Hillary Clinton Continues To Sag As First Donk Debate Looms

by JASmius

No, I didn't write anything this week specifically about Mrs. Clinton's vow to be a bigger dictator on gun control than Barack Obama, or her about-face on the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement after having been its loudest and strongest advocate back in O's first term (and not twenty-four hours after one of her aides had talked up TPP as one of Her Nib's elusive "accomplishments," not unlike the country bumpkin who gets his fifteen minutes of fame after making a Bigfoot sighting).  I could have, but what would have been the point?  That Hillary Clinton lies whenever she believes that it suits her political interests of the moment?  That she never met a principle she wouldn't abandon....whenever she believes that it suits her political interests of the moment?  That's the ultimate "dog bites man"/"All the inbound airline flights landed safely and without incident at the airport today" post.  As the aforelinked Goldberg column above details, even the media openly and regularly scoffs at the Empress's paucity of veracity.  It's part of the CMBR (Cosmic Microwave Bullshit Radiation).  Get back to me when she actually tells the truth about something AND she believes THAT suits her political interests of the moment.  THAT would be newsworthy.

Still, all that transparent, desperate pandering to the lunatic Left is highly amusing when it's followed up shortly by polling updates like the following:

Just days before she will take the stage in the first Democrat debate, Hillary Clinton's lead over rival Bernie Sanders has narrowed, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

[Mrs.] Clinton's support among Democrat voters fell ten points within less than a week.

From October 4th to October 9th, [Mrs.] Clinton saw her support tumble from 51% of Democrat support to just 41%.

Her nearest competitors, Vermont Senator Sanders and Vice President Joe Biden, who has yet to decide whether he will run, both made gains. Support for Sanders jumped from just over 24% to 28%, and Biden rose from 16% to an even 20% in the same time period. [emphasis added]

All that pandering, all that wallowing in radical leftwingnut extremism, all the shrill shrieking, and her polling plunge accelerated.  And it's a safe bet that that congenital dishonesty that has become such a cliche that it's turned Herself into a punchline is not going to make this upcoming Democrat debate any palliative to her flickering and sparking campaign's chances.

Indeed, one-time Clinton svengali Dick Morris believes Hillary's headed for the cellar and an ignominious, humiliating exit:

Veteran political consultant Dick Morris says in the event of a three-way Democrat presidential primary, Hillary Clinton will finish last, easily bested by both by Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders.

And if the vice president does decide to throw his hat in the ring, he'll win the nomination whether or not he picks Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren as his running mate as has been rumored, Morris adds.

"Whether Warren or not, if Biden gets in he's going to be the Democrat candidate," Morris, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton, said Friday on The Steve Malzberg Show on Newsmax TV.

Morris believes that Biden has the edge because Sanders is unelectable and, well, we've exhaustively and redundantly detailed all of Mrs. Clinton's drawbacks.  Bottom line: Biden is likable, scandal-free, enjoys public sympathy after the tragic death of his son Beau earlier this year, and would represent Obama's third term, which has a lot more general appeal to the electorate than any of you want to admit.  And, if he were to pick Fauxcahontas as his running mate, then one Slow Joe term could be followed up easily by one for her (Warren would be 70 in 2020) with Julian Castro as her running mate (as I originally forecasted for this cycle), followed by a couple for him.  That would be six consecutive terms, twenty-four straight years, of Democrat domination of the White House, throughout all of which the presidential dictatorship would deepen, entrench, and expand.  Heck, by 2032 there might not even be a Congress anymore, disbanded as the vestigal dunsel it would have become.

Zooming back in on this cycle, it goes without saying that Joe Biden is more likable, personable, and again, sympathetic than the Ugly Dutchess, as well as anybody in the GOP field (Say goodnight, Trump, Cruz, and Christie).  Rogaine would even satisfy the public inclination to get away from callow, inexperienced, wet-behind-the-ears greenhorns and return to having age and experience in the Oval Office, death-knelling what would probably be our best shot, Marco Rubio (And no, it wouldn't matter that Biden had been Obama's veep for eight years - remember, voters ceased taking politics seriously a long, long time ago).  The more I think about it, the more convinced I become that if Joe Biden jumps into the race, it won't be just Hillary Clinton's hopes that die; in essence, the 2016 race will be over right then and there.

None of that happens if Hillary Clinton remains the default Democrat "frontrunner".

Will Slow Joe pull the trigger?  Who knows?  That's why I haven't written anything about his Hamlet-esque ponderings about taking a third shot at the POTUS ring.  But if and when he does, suffice it to say that business will be picking up dramatically shortly thereafter.
