When in a Hole, Hillary Clinton Keeps Digging

The putative next president of the United States continues to do her best to convince us that she has no business being president:

  • Remember how Clinton told us that she couldn’t use both a state.gov e-mail address for work and a private e-mail address for personal correspondence because carrying two smartphones would be too cumbersome? Turns out that Clinton carried both a BlackBerry and an iPad. Just to emphasize, this news “comes despite [Clinton’s] explanation earlier this month that she used only a personal email address on a server run from her Chappaqua, New York, residence so she would have to carry only one device.” So, we were lied to on this front.
  • Apparently, Clinton maintained some kind of off-the-books intelligence network. One of the amateur spies working for Clinton–the noted pro-Clinton hack, Sidney Blumenthal–may have violated federal law with his e-mails.
  • According to the State Department, it has in its possession only four e-mails from Clinton regarding drone strikes and surveillance programs, “and those notes have little to do with either subject.” It is inconceivable that Clinton only wrote four e-mails on these subjects, and it would be nice if the other e-mails could be recovered, but . . . well . . . Clinton potentially made that impossible, didn’t she?
  • There are now 13 words that you can no longer use to refer to Hillary Clinton, lest you be outed as a sexist. These words include: “polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, inevitable, entitled, over confident, secretive, will do anything to win, represents the past,” and “out of touch.” Two points: (1) This is a whole lot more than 13 words. (2) There is nothing whatsoever “sexist” about them. Of course, I’m sure that Clinton-backers are aware of the second point, and it is a sign of just how truly rattled they must be concerning their candidate’s public bumbling and fumbling that they would put forth the entirely silly notion that we are forbidden from using entirely non-sexist words in the English language to describe her thus-far disastrous campaign for the presidency.
