Queen of Sleaze

Hillary and Bill are the queen and king of sleaze.  Rape, self-exposure, imposed fondling, multiple counts of adultery, and oral sex are all in the Bill Clinton arsenal of prurient and illegal sexual behaviors.  He is a proven perjurer, having lied in a deposition to a federal judge.  Bill has been disbarred and signed a confession of guilt, which, as part of that confession, he is not legally allowed to recant.

And what has Hillary’s role been throughout?  She said at one point that she is “not a Tammy Wynette type” who is “standing by her man,” meaning thereby the long-suffering and afflicted wife.  No.  Her role has been an aggressive defense of Bill’s philandering, his adultery.  She has referred to the many accusations as a “vast right-wing conspiracy” and as “bimbo eruptions.”  She threatened one of Bill’s rape accusers, Juanita Broaddrick.

Hillary certainly is not the long-suffering wife, but the self-immolating enabler who ruthlessly justifies her husband’s abuse of women while he follows the path of power, money, and fame.  To be a victimized and pained victim of a husband like Bill is excusable.  To be an active enabler and apologist for his corrupt meanderings is not.  If she had said that Bill’s behavior is wrong and hurtful in the extreme, but that she does not believe in divorce, or that she wants to show him mercy and forgiveness through her long-suffering behavior based on her faith in God, that might resolve the issue satisfactorily.  But to quote Michelle Obama and respond merely “when they go low, you go high” is so amazingly shallow and inappropriate that no one with an ounce of realism can be satisfied.

The jealous squabbles and fights on the Jerry Springer show are the results of breaches of trust and sexual obsessions far less egregious than those introduced into Hillary’s life by her charming ex-president husband.
