Last Friday, I noticed a breaking story, potentially a huge media scandal, involving Democratic front-runner Hilary Clinton. What was it? Voter supression? Campaign finance fraud? Some ancient skeleton rattling free from her closet?
Not so much….
A waitress in an Iowa diner mentioned that she had not received any tip from when the Clinton campaign had her serve them lunch. Of course that turned out to not be the case, they had left a tip for all the staff with the restaurant manager and the waitress had not known that at the time.
So…phony and irrelevant event distracts the media…what else is new? What’s new is a little blunt honesty injected into the comotion by the waitress herself:
Ms. Esterday said she did not understand what all the commotion was about.
“You people are really nuts,” she told a reporter during a phone interview. “There’s kids dying in the war, the price of oil right now — there’s better things in this world to be thinking about than who served Hillary Clinton at Maid-Rite and who got a tip and who didn’t get a tip.”
She just forgets, as many of us often do, that the mainstream political media is simply living in a bizarro parallel universe where haircuts and lapel pins are more important than health care and warfare.
