Hillary’s Unhumanized Acceptance Speech

Hillary’s Unhumanized Acceptance Speech

My Quick Reaction

After a rocky first day, the Democratic Convention showed signs of the benefits of Hollywood backing.

Hillary’s acceptance night was slickly produced, and obviously geared towards “humanizing” Hillary.

If humanizing Hillary was the goal, her acceptance speech was just the opposite. We saw fighting, angry Hillary tonight.

That has to have been a strategic decision, with Katy Perry’s Fight Song played repeatedly as Hillary took the stage. Nothing is left to chance or done off the cuff by the Clinton campaign. Surely, a focus group somewhere predicted that was the way to go.

Perhaps Hillary was feeling the heat from a politically successful, but unpolished, Republican convention. Trump seems to have gotten under her skin. An unexpectedly large portion of her speech was devoted to Trump, but when she attacked Trump it wasn’t as the happy warrior.

Or perhaps Hillary felt a full-throated embrace of progressive politics was needed to mend fences with Bernie supporters.

Whatever the reason, Hillary remained unhumanized by design.

I’m just wondering if the convention will give Jill Stein enough of a bump to to put her in the debates.

Thanks for taking one for the team professor. There’s no way in hell I’d ever watch a democrat speak about anything.

I did tune in to see the pantsuit she’d choose to wear. Given it was pink, could this be called her Vagina Monologues speech?

    Hillary’s 3 piece suit was white and so appropriate!

    An all white suit is the traditional attire of Democrat demagogues, movie/television villains and the showiest of showmen and hucksters such as Huey P. Long, George Wallace, Boss Hogg, Kingpin, Elvis, Liberace, Michael Jackson… and many more.

    Boss Hogg’s cigar and Kingpin’s cane are good tie-ins to Hillary.

I’m glad you’re reviewing it professor. I could not watch it without throwing up.

What’s that thing on Hillary’s tongue?

It looks like a mole was biopsied there or a Herpy was removed/burned off. Did Hillary have a cancer scare?

I wholeheartedly agree with ER. There was no way I could listen to the confirmed liar.

Do people think that a fancily produced Hollywood stage
show changes a liar that we know well. A person that lied for a year about a home brew server in her basement.

This women will bring nothing but sorrow and grief to our
nation if elected.

At this point a candidate not coming across as likable is the least of my concerns.

Did the stage have foam columns?

“Whatever the reason, Hillary remained unhumanized by design.”

Every couple of years since Billy Jeff left office back in the late ’90s it’s been time to reinvent and humanize Hillary.

After all these years the verdict is in; apparently she’s not human. And who is the real Hillary? The unhuman thing poll testing her responses to questions so she can appear as close to human as possible. If only she could fake that, she’d rule over you primitive carbon based life forms, earthlings.

LOL. Hillary is so clueless. We can’t trust Donald Trump to behave responsibly, but we can trust her — the woman who thought it was a great idea to bomb Libya’s leadership out of existence, without the slightest thought to what would happen next, and who was “extremely careless” (according to the FBI Director) with her handling of our national security secrets, for years?

So our choice is between a man who may prove to be a dangerous fool, and a woman who has already proven (repeatedly, over many years) that she is a dangerous fool.

Hmmmm. Decisions, decisions . . . .

    “So our choice is between a man who may prove to be a dangerous fool, and a woman who has already proven (repeatedly, over many years) that she is a dangerous fool.”

    In a nutshell. Exactly right.

Every divorced man’s first wife.

Even Sauron gets the willies when she visits.

The biggest mistake Hillary made last night is she didn’t pass out juice boxes to the poor little “disenfranchised” Bernie snowflakes. It sounds like there will be plenty of videos of their refusal the sit down and shut up.

Slickly produced by Hollywood, but paid for by Wall Street.

“Hillary Calls for Unity” scrolled across the screen of FoxNews this morning. While, admittedly, not lingering to hear what was said, we can well imagine how such “unity” would be brought about: compulsion, Federal compulsion.

I want no part of an Americanized version of a German Merkel.

A quote comes to mind. I don’t know who said it, but it goes something like, “She sounds like my ex-wife, and I’ve never been married.”

I admit to having a twisted mind, but down here the word “and” is often shortened to N. Several examples come to mind like huntin n fishin, rockin n rollin, lock n load. So when I hear DNC, my brain reads D&C and I think, “they really need one.”

The re-re-re-re-re-re-re-INDOCTRINATION of Hillary as human.

Obama was the New Coke president, lots of marketing effect for a product no one wanted. This is New Coke redux. Never fear everyone, it won’t work. I’m disappointed in so many of the conservative experts falling for it. For some, it will be a second time.

Hillary would be bringing back Pommac. Yuck!

Wonder what the MSM will say when she has as seizure in the middle of the debates . Id say the chances of her debating is the same as Mosby showing us Freddie’s knife

Please don’t use the terms “Clinton” and “full-throated embrace” together again. It brings flashbacks from the 90s back into my head.

Professor, thank you for doing the dirty job most Americans won’t do – listen to Hitliary for more than 7 seconds – or however long it takes to grab the remote in a panic and change to any other channel.

Professor, you really took one for the team. I suggest you see your rabbi for counseling…just in case.

Hillary was going on about the historic moment. You would think she would have a historic speech. Instead she appeared angry and not up to the moment. Imagine Lincoln at Gettysburg going on for an hour about the CSA.
