"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

More Nonsense from the Most Brilliant Family Evah!

Chelsea Clinton apparently spoke recently at a feminist event:

From the stage at the recent Women Deliver conference, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s daughter Chelsea revealed that her much-admired maternal grandmother was the child of unwed teenage parents who “did not have access to services that are so crucial that Planned Parenthood helps provide.”
And, by "access to services that are so crucial that Planned Parenthood helps provide," she of course means abortion.   She is, it seems fair to say, wishing that her great-grandparents had had access to abortion services when they were "unwed teenage parents," so that her grandmother could have been aborted.

Now, remember... Bill Clinton was the Rhodes Scholar, smartest President ever.   Hillary Clinton was the smartest First Lady ever.   And their only child, Chelsea, has been feted since childhood as a brilliant future political star... a graduate of the toney DC-area prep school Sidwell Friends, Stanford, Oxford, etc.   We have been programmed by the media to nod vigorously when anyone lauds their intelligence, just as we've been told for a half-century that Adlai Stevenson was smarter than Dwight Eisenhower, that Kennedy was smarter than Nixon, that Carter was smarter than Reagan, that Gore was smarter than Bush, etc., etc.  

And, of course, with the smartness, we are told, liberals are also the most moral people, much more moral than those dirty Republicans who work in dirty business.   People like Chelsea Clinton (or Michelle Obama) wouldn't soil their hands by working in the for-profit sector.  

But, let's ask this question...  if she's so moral, why is she wishing that her own grandmother had never existed!  

And, if she's so smart, tell me, why is she wishing that neither she nor her mother, Secretary Clinton, had ever been born?
