Since her election loss Hillary Clinton has been a constant media presence trying to explain all the reasons lost the election (my latest count is 30 excuses). Along with her blame game, at times Ms. Clinton has hinted she might run again in 2020. By drawing the coverage, Hillary’s been squeezing out other Democrats from receiving coverage.
Enter Donna Brazile, whose book “Hacks” feeds the rumor her winning of the nomination wasn’t fair, claims that the campaign was incompetent, had racist and misogynistic elements, and was too arrogant in its belief they had the election won to listen to advice that they were in trouble.
If Hillary Clinton’s book is named, “What Happened,” Brazile’s book could have been titled “What Really Happened.” Donna Brazile is a long-time Democratic Party operative who twice served as interim chairman of the party. She wouldn’t have written a book bashing Hillary Clinton if she wasn’t trying to free the party from the grasp of the Clinton machine.Oh yes, Donna Brazile throwing herself on her sword to rid the Democrat Party of the Clinton influence! What utter horseshit. Brazile was feeding debate questions to Hillary Clinton while shanking Bernie Sanders in the kidneys, but NOW we're supposed to assume that she was just standing there while all of this happened around her without any input or influence from poor little 'ol Donna?
Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying watching the Democrats re-create the Night of the Long Knives within their party, but let's keep in mind that the person writing about all the problems was at least partially responsible for the vast majority of those problems to begin with.
As such, you always have to wonder just what the side-hustle is. Keep your eyes open.
