Looking For A Bright Side

Bill Merritt, over at Liberty Unbound takes a playful...ok... sarcastic look at the election from the viewpoint of Democrats:

"Never mind that the Democrat elite engineered the nomination of probably the only person in the country who could lose the presidency to a game-show host with a personality disorder . . . and outspend him two-to-one while doing it. Never mind that the same people saw to it that their party lost control of the House of Representatives for, maybe, ever; assured a conservative majority on the Supreme Court for what could be generations; ensured that their party would be denied power in most state houses and governorships, and be reduced to a level not seen since 1928. Never mind that they didn’t even notice they were losing. Never mind that they have set up the party itself for an internal catfight it might never recover from."

That first sentence is what cracks me up the most: Clinton losing to of all people, Trump. You just know that's totally humiliating for the self- centered egotistical beech that she is. I really do hope she's hating it. But not to worry, Hillary fans, I'm sure she'll be running for office again, although whether she'll feel comfortable running for president again amidst fears she'd be humiliated like this is hard to predict. I do feel she has a thirst for power that won't be quenched until she actually wins. We probably haven't heard the last of her. 

He then takes a look at one Democrat victory- the election of Catherine Masto to the U.S. Senate. They're looking at it as a win for diversity as Masto is considered latino in some circles. As Merrit points out:

 " She’s a third-generation American born right here in the good ole US of A. Never mind that this makes her practically Mayflower material, compared to Antonin Scalia. Never mind that she grew up in Nevada and graduated from Gonzaga, that her roots and her law degree, and her life experiences, pretty much clone those of almost every other member of the Senate. Never mind that the politically correct Democrat elite can’t even bring themselves to call her an American."

Funny that I have to admit I'd never heard of Masto until reading that article.

Let's give Bernie some praise for his wise choice. His supporters wanted him to run as an independent in the general election. Instead, he fully campaigned for Clinton for the general election.

If he hadn't, he would be a pariah everyone blamed for creating President Trump. But no, his status has risen, with calls for him to be the minority leader in the senate.

All blame resides with Clinton and the DNC. Clinton had everything going for her.

At the time Bernie was defeated (11.8 million to 15.5 million) in the primary, he was polling as more popular among likely voters (which includes Republicans) no matter how you sliced the numbers... Bernie vs. Trump, Bernie vs. Clinton, and Bernie vs. Trump and Clinton.

You might laugh at citing polls as evidence, but I'll remind you that the week before the election, Clinton was polling within the polling margin of error for a loss. Most everyone ignored this fact because conventional wisdom said she would win.

Bernie is a sellout.

He did not have to support Clinton....but he knew it created a scapegoat scenario.....Hillary, Wasserman Shultz's, others in DNC knew it too......talk about the sexism used against Bernie by Hillary.....she has evil karma coming her way, just like Bill.
