An example of a failure to think things through?
Sanders supporters shower Clinton motorcade with dollar bills
A group of around 100 Bernie Sanders supporters showered Hillary Clinton’s motorcade in 1,000 single-dollar bills as the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate drove to a fundraiser with George and Amal Clooney on Saturday.
Howard Gold, who lives down the street from Clooney in Los Angeles’ tony Studio City neighborhood, hosted the group of Sanders supporters for a $27-a-person fundraiser. As part of that event, Gold and other organizers handed out $1 bills for attendees to throw at Clinton as she drove by.
This protest method reminds me of when the geniuses at RedState sent bags of rock salt to U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe’s Maine office in October 2009. The rock salt probably came in handy that winter.
I can understand why the Clinton motorcade didn’t stop and hoover up the cash – optics! But did the campaign dispatch a minion to collect the money later? Donations are donations, and every little bit helps!
Hillary Clinton Caps Great Statement with Terrible Closing Line
Hillary Clinton appeared on ABC’s “This Week” this morning. She was asked about Trump’s attacks on her character and made the following statement:
“What I’m concerned about is how he goes after everybody else. He goes after women. He goes after Muslims. He goes after immigrants. He goes after people with disabilities. He is hurting our unity at home,” Clinton said. “He is undermining the values that we stand for in New York and across America. And he’s hurting us around the world. He can say whatever he want to say about me. I really could care less.”
No, no, no, NO! If you COULD care less, that means you care a little, even if it’s only a tiny amount. But you don’t care at all what the hirsute, ambulatory Circus Peanut says about you, Hillary Clinton, so you couldn’t care less.
Oh well. She’s not alone; millions of English speakers make that same annoying error.
Open thread. And fresh sandbox for the indefatigable Hilldo vs. BernBro combatants still scrolling through last night’s loooog comment section!
