The sophisticated Hillary 2016 machine is ramping up – courtesy of its Hollywood allies – with a full length feature movie about the beautiful young Hillary Clinton and her intrepid pursuit of the evildoer Richard Nixon.
Hillary, you may be aware, was on the staff of the House Judiciary Committee that ultimately impeached Nixon. I’ve never seen any suggestion she played more than a bit role in the affair. Wikipedia states that she “helped research procedures of impeachment and the historical grounds and standards for impeachment.”
But that won’t concern Hollywood. Among those being considered to play Clinton are several stunning actresses, including Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon, and Scarlett Johansson. No doubt she’ll be portrayed discovering that one clue needed to impeach Nixon, even as shadowy figures and jealous rivals try to derail her vital work.
There are reports circulating now that she was actually fired from her job, though I can’t substantiate them. If it’s true and it makes the movie, no doubt her dismissal will have been engineered by some malignant Republican desperate to save Nixon by thwarting our noble heroine.
I’m thinking a better movie might have been made – kind of an action-buddy flick with Chelsea – about her brave bullet dodging in Bosnia as first lady.
Stay tuned for an inevitable flick about Joe Biden saving the nation from Judge Bork.
