Victim of the VRC??
Blaming her husbands problems with Monica, Perjury and Stained Dresses on a 'Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy' that was dogging poor Bill Clinton for his entire presidency was a stretch, to say the least.
She later claimed that the 2002 election was also influenced by the VRC. Accusing the right wing of jamming phones, closing roads and suppressing the black vote, she credited the VRC with the Congressional mid-term pickups. Investigations proved that all the fraud and election tampering was in favor of the Democrats.
I hope Mrs. Clinton blames the VRC one more time. Is it too early to write her off in NH, SC and all the way to Super Tuesday? Probably. But if she blames the VRC this time, she'd still be wrong...but at least there is some evidence to back it up.
Sean Hannity calls his radio show the 'Stop Hillary' express. Mark Levin and Monica Crowley have devoted 80% of their respective radio show to comparing (accurately, I might add) Hillary's policies with that of Chairman Mao and Joseph Stalin. (note: she shares clothiers with Mao).
Of course, if the VRC exists, it has had little to do with Hillary's 'New York Mets' style collapse. It is the left wings own doing. The left has created a monster and the monster has turned on it. The electoral process has increasingly favored the extreme ends of both parties, but over the last six years, the democratic base has reinvented itself. Don't think Hubert Humphrey, John F. Kennedy or Joseph Lieberman, think Cindy Sheehan, George Soros and MoveOn.org.
The Democrats have fanned the flames of the wildest theories to hit mainstream politics in a hundred years. They have filled the minds of their new base with ideas about stolen elections, an innocent Iraq minding its own business, U.S. troops committing rape and genocide, the president tapping our phone lines and on and on and on.
Why is Mrs. Clinton surprised to find that this base found her too mainstream to get her vote? Why is she surprised to see them turn to the eloquent newcomer, who more accurately projects their view for change?
As I have always said, the VRC doesn't exist. If it did exist, I'd be the leader...
But if the VRC does exist, they have very little say on how the lunatic fringe in Iowa and New Hampshire vote. I seriously doubt that Sean Hannity sent a single Clinton supporter to Barack Obama.
In the meantime, I am hoping that Mr. Obama helps us rid ourselves of the Clintons forever. I hope Mrs. Clinton hangs in for a long time...and eventually withdraws and blames her favorite scapegoat.
