Skip to comments.A Taxonomy of Hillary HATERS
Posted on 01/14/2008 9:23:17 AM PST by rface
Hating presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has become such a national pastime, writer and radio producer Jack Hitt invented a verb for it: "hillarating."
After her victory in New Hampshire, the former first lady and Democratic senator from New York appeared with a maniacal expression on the front page of one New York paper under the headline "Back from the Dead."
TV anchormen use minutes of airtime poking fun at her looks. On the streets, feminists apologize before supporting her in a gossip session. Even artists have created racy sculptures of her.
"I am very clearly someone who's gone through a tremendous amount of criticism," Clinton tells NBC's Meet the Press. "That's fine, I'm more than willing to shoulder that."
Hillary haters see many types of Hillary Clinton, according to Hitt. There's the "Diane Feinstein" Hillary, a centrist hiding as a liberal. The "Tammy Wynette" Hillary stayed with her husband after the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Then there's the "Lady Macbeth", the "Lisa Simpson" and finally, the cold and experienced "Ms. Frigidaire."
Just what is it that leads so many people to make a sport of hating Hillary Clinton? Is it her politics, her gender or her personality? Hitt says there is no single reason. As he writes in the current issue of Mother Jones, "No part of her life, however sacred, is off limits."
On our blog, an open thread: Why do so many people hate Hillary Clinton?
......Lil' Miss Hottie..........
Has tax payer funded NPR ever done an expose of the Bush Haters?

NPR and Mother Jones? I’ll let someone else read the article.
Hillary: at her warmest, she is cold; at her most altruistic, she is self-serving; at her brightest, she remembers nothing; at her most loving, she is hateful.
I will never forget how abusive she was toward the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, when he protested about the burden Hillarycare would place upon small businesses: “I can’t be responsible for every undercapitalized enterprise in this country”, she said, icily. That is Hillary. I think she was all the meaner to him because he was a black man, off the plantation.
Oh, and, while my hatred of her is very broad, sometimes nebulous, it might be best expressed in my new name for her: the NOMINATRIX...
Oh, and at her most sincere, she is duplicitous...
This reminds me a little of when they kept talking about
Jackie Kennedy being the most beautiful women in the world.
Everyone could see she wasn’t. Hilliary is obviously
the most evil woman in the world and everyone pretends
You’re right — Jackie always appeared a bit bony and angular to me (like it might hurt me if I hugged her); exotic and chic, yes she was; beautiful? not for my tastes.
Oh, but what a voice she had!
I liked Jackie. She never overloaded her mouth.
NPR? Justifying their licking of Hitlerys’ boot? Who would of thunk it?
NPR and Mother Jones? Ill let someone else read the article.
When you read either of those, think of the exercise as recon...
It’s all there for anyone who can read - all the AR scandals, the hiring of detectives to intimidate the bimbos and enemies, the way she treated Secret Service personal, the billing records lies, the travelgate firing lies, the pardons, the illegal Chinese money... 35 years of abusing power and trampling over anyone who stood in her way.
Take an hour and read up on this hideous ogre, then tell me you want a person like that in the highest office in the land.
Wake up you stupid freaking morons !!!
I’ve noticed that most right-wing blogs (loosly defined) allow comments, while most left-wing ones don’t. Transitioning from right to left, a growing number screen comments - and approve fewer.
Recon sucks when your enemy is fighting in the sewer.
How about when they called Jackie “brave” when she “tried to get help” by climbing out of the limo during the JFK assassination”?
It is understandable to try to seek cover but Lenny Bruce called it right when he said that she wasn’t going for “help”.
She was the world's most expensive contract prostitute.
She openly married Onassis for money, and in their wedding 'contract' it even stipulated how many 'connubial visits' he was to get.
She was highly paid for access to her lady parts, and made an exclusive long-term contract with a single, very rich customer.
There is no absolute guage of good and evil to the left, no God, no morality. Thus adjectivesand phrases that imply or impute good or evil have no meaning beyond "for us" or "against us" and there is no relative seriousness to them. Adjectives that imply "good" are ALL applicable and applied to "us" and adjectives that imply things bad or unpleasant are ALL applicable and applied to those who disagree. If someone, especially someone who is not part of the organization, disagrees then he is not only "wrong" he can also be called a "racist" and a "misogynist' and a murderer and a rapist and a NAZI, a Hillary hater, and anything else because all of those words, to a leftist, are but synonyms of "not on our side" and have no other content. For that reason it is silly for people to get upset at the nature of the epithets hurled at them by this age's Democrats or Greenies or Communists, leftists and atheists who have renounced the Judaeo-Christian cultural tradition. They mean precisely nothing beyond that single dichotomy.
