Chris Wallace brings out the real Bill and Hillary each time he interviews one of them.
For those who have ever visited Clintonland, its sometimes hard to recognize the slickly-scripted, post-White House media personalities of the Clintons: the affable, smiling Hillary seen on the campaign trial or the laid back, take-it-as-it-comes Bill who periodically surfaces for softball interviews.
But every once in a while, theres a rare moment of clarity. That happened last year when Wallace interviewed the former president. At the end of the interview, Bill lost it. Suddenly the veneer was off, exposing the enraged, snarling, lunging Bill accusing Wallace of do[ing] his nice little right wing hit job when he forced Clinton to address his inability to capture or kill bin Laden.
Not a pretty sight.
And Wallace did it again in his recent interview of Hillary. Asked about the extreme partisan politics espoused by her and her husband, the real Hillary challenged Wallace. Well, Chris, if you'd walked even a day in our shoes over the last 15 years I'm sure you'd understand."
Hillary preceded her passing moment of reality by a loud, inappropriate and mirthless laugh a scary sound that was somewhere between a cackle and a screech. She was quick to follow it with a scripted recitation about how she wants to rise above partisanship. (Of course) But, in between, we saw a fleeting glimpse of the pervasive sense of victimization and self-righteousness that even now underscores the vicious partisanship with which both Clintons play the game of politics.
Amazingly, they seem to genuinely believe that they ar e still the targets of a vast right-wing conspiracy and that they are alone and under attack despite their manifest virtue and singular desire to do good.
You dont see this authenticity very often. Hillarys handlers have taken great pains to teach her the art of concealment, hiding her raw partisanship behind a smile and, when necessary, even a forced laugh. A laugh thats often too long and too loud.
And so, at the beginning and the end of the Wallace interview, Hillary sounded just like a laughing hyena. Watch the video on FOX News or YouTube. You wont laugh.
Its part of the Hillary defense. Just as Hillarys answers are scripted, so is her "spontaneous" laughter. This is truly learned behavior laughing or pretending to laugh at will. Over the past 15 years, shes perfected the art of responding to people, questions and networks that she doesnt like. In the past, she would sneer and answer sarcastically, as in, Maybe I should have stayed home and baked cookies. But those days are over. Now she smiles constantly and dissolves into a flood of loud giggles. Its been a big part of her media training.
The mainstream media hasnt had much to say about the laughing candidate. But can you imagine if Rudy Giuliani responded to a network interviewer by laughing loudly and hysterically for five seconds? No doubt The New York Times would seriously wonder about his state of mind. But they dont find it odd with Hillary.
Itll likely be a long time before we see the real Hillary again. So next time you hear her special laugh, think about what it really means.
Excellent observation - I hadn’t thought of that...SO TRUE!
Halloween doth come much too early methinks.
Rise above partisanship? Oh, please.
And how about that laugh of hers? Oy.
It doesn’t matter: the American people still want the Clintons, warts and all.
Of course they're not going to find anything odd or wrong with her laughter. The Times is carrying her water.
Hollywood is crazy. The Oscar and the Emmy should have gone to the Clintons, not Owlgore.
cackle cackle cackle
The most alarming thing that I have heard on TV in years was the Toe-Sucker describing himself as “Conservative,” and then Alan Colmes being shrewd enough to get him to expand on that comment.
The CLINTON CACKLE. I like it...its got a nice ring to it.
The Clintons are the patron saints of “Progressiveland”.
“the American people still want the Clintons, warts and all.”
The portion of the American people who want Federal handouts, want the Clintons.
I hear it more as a derisive, contrived belly-laugh... akin to the one by DeNiro in the remake of Cape Fear. (Click)
Dick Morris said last night on Hannity and Skeletor that the first thing Hillary would do if elected President is either double the capital gains tax to 30% or completely get rid of it and have it taxed as ordinary income. He said in light of this, the stock market will crash due to the massive selloff and that the first week of her Presidency it would be “Black Wednesday.”
At the very least, something this dumb would simply drive more businesses out of the country and put the economy into a recession.
I truly believe these people have screws loose....They are very frightening. Talking a redneck saying” them peoples are one can short of a six pack”.
Don’t be so hard on Ms. Hillary as she is simply practicing for an audition for some role in the “Wizard of Oz” stage play. She already has her monkeys.
