HAPPIER DAYS: File photo of the Clintons on a Little Rock visiti. Brian Chilson

Yep, Bill Clinton will talk. Somebody engaged him in a New York bookstore recently about Hillary Clinton’s defeat and the conversation reached a local weekly paper and now has been picked up by national outlets.

He’s quoted as saying FBI Director James Comey’s actions in reigniting the e-mail controversy “cost her the election.” There was also this reported comment:

While shopping on Dec. 10 at a bookstore in Pleasantville, New York, Clinton told local newspaper the Record-Review that Trump “doesn’t know much.”

“One thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him,” Clinton said, as quoted by Politico.

 Russian hacking?

On the question of whether he believed emails stolen by Russian-backed hackers and then leaked to websites like Wikileaks damaged his wife’s candidacy, Clinton was quoted as saying: “You would need to have a single-digit IQ not to recognize what was going on.”

Well, yes.
