Book of the Year: St. Hillary of Hippo

While we await the threatened—and as yet untitled—memoir of Hillary Clinton, we can delight in a new book also about the inner reaches of Herself, coming in August: Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton. It’s 416 pages! Maybe they are blank pages like that other recent classic, Michael Knowles’s Reasons to Vote for Democrats? No—this is apparently a serious book. Hillary doesn’t joke around you know.

Who knew that Hillary was so devoted to the Bible each day. Move over St. Augustine of Hippo; make way for St. Hillary the Hippo. (As in hypocrite. What did you think I meant?) As the promo page on Amazon tells us:

As Secretary Clinton said in The New York Times (January 26, 2016), “My study of the Bible, my many conversations with people of faith, has led me to believe the most important commandment is to love the Lord with all your might and to love your neighbor as yourself. And that is what I think we are commanded by Christ to do. And there is so much more in the Bible about taking care of the poor, visiting the prisoners, taking in the stranger, creating opportunities for others to be lifted up,* to find faith themselves that I think there are many different ways of exercising your faith.”

Gosh, who knew? If only those stupid ignorant evangelicals in flyover country read this in the New York Times, they wouldn’t have voted against Herself by an 80 – 20 margin.

I can’t wait.

*All under the oversight of federal regulators of course, and fully compliant with Obamacare contraceptive and transgender access mandates.
