Camille Paglia: “It remains baffling
how anyone would think that Hillary
Clinton is our party’s best chance”

Salon, by Tracy Clark-Flory

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 8/21/2013 12:33:58 PM

I can vividly remember the first time I read Camille Paglia. I was visiting New York with my mom during college and we happened across “Vamps and Tramps” at a bookstore near our hotel. Lying in neighboring twin beds, I read passages out loud to her. Explosive things like, “Patriarchy, routinely blamed for everything, produced the birth control pill, which did more to free contemporary women than feminism itself.” I didn’t always agree with Paglia, but I enjoyed her as a challenging provocateur. I still have that copy of the book. There are asterisks in the margins, double-underlined sentences and circled

Comments:
Paglia, a true thinker

FTA: "She has more sooty baggage than a 90-car freight train. And what exactly has she ever accomplished — beyond bullishly covering for her philandering husband? She’s certainly busy, busy and ever on the move — with the tunnel-vision workaholism of someone trying to blot out uncomfortable private thoughts."

Camille Paglia, when speaking about the Clintons, is the sexiest woman in America.

I wish I could write as well as Camille...she is my idol. Tell me, Camille, what do you really think of Bubba´s wife for President?

This is what you call "no holds barred" writing.

Although she´s several miles to the left of most of us here, Ms. Paglia is a erudite, half-twisted gadfly whose bons mots are consistently entertaining and provocative, if not always enlightening. I used to devour her Salon essays that were posted here.

I, too, have been a fan of Susan Lucci and All My Children, which I watched religiously in the early 1980s. How religiously? Well, when I was practicing or away at a tournament, I´d have the VCR set on the show, and looked forward to coming home and unwinding with Erica (aka Erotica), Palmer Cortlandt, Tadd (aka Tadd Pole), Greg and Jenny, Jesse and Angie, Brooke, Nina, Dack "I can´t think, Nina" Rambo, Cliff, Adam and Stuart Chandler, Liza Colby, Dr. and Mrs. Martin, Michael "Dan Pohl" Roy, and the Pine Valley cast of dozens. At the end of each episode, when the viewer was left, dangling and hooked, I´d exclaim, "Agnes Milhous Nixon!" (Agnes Nixon was the producer.)

Looks like the "fixers" that clean up after the Clintons will be out paying a visit to Camille. Don´t go to any parks in Washington, DC ala Vince Foster or take a Ron Brown flight on Bill´s private 727. Be careful out there - there is quite a list of people that have paid the ultimate price of crossing them.

The thing about Paglia that you have to admire is her love of good ideas, new ideas, and good old ideas.

That goes beyond a single ideology, separating her from the likes of the blinkered power-desiring Clintons and the blinkered early feminists. etc.

It´s not baffling at all, Camille. It´s the modern definition of the Democratic Party. Composed of elite Marxists leading a constituency mentally incapable of rational thinking, moral judgement or behavior. It´s a sad reality but, that´s the country we live in.

No #20, Bawney wears the dress, Hilliary the pants suit. We´ve gotta revive PIAPS as her appellation here AND never miss chance to remind people of her lying involvement in
1)controlling the bimbo eruptions for the horndog,
2)creating the RightWingConspiracy,
3)fleeing snipers in Bosnia,
4)fearing for Chelsea´s life on 9/11,
5)feelin´ no wise tarred,
6)trying to be an astronaut,
7)being named after Sir Edmund Hillary,
8)the many gates - whitewater, travel, FBI files, etc.

But the one we have to mention ad nauseum about anything she says...."What difference, at this point, does it make?"

Clinton should not be the party´s best chance, she should have NO chance!!

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- A man is facing charges after deputies say he was flying a video camera-equipped drone that hindered the landing of a medical helicopter at an accident scene. Kele Stanley, of Springfield, said he´s been unfairly charged and would have landed it immediately if he knew the medical helicopter was en route. "I´m not an idiot," he said. The hobbyist was flying the $4,000 drone over a crash scene on Saturday morning to shoot photos and video.

The administration’s “smart diplomacy” does not include providing aid to those who fight internal oppression or outside aggression and whose victory potentially would obviate the need for direct U.S. action. Hence, President Obama gave Iran’s Green Revolution the cold shoulder in June 2009. He denied aid, and then dragged his feet on delivering aid to non-jihadi rebels in Syria. Now, it should come as no surprise, he is unwilling to provide Ukraine with military aid or intelligence to defend itself against Russian aggression.

Census Survey Revisions

WASHINGTON — The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said. The changes are intended to improve the accuracy of the survey, being conducted this month in interviews with tens of thousands of households around the country. But the new questions are so different that the findings will not be comparable, the officials said. An internal Census Bureau document said that the new questionnaire

Very few of the young Americans who carried President Obama to electoral victory in 2008 have chosen to follow him into public service, The New York Times reports on Monday. Which made us wonder who inspired the current Congress to seek office. The answer? Two Republican stalwarts. There are a lot of caveats that should be applied to the Times story, not the least of which is that most candidates for office tend to skew a little older than the 18-year-olds that cast their first votes six years ago. But regardless, Jason Horowitz writes, "[u]nlike John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan,

SYDNEY—An unmanned vehicle was due to begin searching the Indian Ocean seabed for wreckage from Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -2.33% Flight 370 on Monday, as authorities lost hope of detecting any new signals from the missing jet´s black-box flight recorders. Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, who is leading the multinational search, said a series of "ping" signals detected last week by a U.S. Navy black box detector remains the most promising lead in the search for the plane, which disappeared en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur on March 8.

Several years ago, I happened to tune into a radio broadcast called "Jewish News and Views," conducted by Shifra Hoffman. The callers were berating Ms. Hoffman for spreading what they called the myth of rampant anti-Semitism. One man said he was tired of hearing about the Holocaust, and that "we Jews ought to stop whining about it." I called in and identified myself as a Christian who was very much aware of widespread but hidden anti-Semitism. I gave her examples of the anti-Semitic remarks I had heard from people in all walks of life who assumed I shared their views because

On New Year’s Eve in 2011, software developer Robin Seggelmann was in front of his computer trying to work out some kinks in the security software most of the Internet uses. That’s when he made a mistake, which led to one of the worst bugs ever in the Internet known as “Heartbleed,” a flaw in the security infrastructure (OpenSSL) for a large swath of the Web. Nowadays, it’s unusual for someone to step up and take responsibility, But Seggelmann, a German developer, did just that.

I never wanted to be a pawn in President Obama’s absurd and irresponsible attempt to mandate, regulate and complicate the American health care system. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of a choice. I was a casualty of Mr. Obama’s Big Lie. You know the one: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” By the time my plan vanished, the only individual health insurance plans available had been captured by the tentacles of Obamacare. Signing up for insurance under Obamacare was harder than making sense of Donald Trump’s hair. It took more than 20 attempts over

NEW YORK — Millions of passwords, credit card numbers and other personal information may be at risk as a result of a major breakdown in Internet security revealed earlier this week. The damage caused by the "Heartbleed" bug is currently unknown. The security hole exists on a vast number of the Internet´s Web servers and went undetected for more than two years. While it´s conceivable that the flaw was never discovered by hackers, it´s nearly impossible to tell. There isn´t much that people can do to protect themselves until the affected websites implement a fix. Here are answers to some common questions about

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
