America’s Most Distrusted Woman Is Also Its Worst Comic

America’s Most Distrusted Woman Is Also Its Worst Comic

How Could Republicans Be Unable to Beat Hillary?

You might want to have a looped soundtrack of fingernails on a blackboard cued up . . . Because you could be clamoring for something relatively soothing like that after listening to Hillary’s attempt at stand-up comedy.

With All Due Respect opened today’s show with a clip of Hillary trying to use humor to attack Donald Trump, as she stood in front of one his shuttered Atlantic City casinos. But the humor fell so flat, and was delivered in such a grating tone, that WADR put its own seal of . . . disapproval on the performance by following each “joke” with a classic “wha wha” or other sarcastic sound. Co-host John Heilemann delivered the  coup de grâce, acerbically saying: “oh boy, spontaneous humor abounding in Atlantic City.”

Has there ever been a weaker presidential candidate than Hillary Clinton? She makes Walter Mondale look like Shecky Greene, and has all the personal warmth and charm of [fill in the blank.] The irony is that Donald Trump trounced the Republican primary field, but might be the only guy who could lose to her. But it’s a long way to November . . .

MARK HALPERIN: I’m Mark Halperin.

JOHN HEILEMANN: And I’m John Heilemann. And with all due respect to Hillary, James Comey had better material.

HILLARY CLINTON: His campaign said, let’s sell off America’s assets. Where do we start: the Statue of Liberty?

WADR SOUNDTRACK: Wha, wha, wha, wha.

HILLARY: If he wants to make America great again, maybe he should start by actually making things in America again.

WADR SOUNDTRACK: [Crickets]

HILLARY: We need to write a new chapter in the American dream, and it it sure cannot be Chapter 11.

WADR SOUNDTRACK: [another mocking sound effect]

HEILEMANN: Oh boy: spontaneous humor abounding in Atlantic City.

Is this the most depressing Presidential election ever?

    Yes. But I’m still voting for Trump, because the alternative is too horrible to contemplate.

      Voting Libertarian to throw the vote to the House is FAR preferable to that blow-hard liar.

    DieJustAsHappy in reply to rinardman. | July 6, 2016 at 10:31 pm

    About the only way it could get any worse is if both of them were on the same presidential ticket.

    If there could take place a national vote on whether or not to cancel this race between Trump and hillary and begin a new one, what do you think the percentage of ALL voters would be to vote yes? I’m guessing about 80%

Clinton will win with the Republican establishment’s vote. While Obama promised redistributive change, Trump promises a reform of the status quo. The overlapping and converging interests between the Republican establishment and Obama, Clinton et al is a surprise second only to the remarkable Trump phobia that they have exhibited.

Anyway, Clinton for redistributive change, [class] diversity schemes, welfare state, anti-native policies, progressive (i.e. illegal) wars, opportunistic regimes changes, abortion rites, Planned Parenthood, progressive debt, and a State-establish Pro-choice Church (e.g. spontaneous conception, selective exclusion, discretionary laws).

To answer your question:

Because they have put in place the mechanism to allow a Democrat-in-Republican-clothing to run, and promoted the celebrity while destroying the leaders who would stand up to this Soviet-style corruption and criminal activity.

In other words, they allowed Trump to be the presumptive nominee.

    destroying the leaders who would stand up to this Soviet-style corruption and criminal activity.

    And when were these paragons planning to start standing up?

    Republican performance during the entire Obama era has been somewhat short of what’s required for a passing grade. “More of the same” would not be a promising strategy.

    …they allowed Trump to be the presumptive nominee.

    Yes, “they” somehow duped all those 11.1 million voters – an all time record – into voting for him. Not that you care, but I voted for Cruz in the primary but I’ll sure as hell be voting for Trump in November.

Simple: vote for the Republican candidate, Donald Trump; or vote for the traitorous, lying, corrupt establishment candidate Hillary Clinton.

Those are the only actual choices we have.

We already know for whom the ‘bought & paid for’ are voting, the only question is who’s going to join them?

Of course some of you quislings will throw away your vote because “principles” which means you’re helping Hillary. I fail to see how such as you can sleep at night, or look at yourself in a mirror.

I’m sure glad I don’t have such flexible “principles.”

How Could Republicans Be Unable to Beat Hillary?

One obvious reason is that D’rat party discipline is outstanding; Republican party discipline is essentially non-existent.

You won’t see the the Dems castrate themselves by bleating that a Dem convention delegate should be free to “vote his conscience”.

The Dems can win even with the most appalling candidates because once the candidate is selected, it no longer matters how bad he is; they support him, lie for him, vote for him, no matter how awful they may personally believe him to be. And they don’t put their purity on parade by announcing that they’ll have to hold their noses to vote Party; they just shut up and do it.

An election is not an excuse for preening self-indulgence. It’s a team sport, and the side which can’t even show up on the field with a functioning team will lose.

Lets see……a potential nominee with 22% support and in 3rd place goes into a GOP nominating convention and wins! say it can’t happen? Well it did! The GOP nominated a ungainly, hairy, ugly guy with a brilliant mind for prez at their convention in 1860….Honest Abe……now we have a guy in second place……not so ugly, hairy or ungainly but also with a brilliant mind…….GO TED CRUZ 2016!

    Sorry he lost

    Barry in reply to audax. | July 7, 2016 at 9:36 am

    Pushing farcical nonsense about the 1860 convention of a new party operating under a completely different rule structure as somehow giving hope to your delusions just shows what fools people like you are.

    Trump is the choice of the republican party. You have 3 choices, vote Trump, vote Clinton, or waste your vote due to your “principles”. Given the nonsense you peddle, I’m sure your vote will oppose common sense.

One of the funniest things about Hillary is that her trusted adviser, Huma Abedin, is the wife of that one Congressman who sent revealing pictures of himself to women from the Capitol locker room. What was is name again? Oh yeah, Anthony Wiener!

“HILLARY: If he wants to make America great again, maybe he should start by actually making things in America again.”

What has Slick Hilly EVER made anywhere? Benghazi?

It amazes me that people who otherwise appear reasonable and intelligent still push the idea that somehow the Convention will spin its rules enough to allow someone other than Trump to get the nomination.

And if somehow they did that, somehow they have convinced themselves that the voters who would feel it is nothing more than theft would rally behind the thief because “he’s so much better than Hillary?” More likely those p*ssed off voters would not only bail on the nominee but spread their anger down ticket.

Of course the people who hate Trump would be happy to vote for anyone else. But do they really think the people who CHOSE Trump in the primaries are going to quietly fall in line when they agree that he was robbed of the nomination? Actually why should they – the supporters of some of the primary losers don’t seem to feel required to do so.
