It's an observational argument, actually. There is no functioning "unorganized" citizen militia.

No. You didn't expect me to agree.

It's condemnable because:
1) Trump is contemptable
2) You don't admit fault for helping elect him to power
3) I ridicule it on its merit, regardless of outcome

I'm not interested in re-litigating her merits, or lack thereof. She had serious flaws, for sure. Not the least of which that she could not inspire sufficient numbers of democrats and independents to come out to vote for her. But despite that, she was a far more competent, experienced and serious candidate than Trump.
