The Clinton Campaign's Newest Weapon: Sarcasm

It's been noted here and elsewhere over and over again...the constant gloom-and-doom in the media about Hillary Clinton that just doesn't seem to correspond with what's actually going on.

It seems like every time there's another round of "Hillary is collapsing!!" stories, the next day there's a poll that has her right back to crushing everyone in sight. However, as you might expect, "Hillary rebounds!!" follow-up stories are quite rare indeed.

Which is why this sarcastic post from Clinton campaign Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri in Medium is so satisfying. One sentence sums it up:
Hillary is left in the terrible position of having the most resources of any candidate and being voters’ top choice to be the next President of the United States.
It's good to know that they get it, they are calm, they are confident...and they can laugh about this absurd state of affairs along with the rest of us.


  1. Bill Clinton himself has pointed out more than a few times that there's a narrative about him and his wife, and if something doesn't fit that narrative, it's largely ignored. So they're well aware of the disconnect. Plus, having a sense of humor about is a great response!

  2. This is really a wonderful post.
