Camille Paglia on Hillary Clinton, Feminism, and Ambition

Written by Paul Zannucci on 8:50 PM


I never planned on agreeing with Paglia so much. Perhaps, one must think, she and I have a chance after all. I do, now that I think of it, have a soft spot for strong women who like porn...ah, but I'm getting wistful again...

Anyway, in a story (titled with a British accent) for the Telegraph, Hillary Clinton's candidacy has done feminism no favours, we find a lot of wonderful quotes about the crazy, power hungry half of the dynamic Clinton duo.

Unlike the average AP reporter, Paglia, who never just falls in behind liberal lines, deserves a full read, so I'll just give a little teaser and let you go read the full article for yourself.

Right now, Hillary is in Godzilla mode, refusing to accept Barack Obama's looming nomination and threatening to tie the Democratic party in legal knots until the August convention and beyond. Those who think she will withdraw gracefully in a few weeks are living in cloud cuckoo land. The Clintons are ruthless scrappers who will lock their bulldog teeth in any bloody towel.

That is the most flattering part of the entire piece, so you should enjoy it. Paglia, despite her independent nature, is only attempting to light the torches of a progressive lynch mob for the benefit of Obama (I can't imagine that she would have written anything but a glowing feminist manifesto had Clinton long ago cinched the nomination), but it is still an entertaining anti-Hillary rant.
