Mean Betty on Hillary: Out of Sorts in Africa
How to explain Hillary’s undiplomatic Grumble in the Jungle
Hillary…you’ve got to take some of the “grrrr” out of the girl, girl. I know it’s been a bad couple of weeks for you. You’ve been stuck on sick leave and the current Big Guy in the Oval Office doesn’t seem to mind. No candy. No flowers. More envoys. Then, you go off for Hillary’s great adventure in Africa and the former Big Guy grabs all the headlines. But don’t let it get you down so much you snap at a student who asks you a question that may have been misinterpreted. Not even Barack Obama could compete with Bill Clinton jetting off like an aging white knight to rescue two damsels in distress from the evil ogre of Pyonyang? You can’t make this up.
And anyway, Bill borrowing Steve Bing‘s private jet to pursue private interests is nothing new. Neither is that rascal’s ability to suck up media air like a super-sized Lindsay Lohan. You’ve handled it all before and didn’t lose your cool. So, what’s really behind the grumble in the jungle Monday? Okay, the student who asked you what Mr. Clinton thought of the recent Congo deal with the Chinese could use a gender sensitivity training course, but there’s got to be more to it.
Was it the pants suit? You know, all of us have days when you’re down to the back of the closet and you have to throw on something that makes you look like Rosie O’Donnell on a bad day. Hey, just lose the lavender pants suit and don’t look back. And, girl, did you lose your make-up bag boogying down in Cape Town? You looked more like a recovering swine flu victim than I do, and I am a recovering swine flu victim. And the hair. If we weren’t BFF’s I couldn’t tell you this but, God made blow driers for a reason. Trust me on this one.
