Theme and Variations on a theme by Hillary, section 1, part A

I came across this vintage article, but like classical music never seems to lose its allure. Just as a great Bach fugue withstands re-hearing many times, we are able to re-enjoy some sweet tastes of the recent past.

Theme: I shudda won--You Americans are stupid!

Variation 1: The Russians hacked me to death.

Part A: It's because of them that I had no platform.

The Russians suppressed my campaign platform.. This gem originated in 2017--new to me, though. Maybe new to you too.

Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager Robby Mook appeared on CNN Sunday, claiming that it was Russia’s fault that “Hillary wasn’t able to talk about what she was going to do to help people.”

Mook, appearing in a segment about Bill and Hillary Clinton speculating on Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, said, “You know, Hillary brought up all of this information that was being trafficked online. That’s why we have to stop what the Russians were able to do, because Hillary wasn’t able to talk about what she was going to do to help people. And that’s what these elections should be about. They should be about what a candidate is going to do to help people.”

Translation: Vlad made me avoid all issues except 'I'm not Trump'

Really folks, she wanted to better educate us, really. Even if were too intellectually disadvantaged to learn from her wisdom.

Thanks. My mother is a classical organist...I have heard this literally THOUSANDS of times, and it NEVER gets old. In fact, it still brings tears to my eyes, when the pedal comes in.

I'm a fan of old horror movies. So when I hear Bach I see Hillary playing an organ while wearing a long black cape and someone plucks off her mask...

A PROUD Hillary hater since 1993

@doh1304 , you can see he is playing four voices...most of the time two or three, but by 2:25 into it he has all four going at once. The top line of music is right hand, second line left hand (though for that second voice, it moves up to the lower part of the top line), and bottom is the pedal.

My job as a kid was to follow along, and turn the page when necessary.

is that for those of us who are clearly not stupid, it only makes them look stupid for saying these stupid things. So how fucking stupid is that?

@CB

It seems we've forgotten Her (Hillary Clinton) in favor of Herr J.S. Bach!

(Herr Bach would probably have made a better President than Her, too!)

Boris Karlof horror movie. And for a bonus, Bela Lugosi.

I loved those old things. Especially Roger Korman’s.
