Feel free to consider this as just one, long, self-serving “I Told Ya’ So”, …’cause that’s pretty much what it is.
A few months back, I wrote a post called “The Non-inevitability of Queen Hillary“. Some folks openly disagreed with my premise, while others figuratively crossed their fingers and hoped I was right. But few (…none, actually, as I recall…) came out and echoed what I thought was patently obvious: Hillary is quite simply a supremely non-appealing candidate.
“Inevitable”? Not hardly. She may be the most “evitable” candidate, evah…
An update to THIS story.
Honestly, it’s a wonder she survived at all….
I’m begging: please, please, please let Hillary run in 2016.
The former Secretary Of State just kicked-off her book tour, but unfortunately (for her) the clip below may turn out to be the most memorable sound bite she’s had since her 2013 mega-hit, “What Difference Does It Make?”:

Nothing to see here. Move along.
(via PJ Media) – “…The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud.
- 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.
- 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.
- 155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.
Now ain’t THAT just a co-ink-i-dink?
There exists an almost endless series of examples of how liberals delude themselves into believing they alone are intelligent, scholarly pragmatists, while simultaneously holding that we on the Right are shallow thinkers, allowing all of our decisions to be dictated solely by our extremist “partisanship”.
This is, to use a clinical term, hogwash.

**(UPDATE: November 10th, 2016)**
Was I a Trump fan? Uhhh, …that’d be No.
Was I vastly happier that Hillary LOST? Oh, great googily-moogily: Yes, Yes, Yes.
And based on what I’ve read, it looks like this post ended-up being oddly prescient. Of course, I admit that I didn’t count on the whole damn country in essence ‘flipping the bird’ to the entire Political Establishment on BOTH sides, but then again I’ve never maintained to be Nostradamus Jr..
But when ya consider that Hillary lost to the only Republican candidate whom she could have POSSIBLY beaten (and yes, I’m including “Jed!” in there, as well), well, …this was pretty solid.
Huh. Go figure.
Whenever I hear breathless talk of Hillary-in-2016 being a foregone conclusion, I have to admit: I chuckle. Loudly. And no, it’s not because I’m naïvely avoiding reality. Quite the opposite, in fact.
No, any fears I could have from the thought of a Clinton 2.0 presidency is assuaged by common sense: she’s not nearly as popular as the progressive intelligentsia would have us believe.
We’re honored to have a guest post today from friend-of-the-blog, the ‘Deja Reviewer‘. His post asks a reasonable question, and in light of the actions of so many recently in elected office, it’s probably a question more folks should be asking more often.
When was the last time you truly admired an elected official who represents you? And when I say “admire”, I specifically mean that you understand that this individual:
- Put their pride aside and always tried to do the right thing.
- Served his/her constituents rather than seeking power for its own sake.
- Was morally upright in his/her personal life.
- Was the kind of person you aspire to be.
How many spring to mind?
Can you think of one?
