Words, words, words

Polonius: What do you read, my lord?
Hamlet: Words, words, words.
Polonius: What is the matter, my lord?
Hamlet: Between who?

William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act 2, Scene 2

In the age of dog-whistled political correctness, where normal speech is censored and “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength,” a pro-Hillary group is adding their two cents worth:

So let’s repeat that: It’s sexist to refer to Hillary as polarizing calculating disingenuous insincere ambitious inevitable entitled over-confident secretive will-do-anything-to-win represents-the-past out-of-touch.

It’s enough to make one create the world’s longest hashtag:

Big media, which gave Hillary Clinton a standing O after being hectored for 20 minutes without a chance to ask questions, qualified the list of words:

Elsewhere, the Washington Post reported on the issue, noting in its version of the story that HRC Super Volunteers “is almost definitely not connected to official Team Clinton.”

I like that, “almost definitely.”

Aside from the paradoxical feminists-as-delicate-things attitude of the HRC Super Volunteers, and the coincidence with the list of words befitting a number of prominent Democrats, the list is missing one word:

CRIMINAL.

So there you have it: a word that is OK to use when referring to the Clintons.
