Liberal democrat Maureen Dowd is not exactly thrilled with her party’s impending nominee. Hey! why should we be the only ones with a crappy, hideously undesirable candidate?
[T]he email transgression is not a one off. Itâ€™s part of a long pattern of ethical slipping and sliding, obsessive secrecy and paranoia, and collateral damage.
Comeyâ€™s verdict that Hillary was â€œnegligentâ€ was met with sighs rather than shock. We know who Hillary and Bill are now. Weâ€™ve been held hostage to their predilections and braided intrigues for a long time. (On the Hill, Comey refused to confirm or deny that heâ€™s investigating the Clinton Foundation, with its unseemly tangle of donors and people doing business with State.)
Weâ€™re resigned to the Clintons focusing on their viability and disregarding the consequences of their heedless actions on others. Theyâ€™re always offering a Faustian deal. This yearâ€™s election bargain: Put up with our iniquities or get Trumpâ€™s short fingers on the nuclear button.
Now she’s complaining. I don’t exactly remember, but I’d bet dollars to doughnuts that Maureen Dowd was a staunch MoveOn.org supporter, back when Republicans were trying to bring Bill to justice.
