Hillary Clinton Follows The Money

by JASmius

One of Hillary Clinton's biggest weaknesses and vulnerabilities - for which there is scads and gobs of competition - in her second presidential death march has been and remains her insatiable greed.  It is a hairlip-obvious anchor around her saggy, jowly, waddled, multi-chinned neck that the communist revolutionary champion of the Democrat proletariat, Bernie Sanders, has been able to exploit to devastating effect over the past six months, culminating in her narrow defeat in Iowa and crushing defeat in New Hampshire that only the burgeoning superdelegate-driven screwjob that will rive the Democrat Party if it's allowed to reach fruition has averted from ending her psychopathic obsession already.

Heading into this Saturday's Democrat caucuses in Nevada - or what has been considered, until now, the Empress's "western firewall" - she desperately needs to get into the win column to avoid, at best, a long, draining, messy, divisive nomination battle.  And part and parcel of that would seem to be to not do anything to reinforce her money-grubbing image.

But she just can't help herself:

Campaign fundraising rises to new heights Monday when Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton’s campaign embarks on an unprecedented and astonishing money-making jag through nine States. Either Mrs. Clinton, former President Bill Clinton or daughter Chelsea Clinton will be present at every one of these events, which command entry tickets ranging in price from $1,000 to $27,000 each. This is a very determined family unit. Here is how the logistics shake out:

Mrs. Clinton will attend three “conversation”-style fundraisers in Florida on Monday, her daughter will be in Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio, followed by Shavertown, Pennsylvania. On Tuesday, Mrs. Clinton is in New York City for two appearances, including one with Governor Andrew Cuomo, followed by a third in McLean, Virginia. Wednesday is the busiest of all: The candidate has three events in Chicago, Chelsea Clinton attends one in Omaha and one in Mission Hills, Kansas, while Mr. Clinton has three events in New York City.

Didja notice which State is not on La Clinton Nostra's itinerary?  Nevada.  The one she's got to win to avoid going 0-3 and reinforcing the perception of the inevitability....of her own defeat.

But have no fear, my friends, for Mrs. Clinton is the epitome of diversity in her tin-eared screw-ups, as she has also managed to smear Nevada Democrat voters as racists and piss off Harry (G)Reid, the local King, at the same time:

With five days to go until the Nevada caucuses — once viewed as Hillary Clinton’s western firewall — Senator Harry {G}Reid and his allies are incensed at the wounded Democrat [back]runner.

The reason: The [Rodham] campaign’s attempt to downgrade expectations there by whitewashing the diverse State.

The campaign’s recent assertion that Nevada is “still a State that is 80% white voters” – in other words, a State that looks a lot like Bernie Sanders’ base — is simply wrong, (G)Reid allies claim. But more galling than that, they say, it undermines the entire rationale for the caucuses’ existence — the State was only pushed to the front of the election calendar eight years ago because (G)Reid lobbied for better demographic representation than the overwhelmingly white early-voting States like Iowa and New Hampshire.

Two States that she has lost - meaning she's un-nominatable among white Dems - heading into a State that she is implicitly admitting she's also going to lose, even though she's supposedly more electable among minorities, which is presumably why she's "smearing" Nevada as "white".  Even though she herself is that color.

I can't wait to see her pull the same stunt in South Carolina next week and alienate the Palmetto State's large black Democrat electorate.  If I didn't know better, I could almost believe she's serving as Weekend Bernie's stalking mare.
