Hillary Still Ain't Over It
I'm trying to remember a failed presidential candidate before now who made a second career out of whining about losing an election. Sure, Al Gore cried into his Hostess snack cakes for a while after his devastating loss, but then he found much greater success by appointing himself President of the Environment. John Kerry managed to weasel his way into an office for which he was even less suited than his predecessor. John McCain went back to the Senate. And Mitt Romney has had to settle for being incredibly rich and absolutely right about everything he said during the 2012 campaign.
They all moved on with their lives. They all stopped mewling like a baby who didn't get a cookie before bed. But not Hillary Clinton. The first female major party candidate is also the first to make a job out of losing. She still hasn't forgiven you, America, for rejecting her.
She spoke at the DNC Women's Leadership Forum this weekend, because of course she did. And she said something truly remarkable. Nicole Sganga, CBS News:
"We stand for truth, for evidence and facts. What an incredible thing!" Clinton exclaimed, in what may have been a lighthearted jab at an administration. Clinton continued, "We have kind of an affection for evidence. We think it should inform our policies, because they'll actually work better," she declared, prompting modest laughter from the female-dominated audience.
Yes, this should be modestly amusing to anyone with even a passing familiarity with Hillary's history of public statements. What's next, is Bill going to preach to us about chastity?
Hillary has always lied like it's her job. Now, her job is lying about all her lying.
Then there was this, also over the weekend:
She still "isn't over" what happened in the 2016 election, Clinton said, but she's heartened to see how much civic engagement it's spurred. https://t.co/sZ3m0P2R7P

Ain't that cute? See, the idea is that she lost the election due to her old pals in Russia -- remember that Reset button? -- and not because she was an awful candidate.
But wait, she's not done yet. Joseph Weber, Fox News:
Hillary Clinton will receive Harvard’s prestigious Radcliffe Medal for her “transformative impact on society,” according to the Ivy League university...
Organizers at Harvard say Clinton was chosen for the award because she’s a “champion for human rights,” a “skilled legislator” and “an advocate of American leadership” on the world stage.
More importantly, she has a vagina, and she stayed with her serially unfaithful husband for political reasons. This award is for everybody who's ever asked her, "Whaddaya want, a medal?"
