Ok stick with me here a minute.
There are a number of things that taken on their own, ‘just don’ make no sense’ about Hillary’s campaign strategy. Lets look at a few from just the past few days:
(It is extremely unusual that someone running for president would avoid the press one might think. Triply so for a Democrat)
2. She seems to cough her way through speeches. Which I suppose saves a lot of writer expenses and TelePrompTer costs, but is an odd choice for content on a campaign speech even with the lower word price on campaign speeches.
3. Hillary gets $500,000.00 from a Pakistani man who got a promise to criminalize criticism of islam from her for the money. This is from someone who actually did read the 1st amendment and understands it, unlike the constitutional expert who lives in the White House at this time.
4. Hillary Clinton angers supporters by making them wait hours for a 5 minute speech. (I wonder if she coughed her way through it?)
It is also well known that Hillary, with Obama’s help quite often, has been raising money quite consistently and quite well and with serious dedication. I am guessing she doesn’t cough her way through those meetings nor is she incoherent. I remember quite a few headlines about things Obama did not attend because he was at a fund raiser, some of them at least must have been for her campaign.
Now lets connect the dots.
For those who have seen Mel Brooks’ hit play/movie, ‘The Producers’, if you run through the plot line in your head you may see the connection here yourself. For those who have not I suggest you watch the movie, I recommend the original version with Zero Mostell and Gene Wilder, as soon as possible thinking about Hillary’s fund raising tours and her displays of near ludicrous incompetence and anti-campaigning.
If you have not seen the movie or the play, CAUTION: Partial spoiler ahead. Stop reading now unless you really don’t care but you should, its one of the funniest movies ever made.
I won’t give away the ending, but the basic premise is that a Broadway play producer is told how he can make more money by a play that flops than one that succeeds, as if he sells 10,000% of the play to hundreds of people, they are unlikely to come looking for their investment back if the play fails. So he sets out with his new partner, ironically an IRS agent, to find the worst play, the worst actors, the worst choreography he can find and goes out fund raising.
The thing of it is, I simply cannot read a story about Hillary Clinton these days without thinking about this movie. Now on the one hand, if this is indeed what she is doing. If she is ‘Brooksing’, or perhaps, ‘Springtime for Hillary’ this election, its the least worst scenario. The worst scenario is that this is indeed what she is doing, but she gets the same outcome as happens in the movie.
