Self-proclaimed feminist bisexual egomaniac and general blowhard Camille Paglia tries to dismantle Hillary Clinton in her Salon column today and mostly ends up contradicting herself. She disses Hillary's media persona, calling her debate tone a "tight-wound, self-righteous attack voice," but then also criticizes Hillary for not being strong enough. "Women had better toughen up if they aspire to be commander in chief," Camille writes. So which is it? Is Hillary too wussy, or is she too aggressive? It seems that Camille thinks Hillary should be more like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who she describes as "simple, centered and warm." Or maybe more like Hillary's top aide, Huma Abedin, who gets praise from Paglia for being "stylish" and wielding a designer handbag. (Didn't Camille hear? That handbag is a fake!)
