47. Can Someone Explain To Me: What Happened?
It doesn't add up.

I have many theories. But I can't buy the usual explanations for the Clintons' rapid degeneration: "lust for power" or "tone-deafness" or "stupidity."

There is no previous track record for these sudden mutations in character. Yes, they bend the rules or even act reprehensibly -- but always within the bounds of practicality and narcissism: They have previously refused to burn bridges like this, and they would never let themselves look this bad.

I'm thinking of Robert Altman's "Secret Honor" about Richard Nixon. Does Bill Clinton have inside information (think: Mena and the CIA, 9/11, etc.) that would lead him (and her, by proxy) to such a horrorific whatever-it-takes scorched earth strategy?

What's really going on?

P.S.: The Hillary lies are a separate matter: Imagine Hillary Clinton trying to warn the nation that 9/11 was an inside job, that the NSA is infiltrated with Neocon treasonist moles who have plans for a Chile-style military coup. She can never be believed. EVER. Even if she's not crying wolf.
