Good morning Widdershins. Welcome to the week that should have happened eight years ago. Did you think it was going to be an easy week?
Hillary has had to fight every step of the way. This week will be no different.
Lazy people who call themselves journalists are in full-tilt false equivalency mode. Here’s the way it works – they have to be meaner to Hillary to prove they are fair because last week’s RNC was such an unmitigated crapfest. Even though the RNC couldn’t stick a finger in their butts with the help of a Hellfire missile fired from a sexually ambiguous Predator drone, the faux journalists have to even up the fight to ensure ratings.
Folks, this week is going to be difficult for us. Case in point: The last 24-hours. The rollout of Tim Kaine was near perfect (I subtracted a half-point for the oversized red and white stripes as a background). Tim Kaine was excellent. Hillary was as happy as I’ve ever seen her. It was the opposite of the reenactment of, “The Man Who Knew Too Little,” by the Yam and Nonsense Pence last week.
The lazy forlornalists have to create a narrative. They jumped on a few emails in tens of thousands released by alleged rapist and pigment-challenged Julian Assange courtesy of proven liar and Putin playmate Guccifer 2.0.
I’m not going to get into the issue beyond this: If someone attacks an organization, it doesn’t sit well with the natives. BerningBum, a Democrat by contrivance for about 30 seconds, had attacked the DNC, DWS, and senior staff members. He attacked them to deflect attention from his own unethical and illegal behavior. As with any organism, a foreign object is always attacked by a body’s defenses. Emails were written. Venting took place. It happens in every organization.
It turned a “nothing burger” into a “thing,” but like the seasoned leader she is, Hillary dealt with it. She didn’t spend 36 hours denying it like Manafort did with the plagiarism. She worked the problem.
What was different from the way Hillary handled it? Unlike Obama, she doesn’t use people as fodder for bus speed bumps. Hillary is loyal to her friends. She created a title for DWS. Hillary honored the loyalty of DWS.
So this is just the first of much brouhaha for the week. Hillary faced it. Overcame it. Bested the ninnies. There will be more.
Remember this – Hillary never stops. Think about getting up and facing what she has faced for at least 25 years. Think about what we faced eight years ago. We were called “dead-enders”. This is our week. I intend to enjoy every second of it.
I leave you with this: The Washington Post has declared Trump a “unique threat to American democracy.” They unequivocally said, “They will never endorse Trump.” Here is a bit of it:
The lack of experience might be overcome if Mr. Trump saw it as a handicap worth overcoming. But he displays no curiosity, reads no books and appears to believe he needs no advice. In fact, what makes Mr. Trump so unusual is his combination of extreme neediness and unbridled arrogance. He is desperate for affirmation but contemptuous of other views. He also is contemptuous of fact. Throughout the campaign, he has unspooled one lie after another — that Muslims in New Jersey celebrated after 9/11, that his tax-cut plan would not worsen the deficit, that he opposed the Iraq War before it started — and when confronted with contrary evidence, he simply repeats the lie. It is impossible to know whether he convinces himself of his own untruths or knows that he is wrong and does not care. It is also difficult to know which trait would be more frightening in a commander in chief.
That is the competition. It is clear the bombastic Circus Peanut is going to be graded on a curve. There’s nothing we can do to change that because “perfect self-confidence is reserved for the less talented as a consolation prize.”
What’s on your mind today?
