.

Hillary Clinton herself didn't circulate that photo. Campain aides in her Iowa office did, and they were fired. It's doubtful Clinton knew anything about it until after the fact. She ran a terrible campaign in 2008, but saying she "circulated" that photo is silly.
 
2017-09-07 10:44:00 AM  
There's a lot to unpack here, including the fact that (A) the movie reference is about 19 years late, making it seem as though Team Clinton's well of pop cultural knowledge is stuck in, well, the Clinton era

Really?  I guess people never reference The Godfather?  Star Wars?  Gone with the Wind?  Wizard of Oz?  Sorry she didn't reference the CHiPs reboot.

This sort of criticism for criticism's sake is what really happened in 2016.  Hillary Clinton was the subject of a generation long witch hunt.  When her husband announced his candidacy waaaay back in 1991, the republicans correctly identified her as a threat.  Even during Bill's presidency, she was targeted more than him.  Hell, an entire news channel was created just to destroy her.

Please.  John "Meet the Press" McCain is the very definition of a media whore.  He's drawn to a tally light like a moth to flame.

I enjoyed it but liked Kingpin better.
