The right people

It doesn't matter whether or not you are actually accomplishing.  As long as you are one of the "right people", then the self-congratulatory log-rolling continues.  From NRO's The Corner:
Hillary Clinton is set to receive an award on Tuesday evening from the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) for her “legacy of leadership” in combating HIV/AIDS.

That may bit a bit awkward, given that, as secretary of state, Clinton riled AIDS activists by slashing the State Department’s programs for AIDS prevention and treatment.
Perhaps the true money quote from the story was by Jamar Rogers, who said:
“I love the president, I support him, but I really do think that it’s kind of a travesty that George W. Bush did more for AIDS/HIV research than Barack Obama,”
Not as much a travesty as the hypocrisy that liberal gay activists display.  George Bush does more to fight AIDS than any other president, but they line up like lapdogs to support frauds like Obama.

How can they look themselves in the mirror?
