hillary makes play for stupid, selfish vote

Hillary Clinton’s campaign has clearly segmented the voters and focused on the population who likes to whine about energy prices and will embrace any plan, no matter how inane.

UPDATE: Hoping for that last-second push in Indiana, Hillary busted out this gem at a minor-league baseball stadium, “We’re going to knock balls out of the country’s park, for the home team, which is America.”

There are no typos in that sentence.

Credit must go to John McCain for getting the ball rolling on this stinker, but Hillary gets big points for not only supporting a stupid idea, but digging in against the entire economics profession when asked why her proposal could not find one_single_economist to endorse it: “I’m not going to put my lot in with economists. … We’ve got to get out of this mind-set where somehow elite opinion is always on the side of doing things that really disadvantage the vast majority of Americans.”

Apparently, Hillary is going with her gut on this own instead of listening to high-minded, so-called experts, with their “facts” and “years of study.” Remind you of anyone?

As Arnold Kling wrote, “Soon I expect to hear the Senator from New York promise to jump out of a tenth-story window and fly, to demonstrate defiance of “elite” physicists who doubt the feasibility of the project.
