The silly season is upon us again. As usual the media is willing to allow their preferred candidate excess baggage. Unfortunately the laws of physics may override the media favor. The amount of excess baggage Hillary Clinton carries threatens to overwhelm the airplane. This plane is badly overloaded with baggage and more is coming. It may not be able to lift off.
The New York Times Flips
The most recent revelation, reported in the NY Times, is that Hillary Clinton may have received cash for her foundation from Russia as the quid in a quid pro quo in a uranium deal. The Washington Post is also all over this issue. Add this to a litany of almost thirty years of recorded baggage from Arkansas and Washington and one wonders why this woman believes she has a right to be president. Given what is still ahead in terms of expected new revelations, one wonders why Ms. Clinton does not just disappear into her dotage and spend time with her grandchild.
As with so many other things political, H. L. Mencken provided the answer:
… one who is so stupid that the ideas of the mob are his own ideas, or one so far gone in charlatanry that he is unconscious of his shame. Our laws are made, in the main, by men who have sold their honour for their jobs, and they are executed by men who put their jobs above justice and common sense.
