Clinton’s Potty Break Interrupted by Demo ‘Debate’

DNC working to clear Hillary’s path.

Roughly 99.99% of Americans missed the fact that there was a Democrat presidential debate Saturday night. It’s painfully obvious that the Democratic National Committee is protecting Hillary Clinton by scheduling debates when no one will be watching because they’re out last-chance Christmas shopping and at the movies for opening weekend of Star Wars. So Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley can be forgiven for complaining. The party, which was once a raucous bunch that reveled in the old Will Rogers line — “I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Democrat.” — is now bending over backwards to make sure Hillary’s path to coronation is not blocked again. Even if she’s late back to the stage after a bathroom break.

Naturally, there weren’t many highlights. Whereas Republicans are engaged in a spirited debate about immigration, foreign policy and NSA surveillance, the three Democrats on stage Saturday offered nothing but leftist platitudes primarily on national security. They seek to gently criticize the atrocious state of affairs (under Barack Obama’s leadership, they’d rather you didn’t notice) while reminding viewers that Republicans are just plain terrible people.

Since Clinton will be the nominee, we’ll focus on her with three lowlights. An example of the lightly treading around Obama’s failures was Clinton’s reference to “glitches” in ObamaCare — like skyrocketing premiums and deductibles. She’ll fix that, though, she promises. On Syria and the Islamic State, she said, “We now finally are where we need to be.” Famous last words that will show up in many a Republican campaign ad. And on Republicans and the Islamic State, she insisted that the GOP frontrunner “is becoming ISIS’s best recruiter.” She explained, “They are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.” Then again, Clinton doesn’t have a great track record blaming videos for trouble in the Middle East.

All in all, you were better to finish that Christmas shopping than to sit through the Democrat drivel.
