“Many people have lost many races at many different levels. I’m just not sure we’ve ever seen such public bellyaching about it.”

When Hillary Clinton lost the presidency, I was relieved the nation was spared the leftist agenda she would have implemented. It never dawned on me that almost as painful would be her incessant complaining and finger-pointing about why she lost. Have we ever seen anything like it?
Many people have lost many races at many different levels. I’m just not sure we’ve ever seen such public bellyaching about it. Usually, someone loses and graciously takes responsibility for it and moves on — at least in public. Clinton, however, has opted to blame the media, James Comey, the DNC, Donald Trump, deplorables, sexism, fake news and, of course, Russia. I’m sure I’m leaving something and someone out, so let’s just say there’s nothing and no one she has either not blamed or will not eventually blame as she goes down her list.
Mrs. Clinton, I imagine, would have taken credit had she won, but she hasn’t quite figured out how to handle her loss.
Her inability to do so with grace is not something we see a lot. It doesn’t even seem normal. No matter how the loser really feels, losing gracefully is a respected — expected — art. Giving your opponent credit for a well-fought battle is what you do. Pointing out your own weaknesses is fitting. And you get brownie points for self-deprecation. You just don’t generally see what Clinton is exhibiting. Perhaps that’s because we’ve never seen anyone who felt so entitled before.
I hope Hillary Clinton gets a grip on reality soon, though I acknowledge she may need a little help getting there. Might I suggest a helping of fresh, hot, creamy covfefe? I hear it works wonders in the midnight hours. (Read More)
