Skip to comments.MAUREEN DOWD: Curtains for the Clintons
Posted on 12/03/2018 7:37:50 PM PST by Rummyfan
TORONTO The snow is falling lightly.
My thoughts are racing darkly.
Im feeling something foreign, something Ive never felt before. It takes me a moment to identify it.
Im feeling sorry for the Clintons.
In the 27 years Ive covered Bill and Hillary, Ive experienced a range of emotions. Theyve dazzled me and theyve disgusted me.
But now theyre mystifying me.
Im looking around Scotiabank Arena, the home of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and its a depressing sight. Its two-for-the-price-of-one in half the arena. The hockey rink is half curtained off, but even with that, organizers are scrambling at the last minute to cordon off more sections behind thick black curtains, they say due to a lack of sales. I paid $177 weeks in advance. (I passed on the pricey meet-and-greet option.) On the day of the event, some unsold tickets are slashed to single digits.
I get reassigned to another section as the Clintons audience space shrinks. But even with all the herding, Im still looking at large swaths of empty seats and I cringe at the thought that the Clintons will look out and see that, too. It was only four years ago, after all, that Canadians were clamoring to buy tickets to see the woman who seemed headed for history.
Its a sad contrast with the sold-out boffo book tour of Michelle Obama, whos getting a lot more personal for the premium prices. But introspection has never been within the Clintons range.

Maureen, you’ve made a fool of yourself for the last 25 years, out of your love for your twin tin gods.
And they don’t even know you exist.
But at least you got paid well for doing it, which is more than some of their other sycophants can say.
“After losing to an orange puffer clown fish who will go down as one of the most destructive forces in American history and flushing the Obama legacy down the drain, thats delusional.”
Dowd is the delusional one!

Why would she cringe?
When is it curtains for Dowd?
“It’s a Pity....”
May not be a recent picture. She has a lot of mileage....
Hmmm ... They've never dazzled me. Disgusted, yes. And outraged, and repulsed, and angered, and enraged ...
Never felt sorry for them, still don't.
Hillary should be used to seeing tiny crowds, that’s all she had at her rallies.
Clown fish? Is she homophobic?
“And Bill has given monologues to old friends about how Hillary knows how shed have to run in 2020, that she couldnt have a big staff and would just speak her mind and not focus-group everything. (That already sounds focus-grouped.)”
The very end: “That already sounds focus-grouped” had me rolling and shows that Leftists actually do have a degree of talent, if they could put off hating the country for a few minutes.
Catherine Zeta-Jones is so.........(hot!)
I am so old, but as long as I can salute her wonderfulness I know that I’m not dead yet.
“After losing to an orange puffer clown fish...”
Orange puffer clown fish! Sorry, I’m a conservative, so I can still laugh, even when my man is attacked.
The snowflake is falling lightly.
The only time I have ever eagerly read a MoDo column! As soon as I noticed that it would be a snarky sneering send-up of the current Clinton catastrophe on tour I knew it would be entertaining. It is sad that MoDo still displays so much sympathy for these grifters, but she does do a nice job of putting a couple of nails in the coffin of their public lives.
