Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!

Thanks as always to Pirate’s Cove and The Other McCain for the Rule Five links.

Also, a special thanks to our blogger pal Doug Hagin for the link and comments over at The Daley Gator!

Today, by the way, is the day our nation elects the next President; that is, the day the Electoral College meets to cast their ballots.  A fair number of Democrats are still in denial.  (Remind me who it was that reacted with howls of outrage when The Donald indicated he might not accept the results of the election?)  Excerpt:

From the night of November 8 onward, the political coverage has been dominated by a series of conspiracies to explain the election of Donald Trump. Never acceptance. Always denial.

FBI Director James Comey: Weeks after the election, conventional wisdom had coalesced around the idea that his letter informing Congress that the bureau had found new evidence relating to the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton had irreversibly changed the election. After hammering Trump with one accusation after the next—some of them legitimate and some of them completely unproven—Democrats seemed to believe their candidate should be immune from news of her own doing. But it was Clinton who used a secret email server to circumvent transparency. She was the one who sent unsecured classified documents. She was the one who attempted to destroy the evidence. She was the one who lied to the American people. And she was nominated by Democrats who never seriously entertained any another candidate.

Here’s a note to Democrats and other denizens of the political Left, paraphrasing one of your own:  Elections have consequences.  Trump won.

It’s interesting to see the Left playing the blame game here.  Now, I make my living teaching high-tech companies how to find root causes and thereby solve problems, and the Democrats don’t seem to be able to see the root cause of this lost election, even though it’s as plain as the nose on Barbra Streisand’s face:

They picked an awful candidate.

Her Imperial Majesty, the Dowager Empress of Chappaqua Hillary I, was not only the most deeply and fundamentally corrupt; she was not only venal, dishonest and contemptuous of ordinary Americans.  She was all that and also had a sense of entitlement the size of the Virgo Supercluster, and it came through – in the debates, in every speech (few though they were) and in her petulant cry of “why aren’t I ahead by fifty points by now?”

As much as the Left decries the buffoonery of Trump, you would think that they would find some sort of message in the fact that their candidate lost to him.  But no – they’ll blame fake news, Wikileaks (who did the only real investigative journalism of the election cycle) and the Russians (who may or may not have been involved in the hacking that only released actual DNC emails.)  Now the Democratic Party is doubling down on failure by deciding that when socialist policies didn’t sell, why then they just need to socialism harder.

If they don’t get past this in 2020 and start trying to actually analyze why they got their butts handed to them this year, then The Donald will coast to re-election.
