"[I]ncredibly articulate and human... charmingly personal while at the same time substantively deep."

Who can it be?!

Like Obama she's been told all her life how great she is and is following a path that doesn't seem to require that she prove it.

I'd suggest ad pitchman for a cigar company.

Paris Hilton?

Seems like the line a few years ago was that she was going to be an investment banker. Doing the big deals. With the big players.

It would be interesting to look back and track what her PR people said about her over the years.

"Incredibly shallow and phony. Able to spew cliches from a deep reservoir."

"[I]ncredibly articulate and human... charmingly personal while at the same time substantively deep."

My guess was Elie Wiesel.

Humperdink said...

My initial guess was DerSchlickmeister himself. Especially the "charmingly personal ... substantially deep" part.

I wonder how they would know? Isn't she still off limits for questioning?

We're being built up for the next inevitable nominee.

Chelsea Hubble Clinton?

I think Bill and Chill were planning to do the the Kennedy thing. All the progeny would go into politics to save the planet. They suspended operations after one.

Didn't even know she was still on TV.

I am willing to cut her, personally, a little slack, as she grew up under a microscope as a bridge between two parents. Horrible place to be put.

I am not willing to consider her journalistic skills in any way viable, however.

She's a pretend journalist? ANd yet all the media (which is pretty much 90%) pitching softballs to Obama for 4 years was "REAL" journalism?

Maybe she can interview her mom about Benghazi

I won't look at the link but it has to be Nene Leakes.

The Palin kid had a more blue collar approach to being a celebrity. It was a skill to be mastered and learned, and you start at the bottom. Chelsea was there to be annointed and not to get all sweaty in pursuit of fame. Well, her parents are worth over a hundred million dollars, and she's the sole heir. If I were her I would do nothing but study actuarial tables and sleep late....I wonder who gets more fucked up with living in the shadow of famous parents: boys or girls?

"charmingly personal while at the same time substantively deep.”

What does that even mean? You can't be both personal and deep unless you are something extraordinary? Deep what? What is she substantive about? Isn't everyone substantive? Or deep? Or charming? Or personal? But not all at the same time?

Or, as I suspect, it's a bunch of bullshit trying to look smart. I love intellectuals. They probably mean she's chatty and appears to be empty headed.

And there I thought it was going to be Bashar al-Assad's wife again.

Garage Mahal?

Substantially deep is how far down one has to go to find a glimmer of intelligence.

I'll never forget a picture taken right after the Monica story broke. Bill and Hillary walking from Marine one, each holding one of Chelsea's hands. Bill gazing down, Hillary looking off into the distance (appearing cold and pissed off)
Chelsea was a freshman in college at the time, having to hold the hands of her parents for crying out loud. She was just a prop for her parents and had probably been used to buffer many a fight. I notice the Obama's doing the same with their girls, each holding their hands well beyond the age it's normal to do so.

I don't remember the Bush's doing that with their girls. What a freaking farce.

The vomitorium will be seeing a lot of action today and tomorrow.

This series of unmoored descriptors could be for any favored individual. Words strung together to support a brand of intellectual caring person. TM.

(No mention of Kierkegaard pet. Too much. Save for later.)

Remember when Obama was described as "articulate" and everyone was all "how dare you - are you saying black people aren't articulate"? Yeah, whatever. Chelsea should say, "how dare you - are you saying Clintons aren't human"?

Don't think too deeply about these descriptors. They're probably not true.

"Articulate" means you express your thoughts well with words. Obama reads his words off a prompter but he projects an image that people find compelling. That's not "articulate," that's something else. (Blank Slate, Empty Suit, Santa Claws/Clause.)What does Chelsea have to articulate? Who knows, the substance, ironically, is not important, it's the idea of articulateness.

Image is everything. Words are just a part of the image.
