Of Course Hillary is Playing the “Woman Card”

It usually blows my mind into infinite, disgusting little pieces when political correctness seizes hold of reality and claims it for itself. Which means, of course, every single day. Surprised I can still write.

Donald Trump is being pilloried for suggesting Hillary Clinton would not have 5 percent of the vote were she not a woman. “The only thing she’s got going is the women’s card,” he said Tuesday.

Thursday, instead of backing down, he escalating the matter. “Without the women’s card, Hillary would not even be a viable person to run for city council positions,” he said on the Today show.

This, apparently, is insulting to all women everywhere.

“Do you understand why people find that to be kind of a demeaning comment?” Today host Savannah Guthrie asked.

I do not understand. I know she wasn’t asking me, but I do not. In the real world, where most voters live, the prospect of having the first woman, African American, Hispanic, Jew, Croatian – you name it – as president is an appealing thing to some. And no doubt part of Hillary’s support is based on her sex. And no doubt, as Trump said, it’s hard to figure out what the accomplishments are that qualify Hillary to be president.

Name one, quick!

Now name a foreign policy failure during the Obama presidency.

Not as hard to do, is it?

What’s particularly disturbing is that Clinton herself is making the case for her candidacy based on being a woman, and she doesn’t get called on it.

Remember this? Here, she not only touts herself as the first woman running for president, she suggests that because she is a woman, ipso facto, she cannot possibly be part of the establishment. So she is either unaware of the gains women have made in the past 50 years or she thinks the ladies are too tender to play with the big boys.

Well, look, I’ve got to just jump in here because, honestly, Sen. Sanders is the only person who I think would characterize me, a woman running to be the first woman president, as exemplifying the establishment. And I’ve got to tell you that it is … It is really quite amusing to me.

Maybe Guthrie should ask Hillary next time she’s on why she is insulting women in this manner.

Hillary: “We Have Just Too Many Guns . . . In Our Homes”

Do we really, Mrs. Clinton? And how are you going to get those guns out of our homes?

The problem is that there are too many guns in the hands of criminals. And therefore, there cannot be too many guns in our homes, safely and responsibly kept, of course. Because people have a right to defend themselves against the results of the economic, moral, and societal decay caused by liberal policies.

And what happens when the breakdown of the international order caused by the foreign policy of Hillary and President Obama brings ISIS, Iran, al Qeada, or someone else to our shores with assaults on the infrastructure – for example, an electromagnetic pulse attack. This, according to sober-minded people who have studied the issue, could cause short or even long-term chaos. Then how many guns in the home is too many?

Why Hillary is More Beatable by a Republican Than She Seems

You know all those polls you read about how Hillary beats Trump or Cruz and OMG Republicans are going to lose the election if there isn’t a White Knight at the convention and so forth. Heres why that’s all wrong.

Hillary favorable

Clinton is now at her lowest approval rating among Democrats since the beginning of the campaign. Twenty five points below where she was in August.

Hillary Clinton has the same problem Ted Kennedy used to have. She’s well liked among Democrats, until she starts to run for president.

She is a terrible campaigner. She is corrupt. She’s greedy. She is unlikable. She is probably guilty of a very serious crime. And Bernie has finally gone on the attack.

Hillary is a deeply flawed candidate. Once more people start paying attention during the general election campaign, those polls showing her ahead of Republicans or basically even with them will change. Republicans possibly should be even more worried about facing Sanders than Clinton.

Poll: Clinton, Sanders Even Nationally*

A Fox News poll out today puts Hillary Clinton ahead of Sen. Bernie Sanders by only 48-46 percent, a two-point lead that is within the poll’s margin of error.

It’s very difficult for Sanders to overcome the delegate math that is now stacked against him. But a loss for Clinton in New York will raise serious questions about her electability which, coupled with the FBI investigation, could give Democratic Super Delegates pause about supporting her and grant him a fighting chance for the nomination.

Meantime, the “civility” in their race was trashed for good as the two engaged in a raucous rumble in Thursday night’s debate. Nice that they put the lecterns close enough that they practically started slapping each other.

*Correction: This story originally said Clinton and Sanders were even in New York. My sincere apologies.

Hillary: Sanders’ Mindless Youth

Uh oh. Hillary condescends to be the young people who are backing Sanders, suggesting they are just letting their exuberance get the best of their brains. Bad idea. “I think it’s exciting to be, in effect, protesting,” Hillary said of Bernie’s youthful backers. “I totally get the attraction of this.” But don’t all Democrats ultimately… Continue Reading

Hillary Wants Former Aide Stephanopoulos to Moderate Debate

Sometimes, pure cynicism is just hilarious. Hillary Clinton wants to have George Stephanapoulos, who worked for Bill Clinton and has contributed to the Clinton Foundation, to moderate a debate between her and Bernie Sanders. The Dems are looking to do as many as three debates. Maybe they could have Sidney Blumenthal moderate a second debate,… Continue Reading

Heileman: Clinton Does Not Have a Lock On New York

John Heileman, the respected Bloomberg political editor, saying Hillary could lose New York. This would be a huge loss. Maybe Bernie does have a chance. Not sure which of those two scares me more. Probably Sanders, as unlikeable as Hillary is. Because he really will restrict freedom to enact his extremist agenda. At least Hillary… Continue Reading
