On the Hillary Clinton 1994 Humor Suggestions Memo.

Well, Buzzfeed found a 1994 memo that suggested some japes and jocularity that then-First Lady Hillary Clinton could utter in order to show that, no, really, it’s just fine that they lost the midterms in a dramatic fashion. ┬áNo. Really! Hear her laugh? ┬áJust like a human being, that laugh!

…Yeah, they were pretty bad jokes. Harmless, though – except for the ‘rezoned’ one, which I cannot repeat here. It’s kind of weird: prior to Monica Lewinsky, it would be a real stretch to see that as anything except a real estate joke; afterward, it’s virtually impossible to see it as anything but a sexualized one. Certainly if anybody repeated it today you could probably see the outrage storm from low Earth orbit…

  1. Huh. I’m not the target audience, but those are some horrible, horrible jokes. Might get a laugh out of someone it they were done by an actor, playing her on Saturday Night Live, but told by HRC?

    Is she a decent speaker, and just needs better speechwriters?

  2. Hillary! is just not a good politician. sorta like the east german female olympians… you can tell they were supposed to be female but it’s pretty obvious that they’re not.
