A Spear Trap for 2016 - Hillary Clinton incapacitates her own party
The American Spectator ^ | June 16, 2014 | Scott McKay

As a presumptive presidential campaign launch, this was a clown show.

And it brings to mind an analogy of Clinton as a presidential candidate, one which not-infrequently appears in conservative-friendly movies like First Blood and Apocalypto.

Namely, that Clinton is a spring spear trap for the Democrats to contend with, and they’re quite likely to be impaled by her in 2016.

Understand that despite what you might see in film, the spear trap (or its cousin the Punji stick) is a jungle warfare device which, while potentially lethal, is most often intended to immobilize and incapacitate its victim, thus slowing the advance of an enemy through contested territory. Hillary’s lack of charisma, thorough improbity, and grating sense of entitlement have the same effect on her potential candidacy (and Democrat prospects for electoral victory) as spring-loaded and camouflaged wooden spikes.

The word “hard” should be avoided by all Clintons.

“Horrid Choices” would have been a superior choice of title, especially considering who the Republican nominee is likely to be.

C’mon guys, don’t let on that we’ve figured out what a hopeless candidate Hillary Clinton is. How I would love to watch a presidential debate between Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton, it would be the intellectual equivalent of the “Bambi versus Godzilla” short.

Hillary shares with John McCain and Mitt Romney the honor of having lost to the least qualified presidential candidate in history.

"five years of peripatetic Obama minioning and mysterious post-concussion convalescence to take her rightful place as the center of political attention. Clinton’s memoir Hard Choices, a title only coincidentally shared with a 1987 porn film"

Bwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

But for ‘her’ it would only be of the ‘strap-on’ kind.

“A Hillary implosion such as this week’s bungles portends would make them easy prey for a viable Republican nominee to vanquish.”

Stress the word “viable.” This might indeed be Romney’s chance. (No, I am not putting him forward, just saying that if he had a chance a Clinton candidacy would be it.)

Lucky for her and the Dems is the pathetic quality of GOP candidates. She's a shoo in.

Hillary could easily go down in the primaries.
She’s weaker than 2008 for a lot of reasons.

But the Dem nominee in November is almost a lock.
With the Blue Wall at 242, all they need is Florida or Ohio.
And they’ve been demonstrably effective at vote fraud in both locations.

Still laughing (but so hoping it remains true) at the closing sentences:

... the Democrats might as well be impaled on the Clinton 2016 spear. They’re utterly dependent on a woman whose new autobiography is a poorly-reviewed, discount-bin booby trap of a presidential launch.

The media has anointed her president already. Hillary Warren 8 years of melanin uber alles to give way to feminine genitalia uber alles. Who counts the votes? Who will certify the votes? What democratic liberal secretary of state will contest illegal alien voters.

Coming out as pro-choice again in August of 2012, after winning the nomination, and then running pro-choice ads in Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin is what cost Romney those states.
