The possibility of physical and mental collapse is now very real. No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride…and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well…maybe chalk it off to forced conscious expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten.
Hunter Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
She is ill. She is pandering. She is barking. She is losing. Hillary lost in Iowa (a tie resulting in a multiple coin flip is not a win), she was decimated by double digits in New Hampshire, and she has lost a 13 point lead in Nevada resulting in a dead heat with Bernie Sanders. The political talk around the water cooler in this town is that she may very well lose in a state that has a 40% minority population and powerful unions—usually a firewall for Democrats, but not for Hillary. According to a source close to the Clinton’s:
“The shit will hit the fan,” one longtime friend of the Clintons predicted. “No doubt about it. I think there’s real genuine concern about Bernie’s momentum and that the firewall doesn’t seem to be holding back the fire,” the friend said. “I don’t think people think she isn’t going to win the nomination.”
The hookers love Hillary…and Bill, but the culinary union and the AFL/CIO have refused to endorse her; many prominent Nevada Democrats are feeling the Bern (Pssst: Nevadans, a socialist is running in the 4th Congressional district); and when the caucus commences on Saturday, Hillary is skipping town to fly to Texas for a fundraiser? The young latino vote is important to both candidates, however, Viva Bernie is gaining steam and is a growing part of the Berning Revolution. Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, doesn’t have a revolution, or a following, and the only burning going on in her camp are some droopy bras from some old feminist nags, sans Susan Sarandon.
After Hill’s humiliating primary defeats, there were promises of a campaign shake up, however, the only noticeable shake is her shake down of delegates. No matter if Hillary Clinton loses the NV primary, the Democrats have the super delegates lined up in her favor.
The DNC and the super delegates may believe they have rigged the nomination in her favor, however, the revolution and energy is behind Bernie and I don’t expect the Berners to drop their support or socialist ideals for a woman who exemplifies all that they find wrong with Wall Street or K Street.
According to Hunter Thompson: “History is hard to know, because of all the hired bullshit, but even without being sure of “history” it seems entirely reasonable to think that every now and then the energy of a whole generation comes to a head in a long fine flash, for reasons that nobody really understands at the time—and which never explain, in retrospect, what actually happened.”
Hillary has a history that the millennials have not experienced but they have the energy of an indoctrinated generation…one that the progressives have wanted and designed, but may soon regret. The Democrats, and their hired bullshit, may not be able to explain their inability to nominate an avowed socialist loon, but sooner or later, they should be forced to publicly admit that their progressive goals are Bernie’s goals–especially when they have a Puerto Rican Marxist campaigning in Nevada for their “progressive” champion.
