Down with Plush!

By god, Hillary's right:
"We’re going to go right at OPEC," she said. "They can no longer be a cartel, a monopoly that get together once every couple of months in some conference room in some plush place in the world, they decide how much oil they’re going to produce and what price they’re going to put it at," she told a crowd at a firehouse in Merrillville, IN.

Too true. How dare they get together in their plush places and decide how much they get to sell their resources for! From now on, it's caves for all them A-Rabs!! Or at least a less plush place in the world, like a Best Western somewhere in Idaho. See how they like them conference rooms.

What's next? Will Hillary start demagoguing the fancy bottled waters these people drink while setting oil production rates? Or will she evoke the luxurious stretch SUV's that I'm sure these Arabs use before deciding how much of our money to steal? This is really too much. I'm not sure how much "Hillary the Wonk" was a real thing and always kind of thought it was just a memorization game, but "Hillary the Dumb Populist" is really too much. Plush places, indeed. Not that I'm so big into supporting OPEC, but this whole "plush places" bullshit is really just insulting. Especially as she knows as well as we do that she can't do a damn thing to stop OPEC from doing whatever the hell it wants, and that she's just playing us all like idiots. Harrumph!

The worst part is that I'm sure none of this bothers her in the least. She's doing what she has to do, and she'll never wake up one morning and feel as truly ashamed of herself as she really should. And when she loses, which she will, she'll blame all of us dumb rubes for not being dumb enough to fall for her stupid gimmicks and lamebrained faux-populism. For as much as the Hillary people imagine that they're finally helping vet Obama after too much glowing press, it's obvious that Hillary's the one who's finally being forced to show her true colors; and I for one am glad to see that we dodged this bullet. Four years of this bullshit would have killed me.
