Mash Notes for HRC; Eastasia Rising

The American Conservative notes the trend.

The neocon surge towards Hillary as Secretary of State, a position which she reportedly has accepted, has already begun. The current Weekly Standard features two puff pieces on her lauding her “conservative” credentials. One, describing her as a real hawk, is by Michael Goldfarb. Goldfarb is the former McCain campaign staffer who notoriously claimed on national television that there are a number of anti-Semitic associates of Barack Obama, though he declined to name them. Apparently Hillary, though a Democrat, passes the sniff test.

It's become de rigeur to mention "1984" when discussing the Obamaplans; usually, the concentration is on domestic affairs.

Largely forgotten, however, is the perma-war on Eastasia.
