When I think of Hillary Clinton, I do not normally think, “fun.” Turns out, the feeling is mutual.
This afternoon, speaking to the American Camp Association New York and New Jersey Tri-State CAMP Conference, she suggested that, since America has been so down in the dumps lately, with all this nonsense about emails and Iranians getting the bomb, maybe what we really need to address is our “fun deficit.” And she knows precisely how to do it.
Hillary Clinton would love to see sleepaway camps for adults and more relationship-building in Washington, she said Thursday at what will likely be her final paid appearance before launching her expected presidential campaign.
“We really need camps for adults,” the former secretary of state told the American Camp Association of New York and New Jersey’s Tri-State CAMP Conference. “None of the serious stuff … I think we have a fun deficit in America.”
In an hour on stage, Clinton mixed recollections of her own childhood with some discussion of her path forward. As she has hinted, it would include a focus on finding consensus across party lines.
Frankly, this might be the worst idea she’s ever had, and she had a comprehensive health care overhaul that suspiciously mirrors Obamacare. There’s a reason I never went to camp. I hated the kids I went to school with. The last thing I wanted to do is be trapped with them in the wildnerness for weeks at a time. It’s no wonder so many horror movies are set at summer camps; regardless of the morality lesson that certain chainsaw killers were trying to teach the young residents of Camp Crystal Lake, being in close proximity with that many idiots could drive anyone into a murderous rage.
That said, forcing our elected officials to spend quality time together in matching tee shirts, playing Capture the Flag, can’t possibly have negative consequences.
