In the classic baseball poem, Casey at the Bat, when the “mighty Casey” carried his timber and excessive confidence to home plate, it was inevitable he would swing his way to victory and emerge as Mudville’s hometown savior … until he didn’t. Instead, he struck out. And there was no joy to be had in Mudville.
I have never bought into the vastly popular notion of Hillary Clinton being the inevitable Democrat presidential nominee come November. Liberal media hounds (a.k.a. the ‘mainstream media’) seem eager enough, gleefully celebrating Mrs. Clinton’s status as the first female ‘presumptive’ presidential nominee of a major U.S. political party. Even President Obama has chimed in with his endorsement today of Mrs. Clinton, someone he quietly loathes.
The liberal establishment declines, however, to notice another first for Hillary and the Democrats. She is on the verge of becoming the first presidential nominee of a major U.S. political party to achieve such status while under investigation by the FBI, and under serious, perhaps imminent, threat of criminal indictment for espionage and official corruption.
What a first that would be!
It is such an insane notion, in fact, that talk has resurfaced recently of Democrat puppet masters pulling Joe Biden and/or Elizabeth Warren out of their holes in order to deny Bernie Sanders the nomination and, thus, keep the Democrat party from disintegrating.
We shall see. But let us not be gleeful. As America becomes Mudville, there is no joy.Follow @PolitiQuick
