‘Shocking and Weird’: Rachel Maddow Rips Start of Bill Clinton’s DNC Speech

‘Shocking and Weird’: Rachel Maddow Rips Start of Bill Clinton’s DNC Speech

Hearing Bill Talk at Length about Meeting, Wooing and Marrying Hillary Was Kind of Creepy

Uh-oh: looks like I’ve had something of a mind-meld with Rachel Maddow . . . During Bill Clinton’s DNC speech tonight, I tweeted “the spectacle of Bill Clinton telling the romantic story of how he met, wooed and married Hillary is deeply creepy.”

When the speech ended, Rachel Maddow, on MSNBC, called the top of the speech “shocking and weird,” describing the beginning of the speech as “controversial.” Maddow was miffed that Clinton spoke of “a girl,” “the girl” and built “her whole political story for the whole first half of the speech around her marriage to him.”

Note how Maddow seemed about to conclude her comments by saying “the end of the speech was really good,” but felt compelled, perhaps out of honesty or feminist solidarity, to add her observation about the beginning of the speech being “shocking and weird.”

RACHEL MADDOW: I think the beginning of the speech was a controversial way to start, honestly, talking “the girl,” “a girl,” leading with this long story about him being attracted to an unnamed girl and thinking about whether he was starting something he couldn’t finish, building her whole political story for the whole first half of the speech around her marriage to him. I think, lest there were worries this is going to be too feminist a convention, that was not a feminist way to start. But the end of the speech was really good. I’ve got to say, the top of the speech I found shocking and weird.

Hillary’s entire political story does revolve around her marriage to Bill. Without him, she’d just be another shrill, creepy old leftwing harpie.

But I do imagine Madcow has a difficult time relating to the average boy meets girl, boy marries girl story.

    Remember, Bill Clinton lost his reelection bid in 1981 after his first two-year term as Arkansas Governor. If he hadn’t come back & won it two years later, we might never have heard of him OR Hillary.

    Yeah. Such a nice thought . . .

    Depending on your point of view, heterosexuality could be considered deviant sexuality, because what is normal for them is not normal for you.

Bill could have been channeling this tonight.

Aww… wasn’t that romantic? At least he had the good sense to leave out the parts about his serial cheating, philandering, abusing, beating and raping with hundreds of women while he was ‘wooing’ Hillary. What a sick creep.

Talk about “deeply creepy”

He philanders. She panders. Ah, yes, a match made in the dark recesses of depraved humanity.

Pervert, meet enabler, enabler meet pervert…largest “crack” in the glass ceiling…Really…really?

Brian Williams looks like he is having flashbacks to that time his chopper was hit with an RPG. No wait it was the one behind his. No wait, it was the one an hour behind his. Why on earth would a company that cares about their reputation employ that bag of waste?
