Rob Reiner aka Meathead: Hillary Would Be ‘Most Qualified Person Ever to Run for President’

The media drumbeat for Hillary Clinton to be the next president is truly nauseating.
Consider Rob Reiner, aka Meathead in the famed sitcom All in the Family, saying on HBO’s Real Time Friday, “If she decides to run, you will have the single most qualified person ever to run for President of the United States” (video follows with commentary):
Now take a moment to consider the absurdity of that statement.
Because Hillary was senator for eight years and Secretary of State for four, she’s the most qualified person EVER to run for president of our country?
More qualified than George Washington who led our troops to victory against the British?
More qualified than Thomas Jefferson who wrote the Declaration of Independence?
More qualified than John Adams who was a pivotal figure in achieving our independence?
More qualified than Abraham Lincoln? And Franklin Delano Roosevelt? And Ronald Reagan?
Would any of these Hillary supporters be so gushing if she were a man with the exact same qualifications?
Of course not.
Much as these people championed Barack Obama despite his lack of qualifications, Hillary is the left’s current ideal not because of what she’s done, but for what she represents.
No wonder Archie Bunker referred to this idiot as Meathead.
