Now that’s saying a lot, isn’t it? The worst people in politics. It’s like being the smelliest shit in the sewer.
Hillary — and I assume Bill’s — decision to try to challenge the election result is what one only hopes is the final depraved moment in a long history of Clinton political depravity.
Even Richard Nixon didn’t do this. In 1960, the exalted Jack Kennedy probably stole Illinois from Nixon. And Lyndon Johnson, another depraved Democratic hero, may have stolen Texas. The two states combined would have given Nixon the presidency.
Nixon believed that Kennedy had won the presidency illicitly, but he chose not to put the country through the trauma of a challenge. It was one of the, well, most un-Nixonian things any policitican has ever done. But it came from an era when there was a sense of putting country above self.
This is not how the Clintons, and Democrats generally, think. Theirs is much more the Leninist model of believing their cause so sacrosanct and so obviously infallible that nothing can stand in the way of gaining power.
Democracy requires the acknowledgement that one just might be wrong. But not for Democrats anymore.
Hypocrisy and fake sentiment are part of the ends-justifiies-the-means approach we see among many Democrats. Just witness the passion Hillary put into her response during the final debate, when Donald Trump said he might not accept the election results.
“That’s horrifying,” Clinton said.
Afterward, she lectured: “To say you won’t respect the results of the election, that is a direct threat to our democracy.”
So who is threatening democracy now?
If, for some reason, a “recount” determined that Hillary Clinton was the winner, there could be some serious violence in this country. Because who is to say what was rigged, the count, or the recount?
Fortunately, that’s not going to happen.
Hillary’s proper stance with respect to Jill Stein’s challenge to the election result was to say she would have no part in it. Instead, she joined in it.
Because that’s the kind of thing that amoral, corrupt people do.
