Who says Hillary Clinton is tired and out of ideas? Twitchy reports that Mrs. Clinton spoke to a group of camp counselors in Atlantic City, N.J., where she offered this proposal (quoted by CNN’s Jeff Zeleny): “We really need camps for adults. I think we have a huge fun deficit in America. We need to figure out how to fill that fun deficit.”
McClatchy’s Anita Kumar elaborated: “@HillaryClinton says adult camp would consist of red and blue cabins, but people would have to come together and listen to each other.” Maybe Starbucks could get the beverage concession.
The critics are raving, including Mark Hemingway of the Weekly Standard: “The fact that Hillary would talk about sending people to camps really speaks to her skill as a politician.”
