Maureen Dowd keeps the trial balloon aloft in her Sunday column that equates today’s GOP with “Southern gentry overrun by Yankee carpetbaggers in ‘Gone with the Wind.'”:
But history will no doubt record that withering Republicans were finally wiped from the earth in 2016 when the relentless (and rested) Conquistadora Hillary marched in, General Bill on a horse behind her, and finished them off.
Sounds like a good result to me even if Dowd botched her metaphors. Hillary did a great job in the Senate and at State, and four years should be plenty of time to write a best-selling book and build an insurmountable campaign war chest. She did hire some absolute wretches to run her campaign, but perhaps she could avoid that mistake this time around and, in practice, who could stand against her?
