If You Think YOU Hate Hillary Clinton, Try Working For Her

I always like it when I read a story about bad things happening to State Department employees. I suppose it’s petty of me, but I’m a petty kind of guy. This time, though, I actually feel a bit sorry for those people. They went through something even worse than what they put me through. They had to deal with Hillary.

Daniel Halper, NY Post:

State Department security personnel so disliked Hillary Clinton that many left the agency or asked to be reassigned, according to FBI documents released Monday…

“[Redacted] explained that CLINTON’s treatment of DS agents on her protective detail was so contemptuous that many of them sought reassignment or employment elsewhere,” the FBI documents state.

“Prior to CLINTON’s tenure, being an agent on the Secretary of State’s protective detail was seen as an honor and privilege reserved for senior agents. However, by the end of CLINTON’s tenure, it was staffed largely with new agents because it was difficult to find senior agents willing to work for her,” the interview summary states.

Well, why would they? She’s a horrible person, as is obvious to anyone who’s ever paid the slightest attention to her. Imagine being on a career track to move up in the organization and protect the Secretary of State, hoping for Condi Rice or even Colin Powell… and then getting stuck with that shrew.

Sometimes I wonder if she was in the armored SUV that made an illegal left turn in Washington, DC that night in February 2010 and crippled me. And now I’m wondering something else: Was she distracting the agent who was driving by shrieking in his ear about whatever was enraging her at that particular moment? Was that the reason they tried to blame me for it?

Probably not, of course. Just idle musing. But maybe someday that State Dept. security agent will let me buy him a beer and we can talk about it. He’s probably not so bad, really. He was probably just trapped in a toxic work environment.
