Today’s quote comes to us from Hillary Clinton. It was stated during the Rutgers University speech referenced in my previous blog.
Here is poor, set-upon Ms. Clinton, bewailing the unfair status she, and women in general, are subjected to – this time regarding when they overstay their welcome after losing an election:
“I was really struck by how people said that to me — you know, mostly people in the press, for whatever reason — mostly, ‘Go away, go away’. And I had one of the young people who works for me go back and do a bit of research. They never said that to any man who was not elected. I was kind of struck by that”.
Yep, sure, Hillary. The press – with its well-documented history of being against you – was clamoring for you to “go away”. And you are the first person who ever lost an election being told “enough already, get over it” – never happened before. Oh, and you’re a woman. We almost forgot.
Does anyone in his or her right mind believe that if, instead of a woman named Hillary Clinton, this were a man – say, Clint Hillary – who lost an election, then whined incessantly about it for a year and a half, no one would tell ol’ Clint to put a sock in it?
Oh, wait. We “know” it wouldn’t happen. Why? Because an unnamed young person who works for Hillary checked the entire history of electoral politics and it never happened. Honest. We have Hillary Clinton’s word for it.
I award Hillary Clinton Quote Of The Day “honors” for moving the BS meter’s reading to a level not seen since….well, since her last BS comment. Which means it didn’t happen that long ago at all.
