Origin of Left & Right...I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the right" and Liberals are called the "left".By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV) - "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left."Thus sayeth the Lord. Amen.
And lo, it came to pass: As of last night, Hillary Clinton is officially the Democratic Party's presumptive nominee for President of the United States. Setting aside her party's elite "super delegate" insurance policy, Clinton has now secured a majority of pledged delegates, which reflect the will of primary voters.
And despite falling to Bernie Sanders in a startling 23 nominating contests, the former Secretary of State has attracted roughly 3.7 million more votes than the Vermont Senator nationwide.
Having lost the election by every metric, the disheveled Soviet Union honeymooner says he'll fight on to the party's Philadelphia convention anyway, marking just the latest instance of a Socialist ignoring simple math that complicates his untenable fantasies.
The fact that Clinton failed to clear this hurdle until the very last day of balloting underscores her profound weakness as a candidate.
She enters the general election stage of the campaign as one of the most disliked and distrusted political figures in America, and one of the least popular presidential nominees of all time. Despite his even uglier public image and endless parade of divisiveness and insults, the Republican nominee-in-waiting only trails her by an average of two percentage points at this stage of the race, inside the margin of error.
Several weeks ago, a Democratic operative basked in the afterglow of Donald Trump's effective nomination victory, crowing on Fox News that the GOP had selected "exactly the candidate they deserve." Ironically, both Trump's strong backers and detractors on the right would likely agree with this statement, albeit for different reasons.
This week, the same formulation applies to the Democrats. They've chosen the corrupt, opaque, power hungry, self-serving, aloof, greedy, politically soulless, congenital liar they so richly deserve
