If I hear one more time what a formidable presidential candidate Mrs. Cuckold--excuse me, Mrs. Clinton--will make, I am going to have a spontaneous cow. Formidable? Hmmm...Let's look at the reason Mrs. Clinton gives for thinking Judge Alito is unfit to be on The Supreme Court. It's instructive as an example of just how easy it is to take her down. Quoth the Senatress: "I do not think Judge Alito would advance the principles Americans hold most dear." Note the verb "advance". She admits to the entire world her belief that the role of a Supreme Court Justice is not to adjudicate but to advance principles (read "agendas"). And of course, these agendas--I mean principles--are the ones "Americans hold most dear". As Rush says, Stop The Tape. Her Hillaryness doesn't say "principles MOST Americans hold dear". She says "principles Americans hold MOST dear." Of course the collective selective hearing of most journalists will construe--and report--her meaning as "principles MOST Americans hold dear" but she didn't say that, did she? And the reason she didn't is because--let's give credit where credit is due--she can't and she knows she can't. The Americans she's talking about are only the Americans like her: the feminists, the elites and academia. And while I grudgingly admit that these assorted freaks are Americans, they sure as shootin' don't represent most Americans. After all, the agenda--er, principle--MOST dear to her buddies is abortion and all the pariphernallia of false liberation that goes with it. And if what happened in Washington last weekend is any indication, that just ain't playing in Peoria these days. The sort of rhetorical twist we're dissecting here worked beautifully in the old media (see Dowd, Maureen on Mr. Clinton's lying and how we all knew it was lying because he sent us silent signals). But the new media will expose Mrs. Cuckold's mendacity for what it is as surely as the ultrasound has exposed abortion for what it is. Excuse me, I have to go have that cow now.
