Bless Chas Pierce for saying this forcefully. We MUST have Hillary's back.

I watched the talking heads take her words apart and distort the hell out of them after her commencement address at Wellesley and at the Codecon. Where I saw, once again, a highly rational thinker expressing herself intelligently and dispassionately, they insisted once again on a narrative that she was bitter, relitigating, rehashing, not taking personal responsibility, and on and on ad nauseum.

What it boils down to is: Be Ashamed of Yourself, Hillary, and SHUT UP and GO AWAY.

Once again folks: She won by 3 million votes even after gerrymandering, voter suppression, and ethnic cleansing of voter rolls. She won by 3 million votes even after our election was hacked in what amounts to an Act of War.

And the majority of the media pundits want her to STFU about this cancer eating our body politic. They want to make it all about her, and she is trying to make people understand that it is NOT all about her.

Are we going to let them do this to her? Are we going to let them do this to America?

Not just no, but Hell No. Let's all vow to have her back -- and be vigilant even at DU.

We have to have her back. Every time she speaks out, in any venue, there is an outcry of "Shut Up!"

Oh sure, what the media, the GOP, and some Dems SAY is: "She shouldn't whine about the election she lost. Rehashing. Relitigating. That's just such bad optics." Rinse, repeat. What every single one of them MEANS is: "The little lady needs to sit down and shut the hell up. Shutupshutupshutupshutup."

All I have to say to that is Hell No. All of us need to bear in mind that a lot of people want her to be silenced and invisible. To hell with them all.
