Hillary Clinton and Ford Pinto

Hillary Clinton is the Ford Pinto of presidential politics. Hillary is a cynical old nincompoop with a fake smile ... who clings to her discredited Marxist political philosophy and never seems to be competent at anything. "What difference does it make?" that she is announcing that she is running for president today? None. The only person who is excited about her candidacy is herself.

Hillary Clinton is an old Ford Pinto. Ted Cruz is a Porsche Spyder 918

I might be odd, but I like to compare our presidential candidates to cars. On the Democrat side, there is only one official candidate, Hillary Clinton. Hillary is an old Ford Pinto. On the Republican side, Ted Cruz is a Porsche 918 Spyder. Rand Paul is a Porsche 911 Turbo S. Marco Rubio is a Ford Fusion. If Jeb Bush decides to run, he's a 2005 Pontiac Aztek.

F.A. Hayek on Knowledge

"The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design." -- F. A. Hayek
The Fatal Conceit: The Errors of Socialism
University of Chicago Press

What Hayek was referring to is the false assumption that someone like Hillary Clinton can know all there is to know about health care and other large organizations in society.  Hillary gives the pretense of knowing things that she clearly does not know, all in the hopes of getting the votes of low-information voters.
