Why do I loathe politicians? Part I.

Let me count the ways. Why can't Hillary just admit she was a reasonably well-off middle class white kid from the suburbs? There's nothing wrong with that.

I don't get it. It shouldn't be hard to say "I grew up fine, my parents were great, and I am proud of my hometown," as opposed to ginning up some artificial bucolic dream in which you had profound and moving experiences with the "other."

Anyhow, I guess I will start a serial posting on this issue.
