Hillary Clinton at the United Nations last week.
by Mockarena of Chicks on the Right
It’s an open letter to Hillary’s private email address from America, and the whole thing is a must read, but here are my favorite bits:
None of what you said made any sense. Keeping a single account mingling business and personal with your own server wasn’t about “convenience.” It was about expedience. You became judge and jury on what’s relevant because you didn’t want to leave digital fingerprints for others to retrace. You could have had Huma carry two devices if you really couldn’t hoist an extra few ounces. You insisted on piggybacking on Bill’s server, even though his aides were worried about hackers, because you were gaming the system for 2016. (Or even 2012.)
Suffused with paranoia and pre-emptive defensiveness, you shrugged off The One’s high-minded call for the Most Transparent Administration in History.
It depends upon what the meaning of @ is.
And then she just goes to TOWN:
Instead of raising us up by behaving like exemplary, sterling people, you bring us down to your own level, a place of blurred lines and fungible ethics and sleazy associates. Your family’s foundation gobbles tens of millions from Saudi Arabia and other repressive regimes, whose unspoken message is: “We’re going to give you money to go improve the world. Now leave us alone to go persecute women.”
That’s an uncomfortable echo of a Clintonian trade-off, which goes: “We’re going to give you the first woman president who will improve the country. Now leave us alone to break any rules we please.”
And this is my favorite line:
You seem like an annoyed queen, radiating irritation at anyone who tries to hold you accountable.
Have you ever heard a more perfectly and accurately awesome description of Hillary? OMG LOVE.
And she ends it like this:
We hope this letter enriches your knowledge of our constitutional system and promotes mutual understanding and clarity as the campaign progresses.
