With Hillary Clinton’s embarrassing showing in the New Hampshire Primary on Tuesday, she’s decided to call in “The B Team” to help with the dirty tricks and the smears. Now, I hear what you’re saying…Hillary was the one at the last town hall meeting to intimate that Bernie Sanders was “smearing me”, and it’s not really the case. She gets smeared because if you talk about accomplishments, it always leads to scandals. So, the B Team of David Brock and Sidney Blumenthal are on the trail now. But there’s a big problem…
Bernie Sanders has never been involved in a scandal.
In a situation where most politicians have done SOMETHING in DC that gets you thinking they’re just out to try and make a buck or scam the system, Sanders appears to be a white knight. Now, I’m not Bernie Sanders fan, but I’ve said it before. He’s honest, and he’s straight forward. I don’t agree with his politics one bit, and in fact, I find him unelectable if he were to get the nomination. But you have to hand it to him…he doesn’t have a problem with Wall Street donations. He doesn’t have a problem demanding private jets. He made $1800 in speaking fees two years ago that he donated to charity. She made $21 million that she kept. Somehow, I think that they are going to have a hard time digging the dirt on Bernie.
So, Brock and Blumenthal are going out calling Sanders every name in the book. You probably caught Bill Clinton, looking like they just released him from a nursing home doing the same thing on Monday. He was hoping it would have some effect on New Hampshire voters. It didn’t. In fact, the only group of voters that Hillary Clinton did better than Bernie Sanders with was 65+. Maybe that’s why she brought out Madeline Albright and Gloria Steinem? They’re both in their late 70’s and early 80’s respectively.
Somehow, I don’t see the Clinton Dirty Tricks Team having much success this time around. It makes me wonder if they really should continue the campaign or just call it quits and turn it over to Joe Biden now. If they did that, my original idea of getting out of the race, letting Biden take over to run, and getting a presidential pardon in exchange would be a very viable solution. Of course it would stain Hillary’s reputation forever, but tell me truthfully (again with the irony!), do you really think you can stain that dress any more than it already is?
So, bring on the B Team. Have the C Team and D Team ready…this is becoming a little bit like Dr. Seuss and The Cat In The Hat. And it’s beginning to have the appearance of a cartoon as well.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
