The Hillary narrative continues….

A few days ago the NY Times published a scheming, manipulative photo of Hillary. Today Media Matters reports that Chris Matthews, in response to a question about Hillary, said…

“So does her attack on him [Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL)] for having had ambition as a teeny-bopper — not a teeny-bopper, a kindergartner, does she look like Nurse Ratched here?” This is not the first time Matthews has referenced Nurse Mildred Ratched, a character in Ken Kesey’s novel and in the movie based on the novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, when discussing Clinton. In fact, a Media Matters for America Nexis search found that hosts, including Matthews, and guests of programs on NBC, MSNBC, and CNBC have a long history of associating Clinton with Kesey’s fictional character, whom Cliff’s Notes describes as a “scheming, manipulative agent” who “asserts arbitrary control simply because she can.”

“Scheming, manipulative agent who asserts arbitrary control”……hmmmmm. Nurse Ratched: yes. Hillary Clinton: maybe. Anyone else come to mind???? Anyone?
