Why Hillary Bugs Me
Mickey Kaus has obtained a copy of a page from an upcoming book about Hillary Clinton, and it includes this bombshell, that Hillary Clinton "listened to a secretly recorded audiotape of a phone conversation of Clinton critics plotting their next attack. The tape contained discussions of another woman who might surface with allegations about an affair with Bill. Bill's supporters monitored frequencies used by cell phones, and the tape was made during one of those monitoring sessions."
Oh, sweet irony!*
Haven't we been lectured time and time again about the threat to democracy and to the Republic itself by the NSA wiretapping program? Although there is not one iota of evidence that this program has ever been used to violate anyone's civil rights, we have been told that the program must be dismantled because it might be used against the President's political enemies. Well, if this story holds up, we have Hillary Clinton illegally using wiretaps against political enemies - the very type of conduct that the left tells us tramples on the Constitution and destroys our democracy.
When are the leftists going to begin asking Hillary why she hates democracy? Is it too much to ask for a little consistency here? Or will there be a defeaning silence on this issue that shows that the 'outrage' over the NSA program was, indeed, selective and manufactured?
What is it with the left and wiretaps, anyway? It was not that long ago that a federal court found Baghdad Jim McDermott liable for engaging in precisely this kind of conduct against Newt Gingrich and John Boehner. The most famous wiretapping case of all was Robert Kennedy's spying on Martin Luther King. If Hillary Clinton, she of travelgate/filegate fame, wins the White House, I leave it to you to decide whether her modus operandi is suddenly going to honestly abjure this emerging Democratic[sic] tradition.

But Republicans are scary people, so whatever they do has Darth Vader theme music played underneath it, while Democrats are nice people who care, so their theme music is more Luke Skywalker.
Sad as it is, I suspect something like that really is how progressives sort out the world. The rest is post hoc rationalization.

One of the BIGGEST reasons I don't like Hillary other than her Socialist ways is her annoying voice...I can't imagine her Presidential addressses! AaaaaaAAAAaaaaa!
