Hillary's Vast Right Wing Conspiracy

The End is Near.

Former foes Clinton, Gingrich band up on health care plan

Even Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton detected a hint of "cognitive dissonance" Wednesday as she stood next to onetime political enemy Newt Gingrich to help unveil a bill to "transform" the health care system.

I begin work on my bomb shelter this weekend.

This was a more modest proposal. The 21st Century Health Information Act would replace paperwork with confidential, electronic health information networks designed to save lives and money by eliminating medical errors.

Yet if the World ends, what will it matter?

she acknowledged the strangeness of teaming with the leader of the 1994 "Republican revolution." After all, this was the man who at one time embodied what she called the "vast right-wing conspiracy."

Speaking of conspiracy, what the heck is going on here? First Bill is hanging out with George Sr. and now this.

"People thought, 'The end is near.' It's a sign of the end times," she said with a grin.

See, I told you.

But if it seemed Wednesday that it was Clinton who had forgotten history when she declared, "We have a lot in common," Gingrich apparently has not.

Asked where else they agreed, he said: "Let's keep it to" health care. "Otherwise that becomes the story."

It already is Newt! I think I may have a handle on this. As we all know, Hillary is trying to move to the middle for 2008. That makes sense. Her comments on immigration are in line with this strategy. Her thinking is that if she can just keep the ‘middle’ from hating her guts, she can pull enough of them to get over the hump. And, as much as I hate to say it, she has been making more sense than the other standard bearers of the Democratic Party like Reid and Dean. Of course, as delusional as they are, they speak their minds. We all know the Clinton modus operandi is to say what gets you elected and do what you want. Remember the 1992 middle class tax cut proposal that was finally enacted by George W. Bush in 2001.

But what of the Republicans? What are they trying to pull? Let us assume they aren’t making a colossal mistake. My theory is that they are trying to help her. Hillary's negatives are incredibly high. I believe they think that if she can get the nomination, they will win. Once the nomination is secure, its time to bring up Hillary Care, Whitewater, Vince Foster, Filegate and the various other Clinton related ‘gates’. It is the only plausible theory. So, Mrs. Clinton, how does it feel to be a part of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy?!

Either that or both Newt and Hillary are serious. Nah.
