Ignore the Following
WASHINGTON – The screencapture above was just one of two treats from the New York Post over the weekend.
As far as Michelle was concerned, Oprah’s billions and her elite lifestyle disqualified her as an adviser to Barack, who had no truck with wealthy people, except as a source of campaign contributions, and was a redistributionist at heart. – Excerpt of “The Amateur,” by Edward Klein
Speaking of amateurs, a word about Edward Swiftboat Writer Masquearading as Truth Klein.
Just one of the quotes in his fireplace fodder against Hillary Clinton, “The Truth About Hillary,” was anonymously dropping that “she’s been botoxed to the hilts,” allegedly from some “New York physician who had knowledge of such matters” (page 220). “Those matters” being botox, not Clinton.
So, no one should be surprised that Klein treats his readers to a cat fight Democratic style, this time starring Michelle Obama and Oprah, with Valerie Jarrett having a supporting role. The man’s a pig, no offense to the pink cuties.
The line emphasized in bold at the top is a perfect example of a Kleinism. Obama “had no truck with wealthy people”? Epic phrase that rendered me into fits of laughter.
Klein’s stuff about Rev. Wright in the New York Post about being “bribed” with $150,000 is priceless. If Wright had actually been offered the money by “one of Barack’s closest friends,” the woman or man who offered it would have been a hero if Wright had taken it. Wright was a perpetually exploding rhetorical grenade, so any person on team Obama would have been committing professional malpractice not to have offered cash to Wright to be quiet.
The rest of the Regnery drivel is likely just as bad, though I really hope Klein has finally learned to write chapters over four or five pages in length. Guess the publisher feels for the reader and believes keeping the chapters short, the reader’s gag reflex won’t lock due to overuse.
