Hillary: I’m now available for Argo II

posted at 2:41 pm on September 26, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

Let’s see.  Argo told a story that took place in a larger context of an American diplomatic facility being sacked by radical Islamic extremists, after US action undermined the previous cooperative regime, which became an ongoing demonstration of American impotence.  Hasn’t Hillary Clinton already starred in Argo II?

Most of Affleck’s speech, though, was focused on his own philanthropic work in Congo, praising Hillary Clinton for her involvement with the country during her time as secretary of state. When she arrived on stage after her introduction, Clinton returned the praise for Affleck’s activism —but she had her mind on his movie work, too.

“I’m hoping that he films Argo II,” Clinton said. “I’m now available.”

A lot of us would like to see the inside story of what happened in Benghazi, too. Perhaps Clinton and her former advisers can testify under oath at a Congressional hearing to explain why the State Department didn’t have any contingency plans in place for a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11, why no action was taken to intervene during the eight hours of attacks on the American consulate, and why the State Department — and Hillary Clinton herself — insisted for days afterward that the attack was a demonstration over a months-old YouTube video rather than acknowledge it as a coordinated terrorist attack.

I’m certain that Congress would allow the film of that testimony to make it into a movie about the attack, although I’m not too sure that Secretary Clinton would have the same level of enthusiasm she showed last night.

Argo II? You mean Benghazi?

MikeInBA on September 26, 2013 at 2:45 PM

Wasn’t Argo II the Youtube video responsible for Benghazi?

Bitter Clinger on September 26, 2013 at 2:45 PM

Benghazi? That happened such a long time ago! Almost as long ago as “Fast and Furious”!

GarandFan on September 26, 2013 at 2:46 PM

I hope that her trial is filmed.

Akzed on September 26, 2013 at 2:47 PM

Man, what a thoughtless thing to say.

Who would play the role of Ambassador Steven’s corpse, or better yet who would play the role of a sleeping preznit Dog Eater while the attack was occurring.

Bishop on September 26, 2013 at 2:48 PM

See how the pig jokes?

See how the pig smiles?

See how irrelevant the lives of Americans are?

See how little the other pigs care about the involvement, or lack thereof, of the pig?

The pig is unworthy of the bottom of a septic tank.

She would befoul it.

OhEssYouCowboys on September 26, 2013 at 2:48 PM

Hasn’t Hillary Clinton already starred in Argo II?

Zing!!!

BJ* on September 26, 2013 at 2:48 PM

If the media weren’t in the tank for her, she would be starring in Path to 9/11, Part 2: Benghazi Bugaloo.

Christien on September 26, 2013 at 2:49 PM

The pig makes Columbo look like he’s straight out of GQ Magazine.

OhEssYouCowboys on September 26, 2013 at 2:50 PM

I’m hoping that he films Argo II,” Clinton said. “I’m now available.”

Isn’t he going to be busy as Batman? A doughy middle-aged Batman but Batman nonetheless.

Happy Nomad on September 26, 2013 at 2:51 PM

If Hillary were in a movie, you’d need a very wide lens and lots of long shots. No close-ups.

Bitter Clinger on September 26, 2013 at 2:51 PM

Hillary is the Ben Affleck of politics.

Beyond terrible.

Look at it this way. The make up people would be awarded the Oscars automatically.

The pig is the reigning Roseanne of American politics.

The pig is a slob – aesthetically and politically.

This is the Argo where all the Americans were killed, right?

Yep. He’s doing Gone Girl right now. Hey, maybe Hillary could do that movie.

What could be worse than
Ben Affleck as the Batman?
Hillary: Batgirl…

Haiku Guy on September 26, 2013 at 2:57 PM

ROTFLMAO!

Hillary’s imdb StarMeter is down 4,596 this week.

What happened? Did she break the casting couch?

Christien on September 26, 2013 at 2:57 PM

SPOILER: Everyone dies at the end.

Gatsu on September 26, 2013 at 2:59 PM

Hillary is in another country right now?

Does she know if terrorists attack Obama will order a “stand down” and she’s toast?

Turtle317 on September 26, 2013 at 3:00 PM

now playing: Zero Fat Ugly, starring Hillary RodHAM Clinton.

Maybe we’ll get lucky, and he’ll kill the franchise. He already did in Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan with The Sum Of All Fears, and succeeded in 86′ing a Marvel franchise right out of the gate with Daredevil. (Frankly, Elektra was twice as good, and it wasn’t too hot other than Jennifer Garner in revealing leather.)

In future, perhaps the studios can put Affleck on retainer for when they absolutely, positively want an excuse to stop making a movie series. Or get out of a contract to make one they had to sign onto as a package deal to get the rights to something else.

(AIUI, this was the genesis of Daredevil; Marvel wanted him as part of their Cinematic Universe, in spite of the character being difficult even to write, much less film; ask Frank Miller about that one sometime.)

John Kerry and Urcle

With The Benghazi Chronicles they don’t even have to worry about casting anyone to play Obama since he was AWOL for the whole thing.

Bitter Clinger on September 26, 2013 at 3:12 PM

I was hoping that Argo II was the name of that spaceship to Mars they were getting volunteers for.

It’s a propaganda film? Figures.

petunia on September 26, 2013 at 3:17 PM

HBO is supposedly doing the Benghazi film… wonder what they’ll say… not.

Oh man, you are irreverent! I love it!! It’s spot on.

Well, that was the most clueless and tone-deaf thing I’ve read all week. And it was meant as a joke to boot!

She should wear too tight jackets, like Merker…oh, wait…two ugly scumhags of the world, in full view, with NO shame.

YIKES!! That would make it a horror movie.

So will Hillery be answering “What difference does it make?’ to every question in the primary and presidential debates?

AverageJoe on September 26, 2013 at 3:45 PM

The sow has lots of blood on her hands, just like obama, not only on Benghazi.

Schadenfreude on September 26, 2013 at 3:46 PM

Ben’s moved on to the Batman role now, and I seriously doubt Hillary! could fit into Halle Berry’s Catwoman suit.

Shoot, she couldn’t fit into Lee Meriwether’s.

Adjoran on September 26, 2013 at 3:54 PM

52 lived in Argo. 4 died in Benghazi.

You’ll always be the evil villain of Benghazi, Hillary, no matter your role.
