Hubris

Team Hillary was so out of touch, they couldn’t begin to fathom how out of touch they were.

Bill famously advised his wife’s campaign to do more to reach out to the (White Working Class), but in what will surely be recalled as one of the defining moments of hubris on Team Hillary, campaign manager Robby Mook replied, “the data run counter to your anecdotes.”

It’s just too perfect that Clinton lost the election in part because she relied on a gay, 36-year-old Ivy League data nerd rather than a two-time winner of a presidential election to show her the path to the White House.

Where the linked article gets it wrong, I think, is that it treats Democrats being out-of-touch with the White Working Class as an oversight. I think it was a deliberate political strategy. Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party wrote off the concerns of the White Working Class and didn’t even bother to try to reach out to them; confident that the New Democrat Coalition of queers, browns, illegals, felons, and white urban elites virtually assured their supremacy. It was this precise coalition that elected Hillary the President of Los Angeles (the county that provided most of her popular vote margin).

But rather than admit to their miscalculation, Team Hillary decided to spin a fantastic conspiracy theory of Russian hacking, media bias, and FBI collusion that no intelligent person could possibly believe.

  1. You left out hatred for her vagina as a reason for her loss.

  2. Rob Mook is a bad name for anyone involved in politics. That’s Ayn Rand villain bad. George Snuffulufogus telling Mook he was unprepared & not doing his job was gold.

  3. a gay, 36-year-old Ivy League data nerd

    I wish that the “gay” identifier were a needless embellishment.

    However, since the tiny gay “minority’ is overwhelmingly invested in “victim politics” where else are they to go than liberal social justice schemes and scams.

    I don’t know anything about Robby Mook than what is attributed to him.

    VtheK totally nails it:

    Team Hillary decided to spin a fantastic conspiracy theory of Russian hacking, media bias, and FBI collusion that no intelligent person could possibly believe.

    If “a gay, 36-year-old Ivy League data nerd” led the smartest woman in world down that path, then Shrillary got the reaming she deserved.

    Frankly, when the “establishment” gives us the candidates we “deserve” it turns out to be Mondale, Dole, Gore, Kerry, Obama, and Romney. Trump may have been a long-shot, but Hillary was the establishment favorite and they still can’t bear it.

  4. So, the woman who insists she got to where she is (was) on her own merits, ignored the advice from the man who actually got her where sh is (was) because Russians. The woman is batsheet crazy. I bet her grandchildren run (crawl) the other way when she enters the room.

  5. The Russian hacking story was recognizably ludicrous from the first. If Vladimir Putin had a choice, it would have been Hillary. She has a long history of selling out United States interests so long as she gets her cut. This history alone provided ample blackmail material in the unlikely event that Hillary suddenly developed patriotism or a conscience.

    One can safely assume the Russians hacked Hillary’s bathroom server. Everyone in the world was traipsing through Hillary’s server. One would have to be really dense not to, at least, check what all the excitement was about and the Russians are anything but dense. I’m sure the material they found went into Hillary’s blackmail file.

  6. So Kevin Williamson’s suggestions that these communities needed to die failed to convince anyone?

    Hillary’s brains trust aren’t alone in their open disdain of their inferiors.

  7. For anyone who’s not seen it, John Derbyshire had a pretty good take on “Trumpkins” – see Sections 5-7.

  8. if you look at what is going on in American colleges I think the political left has written off white people in general.

  9. The Clinton Archipelago graphic is damning.
    That’s why she lost…

  10. The authors of the article and the book the article discusses characterize to the point of caricature and I’m not convinced. Many of the Trump voters I’ve met aren’t lower middle class, paranoid, and uptight; they are professional, successful, and hate the Clintons and people like her. And let’s be honest: the difference between President Trump and President Clinton was only about 90K votes. I don’t see this election as some revolution or even a collective middle finger; rather, the less bad of two very bad candidates happened to win. The Clinton team didn’t feel the need to persuade and simply chose to disqualify their opposition (and Trump gave them every opportunity to do so), thinking that was enough. In fact, one of the reasons they didn’t set foot in Wisconsin was because they were afraid that if more people knew there was an upcoming presidential election, she would actually do worse. That approach to running a presidential campaign alone is worth an entire dissertation on modern American politics.
