Camile Paglia on Hillary Clinton’s Girly Men

Salon’s Camille Paglia answers one of the most pressing questions of our time:

What kind of person would go to work for a Clinton in the first place?

Chris Richard of Agora Hills wants to know why Hillary Clinton is surrounded with such beta-males. La Paglia answers:

I agree that the male staff who Hillary attracts are slick, geeky weasels or rancid, asexual cream puffs. (One of the latter, the insufferable Mark Penn, just got the heave-ho after he played Hillary for a patsy with the Colombian government.) If I were to hazard a guess, I’d say Hillary is reconstituting the toxic hierarchy of her childhood household, with her on top instead of her drill-sergeant father. All those seething beta males (as you so aptly describe them) are versions of her sad-sack brothers, who got the short end of the Rodham DNA stick.

Of course, her husband, Bill Clinton, is both a slick weasel and a rancid, sexy-as-hell cream puff. Best of both worlds.

And for seconds of fun: the Hillary Tall Tale Generator.

Camille Paglia in Salon: Still Agitatin’

FBLA is always glad when people agree with us, and having Camille Paglia agree with us is even more delicious. She’s answering readers’ questions in Salon:

And what does it say about PBS that it allowed a documentary on Leibovitz in its prestigious American Masters series to be filmed and directed by Leibovitz’s sister, Barbara?–a broadcast that was carefully timed to publicize Leibovitz’s new book. Does PBS, with its public funding, feel no responsibility for neutrality and objectivity?

We didn’t like this back in October.

She also weighs in on Nancy Pelosi and global warming.

And of course, Salon’s letter-writing readers are disappointed, disbelieving, and disturbed. That pretty much goes without saying.
