Video: The best Hillary impression you’ll ever see

posted at 10:25 am on May 12, 2008 by Allahpundit

Am I the last one to find out about this? It hit YouTube two months ago, and given the sort of heaving laughter it got out of me last night, I figure it must have long since gone viral. In case not, here’s the full series of clips, none of which are as good as this one (although this is close) for the simple reason that none succeed more wildly at capturing Her Majesty’s essential phoniness. Hillary singing “Lady Marmalade” is cheap, absurdist fun; Hillary rehearsing her “spontaneous” interactions with the crowd before a speech — that’s a psychological study.

If you decide to pick through the other clips, I recommend the lounge singer one. Given the kind of debt she’s racking up — which Team Obama swears it won’t help her with — she may have to put out a tip jar before too long.

Now that’s good — she even has the subtle tones dead on…amazing.

Richard Romano on May 12, 2008 at 10:30 AM

She sounds a lot like her. haha

p40tiger on May 12, 2008 at 10:30 AM

Wow. She’s way better than the Hillary impersonator they have on SNL.

SDnocoen on May 12, 2008 at 10:30 AM

Ooof! This lady would’ve had a great 4 year career if Hill had pulled it out!

BJ* on May 12, 2008 at 10:34 AM

All that is missing is her spewing profanity while throwing the lamp at Bubba Billy’s head!

pilamaye on May 12, 2008 at 10:34 AM

That is uncanny.

Jim Treacher on May 12, 2008 at 10:35 AM

That’s a really, really good impression. A pretty funny monologue, too.

Yoosaion on May 12, 2008 at 10:35 AM

That is pretty good. Somebody should hire her.

SoulGlo on May 12, 2008 at 10:36 AM

SNORT. My stomach is still hurting. And my nostrils, too.

The Lady Marmalade one was hilarious.

Michelle on May 12, 2008 at 10:37 AM

For the record, I like this one even better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCegY59Y46o

Given the kind of debt she’s racking up — which Team Obama swears it won’t help her wit

For what, $10M – $20M, he can buy Hillary. He can buy reconciliation. He can at worst buy her silence and at best, her enthusiastic support, but no. He’s going to let his hatred of her stand in the way of a smart business decision. Here’s a man who will talk to leaders dedicated to America’s destruction and who are responsible for American deaths, yet he can’t get over his personal hatred of her. Think about that…

TheBigOldDog on May 12, 2008 at 10:41 AM

She nailed it. I’ll be reviewing the rest of her stuff this evening. Great find AP, thanks!

swami on May 12, 2008 at 10:41 AM

I don’t know why SNL hasn’t called her up yet????

Seven Percent Solution on May 12, 2008 at 10:44 AM

Dead-on, sans the 100 lb thighs.

fogw on May 12, 2008 at 10:50 AM

Wow! The voice, the gestures, and the delivery are dead on. Plus, she mocks the Hillary! talking points with bulls-eye accuracy.

onlineanalyst on May 12, 2008 at 10:53 AM

Wow, it’s really a shame that she won’t be able to do that much longer…

marc@hubsandspokes on May 12, 2008 at 10:54 AM

She does need to add several more pounds and get uglier to make it really complete on the visual. But her voice is dead on.

kirkill on May 12, 2008 at 10:54 AM

Unlike SNL, that was funny.

jukin on May 12, 2008 at 10:59 AM

She’s way hotter than the real one.

bernzright777 on May 12, 2008 at 10:59 AM

Give her an Oscar…….I mean it.

ThePrez on May 12, 2008 at 11:03 AM

HAH! Brilliant.

SarahW on May 12, 2008 at 11:14 AM

That’s not just funny; it’s brutal and devastating. Perfect impression, *great* deconstruction of a politician’s stage act. You could do that with any number of politicians, and I’d be surprised if someone hadn’t, but with Hillary, who’s so staged and calculated, it’s amazingly insightful.

Well-Armed Lamb on May 12, 2008 at 11:14 AM

Very good impression.

Spirit of 1776 on May 12, 2008 at 11:16 AM

Most amusing. Bet she looks a lot better in a pantsuit.

JammieWearingFool on May 12, 2008 at 11:25 AM

hahaha

trailortrash on May 12, 2008 at 11:51 AM

Dead on. That was great!

CP on May 12, 2008 at 11:53 AM

This is probably the only woman in America who would be safe if left alone with Bill Clinton.

