So what do you make of Hillary's crying spell? 
Not much.

Running for president is an incredibly draining thing, no matter who you are. (Being president is even more draining!) I don't want any president who bursts out crying every other day. But Hillary is human, all appearances to the contrary. Emotions can get the better of people at strange and unpredictable times.

I got emotional in a truck in Waimanalo a couple of months ago, just describing the Al Anbar awakening to my dad, and how it went down in Ramadi.

Hillary's ego - her sense of entitlement - was just so monstrous - that when she fell flat on her face in Iowa it must have been an emotionally shattering, disorienting moment. Sort of like when Marie Antoinette first got a clue what was in store for her.

Sure, she had it coming. Hillary, not Marie Antoinette. And it may be the best thing in the world for her. I hope she can emerge a more humble and human candidate. But the experience has got to be deeply wounding.

The first cut is the deepest.

Everybody gets one crying spell. And her's wasn't exactly a "leave Britney alone" moment.

Slack shall be cut for her here on CounterColumn.

Splash, Out


UPDATE: Anchoress, you magnificent bastard! I read your book!!!!


There was a line in a movie once, I can't remember the movie...but the line was something like "She demands to be treated like 'one of the boys' but when she is, she starts crying."

This reminds me of that.
