Miss Ball channeled well the Clintonian mindset that Hillary, her followers, and her harlots in the press suffer.
From Molly Ball:
What had she been through over the past year and a half—what had America been through? She had prepared for a normal campaign, prepared for something like 2012, a boring slog against a sane and decent regular Republican whom she would strain to argue was Wrong On The Issues. Instead she got a hair-on-fire carnival ride, a Russian spy thriller, a national nervous breakdown of an election.
Every day she got up and recited the same jokes and exhortations, and every day the hackers released more of her advisers’ private communications onto the Internet, and every day her improbable opponent, a sort of primal scream in human form, waved his arms and called her a criminal.
She had piles and piles of proposals—to rightsize the prisons and roll back deportations and pay for child care and on and on—and then it turned out the election wasn’t about any of that. It was about trying to be as inconspicuous as possible and waiting for the fire to burn out. It was about being slightly less of a monster. Even then, about half of America looked at her and was not convinced.The spin is that the latest scandal is nothing. Not fair! WikiLeaks released private communications -- Private Communications -- PRIVATE COMMUNICATIONS.
Yes, just like Billy Bush and Trump talking eleven years ago.
Or Sarah Palin's 24,000 emails that the press went to court to force her to hand over, only to discover what she said was in them all along -- nothing.
Dammit you dumbass Americans, don't you understand all the great plans she had to make your miserable, rotten lives better?
She was going to rightsize prisons.
Now you won't get that. Or day care. Or sunshine. Or lollipops. Or rainbows.
Instead you get Orange Julius -- the Cheeto Benito -- the Despot of Queens.
Why didn't you listen to your moral and intellectual superiors, you uneducated white rednecks? They know what is best for you racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic, simple-minded, deplorable dregs of society.
Now it is springtime for Donald -- winter for social justice, and France.
From Molly Ball:
“I want you to vote for yourselves, and for your families, and for your hope for our future together,” she said, pacing the stage with wide eyes and a severe expression, and launching into another six-point list of all the issues she planned to tackle. “I believe with all of my heart that we will, after this election, get together to help heal the divides that have sprung up and are so painful among us.”
It didn’t matter if she believed it, or if anyone did. What mattered was that she was going to win—wasn’t she?—and the rest could wait.Then WikiLeaks broke.
Everything that came out seemed to confirm the worst suspicions.
Her paranoid opponents said she was a part of the elite globalist cabal secretly plotting to impose one-world government by surrendering national sovereignty. And there she was, according to emails between her advisers hacked and released by WikiLeaks, telling a Brazilian bank in 2013, “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.” She was paid $225,000 for the speech. (The campaign has not confirmed that the emails from the account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta are authentic, but many of them have been corroborated by third parties.)But that was a private communication -- Private Communication -- PRIVATE COMMUNICATION.
Now there is this second damned scandal about emails. Weiner won't fall on his sword for the Clintons like Susan MacDougal. Maybe having Huma Abedin dump him was too clever by half. It's now Weiner take all.
You blew it, America.
From Miss Ball:
The people who believe in Clinton are naive enough to think she might actually make things better.
“I hope she will be able to negotiate with Republicans to get things done,” Jed Shugerman, a law professor from Massachusetts, told me at the New Hampshire rally. “Even though Republicans have railed against her, I think she has the ability to work across party lines. And if it’s a Democratic landslide, the GOP might be more willing to compromise.”
I asked them why they thought she could break the gridlock in Washington, unlike President Obama. “I think her approach is going to be more no-nonsense,” Paul Leone, a 56-year old software developer, told me in Raleigh, N.C. “She knows the difficulties he’s had with bipartisanship. Maybe she’ll be more forceful and get better results.”If you believe Barack "I Will Trump You On That" Obama is bipartisan, I have got some sad news for you. That Nigerian prince who wants you to launder money? He's a scam artist. You'll never see that $3,000 money order again.
But Bipartisan Barry is what Hillary and her cronies believe. That is their reality. So is a belief that she can save this rotten nation founded by genocidal slave-owning white men.
The piece ends at the University of Pennsylvania where Tim Kaine tells the audience: “There’s a momentum that’s happening in this race. Americans are choosing the kind of country they want for their children and grandchildren!”
Yes. And that choice is Donald Trump.
