On Tuesday night I swung by the Hannity show on Fox News to chew over the latest revelations re Hillary Clinton, her simulacrum of a "presidential campaign", her phony "charitable foundation", her latest illegal private email account, etc, etc. Jeff Foxworthy, host of "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?", was also on the guest list, and I suggested to Sean that Hillary's campaign was a brand new game show: "Are You Dumber Than A Box of Rocks?" - because that's what she's evidently figures the American electorate for.
You can see the full interview here.
Over at Breitbart, Jeff Poor reported:
Steyn decried Clinton's pass from the media and suggested the candidacy of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) would be a refreshing change of pace.
"[Y]ou know, this is a joke and it is unbecoming," Steyn said. "I'm happy to see — I would love Elizabeth Warren to run, not because she's a socialist lunatic to my tastes, but she comes by her socialism honestly."
Well, reasonably honestly. As I put it a few weeks back:
Yes, Senator Fauxcahontas Crockagewea Warren's got her own scandal - in that she got hired as Harvard Law School's "first woman of color" on the basis of a dubious claim to be one thirty-second Cherokee and having contributed Cole Porter and the Duchess of Windsor's favorite crab dish from an upscale Manhattan restaurant to a cookbook of authentic tribal recipes.
Yet, with the benefit of hindsight, isn't that kind of a charmingly amateur, sweetly naive racket? It's a small-town home-cooked mom'n'pop racket compared to the 24/7 industrial-scale multinational Saud-kissing pedophile-jetting rackets of Clinton Global Mega-Racket Inc,
As I've said before, the overriding issue for me this electoral season is the corruption. Hillary has a contempt for the rules, a contempt for the law, a contempt for public accountability, transparency and open government, a contempt for the basic seemliness of official conduct in civilized societies - and a boundless appetite for cronyism, special favors, backroom deals, and protection of her associates when it comes to money, sex and everything else. The government she runs will be a sewer.
UPDATE: More from last night's appearance courtesy of The Daily Caller:
The Clinton Foundation has no other purpose... If you give $1 million to the Clinton Foundation because you're worried like Chelsea Clinton says about diarrhea in Africa, $60,000 of it goes to diarrhea in Africa, and $940,000 of it gets sluiced off toward keeping the big Clinton machine running.
~If you're wondering about the book Sean plugged at the top of the interview, it's Climate Change: The Facts, which features me along with Richard Lindzen, Willie Soon and other scientists the climate mullahs don't want you to hear from. It's been such a hit that Amazon are having difficulty keeping it in stock. But you can always order it direct from the SteynOnline bookstore, and I'll be happy to autograph it for you. If you can't wait for that, it can be yours in seconds via Kindle.
~Tomorrow, Thursday, I'll be keeping my weekly date with Hugh Hewitt live coast to coast at 6pm Eastern/3pm Pacific.
~Today is Everybody Draw Mohammed Day. We'll have a few thoughts on the occasion a little later.
