I'm sure this article by Jill Abramson in the Huffington Post, caught the Clinton Campaign completely by surprise. It explains how Hillary isn't actually dishonest, but just seems that way because of some personality something-or-other. And she gets more scrutiny than others, not because of anything she has said or done, but because she's a woman. In case you had missed that point. Certainly, I can't think of any other reason she would come to the attention of critics. It must be her sex, because all the other possibilities have been clearly eliminated. Ms Abramson worked briefly on a Bill Clinton campaign decades ago - which is presented something of a coincidence - before going on to become executive editor of the NYTimes. What are the odds, eh?
Expect to see more of this, as Hillary's supporters keep trying to find the magic explanation which convinces some significant portion of waverers that they are really not bad people and supporting corruption by voting for here. We saw similar attempts to show us that Barack Obama is not really a narcissist who doesn't care what other people's opinions are, but just sorta private and aloof. And who can forget the resurgence of the 1992 articles about Bill Clinton being a Southern Baptist along about 1998 or so, with a little twist to make it fresh and new.
I'm sure Huff Po ran articles explaining how we were misunderstanding Mitt Romney, and John McCain, and Sarah Palin, but I can't bring them to mind at the moment. There must be someone in their slate of writers who is currently assigned to digging into the data, thinking hard, and explaining to us why Donald Trump isn't actually an irresponsible blowhard, he just looks that way. For some Reason. If not HuffPo, then surely somebody else.
Yet I want to draw your attention to something else in the form of these explanations. They follow a pattern of social rather than logical argument, which I have noted is common among a certain type* of liberal. They do not spend much time counterarguing anything, they promise to take you behind the curtain. Those yahoos out there think she's a liar, but you look like a bright young woman. I'm going to bring you back where the important people go - love your shoes, dear - because I believe you can understand what those others can't.
*Not so much the poor, or union, or black, or corporate Democrats, if you get my drift.
