A severe case of Clinton Derangement Syndrome has flared up once again at the frothing local tabloid. This latest pooh-pooh platter features a refried interview, a retread ranter, a syndicated drone, and a quick-draw artist. Nice bridge group, eh?
Start with the refried interview:
Yes, that’s the same Andrew Card the Herald announced it’s partnering up with for New Hampshire 2016 presidential coverage. Cozy, yeah?
Moving on, the Herald pulls former contributor Michael Graham out of mothballs to add his two cents.
This is why Hillary gives me a headache
I’ve made a lot of money off the Clintons. My first week as a radio talk host was the same week the world learned the name Monica Lewinsky. All I had to do was say “Bill Clinton” into the mic and my phone lines exploded. My career was launched.
At the end of his presidency, I published a book titled, “Clinton and Me: How Eight Years of a Pants-Free President Changed My Nation, My Family And My Life.” It sold a lot of copies.
So I’m not a Clinton hater per se. But I do know what “is” means. I know how sex works. And I know how to send an email. And these facts make it very difficult to believe anything coming out of the Clintons’ mouths.
Next up: Jonah Goldberg, a man who sets the bar for syndication limbo-low.
Email flap pushes Clinton off pedestal
This was supposed to be the month Clinton led with her chief selling point: her gender. She had put together a whole “I Am Woman, Hear Me Bore” speaking tour in which women’s issues — particularly the women’s issues that poll well among women who care a lot about women’s issues — would be the main subject.
The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation unveiled a big foofaraw over Hillary’s “No Ceilings” campaign. What a wonderfully convenient theme for Mrs. Clinton’s massive and mysterious foundation, given that smashing the “highest glass ceiling” — i.e., the presidency — is the central rationale of her planned presidential bid.
And etc. etc.

Okay – we’re done with this Hillter Skillter stuff.
