Inside the Clinton Sausage Factory

This devastating inside account of the Clinton campaign should be enough to scare any open-minded voter into thinking twice about installing Hillary Clinton in the West Wing.

In short: Her campaign is a total management clusterfuck, with competing cliques of seemingly unaccountable loyalists who excel at wasting money and ruling their fiefdoms by fiat and fear.

The top Clinton staffers come across as a uniquely unlikeable collection of toadies who all hate one another — and express that with frequent and public “fuck you’s”. That doesn’t even account for the distrusted and tellingly nicknamed “White Boys” loyal to former president Clinton who insinuate themselves into the process and yank of levers of power when things head south.

Look: Running a campaign of 1,000 people is a very reliable test of executive skill. For all of her years of experience and proximity to power, for all of her claims of being a hands-on COO, Hillary Clinton runs an unfathomably sloppy ship. One that can’t keep tabs on its finances. One that can’t keep its petty catfights out of the Washington Post.

Oh, and she can’t organize a simple caucus.

Caveat emptor.