EJDolbow on May 12, 2008 at 12:08 PM

That’s much better than SNL.

Just saying you are Hillary isn’t funny, but acting and looking Hillary is hysterical.

Hening on May 12, 2008 at 12:20 PM

You know who she sounds like? Some politician lady, can’t remember her name…

stonemeister on May 12, 2008 at 12:20 PM

Definitely too funny, and accurate, for television.

Cylor on May 12, 2008 at 12:23 PM

Can you imagine how many hillary speeches she had to watch? hahaha poor woman

apollyonbob on May 12, 2008 at 12:41 PM

Now to find her pulling off the Hillary laugh..

I started playing it with a window in front, so when I heard it I was in a bit of a ‘wtf?’ state, since it.. sounded just like her..

Reaps on May 12, 2008 at 12:59 PM

Hilarious (or should I say, Hillaryous…. hmmmm /deliberately stupid joke), thanks for that AP, she was great.

I’m almost tempted to do my own version of Obama, only as a white guy I’d need to don blackface/hair to fit the part, and that wouldn’t look good… but I do have the voice down. If you listen to his speeches, you’ll notice he’s simply doing the same “The Rock” impersonation I (and I’m sure many others) perfected nearly 10 years ago.

RightWinged on May 12, 2008 at 1:09 PM

This is a wonderful find. I can’t thank you enough AP…I’d never seen this either.
I don’t know where that soulful side of HRC came from either but I think that she could tour with Chaka Khan when she gets out of the race, ‘cuz nobody in the Demo party is gonna pay her back for that Presidential run; the one that forces at least 50% of us to gag by thinking about the insane possibility of another 4-8 years of the Clintons in the WH.
I don’t have Clinton derangement syndrome, I just want to Mooooveon.org.

Christine on May 12, 2008 at 1:23 PM

I just learned something new by thinking about what TheBigOldDog had to say. Thanks.
It makes sense, but since when do the libs do anything logical? Besides, ‘I like to watch’…(the destruction:-)

Christine on May 12, 2008 at 1:35 PM

She only seems to miss the mark on two points…The three points that can’t be helped.

She’s a lot more attractive than the real thing, she’s a lot funnier (Never mind observing Hillary…Pupinella Ricci must have come from a LOT of watching not only RAI, but Galavision as well) and she can be photgraphed without going into a serious “deer in the headlights” facial spasm…

Really Good Stuff, Rosemary!

52Ranger on May 12, 2008 at 2:04 PM

(Sorry about the two, three thing…Democratically edited math classes as a child)

52Ranger on May 12, 2008 at 2:05 PM

God! That was great!

TheSitRep on May 12, 2008 at 2:36 PM

Holy crap that was awesome.

29Victor on May 12, 2008 at 3:26 PM

Essence captured.

silverfox on May 12, 2008 at 4:08 PM

This is surreal that we both apparently saw this same clip on the same day. Do you visit NeoGAF?

Typhonsentra on May 12, 2008 at 4:12 PM

Fantastic perfomance. Lots of talent here… I enjoyed it :)

Hunt035 on May 12, 2008 at 4:40 PM

Ooof! This lady would’ve had a great 4 year career if Hill had pulled it out!

BJ* on May 12, 2008 at 10:34 AM

marc@hubsandspokes on May 12, 2008 at 10:54 AM

You say that as if you think Hillary’s actually going away completely. Get real. How soon do we start the countdown for the Hillary equivalent of the “I guess we won’t have Dick Nixon to kick around any more” speech?

This is probably the only woman in America who would be safe if left alone with Bill Clinton.

EJDolbow on May 12, 2008 at 12:08 PM

Do you think such a species exists??

Captain Scarlet on May 12, 2008 at 6:41 PM

So if Hillary’s the smartest woman in the known Universe; what does that make the woman who absolutely pegs her for such overtly mass-manipulative behavior?

Just askin’.

Funny, for a second there I was feeling impressed with Hillary’s “Spirit”. This gal opens my eyes to the reality that was the very first lady to the first black President in the US of A.

I am so tired ‘o the phony. Great clip.

ChipDWood on May 12, 2008 at 8:07 PM

priceless. :D

PolitiNOOB on May 12, 2008 at 8:56 PM

He’s smiling and maybe wearing a secret service man’s pants.

Awesome.
