Once Again, Media Ignores All Parts of Debate That Favored Trump to Zero In On the Two Parts That Favored Hillary

The "two storylines" that emerged from this debate, as MeAgain Kelly beamed joyously last night, are 1, Trump's aside "Such a nasty woman" and 2, Trump's refusal to say he'd "accept" the results of the election.

As to the first: Trump said this in direct response to a cheap-shot insult -- one that Hillary laughed as she delivered, turning it from a common political attack into an attempt to humiliate through mocking laughter.

Defending her sham Social Security scheme, she said she'd raise taxes on the wealthy to pay for it, then added in a chuckling quip, "I'm sure you'll find ways to avoid paying it, Donald," or something like that.

Apparently there are a lot of women, including lots of women who don't call themselves liberal feminists -- MeAgain Kelly and half of the online female "conservative" commentariat, for starters -- who actually think that a woman is allowed to insult a man to the accompaniment of a witch's mocking cackle and the man is not allowed to say anything more than "I agree with you, Thee of the Superior Sex."

Go fuck yourselves, women (and some men) who think this way. You're not superior and you have no special rights and privileges, and men do not have a special requirement to defer to you in all things.

People who claim these things seem to be trying to vindicate some personal, at-home domestic issue -- "My husband is such a useless cad!" -- through their political agitation.

You have two choices, ladies: You can either compete in the hard world, or you can keep to the soft world. You cannot go out into the hard world, and in fact employ the tactics of the hard world like insult and mockery, and then demand to be treated by the rules of the soft world.

That's not feminism -- that's infantilism. Learn the difference. The only man in the world obligated to treat you like Daddy's Little Girl is your actual Daddy.

As to the claim that Trump is destroying the Republic by refusing to say in advance that he'd "accept" the results of the election -- Hillary Clinton said in 2002 that George W. Bush had been "selected, not elected" and just this week Hillary nodded and clapped and smiled along with a crowd shouting to Al Gore YOU WON! YOU WON! YOU WON!

As Larry O'Connor points out in that piece, much of Gore's subsequent speech on Hillary's behalf strongly implied he'd actually won the election, but not by enough votes that the Supreme Court was chastened from stealing it from him. And Hillary clapped merrily along.
