Thank God.

Hillary: ‘Talent is universal’; Chelsea shows absurdity is hereditary

http://twitter.com/#!/ScottLofquist/status/514527871679733760

The Clinton Global Initiative put two of the many women in Bill Clinton’s life on stage to talk about “Reimagining Impact,” whatever that means. Just pick two buzzwords out of a hat why don’t you. Dare to reimagine: Hillary Clinton offers ‘profound’ vision for leadership [Vine]

“Empowering women” was part of the discussion. Who better to talk about empowering women than a woman who rose to political power by riding her husband’s coattails and one who achieved immediate professional success by being their daughter?

Having traveled the world as Sec State, Hillary Clinton said she's learned that "talent is universal, but "opportunity is not."

Talent is not universal, no matter how many participation trophies you hand out. Hasn’t she heard of Nickelback?

@redsteeze Perfect reaction. Ne'er has a gif so well embodied a proper response as this.

@redsteeze See? Totally not out of touch. Same worries shared by working families, you guys.

But let’s talk about empowering elephants, because it’s not as if African nations are facing any sort of other problems right now.

Clinton women on stage at CGI. Hillary and Chelsea spotlight plight of African elephants. The threat, Chelsea says, is "existential."

NY – Chelsea Clinton says she worries that her new baby could grow up in a world without African elephants.

@PeterNicholas3 @SouthernKeeks With the speed Ebola is now spreading, her child may have to grow up in a world without Africans….

I know how she feels. I'm devastated that I grew up in a world without Saber Toothed Tigers. @PeterNicholas3

@georgejmichaels @PeterNicholas3 @WSJPolitics Very embarrassing. She should hope her baby grows up with freedoms.

@PeterNicholas3 This insight shows why NBC News paid her $26,724 per minute she was on the air.

That’s empowerment.

‘Lighten up, you pathetic hump’: ‘HRC’ author suggests NY Post’s Hillary editorial is ‘sexist’

As Twitchy told you, the New York Post’s editorial board recently published a scathing rebuke of Hillary Clinton, calling her out for claiming that she never told Benghazi victims’ families that the attacks were caused by a video.

The Post tweeted about it:

Jonathan Allen, former Politico writer and author of thebook “HRC,” had a big problem with that. No, not with Hillary lying, but with the word “pantsuit”:

Actually, that’s correct. It’s not sexist. Like, at all.

Unless Jonathan’ssuggesting that Hillary’s the sexist one.

Indeed. Here she is today, in fact:

Are you calling Hillary sexist, Jonathan? Is that what you’re doing?

Um, because it’s funny, Jonathan. And totally appropriate.

Oh, you mean this book cover?

That’s very problematic, Jonathan.

Not only is he reaching, but his priorities appear to be somewhat … off:

Extremely pathetic. But not terribly surprising.

Hillary cites time in situation room as proof of experience

One of standard lines from Hillary Clinton’s stump speech is that she already knows her way around the White House. As the caucuses draw closer and the polls show her in trouble, Clinton has changed her tune a bit. Speaking today in Iowa, Clinton reminded her audience just how much time she’s spent in the White House situation room as evidence that she’s the more experienced candidate.

Then, of course, there was the terrorist attack in Benghazi. President Obama famously wasn’t in the situation room that night, and flew to Las Vegas to campaign the next morning. Four days after the attack, though, he did find the time for anofficial presidential briefing on the attack. Clinton, who famously campaigned that she’d be there to answer that 3 a.m. phone call, wasn’t there, emailing that she didn’t wake up until nearly 11 a.m.

Don’t think that President Clinton will snooze through any meetings, though.

That something we’d like to see: say, a pull-up contest among Clinton, Sanders, and O’Malley.

Amen to that!

