That giant sucking sound off in the distance is the national media swooping into full celebrity coverage mode as Queen Hillary the Inevitable is about to strap it on for battle. The Guardian is reporting that Mrs. Clinton will officially kick off her long-awaited run for the White House on Sunday while enroute to Iowa. Not that this is really news, the entitled Hillary has been waiting since she suffered the indignity of having to concede the Dem presidential nod to Barack Obama in 2008 and has been chafing at the bit for her bite at the apple ever since.
The weekend announcement makes it a certainty that barring some world shattering event – like Kim Kardashian getting busted or something – that Hillary will dominate the news cycle heading into next week. The Guardian story is heralded as an “exclusive” and reports that” Hillary Clinton to launch presidential campaign on Sunday en route to Iowa – source” from which I excerpt:
Hillary Clinton is planning to officially launch her US presidential campaign on Sunday while en route to Iowa, a source familiar with the campaign has confirmed to the Guardian.
The former secretary of state is scheduled to declare her second run for president on Twitter at noon eastern time on Sunday, the source told the Guardian, followed by a video and email announcement, then a series of conference calls mapping out a blitzkrieg tour beginning in Iowa and looking ahead to more early primary states.
Clinton’s Sunday schedule is booked beginning with takeoff from New York to Iowa, where speculation has centered for weeks that Clinton was focusing attention for an April campaign launch. Her scheduled calls are with advisers in other key battleground states.
Clinton’s spokesman, Nick Merrill, did not respond to multiple requests for comment on the contours of Clinton’s campaign kickoff schedule. Another source close to the Clinton campaign confirmed Clinton would be in Iowa in the coming days.
Clinton will be the first Democratic presidential candidate to declare for the 2016 presidential election, and is widely considered the frontrunner within the party.
You have to love the reference to a “blitzkrieg” for the obvious reasons given the Nazi connotation of the term. Hillary’s announcement comes with her ratings plunging according to a number of polls and right after it was announced that her campaign was leasing office space in tony Brooklyn Heights. She should also get a boost from the decision of a Florida judge to reject the inclusion of “sex slave” Virginia Roberts in a lawsuit against the vile wealthy pederast Jeffrey Epstein which should put a damper on the rumors that Slick Willie was involved in orgies at Epstein’s secret island. The last thing that Hillary needed was another big sex scandal involving the former U.S. president who is pathologically unable to keep his snake in it’s cage.
Next week the Clinton political machine will finally be rolled out to begin the attack on American decency that it is hoped will culminate with the dynastic restoration of one of this country’s ruling families to power.
