Happy New Year!



2016 was a year of close calls. Here's hoping for clear sailing in 2017, as the Clinton machine gets towed to the scrap yard and Donald Trump begins the work of tearing down Barry's elaborate tinker-toy Leviathan. Good health and prosperity to Paco Nation, and thanks to all my readers and commenters for keeping the place lively.

Thomas Sowell - economist, historian, philosopher and all-around big idea man - is retiring. A brilliant man of many talents, perhaps Dr. Sowell's greatest gift is the ability to convey complex ideas in simple prose that positively shines with crystal clear logic. He will be greatly missed; however, he has created a large body of work that will stand the test of time and will serve to educate future generations (if they are wise enough to heed him).

What a YUUUGE Christmas!



(Via Girls Just Wanna Have Guns)

Update: Democrats facing mass extinction?

Hillary Stassen Clinton

Like a series of increasingly bad horror movie sequels, Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy threatens to stretch out for years, becoming a perennial feature of American politics, if Ed Klein is right.
Hillary Clinton intends to keep her campaign organization together for the next four years and run again for president in 2020.

“She’s convinced that, sooner than later, the voters will come to their senses and realize they made a horrible mistake by putting [Donald] Trump in the White House,” a source close to Hillary told Ed Klein Confidential. “She’s sure the voters will beg her to get in the race and she says, ‘I’m going to run again in 2020.’”
Personally, I'm thinking that eventually Hillary will be physically restrained talked out of this foolishness by her friends and associates. If not, I suppose she'll become the Democrats' Harold Stassen, a Republican who was a more or less serious contender in 1948, but who quickly faded - except in his own mind, ultimately throwing his battered hat in the ring a total of nine times, and becoming little more than fodder for stand-up comics and late-night talk show hosts.

Leftists may have overplayed their hand

Again. John Hinderaker over at Powerline theorizes that the viciousness of the left's attacks on Trump, his family and his supporters has pushed him farther to the right than he might otherwise have been inclined to go.
It was inevitable that the campaign would push Trump to the right. Even under normal circumstances, he would have come under attack by the Democrats, some of it unfair. But the extreme nature of this year’s campaign–the constant slurs against Trump as a racist, an anti-Semite (that one was particularly absurd) and so on, the explicit effort to “de-normalize” him as a candidate and as a President, the idiotic and futile attempt to deprive Trump of his victory by bribing and threatening electors–can only have created in Trump a steely resolve to defeat his enemies (in some cases, his former friends), the liberals.
All I can say is, keep up the good work, haters!

Merry Christmas!



But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law (Galatians 4:4)

President P. Pilate Pussypants closes out his abominable reign by firing one last salvo at Israel

"Obama Administration Allows Anti-Israel UN Resolution Against Settlements to Pass".

I have a quart of "apple pie" - whiskey from the hills of North Carolina, sealed in a Mason jar from which the tax stamps seem to have mysteriously disappeared, seasoned with cinnamon sticks (and which, based on past experience, does indeed possess an aftertaste reminiscent of apple pie) - that I plan on decanting on Obama's last day as president, and I intend to toast the departure of this petulant, ignorant, over-hyped faculty-lounge lizard from the national scene to the extent of as many shot glasses-full as I can put away without falling over.

And thank you, Donald Trump, for sparing us from the horrible fate of having to live under the tyranny of this execrable stick-figure's intended replacement.

Update: Roger Simon condemns the predictable, but nonetheless absurd, attempts by the Left to project their own anti-Semitism on to Trump and his advisers.

Green Party candidate Jill Stein's strange interest in the possibility of voting irregularities in three states Hillary was expected to win is unlikely to lead to any significant change in the results of the election (except perhaps to widen Trump's lead).

No, Hillary's somehow just going to have to find a way to wrap what's left of her mind around the fact that she lost. And she should spare herself the indignity of pressing her nose against the window like an adult version of the little match girl.

Update: Some initial reactions collected by Glenn Reynolds.

Update II: Donald Trump's statement (how sweet it is!)
"Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades. Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.

"While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve.

