Proving that there is no depth to which they are willing to sink in the pursuit of votes, the vulgar campaign of Hillary! Rodham Clinton, the once and future inevitable next President of the United States, released an insipid blog post on her campaign site (warning: this link takes you to, you know, Hillary!’s actual campaign site). Even worse, the post “7 things Hillary Clinton has in common with your abuela” [Spanish for “grandmother”] is written in that vaguely illiterate Buzzfeed or Mashable style, complete with the a numerated list and cloying GIFs so essential to the reading habits of the low-information voter.
But a funny thing happened to Hillary! on la camina a el barrio. Instead of the post being greeted by warm murmurs of assent from the multiculti crowd, her ham-handed attempt to ingratiate herself with a community in which she needs to do well in order to seize the prize that has eluded her appears to mostly have inspired a general sense of mockery, and the accusations of “Hispandering.” Twitchy reports on the emergence of the hashtag #notmyabuela. Best of all, she’s being slammed both from the right:
My grandmothers weren't shrill harpies. They also worked hard at real jobs and didn't let any Ambassadors die on their watch. #NotMyAbuela

and from the social justice left:
Our experiences cannot be equated to those of a rich and privileged white woman. It's shameful and disrespectful to try #NotMyAbuela

It’s remarkable, isn’t it, how just at the moment when Hillary! obviously has a clear and unobstructed path to the Democrat nomination she figures out a way to stumble over her own feet. Do you suppose she is starting to worry about a possible match-up with an actual de buena fe Hispanic Republican like Ted Cruz or Mario Rubio?
