Honey, Miz Hillary was in South Carolina yestiddy droppin’ her g’s and tryin’ to sound southren.

She was a mite offensive to us benighted folks what actually know how to talk southren.

And she managed to hit a new low in the ongoing trivialization of American politics. Mrs. Clinton predicted she won’t grow gray in the White House:

While speaking to a group of supporters in South Carolina, Clinton declared that she’s “been coloring” her “hair for years” and, because of that: “You’re not going to see me turn white in the White House.” [ABC newsman David] Muir concluded by simply reiterating that this was Clinton’s “prediction tonight.”

Tell me, Dear Movement Feminists Friends, is this woman not goin' to set you back at least couple of decades?

Meanwhile, another candidate, Carly Fiorina, a long shot for the GOP nomination, was also in South Carolina yesterday. She talked issues with Andrea Mitchell, hardly a friend of the Republican Party, and acquitted herself well. Everybody is talkin’ about Carly’s performance yesterday. A transcript is available (scroll down).

I heard a lot of people talking at a reception last night about Fiorina’s quick and specific response to a question on what she’d do about ISIS:

I would do very specific things. First, instead of having a Camp David conference to talk our Arab allies into a bad deal with Iran, I would have had a Camp David conference to talk with our Arab allies about how we can support them to fight ISIS.

Let me give you very specific examples. The Kurds have been asking us to arm them for three years, we still have not. The Jordanians have been asking us to provide them with bombs and materiel. We know King Abdullah of Jordan, I’ve known him for many years, he took the appropriate leadership steps when a Jordanian pilot was burned alive. He was here in this country asking us for bombs and materiel, we haven't provided him with any of them. He's now looking to China for that. The Egyptian president, a very brave and pious Muslim, who has said there's a cancer in the heart of Islam, has asked us to share intelligence. We are not. The Turks have asked us to help them topple Bashar al-Assad, we are not. There are a whole set of things that we've been asked to do by our allies who know this is their fight and we're not doing any of them. So I would hold a summit and talk with them about that.

On equal pay (one of Clinton's foremost issues):

Of course I support equal pay for equal work. And that's why in 1963 when a law was passed guaranteeing that, if a woman is being discriminated against in the workforce purely because of her gender she should take every advantage of the law.

But I also know this, a seniority system which exists in federal government that allows a man to watch pornography all day long in the federal government and earn the same pay, pension, and benefits as a woman sitting next to him trying to do a good job, that is not equal pay for equal work. And the seniority system in the federal government that promotes that seniority system, and the unions as well, they're not willing to talk about that.

So before federal government or Hillary Clinton – who by her own measures is not paying women equally in her own office, nor is President Obama – before they lecture others, maybe they ought to look into their own offices or look into the seniority system in the federal government.

And comparing her achievements to Mrs. Clinton’s:

You know, it's interesting. I come from a world where titles are just titles and talk is just talk. You know, it's only in politics where titles and words mean a lot. In the rest of the world, it's actually about, “What have you done?” Actions speak louder than words. People want to know are your words and your actions consistent and are they consistent over time?

And so, I think when 82% of the American people now believe that there is a professional political class more interested in preserving its own power and privilege than it is in serving the American people, people expect basic questions to be asked of anyone running for president. “What have you done? Are you trustworthy? Are you transparent? Will you answer questions?”

No word yet on whether Ms. Fiorina colors her hair.
