Bottom Line: What’s funny this time, though, is that it’s the corrupt Clinton camp having screwed the equally corrupt Bernie Sanders camp. As Henry Kissinger once said: “It’s too bad they can’t both lose.”
It never fails…
We saw it when Bill Clinton was sexually abusing interns in the Oval Office. Somehow that ended up as the fault of supposedly sex-crazed Republican inquisitors. We all know, of course, that if that had been a Republican President fiddling around with White House interns, why the high moral dudgeon would have been so thick you wouldn’t have been able to see your hand in front of your face.
Why, then, should anyone be surprised, when it comes to light that the Democrat National Committee (DNC) had been playing dirty tricks on one of their own in this election cycle’s primaries, that the Democrats and their media lapdogs decide that the major story isn’t Democrat Party corruption? No, the media have decided that the revelation of that corruption could be the result of collusion between Russian scumbag Vladimir Putin and the Trump campaign?
Mind you, no one has any evidence whatsoever that such collusion has taken place. Just some idle speculation about the timing of the release. The supposedly suspicious timing of the release of the leaked e-mails showing the Democrats’ corruption, obviously, gave a bit of a boost to Trump’s campaign. The actual Democrat corruption, though, you know — the real story? — not one feature about it in the news. Except, of course, at FOX.
Now, there’s certainly been coverage of the outrage that the Bernie Sanders zombies have been displaying — you couldn’t get away from it — but that’s it: their irritation is the story, not the corruption. And, let’s face it, the Sanders zombies are idiots anyway.
There are three aspects to the leaked e-mails story. (1) The hack of the DNC, (2) the revelation of Democrat Party leadership corruption, and (3) the invented Russia-Trump campaign connection. We’ve heard a lot about #1. We’ve heard only obliquely about #2, in the form of coverage of the Sanders zombies’ outrage, and we’ve heard lots and lots and lots about #3, which, let’s face it, is nothing more than idle speculation.
Yesterday, I was listening to one of the DNC’s major propaganda organs, National Public Radio (NPR) when one of the stories came out. The story mentioned in passing that the hack had happened, that it appeared that “the DNC was caught favoring Hillary Clinton” in the campaign. That intro lasted — maybe — ten seconds. Then it was a full five minutes or so of, again, nothing more than idle speculation about the possibility that Putin did this e-mail release to help Trump. The story was all, “Well, the timing is certainly suspicious!” and “Putin and Trump sure seem to have a real bromance going,” and “Here’s Trump saying [fill in quote here],” and “Here’s Putin saying [fill in quote here.]”
Look, as you all know, I’m no Trump fan, but this shucking and jiving on the part of the Democrats and their media puppets, to try to hide Clintonian corruption is laughable. There was even from them — while they were desperately putting their puny bodies in front of the 900-lb Clinton corruption gorilla in the room — references to Trump and The Wizard of Oz, and jeering about “the man behind the curtain.”
Rule #1 about Democrat Party political tactics: For the purpose of deflection, they immediately and always, loudly, operatically, vociferously, accuse others of what they themselves are guilty of doing, saying, being(1). If you hear Democrat accusations of corruption, you can be sure they’re engaging in corruption. If you hear Democrat accusations of racism, you can be sure they’re engaging in racism. If you hear Democrat accusations of evil of any kind, you can be sure of one thing: they’re guilty of what they’re accusing others of, and they want to pre-empt the discovery of it all.
What’s funny this time, though, is that it’s the corrupt Clinton camp having screwed the equally corrupt Bernie Sanders zombies. As Henry Kissinger once said: “It’s too bad they can’t both lose.”
For anyone at all paying attention, it’s all just so pathetic.
(1) We’ve said this numerous times in these pages. Last night on FOX News, Monica Crowley said it, almost as we said it here. ‘Bout time someone said it publicly. Now, they need to say it over and over and over and over again.
