An Ambien story.
Probably bullshiat.

After her bullshiat in 2016, she can jump off a cliff for real this time.

Knowing everything that we do now about the misinformation, failures of Democratic outreach, and downright shenanigans surrounding the 2016 election, I'm positively baffled that some people still believe Susan farking Sarandon swayed the election in Trump's favor. If all it takes for you to lose an election to shiathead Trump is Louise from Thelma & Louise, you were clearly not a strong candidate to begin with.

Clinton received millions more votes than Trump. About a hundred thousand votes across three states were the difference in the election because of how stupid our system is.

Oh you mean Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin? Three states with 46 electoral votes that voted for Obama twice and were all blue since '92? I've literally never heard of a single Trump voter in any state, let alone those three, that was going to vote Clinton and changed their mind because of something Susan Sarandon said. The voters in those states voted Trump over Clinton because they either really hate Clinton or just plain hate women, but either way they're not voting for Trump because some Hollywood lib said both candidates are the same.

At least 99.999% of Hollywood took to the streets to express their blazing hate for Trump in a non-stop nationwide parade, but Sarandon's scattering of comments in one interview was what decided the election? Get a grip. The biggest blame for Hillary's loss rests on Hillary herself, that historically rare candidate who was so incredibly incompetent and disliked that she actually managed to lose to Donald "Semi-Sentient Trashbag of Infectious Medical Waste" Trump.

Are we supposed to believe Biden is President now just because Sarandon didn't make any dismissive comments about him? You're ascribing way too much power to someone whose most notable contribution to society was romping around in her underwear while The Time Warp played.

When the "libs" threw their support behind Hillary in 2016, I'd say they owned themselves. Unfortunately it didn't stop there. By failing to oppose Trump with an actual viable candidate, they farked all of us.

It takes a special kind of idiot to continue to defend that.

Technically, she was a good enough candidate to actually win. I'd say that's a pretty good choice to me.

You're saying the Democrats should have done more to counter the all the pro-Trump propaganda, the "But her emails" hit pieces, and Russian psy-ops jobs? Actually they tried but were drowned out by the Facebook/Twitter bots.

Technically she had historically high negatives and was a terrible candidate on paper. In actual practice she proved even worse, mishandling every situation that came her way.

As for all the "It was a conspiracy!" horseshiat, you can stuff that in the same manure sack that Trump carries his "I really won the election!" fertilizer in. Hillary's email "nothingburger" was the result of her actually violating protocol and mishandling classified information (no, it doesn't matter if your supporters have declared your home system just had to be more secure than the federal one. You're still not allowed to copy classified info over to non-classified, unapproved storage. Also, there's exactly zero ways to argue that Anthony Weiner's laptop was super totes secure in any fashion, or that any of Hillary's secure correspondence had any business being on it). Her failure to handle her multitude of scandals, something every candidate has to tackle, doesn't prove she was a victim of insidious forces. It just underlined how much she sucked as a candidate. Trump was able to deflect almost everything thrown at him by whatabouting back at the Clintons, who kept stupidly trying to laugh off their scandals instead of directly addressing them. You might remember that the same approach didn't work for Trump against Biden, because despite how addled and confused Biden occasionally seemed to be, he was still more than sharp enough to fend off Cheetolini's grade school attempts at mudslinging.

Hillary was a garbage candidate who ultimately lost to different garbage. You have to be incredibly biased and self-deluding to give her campaign any credit whatsoever, because it was a disaster from the start and it only got worse. The average Presidential hopeful might have sunk themselves by trying to honor Rosa Parks by seating her at the back of their campaign logo (seriously, who hired that graphic designer?), but Hillary's run was such an endless embarrassment of unforced errors, that's considered one of her least egregious mistakes.

They aren't wrong.

On election day Republican voters quit their biatching and fall in line and pull the GOP lever.

This is not the same for the Left. Making the public angry at the system or disappointed in the candidates in general ALWAYS helps the Republicans. The Left will sit at home if they feel the Democrats were too means to Bernie or Biden has always tried to find a way to compromise. Susan gave ammo to all of the Republicans pushing to demoralize and turn-off the Left. Same with Nader. The Left's lack of discipline is why they lose. They just can't be bothered to get to the farking polls. That is also why the Democrats get creamed in off-year elections (which is why the GOP can do all that gerrymandering - their voters showed up to vote for the state house reps and senators that draw those maps).

Lord Helmet is right. The good guys lose because they are dumb.

This book is incredibly interesting...and incredibly depressing. Her campaign was a total trainwreck of stupidity, arrogance and hubris. The fact that the democrat's basically sat on their hands for 8 years having pre ordained that she would HAVE to be their nominee,and failed to develop any other strategy or alternatives (or bring up a field of new local and national leaders) is just appalling.