"Though the tragedies, deaths and pain caused by Fidel Castro cannot be erased, our administration will do all it can to ensure the Cuban people can finally begin their journey toward prosperity and liberty. I join the many Cuban Americans who supported me so greatly in the presidential campaign, including the Brigade 2506 Veterans Association that endorsed me, with the hope of one day soon seeing a free Cuba."
Update III: Compare and contrast: when General Pinochet died, he was described as a "former dictator", practically everywhere. Castro is the "former Cuban leader". The biases of the mainstream press are truly irredeemable.

Economist Paul Krugman (Nobel-winning economist, as the article points out) has Voiced Another Opinion. This time, he states that, with the election of Trump, "We're about to enter, or may already have entered, an era of corrupt governance unprecedented in US history".

Gawrsh, Paul, you mean even more corrupt than Hillary Clinton and her stint at State? More corrupt than her "charitable" foundation's influence peddling?

I suspect that Krugman will wind up being as wrong with this prognostication as he is about everything else.

Haw!
The homeowner, who is in her 70s, told police that she was in bed when she heard a noise in her kitchen.

She went downstairs to check on the noise, only to find an arm reaching in through a window. The victim said “I started scratching, digging at his skin, pushing him, just knocking the crap out of him with my fists.”

The hapless burglar was apparently stuck in the window. Then the woman ran to grab her gun and call 911. Returning to the window, the elderly woman began to beat the intruder with the butt of her gun.
Nice going, Granny! One small quibble, though. If you're going to beat someone with a gun, use the muzzle end; holding the gun by the barrel and using it like a hammer could possibly lead to the gun discharging and injuring you.

Of course, it could be that Old Joe is just trying to sweet talk his way into that ambassadorship to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one.

I passed an acquaintance of mine in the hall today - a rather soft, self-indulgent young fellow who has always struck me as possessing an unearned amount of esteem for his own intelligence - and I greeted him with a routine, "How's it going?" He paused a moment and said, "Ok, I guess. Just enjoying the last two months of America."

As he entered the men's room, I could not suppress murmuring the word "dumbass". Yet this is typical of so many of the bright young things whose knowledge of practically everything was formed within the inside-the-beltway echo chamber. It is doubtless unchristian of me, but I find the absolute shock being experienced by all these (formerly) complacent and smug cogs in the wheel of Leviathan to be extremely gratifying. And who knows? Perhaps a small handful will actually gain some wisdom from recent events.

Philosophical piffle from an intellectualoid

According to Noam Chomsky, "the Republican Party has become the most dangerous organization in world history".

Got that? The most dangerous organization in world history. More dangerous than the Communist Party in the Soviet Union under Stalin, more dangerous than the Chi-Coms under Mao during the Cultural Revolution, more dangerous than Hitler and his Nazis. And why is that? Because Trump doesn't buy into climate change, so he's literally going to create hell on earth.

There's no fool like a man educated beyond his intelligence.

The opening lines of his latest column reek of Brooks's signature elitist obliviousness:
If your social circles are like mine, you spent Tuesday night swapping miserable texts. Not all, but many of my friends and family members were outraged, stunned, disgusted and devastated.
Well, Dave, maybe you need to make your circle a little more inclusive.

And then there's this bit of moral posturing:
[W]e simply don’t yet know how much racism or misogyny motivated Trump voters. It is true that those voters are willing to tolerate a lot more bigotry in their candidate than I’d be willing to tolerate.
On the other hand, "those voters" don't seem to be willing to tolerate the levels of corruption and hypocrisy that you were willing to tolerate in, I presume, hoping for a Clinton victory.

But not to worry, lefties, everything will ultimately work out for the best:
After all, the guy will probably resign or be impeached within a year. The future is closer than you think.
Yes, Dave, yes it is, and when the deteriorating financial performance of the NYT finally results in the transformation of that once great newspaper into a supermarket coupon flyer, I'll be looking for your elegantly written invitations to avail ourselves of the latest bargains on, say, Libby's black-eyed peas or maybe Gordon's fish sticks.

Update: I confess, I went to bed last night around 10:30, fully expecting to wake up this morning and see the news filled with Hillary's smiling zombie face. When the alarm clock went off at 6 am, I reached over, grabbed my cell phone and brought up Drudge on Google and...Wow! Stunning, stunning win. Trump's victory really is an impressive achievement. He had to fight not only the Democratic Party, but the Clintonostra*, the wildly hyper-partisan press, and a not insignificant unit of conservative and moderate NeverTrumpers.

