Oh, how the worm has turned. From coast to coast, Democrats’ fear that Hillary Clinton may lose to Donald Trump is growing by leaps and bounds.
They were panicked at the post-Emmy Awards parties. (And let’s hope all those celebrities now promising to flee the country if Trump wins, actually do so.)
Clinton supporters should be worried. Trump is surging, while Hillary is sinking, as shown by the packed stadiums wanting to see The Donald, and the empty chairs greeting Clinton. (Clint Eastwood must be chuckling.)
The clearest — and most hilarious — sign of the Left’s desperation over Hillary’s fading prospects, though, comes courtesy of the Huffing-and-Puffington Post, which ran an article titled “Why Hillary Lost: a Premature Obit,” in which the writers outline all the people and circumstances Democrats will blame, rather than Clinton, the day after the election, should she lose.
The list is probably pretty accurate, but the most telling thing about the article is it took no less than three — count ’em, three — paid editors to cobble the article together. When the HuffPuff — which skates on the backs of idiot writers willing to fill their site just in exchange for “exposure” — actually pays someone, you know the situation is critical. When it pays three people … start building an ark, cuz the waters they are a-risin’.
As the HuffPuff writers said, “If Donald Trump does sack the fortress, no one who lost the battle will want to admit it was Hillary Clinton’s fault. It will have had nothing to do with, say, ‘transparency’ or calling bearded villagers ‘deplorables’ or the Iraq War vote or the simple fact that middle-of-the-road Clintonism ran out of gas as a public philosophy.”
It wasn’t so many weeks ago that all the major media outlets seemed to be crowning Hillary Clinton the winner of the 2016 presidential election. America was assured that the former secretary of state had it all locked in, that Trump could never win, short of a nuclear apocalypse.

Following ongoing, repeated revelations about Clinton’s emails while at the State Department, supplemented by an avalanche of information hacked, stolen, leaked or embezzled from the Clinton Foundation, the FBI investigation, the Democratic National Committee, and even the Dark Lord of the Sith himself, George Soros, Clinton has been on one long slippery slide down toward the ash heap of history.
As if her shady past political decisions and activities, and money-grubbing for her family’s foundation, weren’t enough to turn off sane voters, her pattern of compulsive lying about her health has come back to bite her as fewer and fewer people still believe that her repeated collapses, coughing fits, brain “short circuits,” confusion in the middle of speeches and inability to climb stairs are simply dehydration, flu or pneumonia — whatever the disability of the day is, according to her camp.
Add in a few dismal performances since her 9/11 collapse, in which she has insulted conservative Americans, and ludicrously accused Donald Trump of treason and giving aid to ISIS — the same ISIS that she and President Obama helped create, armed and funded — and it’s no surprise her poll numbers are going down.
Some of the most sycophantic media are trying to say she and Trump are tied and that she will still pull the election out of the bag, but the more reliable polls have Trump’s lead growing, and even counters of the all-important Electoral College have begun to concede that Trump may have an edge.
There is still more than a month till the actual election, and Hillary’s staff have no doubt shot her up with prescription drugs and vitamins, along with keeping a supply of sharp sticks on hand to poke her with, should she blank out during another campaign event. There is a diminishing possibility she could win.
But the rats are sensing a sinking ship, and frankly, it can’t go under fast enough for the rest of us.
