Scary Stuff on Capitol Hill

Screen shot of today's hearing on Clinton's crimes.
I'm glad it's daytime because I'm watching a really scary movie on TV right now. Oh wait, it's not a movie, it's a real life hearing on Capitol Hill about Hillary Clinton's allegedly illegal doings during her tenure as Secretary of State. FBI Director James Comey is being questioned about his day-old decision to let her get away with breaking the law without so much as a slap on the wrist. All the Democrats are defending her as being merely clueless and unsophisticated with technology (like that's a good thing) while all the Republicans are insisting she was smart enough to know she was doing a bad thing.

In case you've been in a coma, a few years back Clinton operated a private email server in the basement of her home while she was serving in the cabinet of the United States, sending and receiving classified emails on it. Lowering the aleady low Clinton bar, she then denied she did so, having her team of lawyers delete and destroy the most egregious messages (30,000 of them gone!) before turning it all over for inspection once that situation was discovered. She still insists on it all being perfectly acceptable, and now the director of the FBI concurs that it's not so bad, really. We the pathetic public can only imagine how many laws will be ignored when she occupies the highest office in the land.

Clearly this is no longer a democracy we live in. Perhaps, as a dear friend of mine cleverly suggested, it is more accurate to call it a Clintocracy.
