Jane Smiley, I give you a standing ovation

I do believe that Jane Smiley has hit a home-run with this. The highlighted paragraph below is dare I say, poetry.

I'm Already Against the Next War

Some weeks ago, I wrote a Huff post about a remark Bill Clinton made, that if Hillary became the nominee, the presidential campaign would be exceptionally "polite". We now see that he wasn't joking. Both Clintons are in favor of the status quo, and will fight tooth and nail to maintain it. They are surrounded by advisors who both literally and figuratively are married to the Republicans. They are, indeed, now part of the "vast right wing conspiracy".