For me, the biggest thrill was seeing the destruction of the Clinton machine. A Hillary victory would have institutionalized and consolidated the corruption that attends her and her circle of ministers-without-portfolio everywhere they go. Plus, I get to keep my guns and maybe even see Obama Care either overturned or "reformed" out of existence. And of course, there's the Supreme Court, the repudiation of Barack Obama's reign of error, the reversal of his executive orders...the list goes on and on.

Vote like the existence of republican government depends on it

Because it does.

I recommend readers to this eloquent post by Veeshir, which exactly matches my own views on the mounting threats to our liberty posed by the Leviathan State, and the necessity of voting down the Clinton criminal syndicate. He also provides valuable historical context; this section of his post, particularly, coincides with my own observations:
Looking back, the 2012 reelection of Obama was different in a momentous way. I would argue that the failure of the American people to reject Obama after seeing his manner of governance may go down in the history books as the beginning of the end [Amen! - Paco]. By the end of his first term, Obama had blown the better part of a trillion dollars on a “stimulus” program that hindered rather than helped, he had retroactively lost the hard-won war in Iraq giving rise to ISIS, and he put about a fifth of the economy into a fascistic program that was designed to fail and is in fact failing spectacularly right now, causing both financial and personal medical turmoil across the land. He got nearly every foreign policy decision wrong, alienated allies particularly the UK and Israel, bent over for the Russians and Iranians, and mucked up Honduras. Despite all this and quite a bit more, the American voters re-elected the bastard.

Home again

I sprung Mrs. Paco from the rehab clinic this morning, and, so relieved was she, you'd have thought that I had liberated her from a P.O.W. camp. She's resting comfortably at home now. Naturally, I took the precaution of warning her that there, er, might be a few little things out of place, since she's been gone for nearly two weeks. Still, I didn't do too bad a job. Sure, the place looks a bit like a hog wallow, but a very high end hog wallow.

Hillary who?

The Atlantic is apparently not just a magazine, but a gathering place for throne sniffers: "Why is Hillary Clinton so widely loved?"

Yeah, whenever I hear this song, I immediately think of Granny Cankles (don't you?)

"Auuugh! The EpiPen just kicked in!"

I missed out on Halloween this year

But Veeshir didn't. Check out this tale of Halloween horror hilarity.

Quote of the week from Ed Driscoll

And it's only Tuesday! "[W]hen you’re the Democrats, you go to war against the American people with the candidate you have".

Update: Longer quote of the week, from Mark Steyn:
Hillary got rich, Bill got laid, republican virtue got screwed. Like the sickly leaders of late-Soviet politburos, both appear older and feebler than their years: once the star performer of the double-act, Bill staggers around like the Blowjob of Dorian Grey; the life has all but literally been sucked out of him. His straight-woman, once the reliably stolid, stone-faced Margaret Dumont of his cigar-waggling routine, now has to be propped up on street bollards and fed lines by her medical staff. When she shuts down and she's out cold, who's driving the pantsuit? Huma? Cheryl? Podesta? Bill and Hillary have been consumed by their urges. America would be electing the Walking Dead, insatiable and fatal to the touch, but utterly hollow.

James Carville goes full Joe McCarthy

Ol' snake-face Carville thinks the ruskies are working with the GOP to derail the Hillary Express.

Of course, Joe McCarthy wound up being right about the general theme of Soviet subversion in the U.S. Carville is simply...nuts.

Farcical, indeed

Victor Davis Hanson, in a typically insightful article on the latest wrinkle in the FBI's investigation of Hillary's rogue server involving Anthony Weiner's lap top (perhaps I should emphasize, I'm talking about his computer), touches on one ostensibly small point that could serve as a hilarious capstone to her history of bad judgement: Hillary is the person "who supposedly fixed Abedin up with Weiner". So, if she loses the election, she would have been the person who planted the seeds of her own downfall.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I don't want, not only this crook, but this idiot anywhere near the White House.

Update: Mark Steyn's invaluable take (H/T: Friend and commenter, Bruce).

Who's up for a lecture on legal ethics by the only Attorney General ever cited for contempt by the U.S. Congress?

Eric Holder. I thought we had heard the last of this notorious political hack, but obviously not.

