Hillary sexism alert! Voters say they 'really like and admire me' - won't vote for me 'because I'm a woman'

Always a victim. 

For Hillary Clinton, a 30-year achievement-free career has necessitated a laundry list of excuses. Since she will never take responsibility for her own failures, these explanations amount to little more than a laundry list of lies. Chief among the untruths are a series of fables designed to paint her as the eternal victim - an honest, genuine, woman whose best efforts are consistently dismantled by a legion of malicious haters.

These days, her 'best efforts' are being directed toward attracting voters.  And yet, Bernie Sanders continues to nip at the hem of her Mao Tse-Tung outerwear, threatening to damage or undo her coronation. Since she can't admit the reality of her situation - that she's a terrible candidate who's being widely rejected by her own party - she needs a bit of fiction to explain away her failings.

That means it's time again to play the sexism card. As she told New York Magazine, everyone loves her. They want to vote for her. But they're having trouble following through on their desires - because she's a woman.

The sexism is less virulent now than it was in 2008, she said, but still she encounters people on rope lines who tell her, “?‘I really admire you, I really like you, I just don’t know if I can vote for a woman to be president.’ I mean, they come to my events and then they say that to me.”

But, she maintains, “Unpacking this, understanding it, is for writers like you. I’m just trying to cope with it. Deal with it. Live through it.”

Here, Clinton laughed, as if living through it were a hilarious punch line.

Let's take Hillary's advice and "unpack" this so we can "understand" it.

It's completely unbelievable, sounds like it's an utter fabrication, and you can bet the kids' lunch money that it never happened in any legitimate way.  Not once.  If, by some miracle, something like this was said, it was probably set up by her own people to give her ridiculous claims some traction.  

How's that for "unpacking it?"

Hillary is not a victim of sexism.  She's not a "victim" of anything except, perhaps, a philandering husband.  If voters are refusing to support her, it's not because she's a woman. It's because she spent the last 30 years incinerating their faith and goodwill.

People refuse to support Hillary Clinton because her past actions have taught them precisely who and what she is.  It has nothing to do with her gender.
