There have been times, believe it or not, when I have been accused of being too hard on the media and the Democrats. I’m hard on the Republicans too, but no one cares about them.
I admit that I view the media and politicians as bumbling, exasperating, and ultimately dangerous threats to the Republic. Americans have installed both the politicians and the media as safeguards for our Constitutional liberties. In terms of a hiring decision, it rates somwhere between employing an army of Golden Retrievers to guard a collection of Faberge eggs and that time we got scammed into a discounted 3-hour tour with Gilligan.
Take the latest twist in the Hillary Clinton scandal du jour. This email scandal has been going on forever but if you are unfamiliar, here’s a summary of the whole scandal in 63-words. This week, the Inspector General released a long-awaited report, restating what everyone has known for months: Hillary’s arrangement was unsanctioned and unnecessary, and her recklessness put U.S. security at risk.
Hillary supporters have their own reasons for supporting her. Perhaps they are feminists who feel their candidate has paid her dues and is entitled to the presidency, that she has the best resume, the best gender, that her agenda is similar to theirs, or maybe they are just anti-Trump or anti-Sanders. But whatever their reasons are, none of them seem to labor under delusions that Mrs. Clinton is an ethical, truthful public servant.
