Chelsea Clinton in the NY Post

“slithy toves” provided a link to a NY Post article about Chelsea Clinton which makes Chelsea seem to be a spoiled brat who is so used to people sucking up to her that she just thinks it’s the Natural Order.

This also demonstrates how a family-created foundation gives your children something to do besides staying home and watching TV. Another example of how only the rich can afford to work.

  1. It *is* the natural order. Rich and powerful people demand that their asses be kissed, and if you don’t they will find somebody who will.

    • There will always be someone who will take a job, but that doesn’t mean the organization gets any value-creating work done if everyone is busy kissing ass.

  2. Her parents are both narcissists. Would we expect anything different?

    • When Bill was still an Arkansas politician he would get needled for his long speeches, which were caused by his refusal to resume speaking after delivering routine applause lines until the clapping died down.

      Politician Speaking 101 is to give the audience a few seconds to applaud, then resume speaking right away which will cause them go quiet almost instantly unless you just delivered the quote of the year.

    • Bill was a narcissist but he wanted to be liked. He went out of his way to be likeable and everyone did like him. It’s Hillary who’s unbearable.

  3. I donated to the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund in 2005.

    The Clinton Foundation either bought or simply took over their e-mail list and began spamming me shortly thereafter with come-ons from their celebrity endorsers like Ben Affleck and Tony Bennett.

    Jeb would probably love to milk that list as well, but as far as I can tell the Bushes never tried to capitalize on it. Not one single spam from their side.

  4. Sidenote: I think I’m the only person who’s found Chelsea to be rather attractive, historically. She’s my same age, so I feel like I grew up with her, plus I know a bunch of kids who went to Sidwell with her.

    • I think she’s more attractive than the average woman her age.

      • She’s married to a wealthy Jewish guy, whose family background is also prolish.

        Both of CC’s parents-in-law were Congressmen.

        So if they are prole, then everyone is.

      • She’s had a nose job and a chin job. She’s not fat though, which right away puts her ahead of most prole women.

      • Americans are all proles in varying degrees. I’ve said this before. The other 1st world nations are sitting back, enjoying themselves, laughing at us. Just look at those Americans, they’ve become prolier than ever.

        It’s true, America has gotten prolier than a decade ago. I see it with the people, the way they look, never mind the tattoos, there are more overweight young men and women, who are also poorly dressed.

        Don’t forget our 3rd world status cities, most of them are in terrible shape with decaying infrastructure. And the travesty behind all of this, Americans are paying 1st world prices for 3rd world prolemenities.

      • It doesn’t matter how far you go or how much money you make, you never outgrow your childhood. One can modify some things so that they don’t stand out. One can even be successful in another class. But they’ll never belong to that class the way someone who grew up in it.

      • Bill is a power prole. But, as we all know by now, nevertheless prole will out.

        I seem to recall that a few generations are traditionally required before you’ve ascended from proledom. Probably wise.

  6. It makes you wonder what her husband and the nannies have to put up with. The strange thing about Chelsea is she’s so astonishingly boring that it’s surprising she could drum up any drama at all.

    She also appears to have had a ton of cosmetic surgery post-30.

  7. Slightly O/T: Will you be posting about the gang killings in Waco, Texas, that involve proles vs proles? Some people in the media were saying that these guys are highly intelligent, but lacked impulse control.

    Those bikers are like the Mafia with their criminal organizations, unlike NAMs with their petty street gangs.

      • Perhaps, but they do practice diversity, on HBD terms. No blacks. Biker gangs were never inclusive of them and never will be. You’ll find Hispanics, surprisingly a few East Asians, Middle Easterners, Jews, and Hindus, if they ever want to join.

        blacks are only good for the Crips and the Bloods, who are mere petty street thugs (due to their lower IQs).

        These biker guys got it right with their affirmative action recruitment.

    CIOs Get Clever About Finding Needed Skills as IT Talent Shortage Grows

    http://blogs.wsj.com/cio/2015/05/19/cios-get-clever-about-finding-needed-skills-as-it-talent-shortage-grows/

    A shortage of qualified IT talent challenges CIOs trying to respond to the tech demands of business.