Apparently, even Comey's wife thought he screwed up

This piece by Ed Klein suggests that there was, indeed, a mutiny going on at the FBI.
He told his wife that he was depressed by the stack of resignation letters piling up on his desk from disaffected agents. The letters reminded him every day that morale in the FBI had hit rock bottom.
And there's also this:
'The people he trusts the most have been the angriest at him,' the source continued. 'And that includes his wife, Pat. She kept urging him to admit that he had been wrong when he refused to press charges against the former secretary of state.
Grain of salt and all that (as there always has to be with unsourced reporting), but this sounds about right.

Update: What the...650,000 emails on this one lap top!?! That's an awful lot of scouring somebody's going to have to do. I guess that nixes the idea that this business can be cleared up before the election.

Update II: Thuggary Clinton - "Leaked Email Shows How Far Hillary Was Willing to Go to SILENCE Trey Gowdy".

As if they didn't generate enough, themselves

"A massive pile of manure was dumped on the doorstep of the Warren County Democrats in Ohio - and police are searching for the culprit.

It sounds like one of those shovel-ready jobs President Obama is always talking about."

Haw! Courtesy of friend and commenter, JeffS.

"Why would she say something that is so flatly untrue?"

Why does the rattlesnake rattle? Why does the dog bark? Why does the shark bite? Because it is in their nature, it is hardwired instinct. Hillary Clinton lies because mendacity is one of the main building blocks of her character, an automatic defense mechanism like the skunk and its anal scent glands.

In the latest example (which may well have been overtaken by other lies in the last 24 hours), Chris Wallace catches Cankles wagging her forked tongue again: "Mook Admits Clinton Lied About Claiming FBI Letter Was Sent Only to Republicans".

Unrelated update: Joe Biden is lucky he's not riding on Hillary's airplane - "If [Trump] wins, I’ll extend a hand,” Biden said. “He would be president of the United States of America, period. I pray that doesn’t happen. I want that [Maniac? Pathological liar? I wonder what he was actually going to say - Paco] — I want Hillary to be president, but whomever is the president is president of the United States of America.”

The problem is...

...that this absurd case should never have gotten as far as the Supreme Court in the first place (and it wouldn't have if Obama hadn't decided to play around with his social justice flamethrower): "Supreme Court to rule on transgender bathroom use".

We got Obama Care because Justice Roberts allowed himself to be intimidated by the Obama administration and its allies in the news media into ruling that something that's not a tax really is a tax. Will he now chicken out again and rule that someone who's not a woman really is a woman?

Let's take a break from politics for a few moments and climb aboard the Super Chief with Count Basie.

Beats me

So, what do you think James Comey is up to in reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails? Five will get you ten that Huma Abedin winds up taking the fall, and probably alone, thereby taking the heat off of Hillary in the days leading up to the election.

On the other hand, it's difficult to see that happening before the election. Maybe Hapless Huma's future indictment is intended to ward off impeachment of Cankles, although it's difficult to imagine a Senate clotted with RINOs ever attempting such a thing in the first place.

Rebellious career agents flexing their muscle? Genuinely new information, different in kind and materiality from the stuff Comey's already written off? Color me baffled.

Iceland shows the way

I could definitely support something called the "Pirate Party".
The Pirate Party, an anti-authoritarian band of buccaneers that wants to shift power from government to people, is one of the front-runners in an election triggered by financial scandal in a country still recovering from economic catastrophe in 2008.
Their philosophy seems to differ considerably from that of our own Pirate Party, known familiarly as "Democrats".


A couple of you lads help Mrs. Clinton onto the plank.

So instead of putting her away in a nice psychiatric clinic...

...her Mamluks want to settle her into the White House.

Oy vey. They ought to be feeding apple sauce to this woman on a long spoon through an aperture in her cell door, but, instead, hey, why don't we just give her the nuke codes?

Pretty expensive golf lesson

President Barack Obama - remember him? - made a trip to Florida to play golf with Tiger Woods at a cost to the U.S. taxpayer of $3.6 million.

My pessimism over the fate of our republic really began accelerating when this 9th rate, glorified ward heeler was elected president. It's now positively red-lining.

Confused and frustrated by this year's wild political scene?

Kurt Schlichter has the (hilarious) wisdom you need.

