Watergate 201


screen-shot-2016-10-28-at-11-39-35-pmIt’s not the crime that usually brings down a politician, not the action involved in what ever it was they probably should not have done, it’s the cover-up.   All Hillary Clinton needed to do was say that she screwed up, and let the buffalo chips fall where they needed to fall.  That’s all she needed to do – unless there is something else going on here.

I assume things are going to work out one of two ways:

  1. Hillary Clinton is elected, indicted, forced to resign and Tim Kaine as new POTUS pardons her.
  2. Hillary Clinton loses, and outgoing POTUS Barack Obama pardons her.

Either way, she comes out on top, getting to keep her money, her power, and get a very lucrative book deal in the process.   She is a Clinton.  They  never pay the price for anything they do.  That’s the beauty of being a good Democrat. They protect their own.  We Republicans have this annoying tendency to wax poetic over the rule of law, the Constitution, and all that bloody rot.  Democrats aren’t burdened by such things as ethics. They aren’t bothered by matters of conscience.  That’s why they do so well in politics.

Quite frankly, I don’t expect much to come of any of this.  The diversion may be enough to swing the vote to Donald Trump, but I am not holding my breath.  Evidently Hillary Clinton’s supporters take a cue from her, and blame everyone else, but Hillary.

It’s the Russians.
