Why Kurt Eichenwald and Peter Daou Need to Be Reincarnated as Amanda Marcotte's Dildos, Pt 2
In a magnificently whiny screed at his new perch on Shareblue, Daou had practically insisted that Hillary had won the election because she won by 0.2% of the popular vote. Daou apparently shares the same misguided sentiment that #1, winning a presidential election's popular vote by 0.2% of the population (or under 600,000 votes) makes for a pretty shitty and useless mandate, not the least reason of which is #2, the Electoral College's 538 electors is still the legally-binding metric. So Daou and Melissa McEwen, another second rate feminist, can whine and gnash their teeth at the election results all they want. But the bottom line is that, in the Electoral College, Trump still won by a landslide.
This is the preface of Daou's piece, which should tell you all you need to know about the crocodile tears that follow:
America's national media played a defining role in savaging Hillary Clinton's character, creating a grotesque caricature of the ethical, compassionate person she really is. Their pit bull-style coverage of her emails was the definition of disproportionality and indecency. Now they want to absolve themselves of guilt by blaming her for not appealing to certain demographics. We should reject their revisionism.Wow. That takes about 100 pounds of brain damage to actually write that in a public forum let alone believe it. Because it takes a terminal case of Head in Ass syndrome to believe Clinton is an "ethical, compassionate person" on any planet. To start his case, Daou puts up some impressive-looking graph then concludes by saying, "That gut-wrenching reversal in her favorability is why she lost. And it wasn’t anything she did. It was what was done to her."
There is absolutely no quarter given in the national narrative that showed countless millions of Americans were turned off by the incontrovertible proof of Clinton's, the DNC's or the MSM's corruption and collusion. In fact, he railed about the MSM's complicity in "savaging" Clinton and painting her, as has virtually everyone on the Tammany Hall 2.0 side, in painting her as the victim in all this.
Clinton's likeability took a sharp nosedive when the Podesta emails came out. That was prefaced by her unwillingness to hold a presser for 261 consecutive days, which just made her look furtive and that she had a lot to hide (and, as the Podesta emails proved beyond a doubt, that was exactly the case.) The media that were complicit in her inevitable downfall also colluded with the Clinton campaign to the point of CNN feeding debate questions to Donna Brazile to then pass on to her Goldwater Girl, and media outlets checking directly with campaign chair John Podesta and sucking up to him for his blessings before running with print stories.
For a year and a half, we saw a supine and endlessly compliant mainstream media that had helped Clinton limp to the finish line, telling the American people the Podesta emails were both fakes and illegal to read and were a product of the Russian government's meddling. We saw that same MSM endlessly help Clinton catapult the propaganda about Bernie Sanders and his supporters even to the point of launching a ridiculous lie started by professional scumbag John Ralston they were throwing chairs at the Nevada caucus (and, considering how that turned out, could anyone really blame them?).
If it wasn't for the compliant MSM that Daou insists on blaming for "savaging" his former boss (a disclaimer that has mysteriously disappeared since his Blue Nation Review gig ended at the end of August), Clinton wouldn't have even stolen the primaries hence the nomination from Bernie Sanders.
But if you'll notice, people like Daou, Marcotte and Herr Eichenwald won't even dare engage people on the proof of corruption and collusion because they know they have nothing (In fact, just try posting a comment on this site. As with the last one, they wouldn't even give people the chance to start a dialogue because they know they're full of shit). Instead, they craft these useless narratives that Hillary lost because she's a woman, Hillary lost because the blue meanies in the right wing press made her more unpopular than she had a right to be and that she actually won the election because she barely won the popular vote.
Had Clinton won the Electoral College but losing the popular vote, as Trump had, you'd be amazed how fast they'd back off any mention of worthless petitions demanding of the electors to change their votes to Clinton. Suddenly, they'd be huge fans of the Electoral College and poo-poohing the popular vote because, you know, that's not the one that counts.
Amanda Marcotte is among those so-called feminists that have been leading the charge that Hillary lost because there were nearly 61,000,000 misogynists in the country who were bound and determined to foil their long-cherished dream of having a novelty woman president regardless of how massively hated she was by tens of millions of voters. With people like Marcotte, it always comes down to vaginas and penises. Not corruption, not charisma or the lack thereof. It's all about the genitalia.
Again, for clarity's sake: Clinton's Pay to Play corruption both in her campaign and the Clinton Foundation is what cost her the election. And no one gave a rat's ass what she had between her legs when she approved billions in weapons deals and granted personal access to third world dictators with human rights abuses after they'd paid her family massive bribes.
And that's why angry white guys like Peter Daou and Herr Eichenwald would be better put to use in the next life by being reincarnated as dildos for Amanda Marcotte. They love women so much, that should be the perfect fate for them.
