“I like the 2-party system and it worries me that the Democrats don’t seem to be interested in being that second party. You identify their problem exactly–they cannot learn. That, of course, is because they have defined themselves as the smart ones. So anyone who thinks differently is, necessarily, not as smart. And smart people don’t learn from dumb people, right? No, it has to be the other way around (but those stupid deplorables can’t pull their heads out of the sand!). ” [my emphasis]

But I thought from the beginning that her declaration of the test, with a 6th generation or 10th generation ancestor, was a mistake from the beginning. Having quantified her Indian ‘heritage’ at 1/1024 (the lowest number which her opponents would be sure to emphasize), it is too easy a target for her opponents. Having seen the reaction since her announcement, even from her erstwhile allies, I sincerely wonder “What was she thinking?”
Old CW: Love Trumps Hate.
New CW: Love permitted only under Hillary’s terms.
I am beginning to think that Trump has brainwashed her because her statements are so counterproductive.
Then walks remark back. The governor is not nearly as smart as he thinks he is.
I also see this as a parallel to Sec. Hillary Clinton’s remark about ‘deplorables’. After spending so much time in the bubble with likeminded associates, you get desensitized to demeaning phrases, you say them all the time and all agree, and then one day forget to keep it to yourself.
