Empress Hillary has no clothes. You don't believe me? Read Maureen Dowd's latest New York Times op-ed entitled "Joe Biden in 2016: What Would Beau Do?" Savaging the former secretary of state, Dowd declares:
"A PATTERN of cutting corners, a patina of entitlement and inevitability, has led to this.
Destroying digital messages and thwarting official investigations while acting all innocent about wiping out sensitive material.
Avoiding reporters after giving disingenuous explanations at uncomfortable news conferences. Claiming egregious transgressions are a private matter and faux controversy while sending out high-power lawyers and spin doctors to deflect and minimize.
. . . .
[I]n the case of Hillary, problems of style and substance are starting to scuff her sheen of inevitability."
Who's preparing to step up and take her on in the Democratic primaries? Dowd points to Joe Biden. And although Biden is, on occasion, a clown - you will of course recall Biden's recommendation to a mother to buy a shotgun for protection - his antics do not rival those of Donald Trump.
Be it at Beau's behest or otherwise, Joe, welcome to the race.
My advice to Hillary: Get dressed, get divorced (What's all this talk about the Energizer, who brings cookies to the Secret Service detail?) and get yourself a new life.
