Patterico's Pontifications


When The Solid Strength Of A Candidate Just Isn’t Enough

We should never underestimate the Democrat/American/human capacity for manufactured enthusiasm, and people persuading themselves that their preferred candidate isn’t merely the best choice among the options, but is the living, breathing embodiment of all good qualities. Hero worship, cult of personality, a refusal to acknowledge any flaws in the Great Leader . . . this habit won’t go away anytime soon, it seems.

Ain’t that the truth.

“From sea to shining sea, she’ll fight for liberty, she’s sexy and she’s strong, we’re gonna vote for Chelsea’s mom . . . ”

  1. Vote for Hillary because she has a vagina, or vote for her because she’s sexy and strong. Just vote for her dammit!

  2. OMG. There are no words.

  3. And yet, if done for anyone but the Chosen One, it would be called “objectification”. When life is so ridiculous, parody becomes impossible.

  4. Seeing this gem, I’m looking forward to seeing the new pajama boy commercial urging young people to discuss Hillary! with their parents and other family members when they’re home for Thanksgiving.

  7. Hillary has apparently decided to decline the kind invitation of Nutroots to attend their convention next month.

  8. We as a nation need to damn well figure out that the President isn’t some god-like figure who delivers us to salvation, he or she is simply somebody we hire on a four-year contract to serve as the executive. But it’s essential for the Big Government agenda that we believe that the executive working with Congress pass lots of legislation to fix everything that ails us, and that’s why Democrats are vested in the idea of the chief executive as a Superman or Superwoman. Otherwise we might just go back to electing the Calvin Coolidges of this country, not the Barack Obamas.

  9. But it is nice to see members of the Gay Men’s Chorus get some jobs on the side.

  11. Gay guys have a tendency to latch on to old women. Judy Baar-Topinka was a popular fag-hag too, and she was the head of the Republican wing of the Combine in Illinois. There must be some truth in the unresolved Oedipal Complex theory of male homosexuality.

  12. JD,

    At first I was just going to post this as a bit of a distraction from the frustrating at the Obamacare debacle, but when considering the linked quote, it made me realize a precedent was certainly set by the 2008 walk-on-water campaign of Obama. How could any boring every day “candidate” standing on solid principles alone, persuade voters of the value and worth of those principles and ideals and how they would benefit from them, even stand a chance? Saviors need only apply. Of course, it doesn’t matter a whit if there is any demonstrable supporting evidence. It’s now enough to just proclaim it and make the dumb sheep believe the candidate is someone godlike. Only he or she can save us…

  13. Words…cannot say…anything…

  14. That was about 3 minutes and 24 seconds too long.

    They really captured Hillary’s charisma in that cardboard cut out though.

  15. They really captured Hillary’s charisma in that cardboard cut out though.

    It really is her most effective campaign performance to date.

  16. Hillary! has the quimby vote nailed.

  17. I thought the Brokeback Mountain Cowboy song was better.

  18. LOL! That was the most absurd video. Speaking as an Independant, I do not think that video means what they think it means. Without really realizing it, their use of the phrase, “back in ’92” may very well evoke domething like “1892” in a young voter’s sensibilities.

  19. Felipe, I thought the same thing.

  20. I just watched the Chelsea’s Mom video again, right after dinner, on a full stomach. Biig mistake!

  21. Just had a debate with a Facebook friend about the lifetime accomplishments of Hillary! Rodham Clinton. He posted this piece from some weird blog. It lists 19 pieces of legislation that Hillary! sponsored which became law during her Senate career. Nine of them have to do with renaming federal post offices and a tenth bill encouraged some the national library to accept a bust of Sojourner Truth. And he pointed to this list as if it spoke to some glorious Senate career on par with Daniel Webster’s. Some people are just insistent upon believing that Hillary! is something that she isn’t.

  22. JVW, inquiring minds want to know—-were you aggravated enough with him to share this video with your facebook friend?

    elissa (c3113f)

  23. I think that is very well done and awesome. Best arguments I’ve heard for the collapse of our nation.

    I was afraid he would like it, and I just can’t have that on my conscience.

  25. Still /vomit

  26. “she’s sexy”

    I can hear Bill Clinton laughing harder than he ever has in his life.

  27. Goggles they do nothing

    I’m using the video as a diet aid. Every time I feel the urge to eat, I watch it.

  30. She is Woman, hear me snore
    because we’ve seen it all before
    and she can’t look at the people in the eye
    she will say such stupid things
    because it won’t mean anything
    to her fans becuz they love grey ladyparts
    oh-oh-oh yes, she tells lies
    but the media says “look…squirrel!”
    In Benghazi people died
    “Hey, be nice! she’s just a girl”
    If I could, I’d give her ass a kick
    She is wrong! She’s not invincible
    sad grey va-jay-jay

  31. All the trolls and leftists who ever posted here never had a chance. Their words were dead to me because of the lack of violins, white shirts and skinny ties until this magnificent video.

    Vote Hillary! Chelsea’s mom has got it going on. Vote now and vote often. For the ’90s and the children and Selma. I’m convinced.

    Ag80 (eb6ffa)

  32. I am praying that when Chelsea and Marc saw this for the first time they died of embarrassment and humiliation, and that they are now being mocked and taunted without mercy by their high fallutin’ friends and colleagues.