Hillary Clinton stinks

No, seriously. According to Bill Clinton's alleged former mistress, Dolly Kyle:
“I picked Billy up at the airport and he had this dowdy-looking middle-aged woman with him … this woman was Hillary,” Kyle said. “Hillary, I thought was a Hillary impersonator. Because she looked so bad and she smelled so bad I just didn’t believe this was Hillary.”

Hillary’s bad odor and unkempt appearance were what Kyle claimed she remembered most, thinking Bill Clinton was playing some sort of “sick joke” on her.

“I couldn’t imagine why Billy would haul such a person in the plane with him in public. She was wearing a misshapen, brown, dress-like thing that must have been intended to hide her lumpy body. The garment was long, but stopped too soon to hide her fat ankles and her thick calves covered with black hair,” Kyle said.

“I noticed that the woman emitted an overpowering odor of perspiration and greasy hair. I hoped that I wouldn’t gag when she got in my car. The sandal-shod woman with lank, smelly hair stood off to the side and glared at everyone.”
There are many reasons why Hillary Clinton is unfit to be president, and not the least important one is her essential weirdness.

There goes the neighborhood

Mrs. Paco acquired an interesting new neighbor at the hospital where she is recovering from surgery.

I walked out of her room this morning to go get some coffee, and happened to glance in the room next to hers. There was a scruffy looking patient wolfing down his breakfast, and a security guard sitting in a chair in the doorway watching him. On my way back, I noticed a couple of Deputy U.S. Marshals hanging around outside of the same guy's room. All I know for sure is that the patient is not a member of the DNC or one of Hillary's PACs; otherwise, John Law wouldn't be anywhere in sight.

Fake Republican Colin Powell announces he will vote for Hillary

I guess when he said that she was greedy, overly ambitious and not transformational, he meant that in a good way.

Update: On second thought, maybe Colin Powell is what passes for a "real" Republican these days, and the rest of us simply make up the illegitimate "deplorable" wing.

"We owe the system nothing"

Kurt Schlichter is positively on fire with this denunciation of all the crocodile tears being shed over Trump's reluctance to issue a blanket, unqualified statement that he will accept the results of the election.
We owe the system nothing. Nada. Zip. Instead, the system owes us fairness and honesty, and without them it has no right to our default acceptance of its results. That acceptance must be earned. This means that the system must aggressively police its own integrity, and this year it has utterly failed to do so.
When democracy becomes a tool in the hands of a self-appointed ruling class, when the democratic system is used to undermine individual liberty, then something's got to give - and, if we're to hang on to the kind of country our founders envisioned, it ain't gonna be be liberty.

Unfunny Sunday

Mrs. Paco got dragged off her feet while walking the dog today and broke her hip. She's scheduled for surgery tomorrow morning, so I'll be offline for a few days most likely. Prayers for her speedy recovery would be appreciated.

Update: Mrs. Paco developed some cardiac issues after the surgery (including a heart rate of 200 beats a minute). They got her stabilized, but are keeping her in the ICU overnight for observation. Possibly related to the surgery (the surgeon wound up doing a complete hip replacement).

Great! Another promotion!!

I've now ascended another rung on the ladder of pejoratives from "deplorable" to "scum of the earth" (next stop: "just as bad as Hitler").

Well, I don't know that I'd call it an "open" revolt

I'm delighted that so many FBI agents are disgusted with their chief's handling bungling fixing of the investigation of Hillary Clinton's criminal mishandling of emails; however, I'm pretty much with Veeshir on this: "Quit whining at us about how you’re all mad. We’re mad too. And we’re the ones who are the most boned. We’re the ones the gov’t is going to send you after now that they know you’re a bunch of Hillary!’s Bitches and will only whine anonymously about shitting on the rule of law."

It's rather as if Fletcher Christian and the crew of the Bounty simply chalked some anonymous graffiti on the quarter deck ("Captain Bligh is a Poopy Head"), rather than actually put the man off the ship.

Now, I don't mean to understate the dangers of openly challenging the FBI director: it would probably mean having to resign, first, and public condemnations might, in any event, get agents in trouble for violating the non-disclosure agreements they were compelled to sign. But doing the right thing sometimes requires personal sacrifice and taking some risks and if the Bureau has become as hopelessly politicized and tainted with corruption as many (if not most) of the agents claim, then it's not unreasonable to expect at least a couple of genuinely patriotic FBI employees to step forward and openly say so. Otherwise, they are, however reluctantly, "just following orders", in which case their protestations are useless.