‘You LIE’: With no real argument against Trump’s travel EO, Tim Kaine resorts to making crap up

Wondering if Senator Tim Kaine is starting to feel his own irrelevance since he and that lady with the bad pantsuits lost the election six months ago …

With no real argument against Trump’s so-called “travel ban” (which any thinking person understands isn’t an actual ban but whatever), Kaine decided to get melodramatic and make stuff up:

Sen. McCaskill’s latest Hillary Clinton defense is most absurd yet. And fails …

What sparked that? This absurd defense of Hillary Clinton from Sen. Claire McCaskill:

Oh, of course! Evolving and stuff. Some suspect McCaskill is trying to “evolve” herself right into a job:

Heh.

She couldn’t possibly have, could she? Ha! Just kidding. We couldn’t even type that with a straight face.

Bingo. And here is a key reason why McCaskill’s absurd spin is an utter fail:

Ding, ding, ding! Nice try, McCaskill. But no cigar. (Hello, Bill!)

Jennifer Lawrence and Hillary Clinton: Hair twins?

Breaking: Obamacare has ‘glitches’ that need to be addressed

The Democratic candidatesseemed surprised that the moderators of Saturday night’s debate would ask how they would address the country’s dramaticallyrising health care costs and insurance premiums almost as though they were suggesting that Obamacare was some kind ofdisaster. Hillary Clinton, citing her own failed attempts to nationalize health care, was willing to concede thatObamacare had its “glitches.”

Female celebs confess to love of Hillary’s pantsuits in video

With only hours left before the Iowa caucuses, Lena Dunham is circulating a hastily shot and edited video showing a number of female celebrities reciting the line, “I’m with her,” with all the passion and persuasion of an automated answering machine routing your call to the help desk. To Dunham’s credit, we did recognize nearlyhalf of these big time celebs without peeking at the name cards.

All of these women love Hillary’s pantsuits, but what will they think of her bracelets when she’s finally indicted? A majority of Dunham’s followers are #FeelingTheBern, and display an encyclopedic knowledge of Clinton’s scandals.

Gossip monger Perez Hilton? He’s with her.

Now look what you’ve done, Dunham.

Tight Democratic race uses deck of cards to break tie

The Democratic race in Nevada has been called for Hillary Clinton, but as of this writing, it certainly wasn’t a blowout, with the vote roughly split5248with 70 percent of precincts reporting.

Anyone who saw video from the Iowa caucuses of ties being broken by coin tosses six of six of which were won by Hillary Clinton supporters will be glad to know that the tight race in Nevada didn’t rely on coin tosses to break ties. Instead, winners were determined by drawing the highest card from a deck.

It must, or Democrats wouldn’t continually accuse Republicans of voter suppressionby asking for photo IDs (which is racist, by the way).

Politico’s Roger Simon squees over Hillary’s ISIS speech (fawn-tastic enough for a Clinton spox retweet)

This morning, Hillary Clinton spelled out her plan for halting the spread of terrorism.

Politico’s chief political columnist Roger Simon was in awe:

In short:

Fawn-tastic enough to earn a retweet from Hillary for America press secretary Brian Fallon:

Team Hillary always appreciates their media sycophants.

‘So many jokes’: This Bill Clinton quote about Hillary is begging to be taken out of context

According to Bill, everything Hillary touched, she made better.

Taking the quote seriously, he must’ve forgotten about these:

Not to mention her campaign, which is taking on more water with each passing hour. The better quote would be: “Everything she touched ended in disaster.”

‘Can’t imagine’: Dana Perino and Ari Fleischer amazed by what’s in these Hillary-related emails

We already know some emails that have been released by the State Department show a very cozy relationship between members of the press and Hillary Clinton’s office when she was secretary of state.

Another email obtained by Gawker demonstrates how Philippe Reines, aide to then-Secretary Clinton, got Marc Ambinder of The Atlantic to publish favorable comments about Hillary:

Armbinder asked Reines for an advance copy of a speech Hillary Clinton was to deliver, and Reines agreed provided three demands were met. The first two concerned what Armbinder should write in his article, and the third demand was “don’t say you were blackmailed.” All demands were met.

Former Bush press secretaries Ari Fleischer and Dana Perino can’t believe it:
