Local leftoad Bob Ellis tries out some of that Hillary-hatin’ so popular these days with the Obamic US left:
I’m getting to hate this woman.
Her towering frigidity, blazing hubris, bellowing mendacity, varying accent from region to region, her high school-standard acting and ceaseless haughty impersonation of Debbie Reynolds in The Unsinkable Molly Brown have got me properly simmering ...
She is a stranger to consistency, sincerity and (at a guess) oral sex ...
By contrast, Barack Obama is ...
... an intelligent, good and measured public man of, thus far, clean conscience.
We know he’s faithful to his wife.
Presumably due to her oral talents, if Bob’s any judge. Reader Perry picks up on that point in comments at Ellis’s (taxpayer funded) site:
How dare you add a woman’s perceived willingness to engage in oral sex as a marker of her character ... Sexist scum.
To which Bob charmingly replies:
I wouldn’t normally have raised this aspect of her private life but Hillary’s failure to ‘keep the dog on the porch’, as the famous Arkansas phrase puts it, had this not then caused, or partly caused Monica, the impeachment, Karl Rove’s ‘morality politics’, Gore’s loss, Bush’s win and, by global warming, the end of the world; like the length of Cleopatra’s nose it’s been, as it turns out, a big factor in everything that followed including a million deaths in Iraq and therefore probably worth noting by historians like me.
There you have it: according to Ellis, Hillary Clinton’s mouth is - by inactivity - the cause of one million Iraqi deaths and “the end of the world”. Another commenter asks of Bob:
When did marital fidelity suddenly become a virtue in your eyes?

UPDATE. “Amazing,” writes Mark Steyn. “The mouth that launched a million deaths. Bill was denied, people died.”
UPDATE II. Ellis wasn’t previously so alarmed by the prospect of President Hillary. In 2005 he mentioned “the Presidential glow of Hillary Clinton”, and in 2003 came one of Bob’s always-accurate predictions:
Bush will be out of the White House and Dean, or Gephardt, or Gore, or Hillary Clinton in it, with Wesley Clark as Vice-President, by this time next year. And the US out of Iraq by July. See if I’m wrong.
You keep saying that, Bob. And we keep seeing it.
UPDATE III. A view from the left:
There’s a sad trend of self-proclaimed leftist men snapping and hurling sexist slurs in weirdly demented ways, and Ellis’ drivel is simply another example of it.
UPDATE IV. And further from the moderate left:
Something tells me Mr. Ellis has some serious emotional issues he needs to work out.
