Two incredible benies, the spectacle is self-inflicted, and it’s gratis.

Okay, for literati, this is a fun zone. Who can deny that in old videos Hillary looks axe-faced, a female Anton Harley (from Nathanael West’s The Day of the Locust and Gilbert Sorrentino’s Imaginative Qualities of Actual Things)? “Ax-face into the future”! Obama’s cultivated Billy Budd image is a total fraud, of course, though not quite because it casts HRC as Claggart. Insofar as the Dems seek to mis-write one another’s narratives it’s a meta-scene from Flann O’Brien’s At Swim-Two-Birds. Well, I hope this thread proliferates. Billy Budd vs. Lady MacBeth, too funny! Back for more later!

my favorite line:
I have always considered the Clintons as little more than a branch of William Faulkner’s Snopes family, in their cases Snopeses who have given high SAT scores a bad name.
