After a few months of walking around in the woods reflecting on and casting blame for her humiliating electoral loss to a reality television showman, Hillary Clinton returned to public life to do the only thing the Clintons know how to do: grub for money and collect political chits.
She announced she was now part of the “resistance” and was going to fight for “a kinder, big-hearted, inclusive America” through a new political action committee named Onward Together. Sort of like the one that exists within her reclusive, disdainful, condescending, privileged and closed circle, I’d imagine.
On its website, the PAC explains its purpose, and doesn’t omit the big “Donate” button:
Onward Together is dedicated to advancing the vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election. By encouraging people to organize, get involved, and run for office, Onward Together will advance progressive values and work to build a brighter future for generations to come.
Citizen engagement at every level is central to a strong and vibrant democracy. In recent months, we’ve seen what’s possible when people come together to resist bullying, hate, falsehoods, and divisiveness, and stand up for a fairer, more inclusive America.
From the Women’s March to airports where communities are welcoming immigrants and refugees to town hall meetings in every community, Americans are speaking up and speaking out like never before.
The challenges we face as a country are real. But there’s no telling what we can achieve if we approach the fights ahead with the passion and determination we feel today, and bring that energy into 2017, 2018, 2020, and beyond.
Now the Witch from Chappaqua has thrown her Onward PAC in with the Run For Something PAC, which has tasked itself with recruiting young progressives to run for offices in state legislatures and city governments in order to build “a progressive bench.”
Given the Clintons’ history it’s likely that most of the money raised by SHillary’s Onward PAC will find its way into the Clintons’ pockets or their Clinton Foundation money-laundering operation, with a little shelled out to select chosen candidates in order to collect enough political chits for another presidential run by the witch or, heaven forfend, Chelsea.
