Failed Presidential candidate and former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton is back in the news. Not because she has done anything worthwhile, per se, but because she keeps making ludicrous comments about perceived unfair treatment because she is a woman.
Speaking at Rutgers University, where by the way she was paid less money than the illustrious Snooki from the hit show The Jersey Shore, Sec. Clinton lashed out critics who tell her to be quiet.
"I was really struck by how people said that to me - you know, mostly people in the press, for whatever reason - mostly, 'Go away, go away,'" Clinton said Thursday during an event at Rutgers University.
"And I had one of the young people who works for me go back and do a bit of research. They never said that to any man who was not elected. I was kind of struck by that," Clinton said.
Clinton's remarks came in response to a question from Eagleton Institute of Politics' director Ruth Mandel about the former Democratic presidential nominee's reaction to those who say she should "get off the public stage and shut up."
"I'm really glad that, you know, Al Gore didn't stop talking about climate change," Clinton said to applause.
"And I'm really glad John Kerry went to the Senate and became an excellent secretary of State," the former first lady continued. "And I'm really glad John McCain kept speaking out and standing up and saying what he had to say. And for heavens sakes, Mitt Romney is running for the Senate," Clinton said.
Of course, a simple Google search would show this to be anything but true.
This is all pretty sad. Sec. Clinton is starting to sound a lot like Uncle Rico from the film, Napoleon Dynamite. Uncle Rico has a penchant for telling his 32 year-old nephew, Kip Dynamite, that if his football coach had put him in 4th quarter back in '82, things would have been different. He would have won state.
The visiting Uncle Rico goes onto basically ruin Napoleon Dynamite's chances of ever being considered a normal guy because of his attempts to sell tupperware throughout Napoleon's hometown. This leads to the following exchange:
Napoleon Dynamite: Grandma just called and said you're supposed to go home.
Uncle Rico: She didn't tell me anything.
Napoleon Dynamite: Too bad, she said she doesn't want you here when she gets back because you've been ruining everybody's lives and eating all our steak.
Uncle Rico: I'm not goin' anywhere, Napoleon.
Napoleon Dynamite: Get off my property!
Uncle Rico: It's a free country. I can do whatever I want.
Napoleon Dynamite: Get off my property or I'll call the cops on you.
Uncle Rico: Well then do it! Go on!
Napoleon Dynamite: Maybe I will, GOSH!
I guess Uncle Rico is right. It is a free country. Sec. Clinton can do whatever she wants. She should at least be aware she is harming her fellow Democrats' chances of being re-elected. The more she talks, the more she ruins all of their lives and eats all their steak.
