All other considerations aside, that was an excellent 'click-baity' title, just as you promised in the "reopened email investigation" thread! Well done!!!

Nice try, Beej, but you need a clickbaity disclaimer under your post like the Huff Post on every Trump article:

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

Back when Hillary was coasting to a Senate seat win in 2006, she sat down with the editorial board of the Jewish Press for a discussion. The tape of that pow-wow was never released until today! In it, Hillary describes the respect she has for the will of the people when it comes to electing their chosen representatives. Here's her quote on the Palestinian elections:

Quote:
“I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake,” said Sen. Clinton. “And if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.”


As we can see with her campaign's actions with PACs, she's going to do all she can to not repeat that mistake.


As opposed to the ongoing GOP voter suppression we se in Notth Carolina, Indiana and Green Bay, and the threats of voter intimidation from Roger Stone.

Thanks for this latest bit of alt right idiocy. You guys are always good for a laugh. Come Election Day you might not find it too funny. Congrats on you continued effort to destroy the GOP and discredit the right/conservatives in the US. You are doing a heck of a job

Keep up the good work!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one that noticed them doing that on every...single...trump...article.

I know this is going to come as a shock to many righties, but most people believe you can determine who's going to win an election by looking at poll results ahead of time.

There is a huuuuuuge difference in knowing who is going to win (ie. "reading the polls") and DETERMINING who is going to win (especially when it involves foreigners getting involved) by actually getting involved.

That is how I read her quote initially - as though we should have "determined" who the winner would be by manipulating either the input or the output of the election itself.

But now I can also see what you are saying - that her quote was "look, we should have found a way to determine who the winner would be by researching the "polls" beforehand". Which is entirely less nefarious.

I will give Clinton the benefit of the doubt on this one, and just chalk it up to me not quite reading it properly.

Or maybe it was nefarious... whistle

Wait, no, that's not "casual racism". That's "cultural appropriation". Get your "Pre-Authorized Terms of the Perpetually Aggrieved" (PATPA) straight my friend.

Yeah--that's the way the author wants you to interpret it, and so the quote is presented with the context removed. Maybe that is what she meant--I don't know--but the way it's written makes me think it's a deliberate misrepresentation.

You made my click the link (which I didn't do originally, I just read BJ's snippet because I am a lazy mother-f*&ker). I see the disclosure. At least he was honest enough to put it there.

Wait! What?! Are you saying there is more than one way to interpret her comment about the Palestinian election? Non contextualized comments should ALWAYS be read in isolation.
