    Hillary’s Book Has a Fake Title

    By Kyle | September 18, 2017

    It’s called “What Happened” but it only makes sense if you acknowledge the real title is “Why I Should Have Won.” More in a column.

      Last-ditch attempt to cash in.

      “Instead she’ll go down in the books defined by three gigantic public humiliations: the Lewinsky scandal and two losing presidential campaigns in which she was the heavy favorite.”

      Four: The 1994 Health Care plan fiasco.


      Clinton: “The politics of cultural identity and resentment were overwhelming evidence, reason, and personal experience.”

      This sentence, which was cloned from “The ESPN Moron Avoiding Dead Air, Say Something, Anything, Stupid!” template, means absolutely nothing.

      It’s simply a string of words that impersonates the existence of thought.


      Clinton: It seemed like “Brexit” had come to America even before the vote in the United Kingdom, and it didn’t bode well for 2016. . . .

      As if “2016” was a synonym for her own personal welfare.

      Hillary Clinton & Tina Brown (The New Yorker, 1992-98; Miramax 1998-2002, etc.),

      Separated At Birth:

      “Tina Brown lives for cleverness, but I can’t recall one good anecdote about her, or a single smart remark she’s [ever] made…

      “Like a lot of people driven to leave their stamp on the nebulous, she seems to have no interests – only goals, which are both endlessly attainable & never permanent…

      “Her best-kept secret may be that she’s a dullard.”

      Tom Carson, Village Voice, July 21, 1998
