A few reminders why another Clinton presidency would be a really bad idea

"[Hillary Rodham Clinton] flunked the DC bar exam and only passed the Arkansas bar. She had no job offers in Arkansas and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there. She only joined the prestigious Rose Law Firm after Bill became Attorney General and made partner only after he was elected Governor." -- Long time Clinton adviser Dick Morris

"[Hillary Rodham Clinton] keep saying that Social Security has lost 14 years of solvency on President Bush's watch. In 2000, your husband's last year in office, the program's trustees said it would be solvent until 2037. Now they say it will be solvent until 2041. As the most serious female candidate for president we've ever had, aren't you setting a bad example by not being able to do math?" -- Jonah Goldberg

Hillary's Smoking Gun

"Slick Willy didn't sell his soul to the devil, he married into the family."

"In other news, Hillary Clinton is apparently listening to Sandy Berger on foreign policy. Like I need another reason to consider her a scary bitch whom I wouldn't vote for if the other candidate was Satan." -- Just a Decurion

The Many Faces of HRC

"Remember this whenever you read or hear a "Media Matters" clarification, re-interpretation of an event, or news report. Media Matters is all about clearing a path for Hillary Rodham Clinton, and doing the job she hasn't the guts to do herself." -- Bob Parks

It's part of the Hillary defense. Just as Hillary's answers are scripted, so is her "spontaneous" laughter. This is truly learned behavior -- laughing -- or pretending to laugh at will. Over the past 15 years, she's perfected the art of responding to people, questions and networks that she doesn't like. In the past, she would sneer and answer sarcastically, as in, "Maybe I should have stayed home and baked cookies." But those days are over. Now she smiles constantly and dissolves into a flood of loud giggles. It's been a big part of her media training.

The mainstream media hasn't had much to say about the laughing candidate. But can you imagine if Rudy Giuliani responded to a network interviewer by laughing loudly and hysterically for five seconds? No doubt The New York Times would seriously wonder about his state of mind. But they don't find it odd with Hillary. -- Former Clinton adviser Dick Morris


"Hillary is not for everyone. It is not for those with common sense, entrepreneurs, legal immigrants, families, or those who fear a healthcare system that works as well as the DMV. If you vote for Hillary, tell your doctor if if you feel muscle pain, weakness, or a sudden onset of guilt. This could be a sign that you realize what you've done: i.e., doomed the American people to four years of Jimmy Carter with a deeper voice. The most common side effects are bleeding from the ears, four-month waits for MRI's, and a lighter wallet. These side effects tend to go away after you stop caring or if you die while awaiting medical treatment." -- Doug Ross
