THE SIZE OF HILLARY'S HEAD
From a review of For Love of Politics, a new book about the Clintons by Sally Bedell Smith of Vanity Fair:
...THE BOOK'S EDGE comes primarily from Ms. Smith's brutal dissection of Hillary Clinton's physical appearance. Each time Hillary is summoned forth is a fresh opportunity to the author to describe an attribute she finds repulsive. "Hillary had a large head," Ms. Smith writes early on. She continues, ticking through Ms. Clinton’s figure ("matronly"), her legs ("thick"), her hair ("wild and frizzy"), her glasses ("exceptionally thick"), her overbite, her glasses again ("no-line bifocals") and the "prominent buccal pouches" that pass for cheeks. Hillary's fashion sense and even her interior decorating come in for strafing, too. The tenor of the book is such that when Ms. Smith quotes another journalist as having written that Hillary looks "like a little pig, but cute," it's one of the nicer characterizations of the first lady....
This is our elite political discourse.
I weep for my country.
