Last month a video of a brief D.C. power meet-and-greet made the rounds. Al Sharpton is seen pointing to Hillary
Clinton and telling the group, “You better watch her.
She’s trying to ask whether I’m endorsing. I told her,
‘Only you know, and you’re not telling.’”
Hillary then drawls, “Mah lips ah sealed.”
It’s just as cringe-worthy as in the ’08 cam-
paign, when Hillary declared from the pulpit,
“Ah don’ feel no ways taaaaard.” On the 2016
campaign trail, she reminisces about, “Mah
gosh,” the ol’ days as a just a poor lawyer
workin’ for the Children’s Defense Fund, goin’
“down to Ah-la-bama” to fight segregation. No,
really. Then she whoops it up about her love of
“shrimp and grits.”
Looming in the background is the FBI — not
to mention Congress, a federal judge, and a
conservative watchdog. On March 2, The
Washington Post reported that Bryan Pagliano,
the guy who set up and maintained Hillary’s
infamous bathroom server, was given immunity
for his cooperation with the FBI. On 3/14/15
The Hill reported on the Senate Judiciary
Committee’s threat to subpoena another high-
level IT staffer due to his “specific knowledge
relating to Secretary Clinton’s private server
and email arrangement.” The next day, 3/15/16,
The Washington Post broke the story that U.S.
District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan has granted a
Judicial Watch request for discovery, in its
lawsuit “to determine whether Clinton’s email
arrangement thwarted federal open-records
laws.” JW plans to depose seven top Clinton
staffers, including chief of staff Cheryl D. Mills
and right-hand woman Huma Abedin.
So look for a doubling down on the preacher
cadences. Hillary will be just chock full of “y’all,”
and “mah goodness,” and “doncha know.” It’s
her Southern Strategy — the Hillary Clinton
indictment protection package. She cain’t hep it.
Bless her heart.
