Is ‘Extreme Hillary Makeover’ Working?

Going into the election season, Hillary’s people knew they’d have a huge chore, as being charged with putting Karl Marx in convincing centrist drag is no small job, but is it working?

There has been story after story in the past few days about how “surprisingly likable” Hillary is on the campaign trail. I was watching one network news story yesterday where a reporter actually referred to her as “centrist.” Centrist? This guy would have reported the Titanic sinking as “damp.”

Pathetic Clinton suck-up and perma-annoyance on cable news programs Lanny Davis said that people are finding out that Hillary isn’t this demonic satan in a pantsuit she’s been made out to be because she’s smiling, laughing and shaking hands. You have to get a kick out of how the left is spinning the right’s opinion of Hillary Clinton: The fact that she doesn’t literally have cloven hooves and devil horns is proof of her pure motives and that conservatives are paranoid and delusional.

Forget that she’s said, not too long ago, that the government should “take things from you on behalf of the common good” and that she wants to socialize everything up to and including making every square on your Monopoly game “community chest.” She’s smiling when she says these things, and serving home made cookies, so it’s got to be okay, right?

If people refuse to look into Hillary’s past and what she’s made obvious as to what her socialist goals are, there’s a good chance that many of those who fell for her phony makeover will be in for a big surprise after she takes the oath of office in January of 2009.

“Look, she’s beautiful… she’s… hey wait a minute… noooo!”
