No Absolution for Women Who Didn’t Vote Democrat?

Hillary Clinton continues her blame tour, this time lashing out at any woman who didn’t vote for her.

Hillary Clinton seems bound and determined to remind everyone just how unlikable of a person she is. As she has recently been making the rounds touting her new book “What Happened,” Hillary is making sure that everyone knows that it was not her fault that she lost the election.

Among her long list of targets subjected to blame are, ironically, women — specifically women who failed to vote for her. This latest revelation comes from a cringe-worthy passage in her book.

> On one occasion, an older woman dragged her adult daughter by the arm to come talk to me and ordered her to apologize for not voting — which she did, head bowed in contrition. I wanted to stare right in her eyes and say, “You didn’t vote? How could you not vote?! You abdicated your responsibility as a citizen at the worst possible time! And now you want me to make you feel better?” Of course, I didn’t say any of that.

> These people were looking for absolution that I just couldn’t give. We all have to live with the consequences of our decisions.

Clinton is, of course, once again referencing that tired old Democrat playbook of identity politics, trotted out like it’s the gospel truth. Hillary’s message to women is simple: If you didn’t vote for me, then you are an idiot and your commitment to womanhood deserves to be questioned. Frankly, we’re amazed that this message resonates with so many women and minorities, but that’s why Democrats keep using it. Then again, a lot of women didn’t vote for her because of what a terrible candidate she really was. They weren’t idiots; they were smart.

It’s natural to feel a degree of sympathy for those who, after having given their best effort, failed to obtain their desired goal, like athletes failing to win the championship game. But that sympathy quickly sours if the losers blame everyone else for their defeat. No one likes a sore loser. Clinton, already highly unlikable, is so blinded by her own attitude of entitlement that she has decided to double down and expand her blame game. It’s getting so bad that even members of her own party are turning on her. One wonders if she is such a sore loser that she’ll drag down her own party out of spite. How does that proverb go about a woman scorned…?
