Christine Todd Whitman, daughter of nobility, is doing a most ignoble and cowardly thing. She is submitting her book for peer review, and betting that the lack of wisdom contained therein, coupled with her photogenic, stupidly affable (and dull and predictable) television interviews will, at best, propel her back into some sort of political office or, at worst, put her in the running for a long-term talking-head/pundit gig.
Hey, when you’re a woman lacking acumen, but not ambition…this is the equivalent of a peerage. Regular airtime as a Sister-of-Venom, she will join the ranks of Ugly, Vulgar and Tawdry – ummm…sorry, I mean Couric, Ratner and Clift, and their crazy Aunt Mo as she spits out reliably anti-Bushian positions and hopes – ohhhh, as they allllll hope – for a position under President Hillary(!) Someday.
I’d have less criticism for Whitman’s complaints had she been able to cobble together anything approaching a Republican movement when she served in NJ. She didn’t. She was just another part of a corrupt and far too liberal government agenda, predominantly Democrat.
More to come on this, for sure.
