In 27 Seconds Hillary Removed Any Hope of Me Voting for Her
In 27 seconds we see a politician nobody endorsed trying to pump up another politician everyone hates for pushing through a $15/hr minimum wage she never supported.
And when the people in the room booed the guy everyone hates the politician nobody endorsed tried to browbeat them into going along with her because after all, the guy everybody hates stood up for the wage she said she wouldn't go along with.
And in case everyone doesn't know, the politician nobody endorsed had a nice chat with Duncan E. Kirkwood, the local advocacy manager for the Northeast Charter School Network before she headed up to Ra Cha Cha to talk at all those people who didn't endorse her.
I can't decide exactly if it was cluelessness, hubris or indifference that drove Hillary Clinton to think she could mention ne'erdowell shithead Andrew Cuomo's name in a roomful of unionized teachers and not get a negative reaction from them. I have no problem believing she is so tuned out and disconnected from the world people like us inhabit that she'd never imagine mentioning a punchbowl turd like Cuomo would strike a sour nerve. Then again I think she's also hubristic enough to believe that she owes these people nothing. And after all Cuomo is a powerful ally of hers if not ours so tough shit if we don't like it but she's going to give him some love and we can just deal with it. Finally, and I think this could really be it, she just doesn't give a shit what a bunch of losers who make $62K a year wiping other people's kids noses and teaching them times tables think. I mean really these are throwaways who can't do a thing for her or her prospects.
And if I didn't already have enough reasons not to vote for Hillary Clinton under any circumstances -- the Trump doomsday scenario included -- the fact that she cared so little about teachers that she'd mention a cretin like Cuomo to us then try and humbug us into hearing what a champ he really is just put me over the top.
Bernie will be in Alumni Arena this Monday at 7:00 pm. I've seen Talking Heads, The Clash, Sedaris and John Oliver there. I'll tell my grandkids how I saw President Sanders there. I hope to see you too.
Feel the Bern Hill. We Are!
