"In Clinton World, Whining Often Wins."

Craig Crawford observes:
Funny how the prospect of imminent losses produce spates of Clintonian self-pity that often manage to rally just enough votes to survive....

Once again, dejected Clinton aides are spinning doomsday scenarios. This time, they might be right....
How many cycles of that can you spin?

I'm actually surprised there's not a Flash "Make Hillary Cry" game out there yet. There ought to be.

In Clintonia, no victims are victims like the Clintons are victims.

And it's everyone else's fault but theirs.

It is both tiresome and pathetic.

The Clinton campaign is well thought out and planned. They will do anything to win, including silencing media critics- the media is dumb enough to fall for it e.g. MSNBC. They will use any tactic; whining, self pity, crying, empathy, sympathy, Bill the attack dog, Bill the nice southern fellow, Chelsea, hard ball tactics, unreasonable demands for debates, and whatever else they think will work. It usually does. They have a plan and they are working their plan. Every contingency was thought out and a plan put into place to handle it. Nothing was left to chance.

Win or lose, this campaign, if all the information about it will ever come out, would make a fascinating study for future campaigns and for academic pursuit. Love them or hate them, the Clintons created, designed, planned, and executed a perfect campaign that should be studied.

How come we didn't get a flag?

Does anyone believe that Hillary can stage a comeback after losing like ten straight primaries in a diverse group of states?

If she were a Republican, the MSM would start mocking her for refusing to drop out.

I think this constant attack on the Clinton's whining and victimhood is terrible. Just lay off it. They are good people just trying to serve their country and everyone keeps piling on them, saying all kinds of mean things. What have they done to deserve such accusations as this?

They've worked too hard to be constantly accused of whining and self-pity and playing the victim. All these unjustified attacks make me tear up. How can they stick to their message, their message of a wonderful future for the children, if they constantly have to defend themselves against charges that they constantly complain about having to defend themselves?

Why not think about times to come,
And not about the things that you've done,
If your life was bad to you,
Just think what tomorrow will do.

Dont stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Dont stop, it'll soon be here,
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterdays gone, yesterdays gone.

Sorry to be picky, but is there any chance you could change the headline to read, "In Clinton World, Whining Often Wins," as it is in the linked article?

As it is, I got the impression that you're making fun of a typo in the linked article.

Sorry about the careless cutting and pasting. I've fixed it. Thanks.