I have heard better sounds in the bathroom.
Not dumb at all. This cackling witch knows precisely what she's doing...she wants everyone poor & dependent on the government.
Except her fellow elites & assorted euro-trash, of course.
Let’s see...The Clintons are victims...
....not Billy Dale and the Travel Office crew she fired...Not the bilked Whitewater Investors...not Willey, Jones, Broaddrick and other prey...not Foster, Parks, and other DEAD people assocaited with covering for them.
The next time Wllace hears that laugh, he’ll be standing against a wall.
‘It doesnt matter: the American people still want the Clintons, warts and all.’
There is nothing to support this statement. On his best political day, Bill Clinton received 49% of the available votes.
And was Impeached afterwards.
Can you imagine what it must be like to be her? You can see she is pained by the necessity to conceal her true self. She’s not a spring chicken, the clock is ticking. Wasting her life on being a phony in order to obtain a power that, if she succeeds, is really not her.
Not being a TV watcher, I had never heard that cackle before, though I had heard about it here.
Even without context, you can tell it's fake - it comes from the throat, whereas a real laugh comes from somewhere deeper.
I suppose it's been calculated (by somebody) to make her appear human.
"The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that you've got it made."
Photo of the year!!!
And after that, he wasn't just "Conservative." He was a "Republican" way back in Arkansas, when he was working for Bill, and they were still friends. This was was presumably before Bill punched him in the Governor's office.
And then he was a Republican before he even met Bill. I don't think any of us ever had the slightest idea...
Ah, but I think the New York Times did a piece on the “Cackle”....anyone see it? Medved said Gail Collins did a Cackle Piece that was reaaly hard hitting.
I don't get that sense. I think 40-45% of America wants the Clintons, warts and all. The rest want ANYBODY else. The one thing that can get here elected is the right third-party candidate, especially Ron Paul.
Read my tagline.
Next time you do get to see video of Hillary "laughing," be sure to watch her eyes. The eyes always give a fake laugh away, the same way the adam's apple always gave "Janet" Reno away.
I know we didn’t. Hubby and I often look at each other and say...I just couldn’t do that—be as Conservative as we are and be so polite or work for the other side—playing the game. We have principles and we’re stickin’ to ‘em.
“last night on Hannity and `Skeletor’”
LOLOLOLOL, heh, heh!!
Pretty bad when you crave the Presidency so bad you don’t know how to laugh. Watch GW when he laughs, its genuine.
Pray for W and Our Troops
I think I’ll record this and load it to my cellphone. Then, whenever I know I’ll be around my moonbat sister-in-law, I’ll use it as my primary ringtone.
Frustrating. Alarming. Deranged. And quite possibly true.
The very threat of Hillary winning could turn the economy south. The Republicans would be blamed for it, increasing the likelihood of Hillary winning.
A vicious circle, indeed.
49% was enough to get him another 4 years in the White House. If Giuliani is the Republican nominee in ‘08, and enough conservatives go 3rd party, it could be enough for Mrs. Bill Clinton.
...correction: both Frank Rich and Maureen Dowd were on Hillary's case this last week because of the laugh (it conjured up visions of the fake/robotic Algore).
What an utterly revolting thought.
I have always favored: "One taco short of a combo plate."
Dick Morris explained Hillary’s laugh on H&C last night.
He said she’s doing exactly what her coach told her to do. He said they are coached that whenever they are asked to answer a question that makes them angry, to physically laugh, because it defuses the body language that betrays anger.
Hillary’s long laughter indicates she came into the interview angry and belligerent. This is exactly what I thought, because the questions she laughed at were the ones I thought would make her really mad.
Can anyone list the questions that made her laugh? Those are the ones that she is furious with anger about.
This piece written by the guy who recently said that he was SURE Hillary would be our next POTUS....which was sometime AFTER he predicted she wouldn’t run.
Oh wait, we’re talking about billary here, different set of rules...right?
Nah. The Clintons would be fighting over who got Emmy, and poor Oscar would be left cooling his heels.....
There isn't going to be a 3rd party run. Dobson and others are just trying to put the fear of God into Giuliani, and force him to make concessions. Conservatives are not stupid, and everyong realizes what's at stake with another Clinton presidency.
