The new definition of chutzpah.

The definition of "chutzpah" used to be the kid who murdered his parents and then begged the judge for clemency on the grounds that he was an orphan. No more. The new definition of chutzpah is Hillary Clinton spurning public campaign funds in order to have no ceiling on private contributions, getting burned by tainted dough, and then saying
"The only answer to this entire set of circumstances is public financing," the New York senator said during an appearance on ABC's This Week. "The cost of campaigns … and all the things that people have to do in a modern campaign are just out of control."
And it got reported with a straight face.

Say what you will about the woman, she ain't lacking in brazen gall.

"Say what you will about the woman, she ain't lacking in brazen gall."

And this is EXACTLY what scares the living shit out of me about this woman.

Hitler, or Stalin, with a skirt.

Well, now that she says something like that, one has to wonder if that was not her primary goal all along... The Clintons are far from stupid, and have used all manner of devious and conniving strategies in the past.

That said, I wonder how Presidential candidates managed 100 years ago... or even 50.
