Democrats Dodged A Bullet
The following article appeared in Wizbang on May 25th
Democrats dodged a bullet when Donald Trump won the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.
If Democrats think that Trump has a huge ego, then they haven’t taken a close look at Hillary Clinton’s ego.
“No, I’m not over it. I still think about the 2016 election.” That is what Clinton told Yale’s 2018 graduating class.
“I’m trying to remember a failed presidential candidate before now who made a second career out of whining about losing an election. Sure, Al Gore cried into his Hostess snack cakes for a while after his devastating loss, but then he found much greater success by appointing himself President of the Environment. John Kerry managed to weasel his way into an office for which he was even less suited than his predecessor. John McCain went back to the Senate. And Mitt Romney has had to settle for being incredibly rich and absolutely right about everything he said during the 2012 campaign.
They all moved on with their lives. They all stopped mewling like a baby who didn’t get a cookie before bed. But not Hillary Clinton. The first female major party candidate is also the first to make a job out of losing. She still hasn’t forgiven you, America, for rejecting her.”
Even if you don’t agree with Treacher’s opinion about Gore, Kerry, McCain and Romney, he is spot on about Clinton. Thus, it is fitting that Treacher’s commentary starts with the following image:
The last time I saw a mouth like that, it had a hook in it.
Anyway, Clinton’s complaint isn’t that Trump won, or that a Republican won, or that a Democrat lost, or that a woman lost. Clinton’s complaint is that she lost. Clinton considers herself entitled to the Presidency. There just isn’t enough cheese in the world to go with Clinton’s whine.
Again I am glad that Clinton lost. Show me a person who believes that I wanted Clinton to win, and I’ll show you a person with more loose screws than a hardware store in an earthquake.
