Bill Clinton reminded America what the future will look like if
What Bill did the other day in meeting privately with Attorney General
He wasn't as loud, say, as the hair of the barbarian
It looks like Bill Clinton wanted to be quiet, subtle and ambiguous, like the Clintons were years ago when he was president.
And it is the way they will conduct their business should Hillary command the
They're sidewinders, these two.
So the other day Bill Clinton learned that Lynch was at the airport in
Lynch later said they didn't discuss the investigation of Hillary:
"Our conversation was a great deal about grandchildren, it was primarily social about our travels and he mentioned golf he played in
Note the operative word:
You could drive a fleet of dump trucks through "primarily." Don't you just love it when lawyers talk dirty?
But then I guess it all depends on what your definition of primarily is.
What Bill did was quiet, so it wasn't as loud as the hair of The Donald, was it?
The hair of The Donald fills many news columns written by establishment types -- pro-Hillary Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans -- because hair is so easy.
It's excellent click-bait, rather like overripe cheese for catfish. Just put it on the hook, they swallow it whole. All you have to do is heave those catfish into the boat and call yourself an angler (or an independent thinker).
And what Bill did wasn't like those legions of liberal American establishment pundits ripping their hair out while shaming the English for the Brexit vote.
They denounced the Brexit vote and the people of
Shaming does have its virtues, I suppose, if you're an establishment meat puppet worried that the Brexit vote foreshadows problems here for the only American establishment candidate, Democrat
Calling the English stupid for rejecting the status quo -- just as millions of Americans are called stupid for doing the same here -- is also very much like that overripe cheese.
Just put your fingers into that creamy goop and roll some into a ball. Put it on the hook, throw out line and begin typing the words "racism" or "xenophobia."
All you need is oil, a frying pan, a place to publish and a Twitter account.
But the meeting between Bill and Loretta had nothing to do with hair or race. It had to do with the subtle projection of terrifying power.
And with Hillary under investigation by her office, and with her boss, President Obama, having already endorsed Mrs. Clinton, Lynch made a terrible mistake.
She shouldn't have talked to Clinton about anything. Instead, she should have said:
"Bill, may I call you Bill? I can't have any kind of conversation with you in private. It would be wrong. But if you'd like to sit with FBI agents and talk about your wife's illegal emails and how they relate to your epic bank account and your
But she didn't. So she deserves to be made a public fool.
The problem for Democrats in all of this is that the Clintons are considered by most Americans to be liars. Not just pedestrian liars, either, but Olympian liars.
When news of the Bill Clinton/Lynch meeting became public, Republicans predictably skewered the attorney general, Democrats predictably defended her and Trump was predictably outraged.
Lynch bore the brunt of it. But what about Bill?
He's the spouse of the Democratic candidate for president. He's a former lawyer,
I'd like you to imagine Bill -- after the baby talk about grandchildren was done -- looking at Lynch, biting his lip, saying something like:
"So, Loretta, what are your plans for the future?"
You wouldn't need a neon sign. He'd mean a future with Hillary as president, Bill at her side, the two of them ruling the world with power to reward friends and destroy enemies once again.
Bill and Hillary have shown us who they are. They've spent years showing us.
And now they want to show us again, and again.
