Is it possible that Mrs. Bill Clinton just isn't too bright?

Her reckless greed is no secret, her poor judgment is widely acknowledged, but what about ordinary brains?
If you recall, she could not pass the DC bar exam. Today's example: She could not operate her fax, so required her maid to copy out secret memos for her to read. Just unbelievable. Smartest woman in the world? Doesn't say much for women. Is it possible? - Maggie's Farm

Your Say

I can't take credit for this jab, because I think I heard a version of it on the radio. But if Hillary wins and gets sworn in on the bible, she'll have to plead the fifth prior to taking the oath.

But, but she graduated from Wellesley and Yale Law School.

Is it possible that she's good at memorizing facts for tests, but not so good at applying the facts when she needs to? That's academic smarts with no a ability to use common sense. She's not alone. There are people like that all over our government. They have credentials but no common sense.

Saw Tim Kaine on *Face the Nation* this morning, first time I ever saw video of him.

Jeezis, is he top of the mast? Really?

Extremely dense, and easily led.
Leader? LOL pleez

Transparently criminal.
Plainly untrustworthy.
If I was to guess I'd say he was a NYC union member.

Physically bulky, mentally deficient, morally vacant, criminally intent.

Don't know who the host was but he smirked openly the whole time.

**This was the first time I had seen this show since the 1990's and probably won't watch it again, ever.


Caught a couple minutes of Obama on the Jimmy Kimmel show the other night. First time I had ever seen that show and the first time I had seen video of Obama. (Yeah, I know, I need to get out more.)

Right. Jimmy Kimmel. Remember that guy? "The MAN Show". Remember? Scantily clad gurlz on trampolines. Tittie jokes all over the place. Suggestive skits and games. Women pr0n stars? About 10-15 years ago.

About the same time Trump was having a private guy conversation with another guy and the media feigned disgust. Remember?

And there Obama was right in the middle of it just 3 nights ago.

As I said, that was the first time I had ever seen video of Obama. (I don't wanna hear it. Remember, I previously have said to look ahead for problems and avoid them.)

What an embarrassment. This guy can't say 5 words in a row without injecting an "Um" or backing up and restating, or curving off on a fork, or any number of indicators that his brain is of the adolescent variety. He can't see to the end of a complete sentence. This means his brain is capable of only small bite size pieces. He is incapable of seeing a larger picture. He cannot imagine, or plan for, the future.

Know who else is like this?
They live for the now and have no concept of time, except whats hard wired into them. Sit a large bowl of food down in front of an animal and it will eat til it hurls, then it will eat the hurl, and hurl again, until it's body refuses further abuse.

That's the way Obama is. He will keep acting as if there is no future until something physical intercedes and everybody else be damned.

This attitude is created by a combination of, first, nature, combined with nurture.

It is framed by the notion that nobody else matters, at all. It's all me, Me, ME, all the time. Extreme narcissism, over arrogance, and basal apathy.

Now I'm going to throw the TV over the railing.

Hillary: Much ambition, little talent.

Government is chock FULL of women like this. I get in a room with State agency leaders and I, the lowly admin support, I realize that I'm smarter than they. I don't know all their acronyms and jargon yet, but I know why they are all in deep dog shit with the Feds. They can talk all kinds of talk about policy and outcome measures and program improvement. The LOVE to talk. Even the men. But they are pig ignorant to ACT on anything. I'd say it's a grist mill of policy and we're all choking on the dust.

There's a management matrix about this somewhere. Dumb people who think they are smart are the most dangerous people on planet earth. But it's nothing new. Look at all those Kennedy guys who got us into Vietnam. Two guys I knew came back in body bags.

Cass, the Germans (von Clausewitz and successors) said it best perhaps. A 21st century iteration:

“There are only four types of officers.

First, there are the lazy, stupid ones. Leave them alone, they do no harm.

Second, there are the hard-working intelligent ones. They make excellent staff officers, ensuring that every detail is properly considered.

Third, there are the hard-working, stupid ones. These people are a menace, and must be fired at once. They create irrelevant work for everybody.

Finally, there are the intelligent lazy ones. They are suited for the highest office.”

All of these types were the ones running for Student Council in high school. Think about it.

The exemplar of this bunch is Dennis Kucinich, whose greatest ambition at age 24 was to be the mayor of Cleveland. Remember what you were up to in 1970? He was the mayor. Of Cleveland.

Mr. DeWitt

Bingo ! and a solid LOL ... beat me to it. Most politicians are from the 'student council asshole' cohort

They thought they would make a difference. They parroted faculty rhetoric. They were not the creative, truly insightful ones. They were the asskissers, the apple-polishers, the wannabees, the drecks, the offal. They were self-referential twits. They remain so in their current incarnations 50 years into the Great Society

And they are ALWAYS inevitably drawn to the Non-Productive Parasitic Realms, where they enjoy bitter satisfaction of trying to control the Producers, deluding themselves that. they. matter.

The Cunt is their perfect paradigm. And they will vote for her regardless of her uninterrupted history of incompetence, failure and criminality
