To activist Republicans and conservatives, she is a heroine. She is Joan of Arc. ~Jay Nordlinger

These people are aware of how things worked out for Joan of Arc, aren’t they?  It might be considered a tremendous compliment to be compared to such a martyr (even if it is a French one in this case), but I’m pretty sure that politicians do not aspire to being likened to those who were captured and burned at the stake by their enemies.
