Including and especially the fawning mainstream media.
In NRO, Johnah Goldberg has captured a moment in time, the first day on the campaign trail. (well, I mean the first day on the official campaign trail)
“We’ve never seen [Hillary] get a burrito before,” remarks Mark Halprin.
Nothing surpasses the electric excitement of eating a burrito. Let’s be real, they won’t be so giddy a while after she consumed said burrito. It might bring tears to their eyes.
But this was the patented mentality of the swooning Left in covering Obama, too. Watch him eat an ice cream cone; watch as he assails the bowling alley with a gutter ball. Tune in as Obama visits a sandwich shop. Oh, the memories of which leave me nauseous.
Pay attention as the media does what they do best: weave her into an attractive, likeable, if playful, favorite candidate. Naturally, substance is not even on the menu. It can’t be. It’s all eye candy making a sow into a silk purse. A well-known sow but sow nonetheless.
To borrow the standard phrase of late night TV host Tom Snyder in his program:
“Fire up a colortini, sit back, relax, and watch the pictures, now, as they fly through the air.”
“I’m doing something too… I’m running for president,” says Hillary. And away we go!
