Q: Did Hillary Clinton See the Mocking She Took on Saturday Night Live?

A: No. She erased the tape!

This is a must see....



And the reviews from Hillary's big launch were not entirely positive. Here's liberal columnist Ruth Marcus, writing in the Washington Post:
Hillary Clinton’s insultingly vapid video 
The more I watch Hillary Clinton’s announcement video, the less I like it. This may be putting it mildly.
...
[T]he video was relentlessly, insultingly vapid — a Verizon commercial without the substance. “Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top,” Clinton said in what passed for a meaty message. “Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion.”

Seriously, this makes Ronald Reagan’s gauzy “It’s Morning Again in America” commercial look like a Brookings Institution seminar on economic policy. Understood — an announcement video isn’t the moment for a detailed policy platform, but it is, or should be, a venue for at least nodding to specific goals.
...
Sunday’s announcement — well, I just quoted the entirety of its substance. The Clinton campaign is focused on reassuring voters, as a campaign official put it in a conference call Monday previewing Clinton’s Iowa trip, “it isn’t about her … this is about … everyday Iowans.” But everyday Iowans deserve to hear more from the woman who would be president about what, exactly, she intends to do in office. It disrespects them to spend precious video seconds on the cute boy playing a fish in his school play.

Adding insult to vacuousness was the demographic box-checking nature of the video, however beautifully filmed. Working mom, check. Hispanic entrepreneur, check. Retiring grandma, check. Gay couple, check. African-American family, check. Hardworking small-businessman, check. South Asian, inter-racial, lesbian, check, check, check. If your demographic was not featured, you should write the campaign and it will probably splice you in.
...
Might I suggest, candidate Clinton? The best way to demonstrate your humility to voters is to take them and their presidential choice seriously, not to pander and condescend.
Yes Ruth, you might suggest that but even though Hillary is on a "listening tour" I doubt she'll heed your advice! After all, once you get past the fluff, there's not really much there now is there!
