AP Loves Hillary Getting Marriage Proposal

From a besotted Associated Press:

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y. reacts after a young man yelled to her asking to marry him during her speech at the IBEW in Los Angeles, Friday, Jan. 11, 2008.

Play of the Day: Clinton gets proposal

Sat Jan 12

CITY OF COMMERCE, Calif. – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton wanted to talk about the economy. A voter in the audience wanted to talk marriage.

After wrapping up a speech outlining her economic stimulus proposal, the New York senator took questions from the crowd. The first question from one man was: “Hillary, marry me, baby.”

The packed union hall loved it and applauded. Clinton smiled and told the man, gently, no.

“That is certainly the kindest offer I’ve had in a while,” she said to laughter.

She quickly added, “I’d probably be arrested.” …

The AP is right to call it a “play.” But of course they don’t mean it in that sense.

They mean to commend Hillary for her brilliant campaigning. Which maybe is true, if there are people stupid enough to believe this was spontaneous or in any way meaningful.

In reality it was probably just another act worked out in advance to try to make her seem “human.”

And we are supposed to believe it.
