Now there’s a phrase that passes the Gates of Vienna rules: “bat guano”. It’s also the most amazing fertilizer for straw bale gardening. Have we hit upon a Final Solution for Hillary?
More importantly it’s the crucial question posed by these three guys, men who consider the passing scene from their perspective at “The Right Angle”, an increasingly clever scrutiny of politics and culture.
They formerly held forth as “Trifecta” in a previous incarnation at Pajamas Media. Now they’re out in the wider world, and getting downright frisky at Bill Whittle’s place. I’ve watched them long enough to become a dedicated fan who can clearly see three heads are better than one. Especially these three examples of Crania Americana.
In this episode they are riffing on a new tell-all book about the antics of Hillary and Bill during their tenure in the White House during the last century, a place from which they were reduced to stealing the furniture on the way out the door. Fortunately, they went on to find more remunerative work later, enabling the Clintons to return the people’s artifacts to their rightful home at The White House.
The book in question is a current best-seller, written by a former member of the uniformed Secret Service, those people charged with protecting the President of the United States and his family:
For the author, one existential question became, “are we supposed to protect the President from his family, i.e., his sometimes violent spouse, Hillary Rodham?”. The stress of living with that question affected the author’s health until he was able to transfer out of those strenuous duties at the White House into another part of the same bureaucracy.
He also examines the dedicated pursuit of Bill Clinton by Monica Lewinsky, and the many times he was forced to stiff arm her away from the door to the Oval Office, sometimes because the President had another winsome visitor ensconced in his inner sanctum.
For our non-American readers, the three players are:
- Scott Ott, (in)famous as the founder of ScrappleFace, a political satirist of the early part of this fast-aging century.
- Stephen Green, known more familiarly as VodkaPundit, has an arch to his eyebrow that must have taken years to perfect. He still enjoys facetime on Pajamas Media, but it seems to be in the form of these Right-Angled Truths he creates with Whittle and Ott.
- And Bill Whittle, he of “Eject, Eject, Eject”, has been hanging around in various venues since, oh, probably the days of the bulletin board internet.
This is a case where the sum is more than the total of its parts, but it’s a work in progress as they evolve from their Trifecta personae to this newer Right Angle Triangle. As much as I’m enjoying them now, I predict they will mellow into les eminences grises, something the ‘conservatives’ need badly. As we on the right are discovering, the current crop of talking heads are not mellowing. Instead, they are turning into vinegar as they froth at Donald Trump’s audacious existence. How dare he?
If those others had their way, we’d only have the bat-guanatress. Some choice.
