Before we can get into examining the comedic insanity of the left's vindictiveness that serves no purpose but to damage the nation as a whole we have to lay out the facts, the how and why we got here.
From the very begining of this Presidential election season the Democrats had convinced themselves that the results were a forgone conclusion. Sure there were going to some variables and deviations from what they saw as a path of inevitability, that the election itself was going to be a pro forma act. Jan. 20th 2017 was to be Hillary's coronation and as much a finishing act for the American Republic as the rise of Octavian was for the Roman Republic.
But then like the title of the hit Broadway play and movie, "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum". And like that story the Democrat's certainties turned into a tragedy, a travisty and a comedy of errors. Hillary wasn't supposed to face anything but token opposition for the nomination which would allow her to stockpile vast sums of money with which she would simply steamroll over her Republican opponent whomever it might be. Martin O'Malley was supposed to look good but ineffectual. Jim Webb would be the last gasp of whatever conservatism remained in the party and Hillary would roll triumphant into Philadelphia.
