Jason Linkins over at HuffingtonPost has a brilliant piece up. It is a master template from which all opinion pieces written about Hillary Clinton’s run for the Presidency will be (and already have been since her formal announcement), crafted. It is a brilliant piece of brutal, accurate dissection of everything wrong with the mainstream media and the political pundit class in this nation at this point in our history.
This week, we were faced with the daunting prospect of having to make sense out of all the Hillary Clinton think pieces that were microwaved into existence after she decided to formally enter the 2016 presidential race. And there were so many pieces of “think” to go through! Millions of microscopic particles of thinking! It was all way too tiresome.
So, in lieu of adding to an already crowded canon, what follows is a Frankenstein’s monster of everyone else’s hasty Hillary musings. It is one brutal Hillary Clinton think piece to rule them all — here presented with apologies to Jason O. Gilbert, whose joke we have stolen.
Thanks for this piece. It saves me the trouble of reading any further opinion piece for the next 1.5 years, as your template has summarized them completely already. All I can say is, when does early voting start so I can vote not only for Hillary Clinton, but ONLY Democratic candidates.
Hades will freeze over before I vote for any GOP candidate. Ever. They work on behalf of one group, and one group only, the 1% richest, the members of the corporate plutocracy. They represent racism, sexism, misogyny, and homophobia, and rampant militant ignorant right wing Xtian religion. Seriously. Is there a choice?
I also hope there is absolutely no primary challenge to Hillary Clinton. I do not want a single dime wasted on anything other than electing her, and not a Republican, in 2016.
By the way, the title of HuffingtonPost piece is an allusion, for those of you sad members of the human races who are not familiar with Lord of the Rings.
Within hours of Hillary Clinton’s announcement she was running, someone came up with this brilliant photo meme.
