Good people can’t understand how truly bad a bad person can be. Good people are good, but they’re also a little bit stupid. - Jon Roberts (nee John Riccobono)
The first thought of anyone reading Roger Stone and Robert Morrow’s blockbuster, The Clintons’ War on Women (309 customer reviews on Amazon.com currently), with anything approaching an open mind is likely to be, “How is it possible that a person of Hillary Clinton’s known sordid history could ever be seriously considered as a candidate for president?” What the authors amply and convincingly lay out and document throughout their book is what they call, “The Clintons’ lifelong history of lying and violating the law, seemingly without consequence or punishment.”
Rather than being punished for their criminal behavior, in fact, the Clintons have been rewarded with enormous wealth and political success. The authors attempt to explain what has happened with the term “elite deviance.”
Elite deviance is an anomaly in which a tiny few people who have enough material wealth, political influence, and personal connections can immunize themselves from considering the consequences of their most abhorrent, destructive, vile, and even criminal behavior. This describes the Clintons perfectly.
