Skip to comments.The Clintons, a horror film that never ends

Its alive! We thought it might be over but some of us never dared fully believe it. Last week was like one of those moments in a horror movie when the worst terror recedes, the screen goes blank and then reopens on green fields or a lovers tender embrace. Drained but still naive audiences breathe a collective sigh of relief. The plot twists have all been resolved; the threat is gone; the quiet spreads. And then . . .
Put your own movie analogy in here. Glenn Close in the bathtub in Fatal Attraction whoosh! shes back at your throat! has often occurred to me when covering the Clintons these many years. The Oscars host Jon Stewart compares them to a Terminator: the kind that is splattered into a million tiny droplets of vaporised metal . . . only to pool together spontaneously and charge back at you unfazed.
The Clintons have always had a touch of the zombies about them: unkillable, they move relentlessly forward, propelled by a bloodlust for Republicans or uppity Democrats who dare to question their supremacy. You cant escape; you cant hide; and you cant win. And these days, in the kinetic pace of the YouTube campaign, they are like the new 28 Days Later zombies. They come at you really quickly, like bats out of hell. Or Ohio, anyway.
Now all this may seem a little melodramatic. Perhaps it is. Objectively, an accomplished senator won a couple of races one by a mere 3% against another senator in a presidential campaign. One senator is still mathematically unbeatable. But that will never capture the emotional toll that the Clintons continue to take on some of us.

He used to be first in line to get Clinton's golden kneepads award
What Andrew Sullivan do you think he is?
I think there is only one Sullivan and 2 Andys
I don’t see how Hillary thinks she has a chance. She can’t get enough superdelegates. Surely she doesn’t have FBI files on all of them.
LOL. Good one..
Yes, you’re beginning to understand, grasshopper.
Hillary, in her younger days...
No, it was not. Tax hikes happened, spending increased, and defense was in shambles which led to 9/11.
A despicable presidency.
That is for openers. Let's remember also how they perverted the law to punish their political enemies, pi**ed on the most sacred traditions of the presidency (some going all of the way back to Geo. Washington),slandered substantially all of the founding fathers in defense of Billy's indefensible behavior, and stole, STOLE property of the American people from the White House.
I could go on, but I would become physically sick.
. . . right next to:
and two more like it :’)
