Lies about lying...


Or she is brain dead.  Or something.  ;)

Not lying. By saying "I don't believe", she is keeping the door open for being proved wrong in the future. Typical of her weasel-wording lip-flapping.

"I did not handle classified information on my email server" becomes "I didn't get any email that was marked classified". Technically correct, but misleading.

It all depends on the definition of "is" is.
"No controlling legal authority".

Etc. They really don't think that lying is wrong. It's just part of politics.

She has been followed by controversy and the odor of corruption all of her adult life. The DNC will anoint her as their candidate regardless whether she wins (earns?) it or not. And 50% of America will vote for her, whether through ignorance, stupidity, or blind loyalty to the Party.

I'm not sure that the Right side is any better, but I don't see any of their candidates being quite as "Clintonesque" as Hillary. (Duh!)

Who wins if it comes down to Trump v Clinton? Will the RNC allow Trump? If not Trump, who?

This election will be one for the ages.

I agree with all you say. Lying isn't wrong as long as it is in the pursuit of political goals. Right? ;)

"weasel-wording lip-flapping". Classic. :)

Josef G.? Nah, not this time. I was making that up on my own...