2016 was the Futurama trainwreck joke where the solution was to keep sending in more trains. The DNC was deeply beholden to the Clintons for all the money they'd pumped into the party, and setting up what was (supposed to be - thanks for nothing, Bernie) an easy nomination run for Hillary was a way to pay back the favor. Since there had already been a Democrat in the White House for two terms, odds strongly favored a Republican win in 2016, especially since the Dems weren't trying to capitalize on Obama's lingering popularity by running his VP. Swapping to a different candidate, one so divisive that Rush Limbaugh had hoped to get her nominated over Obama back in 2008 to give the GOP an easy win, was practically announcing that they expected to lose anyway, making it a shrewd time to pay off their political debt to Hillary. Her own research showed how weak her chances were, but that should have actually made her a more appealing choice to the party elders. You don't throw away a good candidate on an election you don't think you'll win.

But then Trump emerged from the slime and the whole picture changed. He was an offensive, stupid, uneducated, childish clown who had absolutely no business being on stage with serious political candidates (and also Ted Cruz), let alone pretending to be one, yet somehow he'd crashed the party. Naturally the media adored him, hanging on his every moronic word and giving him an obscene amount of free publicity, and just as Limbaugh had tried to do with Hillary, Hillary's team did everything they could to help boost Trump as a serious contender, because he looked like someone even Hillary couldn't manage to lose to. And when the unthinkable happened and this vile orange blob actually grabbed the Republican nomination, there was little doubt that "Madame President, get used to it" was no longer just a slogan but a pronouncement of the inevitable future.

But then emailgate hit, which she kept foolishly trying to laugh off and dismiss rather than defuse. She scolded BLM protestors. She insisted that all women must be believed, then failed to have a good response prepared for why she'd so vigorously attacked all the women who'd spoken up about her husband over the years. Emailgate reopened after her most trusted advisor's husband got busted for sending explicit photos to underage girls. She didn't bother to campaign in states she considered gimmies. She made so many dumb mistakes, the Republicans never once had to dig into their war chest of earlier Hillary scandals that they were itching to use on her back in 2008. She kept supplying them with brand new material to run with that was much juicier, almost on an hourly basis as the election drew nearer.

It's easy to point out how many things Hillary did wrong in her campaign. The harder question is did she do anything right? She really put in the effort to lose to Trump, and goddamn if that didn't take some effort. I still have trouble believing the Trump Presidency wasn't just an extended gag for Punk'd that spiraled horribly out of control.

The farking morons who ran a candidate so shiatty that Trump looked like a "reasonable" (aka "just as appalling") alternative are also to blame. Maybe even moreso, since they quietly (and not so quietly) boosted Trump's visibility in the early stages to up Hillary's chances by giving her a weaker opponent to run against.

The Democrats' version of Operation Chaos was both far more successful and far more disastrous than Limbaugh's prototype version ever managed to be.

As someone else pointed out above, it took just a small number (relatively) of votes to push Trump into the White House because of this country's farked-up system. She was on several shows during the campaign and her comments were magnified on social media by Bernie diehards. I hold everyone spreading such bullsh*t responsible.

At least 99.999% of Hollywood took to the streets to express their blazing hate for Trump in a non-stop nationwide parade, but Sarandon's scattering of comments in one interview was what decided the election? Get a grip. The biggest blame for Hillary's loss rests on Hillary herself, that historically rare candidate who was so incredibly incompetent and disliked that she actually managed to lose to Donald "Semi-Sentient Trashbag of Infectious Medical Waste" Trump.

Are we supposed to believe Biden is President now just because Sarandon didn't make any dismissive comments about him? You're ascribing way too much power to someone whose most notable contribution to society was romping around in her underwear while The Time Warp played.

I will never stop blaming you and people like you

In other words, "Don't look at the part where I blamed her! Look at the part where I blamed other people too! That makes it different!"

Except it doesn't. Lumping her into a group you hold responsible is still holding her responsible. It's also highly overrating the importance of her expressing her opinion.

As someone else pointed out above, it took just a small number (relatively) of votes to push Trump into the White House because of this country's farked-up system. She was on several shows during the campaign and her comments were magnified on social media by Bernie diehards. I hold everyone spreading such bullsh*t responsible.


You'll hold anyone accountable for Hillary's loss but Hillary herself, and the party elders who greased her path to the nomination knowing full well she was a bad risk. Not surprised.

What you're still willfully ignoring is that it wasn't a "handful of voters" who threw things Trump's way. It was three Democratic stronghold states that flipped red because Trump put in the effort to hardcore campaign there, while Hillary took them for granted and never even bothered to make token appearances. She lost because of her own endless string of clumsy errors and bad judgment calls. The system isn't broken because your candidate lost. Your candidate lost because they didn't play the system correctly.

Hillary wasn't "cheated" any more than Trump was. Both lost fair and square and they did it to themselves. They're just two incredibly poor losers who refuse to acknowledge their own failings.

Knowing everything that we do now about the misinformation, failures of Democratic outreach, and downright shenanigans surrounding the 2016 election, I'm positively baffled that some people still believe Susan farking Sarandon swayed the election in Trump's favor. If all it takes for you to lose an election to shiathead Trump is Louise from Thelma & Louise, you were clearly not a strong candidate to begin with.

Clinton received millions more votes than Trump. About a hundred thousand votes across three states were the difference in the election because of how stupid our system is.


In what state was Sarandon a registered voter? New York? California? Most of the people in those states hated Trump with a passion so there was no risk Sarandon's vote for Stein was going to tip things in his favor. What I was more bothered by was Sarandon's lefter-than-thou attitude toward Clinton supporters which seemed to view voting for Hillary as the equivalent of selling your soul.

"... greased her path." You mean they favored the candidate who'd spent years campaigning for other Democrats across the country vs. a guy who wasn't even a member of the party? A guy who files for the Dem primary in VT to close the path for any other Dem and then runs as an independent? Wow. What assholes they were! In case you were asleep in 2016, she got MORE VOTES than he did.

Her scene with deneuve turned me on to french opera after hearing Lakme.

And yes it turned me on in another way. Nttawwt

I watch Rachel Maddow every weeknight, and I watch Ali when Rachel's off. I think he should get his own show, IMHO.

I can definitively say that the last thing I think about when it comes to Susan Sarandon is Hillary Clinton.

She was the favored candidate, and Bernie was never supposed to present any competition to her. When he surprised the DNC by building up a groundswell of support, they started changing funding rules and anything else they could think of to give Hillary the advantage over Bernie. Apparently you were asleep during 2017, when Elizabeth Warren resoundingly agreed the nomination process was rigged to favor Clinton.

Just looking at the final vote tallies, while refusing to acknowledge all the transparent shenanigans meant to keep Hillary in the spotlight and shut out Bernie at every opportunity beforehand, is either intellectual dishonesty or laziness. Possibly a mixture of both. Hillary didn't take the nom via a fair and unbiased selection process. Quite the opposite.

If you read the book on the Clinton campaign, you'd be horrified to see that they basically said they didn't have to worry about Michigan or Pennsylvania or Wisconsin, they were so sure they were going to win there they didn't even think going there would help, and actually might have cost her votes by reminding some people that they didn't like her. In the weeks leading up to the election people on the ground kept communicating to her campaign manager Steven mook that there was a groundswell to Trump and that Democratic voters were utterly apathetic about Clinton and he dismissed all of the warnings because he was so sure that his God damn computer analytics were right and everyone on the ground was wrong.

Seriously they're a bunch of absolute idiots... And despite all that she was much better than Trump, actually infinitely better. But the fact is she should not have been the candidate. She was so vulnerable and they ignored that vulnerability and look what happened.

cocozilla: Seriously they're a bunch of absolute idiots... And despite all that she was much better than Trump, actually infinitely better. But the fact is she should not have been the candidate. She was so vulnerable and they ignored that vulnerability and look what happened.


"Infinitely better" is the kind of optimistic statement people can cling to because she didn't win, so there's no way to prove how she might have been as a President. We just know we hated Trump enough that we automatically prefer anyone who wasn't President, because someone who did nothing is a clear improvement over anyone who behaved the way he did. (Had she won, however, we'd have been hearing people mutter about how it would have been "infinitely better" if Trump had won instead. We just happen to be in the universe where that doesn't sound the slightest bit likely.)

But she wasn't just vulnerable as a candidate. Her vulnerabilities were almost uniquely tailored to help Trump draw attention away from his own problems.

Got Trump on tape making offensive comments about grabbing women? He can bring out a group of women who say Hillary's husband actually assaulted them.

Trump's threatened with a lawsuit over his phony baloney "university" falsely claiming New York accreditation? He can pivot to Hillary being investigated by the FBI for violating standards for the secure handling of classified intel.

Want to use Trump's "build a wall" rhetoric to show how racist he is? He can counter by running footage of Hillary talking about "superpredators" back when she was cheerleading for a crime bill that disproportionally punished blacks.

At every turn, despite how incredibly repulsive and dishonest Trump was, he had no scandal that the Clintons couldn't directly match or outdo, effectively canceling out many of his own weak spots. He didn't even have to invent anything (not that it stopped him from making up a ton of bullshiat anyway, but he didn't have to).

That wouldn't have worked against Biden. Nor would it have worked against Bernie. But Hillary was the gift that kept on giving for him, because she and her husband had far more commonalities with Trump than differences. It was no coincidence that the Trumps and Clintons ran in so many of the same circles for so many years, including sharing great personal friends like Jeffrey Epstein. Frankly, I think Sarandon called it exactly right. Neither Trump nor Hillary can claim any moral superiority over the other. They're both soulless narcissistic assholes who will always put their own ego ahead of anything else, including the good of the country.
