Democrat Howard Dean’s strange, unhinged moment abruptly killed his presidential candidacy in 2004. It was a strange time in American politics that crashed a rising leftist political career dead in its tracks, ending any future presidential aspirations, and showed just how fragile campaigns can be and how quickly dynamics and support can change in elections.
And while these are different times — Donald Trump claims he could shoot someone in New York’s Fifth Avenue and he’d still not lose support among his sycophantic followers (he’s probably right) — Hillary Clinton’s dog-barking antics, literally barking like a dog, has got to be considered an embarrassment almost on par with Dean’s famous craziness.
During a campaign speech in Reno, Nevada on Monday, the cold, calculating, scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton was talking Dodd-Frank and regulation, attempting to criticize Republicans.
“One of my favorite, favorite political ads of all time was a radio ad in rural Arkansas where the announcer said, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if somebody running for office said something we could have an immediate reaction to whether it was true or not? Well, we have trained this dog and the dog, if it is not true, he is going to bark,’” Hillary remembered. “And the dog was barking on the radio, and so you know people were barking at each other for days after that.”
The robotic Hillary Clinton, never able to exhibit the kind of charm her serial rapist husband is blessed with, thought she’d take a rare stab at humor by insisting that she’d like to do the dog trick with Republicans.
“We need to get that dog and follow them around and every time they say these things, like, ‘Oh, the great recession was caused by too much regulation,’ Bark! Bark! Bark! Bark!“
Forgetting that it was government regulations, because of utopian progressive government policies, that forced banks to make loans to people who could not pay them back that undeniably was a major cause of the housing bubble, it was a pretty good dog impersonation for Hillary Clinton.
Strangely, it was an impersonation that came off a little bit too easy for her, if you know what I mean. Maybe she could win some sort of contest in prison or something.
