Vaster Right Wing Conspiracy: Billionaire Dem Donor Tom Steyer Not Ready to Endorse Hillary; Lena Dunham Bothered by Hillary's Attacking of Bill's Victims

The billionaire green activist not sold on Hillary.

Billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer said he is not ready to endorse Hillary Clinton, and he would be open to supporting her main rival, Bernie Sanders, if he becomes the Democratic nominee for president.

Meanwhile, Lena Dunham has privately expressed discomfort with Hillary's roughhouse tactics with Bill's victims.

The NYT notes this illustrates a "deeper debate unfolding among liberal-leaning women" about how to reconcile Hillary's claimed persona of a Feminist Avenger with the reality of her being a Sexist Enabler.

5 When you've lost Lena Dunham .....

Latest NH poll shows Bernie at 60%, Hillary at 33%.

Just one poll, in one state, but it's showing a trend.

If Hillary is this weak against Bernie it's a tell that she's becoming unelectable. Even Debbie W-S should see this.

So who brings her the message that it's over. Will it still be Bill? Oh to be a fly on the wall.

NEW YORK (AP) - A severed barnacle-encrusted penis was found in a dumpster today, shortly after Hillary Clinton announced she was withdrawing from the race for President.

After initial toxicology tests the organ was determined to be infected with numerous toxins and was sealed in a biohazard facility for further study.

Lena Dunham would have been 10 years old in 1996.

I know that's something I keep forgetting. A person who is now in his/her early to mid 20s would have been born in the early to mid 1990's. They have no idea what we mean by the Clinton women scandals. They haven't heard about them. It's within the realm of possibility that Lena Dunham really didn't know what those evil Republicans were saying Hillary did.

Not to defend Dunham, but I think that's something that we tend to forget. Kids These Days were barely alive when Bill Clinton was President. They really do not know any of this.

Posted by: joncelli, Boned like You at January 20, 2016 01:40 PM (RD7QR)


Lena Dunham would have been 10 years old in 1996.

I know that's something I keep forgetting. A person who is now in his/her early to mid 20s would have been born in the early to mid 1990's. They have no idea what we mean by the Clinton women scandals. They haven't heard about them. It's within the realm of possibility that Lena Dunham really didn't know what those evil Republicans were saying Hillary did.

Not to defend Dunham, but I think that's something that we tend to forget. Kids These Days were barely alive when Bill Clinton was President. They really do not know any of this.

Yes, Bernie Sanders is a heck of an insurgent - he has actually more ties to the establishment than Donald Trump has - but if you want someone to personify "corrupt establishment" you could find no one better than Hillary Clinton.

So their fight goes on, mostly unreported, while the GOP fight is front page news. That may be changing now.

180 That Tom Steyer guy is going to be (not) waking up on a park bench w/a small caliber hole in his head. It will be a very scenic, National Park bench, but that will just be window dressing at that point.

183 167 I can't believe some people believe Sanders would ever be elected President. Of course I could be entirely wrong since I never thought Trump would ever have a chance to be President.

And I never thought Obama could be elected potus when he was... twice.
I think Sanders is very beatable, but I would not just laugh him off either, in perfectly sane world I would, but we don't live in one of those anymore. I'd prefer to run against Hillary, from an msm perspective anyway, I think they'll cover for him even more than they'll do so for her and she has more baggage (no that bern doesn't have his own).

yeah, they're protesting "conditions" in the schrools. Yeah? So, who exactly ripped out the copper pipe and sold it for scrap?

186 If you don't think 51%+ of the population will walk over glass to vote for a guy who is promising all that, you don't know 2016 America very well.

I have a 30 ish age relative who works, is responsible, etc. who is ALL in for Bernie. He has bought into Bernie's "going to break up the big banks, rein in Wall Street " schtick.

I want to ask him how Bernie is going to do this. Is he going to wave his magic wand and order the banks to fracture into a a million little banks with a clock outside and toasters for Christmas Club savers?
And the universal health care demon is alive and well in these people. They were upset that Obama didn't force universal health care on us. Now, Bernie, with his magic unicorn and numbers from space is going to ride in and finally bring the USA into the 21st century, which will make our health care system so much better than the it is today, since he believes that Americans die younger than Cubans, or Swedes, etc.

189 150 I'm not saying Sanders WILL win. But he can win, and he has a good shot to win. Yet all I hear from the right is shit like "pffft come on, he can't win because blacks won't vote for him" or "if you compare 1996 and 2004 and blah blah blah he can't win".

All that stuff is ancient history. The country elected Obama. Twice. None of the old rules apply anymore. Which is why Trump and Sanders are where they are.

------------------------------

I will say that in 2008 the Repubs were completely demoralized, doesn't explain 2012. However I do believe that a super large black turn out will not happen for Hillary or Bernie. Every election is different.

191 >>Lena Dunham would have been 10 years old in 1996.

Fair enough - she did live through nightly news of all the sordid details for months.

HOWEVER, if she is willing to publicly claim that Hillary has been historically, unfairly maligned by misogynists blah blah blah she should have some idea of the history. Ideally, since I know that's not really considered required in our just-in-time information, "thanks, Siri for telling me where to buy coffee and googling 'who is Margaret Thatcher?' for me" culture.

192 The libtard blogs are soo much fun to watch these days.. It's total war between Hillary fans and Bernie fans.. HAHHAHAHAHAHAHA

Yes, I've taken a look. It makes me feel a little better after experiencing after the Trump wars. No doubt leftifts lurk on here to laugh at us.

196 O'Malley is a joke, so if you don't want Hillary Bernie's the only way you can register a non-Hillary protest vote. If there were a real field here, Bernie would be running 3rd, or 4th or 5th. Bernie trails Hillary by a lot outside the wacko bird states of Iowa and NH.

Hillary's vast Administration-in-Waiting made sure there would be no credible challengers. It works only so long as you believe Hillary is inevitable. Hillary's still floundering.

Bernie's schtick only plays well inside the Deep Deep Blue State bubble. Hillary can't attack Bernie, but a Trump/Cruz will savage him. If Bernie is the Democratic candidate he'll drag down the ticket in 40 out of the 50 states. Chuck Schumer, peace be unto him, will never run the Senate.

So if Hillary falters, Obama/Jarrett will reluctantly step in with an alternative "for the good of the party and the nation."

197 Someone ought to play the audio again for Lena of Hillary cackling about how she attacked a young rape victim on the stand.

Why does Hillary hate women?

Posted by: pj at January 20, 2016 03:12 PM (cHuNI)

198 Make no mistake, the Steyer billions and the Dunham support will be out in full force if the Hildebeast is nominated.
However, casting doubt right now isn't doing her any favors. If Warren comes out for Bern and crazy Uncle Joe gives him another nod, the Hildebeast nomination is looking shaky.

Posted by: Hank at January 20, 2016 03:21 PM (3rpaY)

199 So Steyer supports Bernie, who would take all his wealth. I'm for that.

Posted by: lynndy at January 20, 2016 04:44 PM (DaWUf)

200 The NYT notes this illustrates a "deeper debate unfolding among liberal-leaning women" about how to reconcile Hillary's claimed persona of a Feminist Avenger with the reality of her being a Sexist Enabler.
Gee. I wonder who got that deeper debate started???

201 A woman who falsely accused a man of rape and also confessed to raping her own sister, but believes accusers should be taken seriously is taking umbrage with another woman who attacked women who credibly accused her husband of rape.

My irony just broke.