I'm back (sort of)

We went down to Virginia Beach to visit my older son, and what excellent timing! Left Northern Virginia Saturday morning just in time to catch the wake of the hurricane which flooded much of Virginia Beach and knocked out power all over the place. Also, I'm apparently so out of shape that I got tendonitis just screwing curtain rods into the wall; my right hand is practically useless (which worries me, since that's my shooting hand). So, posting may be limited due to the fact that I'm typing mainly with my left hand.

Meanwhile, the election draws near and we're looking at the real possibility of a Clinton presidency. I imagine she'll wind up being a kind of pantsuited Robert Mugabe if she gets in. Sad times for the dear old Republic.

BTW, couldn't get away from Cankles even at a Bojangles fast food joint. The restaurant had a television mounted on the wall and Fox News was providing live coverage of Clinton making a speech in Florida. The typical loud, robotic, hectoring style; and there, standing next to her, looking like a well-dressed cigar store Indian, was Al Gore.

Hillary Clinton, nasty piece of work

Secret Service agents discuss crabby grandma.

Heck of a job, Jimmy!

"FBI agents are ready to revolt over the cozy Clinton probe".
Comey has turned a once-proud institution known for its independence into one that bows to election pressure, hands out political immunity to candidates and effectively pardons their co-conspirators. He’s turned the FBI into the Federal Bureau of Immunity and lost the trust and respect of not only his agents but the country at large. He ought to step down.
Are you crazy? We're probably looking at Hillary's first Supreme Court nominee.

Right hand man turns out to be more of a left hand man

Secretary of Defense Ashe Carter's top military aide was quite the playah on the taxpayer's dime.
Maj. Gen. Ronald F. Lewis, U.S. Army, was abruptly fired from his position as special assistant to the secretary of defense last November. An investigation by the Pentagon’s inspector general now confirms allegations against Lewis, including a visit to an off-limits club on “Hooker Hill” in Seoul, South Korea, charging taxpayers for $400 bottles of champagne at a strip club in Rome, and making unwanted advances to female subordinates.

That's not the anatomical analogy I would have used, but it'll do

Please learn to use your inside voice.

I confess: two of my biggest reasons for hoping for a Trump victory are (1) to watch all the liberal heads imploding at the agency where I work, and (2) to see Hillary Clinton's concession speech. I really don't believe she'll be able to pull it off without something like this happening...

Just another flare-up of Obama's racial-healing legacy

A shooting in Charlotte, NC (black cop/black suspect) has resulted in protests riots. And what would the pursuit of social justice be without the shedding of innocent blood?

I talked to Bro Paco yesterday on the telephone; he lives near the little town of Midland, maybe ten miles or so outside of Charlotte in a rural area, but just off of a major state road that runs right into the city. He reported (in a rather wistful tone of voice, it seemed to me) that no rioters had shown up in his neighborhood. Probably a good thing for both him, and especially for any troublemakers, that this was the case, since I believe his home defense tools include considerably more than merely a baseball bat and pepper spray.

Update: More from Zero Hedge.

Of course

No guns were involved in the recent terrorist events in New York and New Jersey, and any admission of terrorism might underscore an Islamic connection and the administration's slack immigration policy, so mum's the word for Obama.

Correction: Turns out a gun was involved: The Chelsea bomber shot it out with police, before being wounded and taken into custody. Two police officers were also wounded, and we pray that they recover quickly.

So, it looks like the Left will get its chance to denounce gun violence after all.

The Vatican's chief exorcist has died at age 91.

One particularly ominous observation from Father Amorth, made last year: "Biblically speaking we are in the last days and the beast is working furiously".

As usual, it's all about him

Obama sees the likelihood of decreasing black support for Hillary as a "personal insult".

Why? Blacks have fared particularly poorly during Obama's two terms, and there's absolutely nothing in Hillary's program that offers anything but more of the same. Besides, Barry's statement strikes me as overtly racist, just more of the melanin-über-alles shtick that Democrats have been peddling for decades.
