1. No one "hacked" into any voting machine or any device that actually determined the outcome of the election.2. No one "hacked" any e-mails, rather, idiots like John Podesta responded to stupid phishing e-mails saying, "Comrade! We are from Yahoo! You need to change your password! CLICK HERE!" These are not "Cyber-warriors" any more than the idiot sending you the SPAM e-mail saying you've won the Nigerian lottery is a "Cyber-warrior". The news media loves "Cyber-" this and "Robo-" that, or anything with an i- or e- prepended to it.3. The contents of these e-mails was anything but startling. People in the Democratic party were actually against someone who was not a Democrat being nominated for President. Rather than running away from this in fear and having people "resign in disgrace" they should have just owned it. People are allowed to have opinions, even Democratic officials. Bernie Sanders was and is a bad idea.4. The reaction of the Democrats to this "hacking" was more the problem than the actual hacking itself. They acted as if they were Senator Larry Craig caught in a restroom with his pants down. Actually, that's a bad analogy, and Craig tried to "stonewall it" (bad pun) rather than run away. When you act like you did something bad, people tend to believe you did. Where there's smoke there's fire.5. The news media - particularly on the Left of all places - stoked the fires of this "scandal" by hyping it to sell newspapers and get clicks. There was no "there" there, but they all acted like Fox News in reporting the "scandal" dutifully.
1. Again, as I noted before, they let the Bernie Sanders Show run for far too many episodes, and instead of cancelling it outright, they are now running it in syndication.2. President Obama, trying to appear impartial, did not endorse Hillary early enough and hard enough. He did not rally the black vote at all. Trump held mega-rallies to stir up his supporters. Where was Obama's mega-rally for Clinton in Milwaukee or Detroit or Philadelphia?3. Hubris - The Democrats and the media thought Hillary couldn't lose, because Donald Trump was (and is) such a buffoon. This only served to enrage the Trump supporters more. What should have been a walk-away election turned into a close call and eventually a pummeling.