    Fifty-nine percent of CIOs and other IT executives face a skills shortage…more than 20% of technology executives said they are actively looking for new jobs. The report polled 3,691 technology leaders worldwide. The skills shortage comes as changes in technology continue to outpace technology education. Hardest to find are professionals with experience in analytics, change management and app development…For some companies, filling the skills gap means hiring workers under the controversial H-1B visa program, which allows companies to hire non-immigrant foreign nationals for specific jobs. For 2016, the cap is 65,000. Other companies have critical work done offshore. “Outsourcing has shifted from being about labor arbitrage to addressing a growing problem in the U.S. of not having the talent,”…

    • For some companies, filling the skills gap means hiring workers under the controversial H-1B visa program, which allows companies to hire non-immigrant foreign nationals for specific jobs.

      Tech companies want cheap, incompetent, and dependent Indian labor. If they were seeking quality they would sponsor Europeans. They don’t because they’re even more expensive than Americans and likely to job hop. How many Swiss does Microsoft sponsor through H1B?

  9. this is slightly off-topic but are the clintons an example of “brain drain”. Bill is from Arkansas initially and Chelsea lived there until her teenage years. Yet Chelsea’s daughter will have no experience of living in Arkansas and will probably have a background solely in the acela corridor.

    This is obviously anecdotal but if you have a bunch of high achieving people from those places leaving the state upon adulthood – then it can add up to a decline in social capital.

    • Yes, I’ve said this before. It’s the same with flyover country. I see all these smart and ambitious people leave places like Kansas for places such as Park Slope, Brooklyn with other SWPL types. They hate their former towns, which are like ghost towns, boring and prole.

    • Mostly OT

      Just got back from an Anytime Fitness franchise in a suburban town in Texas. There was a middle-aged chubby blonde prole woman accompanied by her daughter, also chubby prole, probably about 20 y/o, hanging out by the machines. Both of them were wearing black spandex pants.

      Pudgy Mexican-American man next to me on the exercise bike. Couple days of scruff, wearing red basketball shorts and a red T-shirt.

      Two pretty buff dudes, one more SWPL (cleanshaven, neatly parted hair, designer-ish gym clothes), one prole in appearance (with a backwards hat and a beard.) Using the heavy weights, not the machines. The SWPL dude works at the gym, he moved here from California with his parents. I have met a lot of people in this town who moved here from CA.

      Retired guy wearing a t-shirt with the sleeves cut off walked in near the time when I was leaving. He paused to flirt with the prole woman cleaning up the place.

      45 y/o blonde prole woman with a blonde ponytail vacuuming and washing the windows. Ironically she was thin and fit in better shape than most of the other people there.

      • It’s ironic that a woman who works at a gym is fit?

      • The woman was a cleaning lady, not a fitness employee.

        The irony was that she, wearing jeans and pushing a vacuum, was clearly healthier than the fat prole spandex wearing woman of the same age whose membership fee paid the other’s minimum wage job.

      • “I always found it funny, how people at gyms almost always park as close as possible to the door.”

        I agree there’s a certain irony about it, but consider that people join gyms so that they can do a specific workout in a controlled environment

  10. Much as I dislike George W. Bush, I find it hard to believe his daughters are anywhere nearly as bitchy as Chelsea.

    • In my opinion a daughter’s behaviour is primarily influenced by her mother. Laura Bush, although I don’t know her, appears very pleasant and down-to-earth. Hillary on the other hand…

  11. Ronald Kessler’s book about the secret service and the first families says: “Ironically, while Hillary is the protectee from hell, agents have nothing but praise for her daughter, Chelsea”.

  12. Attractiveness is not just what a person’s face looks like in media. It also includes face with no makeup on it, body scent, breast size and shape, waist to hip ration, shape of buttocks, shape of genitalia, hairiness. Even though the face does not look overly attractive, she might have more points on the other things. She got married after all, so she must be not pathologically repulsive. Do I find her attractive based on what I know? Not really. All my girlfriends looked much better, except for one.
