In Mala Fide

Here’s a good summary of the Clinton email skulduggery.

Can we have an indictment, please? That convention’s getting closer and closer, and I want my whisky.

    You don’t have to be a psephologist to know that Hillary Clinton will be nominated next month, with a victory margin of about three million votes and about three hundred delegates. We godless liberals will mark it as a great day in the annals of government tyranny, as the last flickering light of liberty is crushed in Philadelphia.

    You may concede now or you may concede later. Mindful of the old maxim – a well balanced Scotsman is someone with a chip on both shoulders – I’m not going to press the timing. However a concession lies in your future.

    I suspect we’ll find out oh, on or about the first of July. A Friday. And the announcement will occur about three hours after the evening news.

    Or possibly, June 24th.

    Peter,

    It ain’t over yet, and Hope springs eternal. Or perhaps I should say “where there’s lies (and lies and lies and lies), there’s Hope.”

    We godless liberals will mark it as a great day in the annals of government tyranny, as the last flickering light of liberty is crushed in Philadelphia.

    Fitting. It’s as if the constitutional republic is swimming back to its spawning grounds to die.

    I guess this is a bad time to make an “elephants’ graveyard” pun.

    Let’s leave Donald Trump out of this. The defiantly ignorant buffoon will go down to a crushing defeat in November. The issue here is Hillary Clinton’s victory as the Democratic nominee.

    I saw a poll last night where 71% of “Democrats” would not let Hillary’s email etc stop them from voting for her. Maybe the other 29% of “Democrats” are Sanders supporters. AP has managed to publish with a straight face that Hillary has now captured all the delegates she needs…on the eve of the Ca. primary. Nothing like the media and DNC working hand in glove to make Bernie take a hike. He is right, the system is rigged.

    I see where Paul Ryan has hatched some notion of creating “a better Republican Party”. Well, if it is made up of Republicans, then that is a waste of time. Events have to play out as they are so what comes next can come. The current R party has been unfit for purpose for a long time and are in the way. The D party is lunging headlong into the only direction they have open to them—totalitarian socialism. We spent the 1980s watching the USSR until it fell. We should have been watching “Democrats” among us. Our enemy all along.

    Since tropical storm Colin has begun veering out to sea quicker than first thought, I have heard Spanish mackerel are in along the beaches of Nags Head, NC. Duty calls and I just have to go fishing. Room is reserved with a nice view of Roanoke Island and Manteo, birth place of Virginia Dare.

    pangur,

    From this post:

    The comment-policy needs improving. I realize threads can wander off-topic, though I will ask commenters to try not to; what I really need to eliminate, though, are insulting comments that do nothing to advance the discussion at hand. I am going to delete those. (I am not innocent of this myself, especially lately, and have been pretty short-tempered at times too, so I share this burden.) What I don’t want to have, on political or related threads, and will no longer allow, is mere name-calling and poo-flinging.

    Au contraire: thanks for the laugh.

    But I don’t get to see what was written! Not fair. Assuming it was a derogatory comment about the OEM, I reckon he can give as good as he gets.

    I was pleased to see the OEM make an appearance because it shows that you’re still friends, and I do like to hear the other side of things presented by someone who can compete in the clever stakes.

    I’m godless myself, in that I can’t believe. I never have been able to, but I do love sacred music and religious ritual and I believe that faith can transform people. I just don’t have it.

    Be good people, without the hope of eternal reward or the threat of everlasting damnation. It’s just a better way to live.

    Musey,

    Assuming it was a derogatory comment about the OEM…

    It was. Arguing is fine, and encouraged. Coherent rebuttal is best. But productive argument is not always possible, and where argument is pointless, saying so is fine, and encouraged. Haughty aloofness, withering sarcasm, mordant humor are also available options. Mere insults and vulgar obloquy are not.

    I was pleased to see the OEM make an appearance because it shows that you’re still friends.

    We are. Political differences are almost uniquely polarizing (they share first place with religious ones), and I have indeed lost some old (and new) friends during my decades-long passage from blithe (OEM-style) liberalism to neoconservatism to traditional conservatism to reaction. Peter is not one of those, though.

  14. Yes, I tell God what to do, just like my hero, Big Al, used to. Most of the time, of course, God, in his mysterious ways, either ignores me or chooses to respond with unintended consequences.
