So she's not part of the establishment because she's a woman? She got applause for that? Seriously?

Hillary Clinton just suggested she’s not ‘establishment.’ Come on.

The whole thing devolved into one of those Volume Level 10 stretches of the debate. But first, Hillary Clinton started off low and slow — as if to say, 'I am a serious as a heart attack here, America.' Here's how the Democratic debate exchange between Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), MSNBC debate moderator Rachel Maddow and the former secretary of state began:

SANDERS: So, Rachel, yes, Secretary Clinton does represent the establishment. I represent, I hope, ordinary Americans, and by the way — who are not all that enamored with the establishment. But I am very proud to have people like Keith Ellison and Raul Grijalva in the House, the co-chairmen of the House Progressive Caucus.

CLINTON: Well, look, I've got to just jump in here because, honestly, Sen. Sanders is the only person who I think would characterize me, a woman running to be the first woman president, as exemplifying the establishment. And I've got to tell you that it is ...

(APPLAUSE)

the only non establishment candidates are Trump, Carson, and Carli.

She's non establishment because she's a woman?

I loved it last week when she lied and said that she has always been for gay marriage. Also that she has always stood up for women's rights. Unless you are assaulted by her husband.

The Hag is the cheapest politician money can buy. Just ask George Soros.

Hillary hate is always fun, but Bernie's really running as Eugene McCarthy. It's really reached a curious spot in both party's where the game should be getting serious. Hillary's legitimacy is that she's the only candidate running with an actual chance of preserving women's right to choose, universal care and getting a debt deal too. She's establishment, but she's part of the progressive establishment. She's failing to make her case for Bernie's illegitimacy, but it's tricky because doing so may make her appear as some of these voters' mean mother who forced them to turn off the tv and finish their homework.

Liberals are always amusing. they did the same with Obama.
Trump ignores GOP rivals, swings at Obama

She lied/contradicted/presented so many fallacies in the first hour, I had to quit watching.
Maddow - "Obama sent 4K+ troops back into Iraq
corrupt cankles response - "I am with Obama no more troops in Iraq" or something to that effect..
Then, I noticed she repeated "I will get things done" repeatedly. Yet, when referencing her past accomplishments, it was "it failed but" "we didn't succeed but"...

Hilly is playing word games again. God help us if Hilary actually was part of the "establishment". It would mean that the establishment was as corrupt as a psychotic woman who spent her entire adult life covering up her husband's abuse of women and threatening any woman who was molested by her husband. What she is trying to say is that she is not a moderate politician. In that venue she is correct. She is as far left politically as she can go without falling off the charts with Bernie.

So Hillary is exempted from Establishment status because she has a pair of floppy boobs? OMFG she is the most establishment candidate, next to Jebby of course.

Not really.

What makes you establishment, IMHO, is weather or not you are touting the party line and falling in line with what the party wants. Bernie obviously does not fit that bill.

Shrillary Ain't the First!

She stands up there on stage and claims she isn't “establishment” because she's the first woman to run for president. What bull crap. Before doing the Google Search, I already knew it was just one more of her endless lies. Here's the list:

Victoria Woodhull in 1782 with the Equal Rights Party

Gracie Allen in 1940 with the Surprise Party

SHIRLEY CHISOLM on 1972 with the DEMOCRATS (I certainly remember her)

Linda Jeness in 1972 with the Socialist Workers Party

Jill Stein in 2012 with the Green Party

So, why hasn't Bernie taken her to task for yet another falsehood? And, why is nobody bringing up this New York Times article on the subject @ 5 Other Women Who Ran For President

Hillary's pathological lying has passed the threshold of mere lying and passed into the realm of comic absurdity.
