Hillary Blames Self-Hating Women For Her Loss [Watch]

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Hillary Clinton has granted her first public interview since losing the election. It came on April 6 at the Women in the World Summit, organized by leftist editor Tina Brown. Clinton was introduced by comedian Samantha Bee. On cue, as expected, she gushed: "You deserve to hear it 100 times — it should have been you."

The assignment to interview Clinton fell to New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof. He later wrote a column on his Hillary chat, beginning by saying: "In the most wrenching, humiliating way possible, Hillary Clinton has been liberated. She is now out of the woods again, and speaking her mind."

And why not? The path is marked by rose petals dutifully placed by her equally humiliated legions in the press.

It was "humiliating" to lose to Donald Trump — that lout. Clinton was the anointed one, and as the press told us, she was the most qualified presidential applicant since Thomas Jefferson. So the feminists at this conference wanted to know: Why do Americans hate women so deeply? What the hell is wrong with those self-hating white Republican women?

This was the kind of challenging "question" Kristof lobbed at Clinton: "This is a women's empowerment conference, so I have to ask. You know, fundamentally, a man who bragged about sexual assault won the election and won 53 percent of the white women's vote. How is it that in the 21st century — and what does it say about the challenges that one faces in women's empowerment — that in effect, misogyny won with a lot of women voters?"

Clinton loved the question. It's the kind of softball she's been served her entire career. "Certainly, misogyny played a role," she declared. "I mean, that just has to be admitted." She and Kristof mulled over what he called "abundant social science research" that says we admire men for being ambitious and successful but find women "less likable" when they are powerful.

So here we are, five months after the election, and the best analysis these people can muster sounds exactly like ... the last weekend of the campaign. Then-President Barack Obama used this argument as his closer: Don't be a sexist! He said: "I want you to think about it because she is so much better qualified than the other guy. She has conducted herself so much better in public life than the other guy."

The Reagan Tax Cuts Worked

Thanks to "bracket creep," the inflation of the 1970s pushed millions of taxpayers into higher tax brackets even though their inflation-adjusted incomes were not rising. To help offset this tax increase and also to improve incentives to work, save, and invest, President Reagan proposed sweeping tax rate reductions during the 1980s. What happened? Total tax revenues climbed by 99.4 percent during the 1980s, and the results are even more impressive when looking at what happened to personal income tax revenues. Once the economy received an unambiguous tax cut in January 1983, income tax revenues climbed dramatically, increasing by more than 54 percent by 1989 (28 percent after adjusting for inflation).
