All She Needs Are a White Beard, a Red Suit and Some Reindeer

If you haven’t already seen Hillary Clinton’s Christmas ad, here it is. For a short ad, it’s pretty appalling. She not only confirms but embraces the conservative stereotype of the liberal as would-be Santa Claus. I’m not sure how effective it will be. It will probably occur to even the most dim-witted viewer that they would only be Hillary’s presents to us if she were paying for them.

UPDATE: A reader writes that “the notion of Hillary Clinton as Santa Claus should replace coal in the stocking as a behavior control device for America’s children.”
Members of the Power Line Forum are discussing Hillary’s “gifts” to the nation here.
