Hillary Signs Her Death Warrant, Defends Her Iraq War Vote

Is Hillary Clinton suicidal? She’s got to be. Here’s what she said during a recent campaign appearance in Iowa:

I have a much longer history than one vote, which I said was a mistake because of the way that it was done and how the Bush administration handled it.

In other words, going to war against Iraq was a great idea in itself, but that nasty Bush administration simply handled it wrongly.

Well, that’s a great way of handing Iowa over to Bernie Sanders, I guess. The Iraq War was and remains incredibly unpopular among Democrats, and Sanders was one of its staunchest opponents in the Senate. If you’re a socialist — which is what the majority of Democratic voters are nowadays — that’s almost reason enough for you to cast your vote for him and against Hillary. The only thing that may prevent you from doing so is Hillary going on record to apologize for her vote.

Instead, Hillary does the exact opposite.

It’s amazing. And wonderful at the same time. After all, what’s more pleasant than watching a Clinton go down in a hot, burning ball of fire?
