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.
