Pity really, Hillary’s such an excellent manager

Hillary was so mad she couldn’t think straight. She was supposed to be focused on the prep session for that night’s Univision debate in Miami, but a potent mix of exhaustion and exasperation bubbled up inside.

She’d been humiliated in the Michigan primary the night before, a loss that not only robbed her of a prime opportunity to put Bernie Sanders down for good but also exposed several of her weaknesses. How could she have been left so vulnerable? She knew — or at least she thought she did. The blame belonged to her campaign team, she believed, for failing to hone her message, energize important constituencies and take care of business in getting voters to the polls. And now, Jake Sullivan, her de facto chief strategist, was giving her lip about the last answer she’d delivered in the prep session.

“That’s not very good,” Sullivan corrected.

“Really?” Hillary snapped back.

The room fell silent.

“Why don’t you do it?”

The comment was pointed and sarcastic, but she meant it. So for the next 30 minutes, there he was, pretending to be Hillary while she critiqued his performance.

  1. She is a vile old cow, one of the most corrupt and evil women ever to have lived and that is not excluding the Elizabeth Bathory’s of this Earth. Of course she treats those who are subservient to her as scum.

    This Sullivan is pure leftist dross himself or he would just have said “Fuck off you evil old cow” and walked out.

  2. The odd thing is that the people on her staff apparently wanted her to be President and thought she would be good at the job. That is truly astonishing, especially since she was reliant on her husband to really harangue her staff.

  3. Diogenes,

    “That is truly astonishing, especially since she was reliant on her husband to really harangue her staff.”

    I mean, can you imagine backing this woman and then getting told off by her husband? What sort of person are you backing who can’t manage their own shit and relies on their husband?

  4. “That is truly astonishing, especially since she was reliant on her husband to really harangue her staff.”

    What, by giving them a thorough tongue lashing? Or was that receiving one?

  5. This is not surprising. She is notorious for her belief that she is God’s gift, despite all evidence to the contrary.

    Here’s the thing that strikes me about that story. It reminds me that she *lost* the Michigan primary. Indeed, she was humiliated. That should have told her that she had problems in that state. Yet during the general election campaign she ignored Michigan, and her loss there sealed her doom (not that I’m complaining). A perfect illustration of what a political bumbler she is.

  6. What an absolutely terrible cunt this woman is. I would like to do a Nelson Muntz “Ha ha!” at her every day for the rest of her miserable life. But god it was close. She would have been worse than Obama, which is a terrifying prospect given just how incompetent and feckless he was.

  7. If the Clinton’s didn’t trust their team, why was nobody fired. Retaining people who who you regard as incompetent is not a sign of management ability. Also staying in a job where you are not respected is a sign of desperation.
    Sounds like a hopelessly incompetent and spineless lot.
    Thank God for Trump!

  8. BiCR – I think you’re right. Obama is prissy and petty, but he never seemed all that interested in power as such. He was basically a suave maitre d, wafted into office as a biddable, yet plausible-looking pitchman for the managerial elite.

    While the IRS and intelligence apparatus were weaponised for party political mischief under Obama’s watch, he was probably more personally interested in hobnobbing with celebrities and working on his golf game than in curating his enemies list and darkly muttering about vast, right wing conspiracies.

    Mrs Clinton is much more vindictive, by all accounts. As president she’d have been a less telegenic version of the witch from Army of Darkness.

  9. Obama is prissy and petty, but he never seemed all that interested in power as such. He was basically a suave maitre d, wafted into office as a biddable, yet plausible-looking pitchman for the managerial elite.

    Yup. I pretty much came to the same conclusion back in 2009 or so.

    Obama was little more than a cypher. The only thing he was interested in was prestige and his legacy.

    Great. So first mulatto US President, let’s check that off the list and move on.

    At least Denzel Washington or Morgan Freeman would have carried the role off with the personae of authority and gravitas.

    Obama was the epitome of a stuffed shirt with the presidential emblem on the cuffs.

  10. “We haven’t framed the choice” beautifully sums up why she lost. Many people are getting heartily sick of professional politicians who inhabit a different universe. In my entire life, I haven’t come close to suggesting to colleagues that we need to frame the choice.

  11. Ultimately choice of politicians always comes down to “What this turd needs is more glitter”.

    Voters get to choose whether the glitter is red or blue.

  12. DocBud – “In my entire life, I haven’t come close to suggesting to colleagues that we need to frame the choice.”

    It would make an interesting pick up line – “Hey baby, we need to frame the choice. Right here”

  13. It looks like it could be a worthwhile read, a chance to relive that delicious day when she lost. It was a lot of fun here in Australia because the results came in during the work day so we could watch the steady implosion of the snowflakes and assist its progress with occasional observations as to her total unsuitability to be president.
