Hillary Clinton is taking pandering to a whole new level.
The way she behaves makes me think of an episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” when Buffy and Cordelia were both running for Homecoming Queen. Buffy donned a letterman’s sweater to get the jock vote. Cordelia pretended to be a Trekkie to get the chess club vote. “Are you kidding? I’ve been doing the Vulcan death grip since I was four!”
Hillary appeared on a NYC Urban/Hip Hop station’s morning show and, when asked if there was something she always carried with her, Hillary answered, “Hot sauce.”
Apparently, Beyoncé’s song “Foundation” includes the lyrics, “I keep hot sauce in my bag, swag.” I’ll just have to take Hot Air‘s word on that. I don’t know any Beyoncé songs.
My guess is, neither does Hillary.
But of course, if you’re going to be on a Urban/Hip Hop radio station, you have to pretend to know something about Beyoncé. I’m sure if Hillary goes on a Latin radio program, she’ll find a way to work in the line, “Hey, hips don’t lie!”
(Yes, I may not know Beyoncé, but I know Shakira).
One of the show’s co-hosts even called Hillary out on this shameless pandering. “I want you to know,” she said, “that people are going to see this and say, ‘She’s pandering to black people.'”
And Hillary’s response?
“Okay. Is it working?”
The reason Hillary is haunting New York City’s different Democrat demographics like Marley’s ghost is because the majority of Democrat voters reside downstate. Any regular New Yorker could have told you that. Most of the Leftist kook politicians that are turning this great state into a toilet come from the New York City metropolitan area. And since Hillary hopes to do to the country what New York City Liberal Democrats have done to this state, naturally, she’s going to pull out all the stops to win these voters over.
And if that means pretending to be hip to Beyoncé, then, by God, she’s going to do it. If that means heading up to Washington Heights and dancing like Elaine from “Seinfeld” to Latin music while local Latino politicians laugh and wave, then she’s gonna put on her best boogie shoes. If that means pulling out that hideous faux black dialect when meeting with Al Sharpton, then, honey, she don’t feel no ways tahred. And, oy, gevalt! If she has to kibitz with the yentehs to get the Jewish vote, then fear not bubeleh. She’ll kibitz with the whole mishpokhe.
Hillary is like a one-man band. She plays every ethic demographic all by her lonesome.
I’d like to think voters aren’t so stupid as this. But then again, look at who is leading in New York state in both the Republican and Democrat primaries. The difference of course, is while Hillary pretends to be down with every New York City ethnic group, Donald is rallying all over upstate New York — a region that, before running for President, Donald didn’t even notice existed.
It really is two parts shameless and one part pathetic.
