From an electoral standpoint, the libs are in rough shape these days. They are without a way to sell their message beyond the crackpot base and their party has, for the time being, been hijacked by the Clinton political machine.
Not that I think they have stood for anything other than soft communism since FDR. But their operation relies on fantastic levels of spin. They played their trump card, so to speak, with Obama—their ultimate feel-good, equality-proving poster boy—and they have nowhere to go from here. Their only gambit is to prove more magical equality by following up a black president with a woman president. But their woman is Hillary, and that is one hell of a tough sell.
The Dem bosses don’t want Bernie Sanders, because they’re afraid that he takes all of their idiotic clichés seriously, and he might actually take power away from money printers and string pullers. Although he’s a buffoon, Sanders is, evidently, a genuine insurgent. In any other presidential election in the last 50 years he would have gotten as much traction as Miss Lindsay Graham has gotten among Republicans.
But Sanders’ popularity has nothing to do with Sanders. It is a comment on the utter lack of appeal Hillary brings to the table.
The fact that Hillary is almost certainly behind the attempt to have Sanders blackballed from the DNC—over a data breach, of all things—shows how desperate, and incredibly vulnerable, she is—and by extension, how vulnerable her party is. Her support is in all likelihood much, much thinner than what it is depicted as in the media.
The bizarre case of Hillary not turning up for some time when the Democratic debates resumed after a commercial break is a symptom of a terminal disease . . . if not a physical one, then a political one. The Dems’ current champion is a disaster. Remember: her health has long been in question, and some reliable sources claim that she is barely functional. She is a bitter, frail old woman attempting to keep up with the relentless schedule of a top-tier presidential campaign, and, at the same time, attempting to keep the lid on her life of crime.
When she can’t pull off something as simple as returning to the debate stage, on live TV, in a timely fashion, we know her various sicknesses have just about got her beat. Hillary is already a thinly-veiled catastrophe due to Benghazi, money laundering, email-related crimes, the trail of dead bodies stretching back decades, and her complicity in Bill’s rape career. But her health could be the figurative and literal final nail in her coffin. Her single selling point has been that she is a “strong woman.” She wants to inspire the lib base, to be like the bicep-flexing lesbian from the old propaganda posters. That front is crumbling, and the pathetic, palsy-stricken, Depends-dependent hag is showing through.
This late in the game, the Dems have no Plan B. If it isn’t Hillary they have to move forward with a cranky old communist or a bland nothing like Martin O’Malley. This doesn’t mean the election will not be stolen somehow. We are dealing with a hardcore criminal organization, after all. But as matters stand at the moment, the Republicans would have to go out of their way to lose next November.
