Susan Sarandon Tweets the perfect response

Your vote, is your vote.

No one owns it.

Candidates should campaign for it.

How you choose to vote (even if it's choosing not to vote at all) is your business, is your right.

Some whiners are trying to blame everyone for Hillary Clinton's loss except Hillary.

It's on Hillary.

Especially when Bill kept trying to warn and she kept blowing him off.  (I won't betray the conversation with Bill on this by going into specifics.  But I know how frustrated he was the last two weeks as he was sidelined while predicting what was actually happening -- and he was correct.)

Hillary was a lousy candidate that the party tried to shove down people's throats.

Instead of dealing with that and the fact that she and her followers were allowed to rig the process, instead of addressing the issues with foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation or her inability to turn over e-mails, or her decision to send top secret/classified information via e-mail to her daughter (who had no security clearance), instead of dealing with her lousy campaign that took Wisconsin for granted and she never stepped foot in it (and, no surprise, she lost Wisconsin), they want to blame everyone else.

Gary Johnson does not owe Hillary a damn thing.  He was the Libertarian candidate for president.  In the United States, he's allowed to run for office.

Jill Stein doesn't owe Hillary a damn thing.  She was the Green Party candidate for president.  In the US, she's allowed to run for office.

We need more choices in democracy, that's the only way it thrives.

Whining that Hillary lost because some people voted for ---?

She lost those votes, she lost them because she couldn't appeal to those voters.

That's on her.

She ran a right-wing primary campaign and tacked further right after the primary.

That's why the neocons lined up behind her.

In addition to blaming those two candidates -- instead of Hillary -- for Hillary's loss, some are also blaming activist and Academy Award winning actress Susan Sarandon.

That's insanity.

And, with a sense of humor, Susan has Tweeted the perfect response.

To all those who find blaming me less painful than introspection, never knew I was this powerful.
