Can She Be Stopped? by John Podhoretz
In the run-up to the 1988 presidential election, Peter Kostmayer, a Democratic congressman, summed up his party’s strategy this way:
We’re not going to blow it this time. Just shut up, gays, women, and environmentalists. Just shut up. You’ll get everything you want after the election. But just, for the meantime, shut up so we can win.
According to John Podhoretz, a columnist for the New York Post, regular commentator on Fox News, and contributing editor of the Weekly Standard, Hillary Clinton and her supporters are intent on implementing the same strategy—and they are already smart enough to shut up about their true beliefs.
