Apparently Hillary Clinton’s campaign communications director, Jennifer Palmieri, felt that the former secretary of State could not handle the burden alone. Hillary Clinton couldn’t be the ONLY one out there on a world tour, telling Democrats, Republicans, women, men, and even sometimes Indians, that there were very good reasons for her election loss to Donald Trump – and that none of them had anything to do with her. And so Palmieri has written a new book with the unbelievably pretentious title: “Dear Madam President: An Open Letter to the Women Who Will Run the World.”
Put your boots on; it’s about to get deep in here.
To be fair (?), Palmieri has her own selfish reasons for concluding that the campaign Hillary ran bore no responsibility for the historic and unexpectedly crushing defeat. After all, along with Brian Fallon and John Podesta, she was one of the chief architects of that campaign. She isn’t going to go out there with a book titled, “We F**ked Up: How a Team of Incompetents Blew the 2016 Election.” Although we would damn sure be the first in line to buy such an honest account.
But that’s not the Clinton way, and it’s not the way of her acolytes.
So let’s have it, Jennifer: Why did Hillary lose?
“It does show that we don’t have any models for our young girls and young women who are coming up in the world now to look at for how to lead,” she said while out promoting the book.
NO role models for women and young girls. This is proven because Hillary didn’t win. You have to love the liberal style of thinking. If our desired result is not in evidence, the cause is ___ism. And of course, you see Democrats use this line of reasoning for everything from black crime rates to the percentage of women in the tech industry. Why WOULDN’T they use it to explain why Hillary Clinton is wandering in the woods rather than sitting in the Oval Office?
“I do believe we encountered an unconscious but pervasive gender bias that held Hillary back in many ways,” Palmieri said.
Please just stop.
For the last time, Hillary Clinton didn’t lose because she was a woman. If anything, the only reason she got within shouting distance of the White House IS BECAUSE SHE WAS A WOMAN. No other candidate could hope to run for office on such a bland, mishmash of nonsense, fail to inspire anyone, hopelessly become mired in scandal, and still win the popular vote.
If Hillary Clinton had been a man, she would have made it about as far as Martin O’Malley.
