Until Hillary Clinton spoke up yesterday, we Americans didn’t realize how many problems her thighness has solved for us.
When she answered Senator Rob Johnson (R-Wi) at the hearing on the Benghazi, Libya, attack about what really happened, she didn’t really give an answer. But she did get emotional, her voice elevated, when she said: “What difference at this point does it make?” She went on to say four Americans were dead, implying that trumped any questioning of her involvement in it, her lying about the source of it or when we would expect justice for it.
All around America you could see lights going on in peoples’ heads. Of course! Something young and old, man or woman, citizen or felon could use. Probably the kids were the first to appreciate its significance. Here’s what I mean.
It’s math class. A student hasn’t done his homework. The teacher asks for it and wants to know why the student doesn’t have it. Answer? “What difference at this point does it make? No, I don’t have it, so stop asking for it! We’re onto another section now.
Or a husband returns home late at night when he was supposed to be home for dinner. He merely says, “What difference at this point, does it make? I’m home, aren’t I?” See how that works? You move on.
Hungry family members assemble for breakfast before going to school and work. There isn’t any. Mom just says, “What difference at this point does it make? You’ll be late for school if I make it so just skip it and go on.” What else can they do?
A murder victim’s family awaits the trial of the suspect. The judge calls them over. “Your son is dead anyhow. It happened. If this guy did it, what difference at this point does it make? Let’s just let him go.” Lots of taxpayer money saved there, eh?
You’re at a department store and want to take home a dress you found. No money in the wallet. Just turn to the salesclerk and say “What difference at this point does it make? I’ll just take it home and pay you later.”
There is one hangup to this plan, however.
You shuffle off the mortal coil and find yourself in front of St. Peter. He takes you to God and God asks you why you did such and such. “I’m here now, what difference at this point does it make?”
I have a feeling it will make a big difference to the Big Guy. Hillary, Bill and Barack will not be able to squeeze their ways out of this one.
