What is notable to me is that the Hillary haters-on both the Left and Right-can’t quit her. They have to dance on her grave. They demand that we Democrats forget her and don’t even allow her a tombstone.
Conservative Grant Starreet is not content that there is a new Hillary bashing book-that in the preface says will give pleasure to Hillary haters. No, in Starrett’s ‘expert opinion’ Hillary doesn’t deserve a book at all-even one that basically laughs and points.
“Loser” is perhaps President Trump’s favorite insult and, all things considered, the best alternative title for Shattered, a new book that takes readers “inside Hillary Clinton’s doomed campaign.” The work reveals the dysfunction of Hillary’s leadership team and how they adopted a fatal strategy of identity politics, but it fails to draw practically any comparison to her Republican rival on qualitative or quantitative measures.”
Trump has certainly shown us what a ‘winner’ looks like as his first 100 days have been the worst since William Henry Harrison-who died in Office after just 31 days.
The very nasty nature of Hillary haters is shown how even now they begrudge this woman any recognition or peace of mind.
“Some may argue that the race was Hillary’s to lose, but this book feels woefully incomplete without further discussion of Donald Trump. In fact, more time is spent describing the elaborate ways in which Hillary spokesman Philippe Reines impersonated Trump during debate preparation than on Trump himself.”
“All the more because Hillary outspent Trump by a margin of more than two to one, Trump deserves credit for the victory that he achieved, including penetrating the supposedly rock-solid Blue Wall. True, no non-incumbent Democrat has succeeded a two-term president of the same party since Martin Van Buren. But Trump achieved something truly special and it barely makes a cameo in Shattered as the campaign staff share bewilderment on Election Night that rural areas like Florida’s Polk County would see Hillary outperform Obama by 3,000 votes while Trump outperformed Romney by 25,000. That’s a story that the book should have told.”
In a way, Starrett through his petty pique contradicts himself. He claims that Hillary is this awful candidate who had an awful campaign. But now he’s saying she lost because Trump is some sort of genius.
It’s notable that so many conservatives have had to scratch the itch to kick her when she’s down.
Here is Fox News Maven A.B. Stoddard:
“Dems, Tell Hillary to Go Back to the Woods.”
First of all, why would Democrats take advice from a GOP shill from Fox News like her anyway? She might want to tell her party to heal itself. Yesterday, Bill O’Reilly was sacked with a very generous parachute, it’s true. O’Reilly really became a ‘factor’ by declaring pious moral outrage over Bill’s affair with Monica Lewinsky.
Maybe Ms. Stoddard might want to heal her on party and network. Then she sinks into rank hypocrisy-which is the lifeblood of the modern Republican party:
“According to the book, the woman who feigned to know little about the mechanics of her private, unsecured email server — where she stowed government records vulnerable to attack from our enemies — actually knows a lot about email servers. It turns out Clinton spied on her 2008 campaign staff after losing to Obama by having an aide access the server and download all staff emails so she could determine who she could blame for her loss. “She believed her campaign failed her — not the other way around — and she wanted to ‘see who was talking to who, who was leaking to who,’ said a source familiar with the operation,” the book reveals.”
Ok. How much does Mike Pence know about email servers? His private email was hacked in Indiana just as he was effecting pious outrage over HRC.
“Democrats don’t owe Clinton anything and no longer need to fear the Clintons. They should keep her rehabilitation journey as far away from their own as possible. Lucky for her, President Trump no longer wants to lock her up, but it’s high time the Democrats lock her out.”
None of this makes any sense. If Democrats hurt themselves by not ‘locking her out’ then Stoddard-a Fox News Republican-should celebrate that. And if Trump could ‘lock her up’ he should also lock up his WH staff all who still use that same RNC private server that Karl Rove lost the 20 million emails on back in 2006.
Meanwhile, Stoddard lectures Democrats that Bernie is the future. Sure, that’s why he got just 43% of the vote and lost by 4 million.
This Hillary Derangement Syndrome, which knows no bounds is also on the Left. TruthDig linked to this anti Hillary screed by Anthony Sullivan:
“I’ve done what I could in this space to avoid the subject of Hillary Clinton. I don’t want to be the perennial turd in the punchbowl. I’d hoped we’d finally seen the last of that name in public life — it’s been a long quarter of a century — and that we could all move on. Alas, no. Her daughter (angels and ministers of grace defend us) seems to be positioning herself for a political career. And Clinton herself duly emerged last week for a fawning, rapturous reception at the Women in the World conference in New York City. It simply amazes me the hold this family still has on the Democratic Party — and on liberals in general. The most popular question that came from interviewer Nick Kristof’s social-media outreach, for example, was: “Are you doing okay?” Here’s Michelle Goldberg: “I find myself wondering at odd times of the day and night: How is Hillary? Is she going to be all right?” Seriously, can you imagine anyone wondering the same after Walter Mondale or Michael Dukakis or John Kerry blew elections?
John Kerry wasn’t burned in effigy. I mean we didn’t quite have the memory of him that we do of Hillary-who’d been in national politics for 25 years. But I did think Kerry deserved better. And he wasn’t buried in a deep, dark grave, never to be heard from again. He became Obama’s Secretary of State.
I too hope Hilary is ok. Like millions of her fans and supporters I will always be #WithHer. Like Peter Daou says:

Amen. I hope she gets a bigger public role. One idea I think would be great for her-to become a voting rights advocate-as she also lost because of voter suppression.
Having her tour the country and speaking out for voting rights would drive Trump and the other Hillary haters crazy. Maybe her and Al Gore also tour the country advocating against the electoral college.
P.S. As we saw in my poll out last week, the long awaited poll results are in, and right now I’m just 11 points down vs. Peter King (GOP-NY-District 2). And the voters don’t even know who I am yet.
There is nothing more important in getting answers to Trump-Russia collusion than a Democratic House in 2019. Please donate to help me in my part of the effort to fight for a Dem House.
Thank you. We must have a Dem House. And so, we will.
