I’m sorry. I am so, so sorry. But… oh sweet merciful God that’s real, isn’t it?

…imagine a lonely request for media access, hanging in the electronic aether unanswered. Forever.

Contempt piled on contempt. It’s quite bracing, really. This is your life, mainstream media. This is what you get to have. Enjoy!
Basically, the State Department announced that they’d be releasing all of the Hillary Clinton emails that they have at the beginning of next year. Admittedly, a federal judge is having none of that, but never mind that right now. You see, Hot Air is questioning the timing:
January of 2016? Could it have come at a worse time? The official beginning of the primaries will be only weeks away, and by that point in time even Hillary will have had to have started answering some questions, making public appearances and talking to reporters. If they’d all just been dumped this winter she might have been able to file any unpleasant results under the “old news” category as she and her husband usually do, but this schedule promises some fresh meat just as the election is heating up on a national level.
If John Kerry were seriously considering another run at the White House I’d almost think that he planned this release date himself for maximum damage.
I thank the Lord every night that I don’t have to apologize for this campaign.
Clinton on TPP: “I have said I want to judge the final agreement. I have been for trade agreements. I have been against trade agreements”

Because… wow, that’s just bad. I mean, sure, Hillary Clinton boosters would say that it’s a brilliant move on her part – but then, they’d say that if she suddenly decided to defecate in public and then dance a tarantella on her own excrement. Out here in the real world nobody’s walking away all impressed with Secretary Clinton’s acumen.
Another year of this! Enjoy, mainstream media! You got what you wished for! …Good, and hard.
Lied, lied, lied.

Basically, she had her lawyer tell Trey Gowdy that a specific email wasn’t being used during Clinton’s term of office. This was directly contradicted by the New York Times today, albeit in passing. Either way: it’s time for Rep. Gowdy to start bringing in people to be subpoenaed, and putting them in jail for contempt if they try to stonewall. This has gone on for quite long enough.
By the way: it’s going to pass. It was always going to pass. These things happen when the party controlling Congress, and the President, broadly agree on something. So maybe you should concentrate not so much on that, and focus instead on the delicious DEEP HURTING that will now commence:
Obama’s aggressive defense of fast-track has put him at odds with the left wing of the Democratic Party, including Senators Elizabeth Warren, a leading liberal voice, and Bernie Sanders, who is challenging Hillary Clinton for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination.
On Sunday, Sanders called on Clinton, who was an outspoken supporter of the trade pact as Obama’s secretary of state, to take a stand on Obama’s deal.
“You’re either for it or you’re against it. No fence-sitting on this one,” he said on CNN.
Yes. I cannot wait to hear what Hillary Clinton thinks about fast-track. It should be… ah, ‘highly nuanced?’ Sure, we’ll go with that.
(H/T: Hot Air Headlines) Another day, another scalp wound for the Hillary Clinton campaign. Sorry if that particular image is a bit much, but it’s a good analogy for what’s happening to Hillary Clinton with regard to the Clinton Foundation. To wit: scalp wounds bleed a lot and look as messy as all get-out, but if you can stop the blood loss there aren’t many long-term consequences.
Because this is what a pressure buildup looks like.
I am going to score this new logo from Hillary Clinton* as being a rather significant design FAIL. Normally, I would not presume to do so; but normally I’m not given this kind of provocation. Good luck not seeing this now, sorry: and I apologize in advance for the, er, adult content of this observation. Consider yourself warned to stop reading now if you’re squeamish about this sort of thing:
