The HRC Apologist In Me Is Dead.

Robert Reich reports this exchange between Hillary Clinton and George Stephanopoulos:

When asked... if she could name a single economist who backs her call for a gas tax holiday this summer, HRC said "I'm not going to put my lot in with economists.”

Rafe Colburn describes this as anti-intellectualism, and I'm inclined to agree.

I still believe Hillary has suffered more personal abuse during this campaign than any other candidate. I'm no longer convinced she deserves much better.
