Gail Collins, "Rush to Judgment": Hands Off Hillary!

In her latest and greatest New York Times op-ed entitled "Rush to Judgment," Gail Collins, at a loss for filler without Romney and Seamus, focuses her prodigious wit upon Republican presidential hopefuls Jeb Bush, Rick Santorum, Carly Fiorina, Scott Walker, Lindsey Graham, Rick Perry, Chris Christie, and Donald Trump. Sorry, but there's nothing worth quoting.

Notably absent from Collins choice of victims is Marco Rubio, who recently became Washington Post headline news after he spent $3,000 to replace his old refrigerator. How can someone, sending four children to private school and having trouble making ends meet, hope to become president of the United States if he struggles with his household budget? Remarkable how this sizzling hot piece of information from WaPo places the alleged multi-million dollar sale of influence peddling by a certain couple in perspective!

But why isn't Rubio on Collins's laundry list? Maybe because Democrats are terrified by the prospect of Hillary having to face Rubio in November 2016, and it's best not to remind anyone of his name. Out of sight, out of mind.

Does Collins even consider addressing Clinton's use of a private email server, which placed the lives of American diplomatic personnel in jeopardy? Not a chance. Hands off Hillary!

But not all of America's "progressive" pundits are granting Hillary a free pass. To her credit, Ruth Marcus writes today in a Washington Post opinion piece entitled "Hillary Clinton’s unseemly speechifying":

"Again with the speeches. The gross excessiveness of it all, vacuuming up six-figure checks well past the point of rational need or political seemliness. The ceaseless drip of information that ought to have already been released, now being presented with a self-serving back pat over transparency."

Still, Marcus says that she is "a fan of Hillary Clinton." Tell me, Ruth, what would it take for you not to be a "fan"? Hypothetically, if she were to be found guilty of a dozen chainsaw murders throughout the Middle Atlantic states? Take your time and write me an answer. The readers of this blog would be delighted to know.

  1. Perhaps the new questions about Hillary's unseen management skills will reduce her fan base, but they will still face the threat of banishment for any criticism of any Democrat. (and thus will write they are a fan)

    Sorry, JG, it will not be Marco Rubio at the top of any ticket in 2016. He probably bought a refrigerator made in Mexico.
