Demonstrating that he still hasn’t lost his touch, I commend Mickey Kaus’s post, “A Marxist Analyst of Hillary” to your attention. Here’s the opening:
Now that we are all Marxists, we need to uncover the materialist basis of even seemingly non-economic phenomena. Take Hillary Clinton’s campaign/non-campaign for President. Is she running or not? Why won’t she say?
I think that this is something that should be repeated every time the name “Clinton” is mentioned. Here we have a woman who was the only Ivy grad among her contemporaries couldn’t pass the DC bar the first time around but who, fortuitously, was hired by Little Rock’s largest law firm as soon as Hubbie was elected governor of Arkansas. By a stroke of good fortune her first investment outing netted her a very tidy sum. Have I mentioned that her husband was governor of Arkansas? She appears to have received investment advice from Tyson Foods (headquartered in Springdale, Arkansas).
She was catapulted to national attention by her husband’s presidential run, made successful at least in part by a demonstration of public forgiveness of her husband’s many infidelities. For this she is a Champion of Feminism.
She is a woman of contradictions, to say the least.
Read the whole thing. If Mr. Kaus’s analysis is correct, there will be a lot of disappointed Democrats within just a few months time. And a mad scramble in 2016.
