Get Ready for the All-Hail-Hillary Movies
National Review ^ | July 29, 2013 | John Fund

Posted on 07/29/2013 5:41:41 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

I wasn’t surprised to learn that sometime before the 2016 election, NBC will be releasing a four-hour miniseries about Hillary Clinton starring Academy Award nominee Diane Lane. What did surprise me was that the series will cover none of her life before the Monica Lewinsky scandal, which took place five years into her husband’s second term as president and when Hillary was already 51 years old. It’s as if her first half-century will be airbrushed away, along with the many scandals that dogged her in those decades.

While the series will still have a lot of ground to cover — impeachment and the “vast right-wing conspiracy” she suspected, her successful 2000 Senate race, her loss to Barack Obama in the 2008 primaries, her time as secretary of state and her role in the Benghazi debacle — it’s striking that so much rich material will be excluded even before footage is discarded on the cutting-room floor.

Barry isn’t even gone yet and the Hollyweird left is already praising Slick Willie’s wife as the new messiah. This is getting old.

Who would want to even watch such movies? They should lose a fortune on these ventures.

“Who would want to even watch such movies? They should lose a fortune on these ventures.”

The ratings will be very interesting and informative. If she can’t beat a rerun of “I Love Lucy” it will tell us what her chances are in 2016. I hope she and her supporters burn a lot of money. The more, the better.

It’s going to take some airbrushing to remove the wrinkles. How old is she now? I don’t think even a Lifestyle Lift will help.

For the left-wing media, POTUS Obama exists no more!!! He is a lost cause....most Americans with a half a brain have tuned Obama out. They do not believe a word that he utters!!! So.....a new Queen Hillary must be crowned!!! Fact is, however...the viewership of the “Hillary miniseries” will be marginal at best. She too....in the realm of present America, is passe’!!!

You know, the GOP has plenty of money and could fund good movies that tell the real story. Imagine a movie about Madam Benghazi that asked real questions about Vince Foster and how he ended up in Ft Marcy Park, carrying through to today where she gets her “3AM phone call”, lets it go to voicemail (because she can’t be bothered), and four American Heroes are slaughtered.

I wish that were true. I think Obama is more dangerous now than ever before. He does not even need to consult the media anymore. He can just do whatever he wants and he knows they will never rerport it, or else.

The Saint HilLIARy cannonization is just the start of phase two.

Diane Lane as Hillary??

That's got to be the most ludicrous bit of overcasting since Ross Perot chose Richard Crenna to play himself in On Wings of Eagles

Why would Ross Perot ask Richard Crenna to play Richard Crenna in a movie? (just being a wisenheimer this morning)

In one way you are absolutely correct!!! POTUS Obama knows he is finished, that he will never get assembled, massive, adoring crowds anymore. Shucks he only attends closely guarded and politically controlled public events. His spech in Illinois last week was received by a boring, tepid reception from avid loyal Democrats.

Thus, he is more dangerous, because he has nothing to lose!!! He is already toast!!! He is quite happy with himself, setting Black and minority Americans back fifty years or more, destroying the USA economy and working hard to destroy our wonderful country. He will not succeed!!! IMHO....I believe, most Americans feel he has not been good for themselves or our country. Ya know....there is no such thing as a free lunch!!!

Obama needs to be removed from office by his own Democrat Party, demanding his resignation or impeaching him!!! If not, The mid -term elections in 2014 are going to bring about a devastating loss for Democrats across the board!!! America has had enogh of Obama, the failed, anti-American POTUS!!!

What’s needed is an accurate, well-paced documentary on the whole “Clinton-Lewinsky” affair. It’s release should be about 2-weeks before the “Hillary is a hero” films.

Bill and Hill are shilling on Huma for her “stand by your man” strategy. For the life of me, I can’t see any difference in what Huma is doing in regard to her truly “creepy a**ed cracker” of a husband from what Hillary did with Bill back during Lewinsky-gate.

Diane Lane is going to have to commit to eating 18 donuts each morning in order to credibly wear those pantsuits.

I prefer non-fiction films:

“HILLARY THE MOVIE”

Hillary The Movie is complete! The movie you’ve been waiting for is here and exploding onto the scene! With nearly 40 in-depth interviews with experts, opinion makers, and many of the people who personally locked horns with the Clintons, this is the film you need!

The cast to end all casts includes: Dick Morris, Ann Coulter, Newt Gingrich, Jeff Gerth, Buzz Patterson, Michael Barone, Billy Dale, Cyrus Nowrasteh, Tony Blankley, Dick Armey, Bay Buchanan, Joe Connor, Mark Levin, Frank Gaffney, Peter Paul, Gary Aldrich, Dan Burton, John Mica, Michael Medved, Kathleen Willey, Kate O’Beirne, Larry Kudlow and more!

If you want to hear about the Clinton scandals of the past and present, you have it here!

Hillary The Movie is the first and last word in what the Clintons want America to forget!

“They should lose a fortune on these ventures.”

I’m sure they don’t need to worry about losing money. At a minimum, China and Saudi Arabia will cover costs. Doubtless, they will also cover a nice profit.

I’m really hoping that someone can convince Ann Coulter to wear a wig and a fat suit, and do a parody short of the Hillary movie before it is released.

Posting that thing to the Internet a few weeks before the Hillary movie is released could just suck the wind out of it, by reminding everyone of what a nasty, foul mouthed villainous monster she really is.

Barry the Narcissist isn’t going to like having to share the limelight ...... this is going to get “interesting” from that perspective as disappointment in him grows and the Dems/Libs/Progs shift their attention from the First Black President to the First Woman President. Barry is in it for himself and only himself ... getting her elected in 2016 is not on his radar screen so I expect some major temper tantrums of some sort or another from him when the “adoration shift” well and truly occurs (it is starting now).

Her history of criminal conduct goes all the way back to her removal from a Watergate committee.

That should be the starting point in a timeline of Hillary's lawlessness.

Reminds me of when during the Iraq war, Hollywood made one anti-war movie after another. Each one an expensive flop.

Each one propaganda for the cause.

Not sure but I am a man going on seventy and if I thought I looked as old as she does I would go into a fit of extreme depression.

In this modern IDIOCRACY I would not be surprised if Jamie Foxx appeared as a serious candidate. The only thing that WOULD surprise me is if someone who makes sense appears to have a chance.

You’re correct of course.

A guy named Baraq Hussein had to be one of the most improbable POTUS candidates ever....and he won....twice.

You and I must be related, I have commented before on FR concerning that same subject. It is amazing how many have that exactly assbackwards. I think it has something to do with dishonest media coverage. Clinton himself has actually been preserved in video saying, “They TRIED to impeach me”, as if he had not actually been impeached. Apparently a lot of people assume that Nixon WAS impeached because he left office, they forget that he resigned before there was any vote on possible impeachment. The same ones think Clinton was NOT impeached because he refused to do the decent thing and resign as Nixon did and the Senate lacked the backbone to vote to remove him. I have never been a Nixon defender but at least Tricky had a sense of shame, something Slick clearly never had.
