How is a Trump Administration still a thing in November 2016? Extinction is fine, I suppose, if you’re into that sort of thing. Why are patriotic people so bent on our destruction? Some of you are saying, “It’s all of the Hillary scandals!” You are correct, you simply neglected to add the word ‘bullshit’ before the word scandals. The Hillary witch hunt is perhaps the greatest affront to reason in the 21st century, and that’s saying something when republican’s comment on stuff everyday. I find myself in the strange position of defending the Great White Pantsuit. A summary of her scandals range from no wrong doing, all the way to very little wrongdoing. Wow. You do know she’s a politician, right? Can we at least agree on that much? There’s no way anyone in history could withstand this kind of decade-after-decade scrutiny, yet she remains strong. Let’s compare her with the best R president in the last fifty years, who illegally funded the Iran Contras and helped create Al-Qaeda. Out of respect, I left out his questionable performance in Bedtime For Bonzo. Hillary would have created Al-Qaeda, but she was too busy creating ISIS.
Now, just a few days before the election, too many deplorables are considering the unthinkable. So please return your sovereignty cards, slide your weak Constitutions under the door, and climb into the nearest tree for safety. A Rick and/or a Daryl will be contacting you shortly. In preparation for the upcoming apocalypse, mortuaries across the country are being ordered to kill the brain of the recently deceased. This procedure has been deemed unnecessary for republicans. What’s really going on? Can you spell mysogeny? Don’t worry, according to my spell check either can I.
Here’s what’s actually happening: the right created a liberal bogeyman named Hillary Clinton. They then created a real monster named Donald Trump to combat the imaginary thought-form in their brains. Unless you’ve spent years honing a false narrative, Trump is not an option. My criticism of Hillary involves her hawkishness, her unwillingness to embrace a carbon tax, and her general tendency toward right-leaning pragmatism. Hint: these are not your complaints. Meanwhile, republican complaints all rhyme with Svengali (I tried to work in Svengoolie for Halloween, but better luck next hearing).
Having chosen Obama over Hillary in the 2008 primaries and being drawn to Bernie in 2016, I can’t in good conscious make a strong case for Hillary Clinton. Kidding, my relatives climbed down from the trees long ago, so of course I can. Hell, even Inspector Clousseau could make a better case for Hillary, while fighting Cato, during a Zombie apocalypse… Daryl is the one with the crossbow.
Hillary scandals range from bullshit (BS) all the way to Business As Usual (BAS):
Business As Usual
|Benghazi: Less embassy deaths under Hillary/Obama = good. At least try to embrace math. We know the embassy attack score card is Bush (13) and Reagan (10) = 1 investigation. Obama/Hillary (2 attacks) = 13 investigations, which concluded no wrong doing. Got math?||Email server: More to come, I hope. In this hacker-heavy 21st century, a private server is not a good idea. Who knew? Certainly not Condoleezza or Colin, or anyone in the State Department before her. This scandal, her worst to date, still rates a whopping meh.|
|The Death of Vince Foster: Granted he did die and Hillary Clinton was on Earth at the time (sigh).||Wall Street WikiDumps: Soooo, you think republicans will be harder on Wall Street? Really? I have read the transcripts for these speeches (yawn). Don’t worry, more WikiLame to come.|
|Comey’s New Email Revelations (server part 2): Whereas we really don’t know anything at this time, here’s my best guess: this will end with no indictment, a president Clinton, and a swift Comey exit. For an actual indictment, see Reagan’s Iran Contra scandal = 14.||Clinton Foundation: This should be in the positive column of the Clintons. They do need to distance themselves from this impressive bit of philanthropy, but most of these startling revelations either come with a lack of evidence, or show how the Clinton Machine has always operated. Chutzpah-gate?|
|White Water: The FBI said the whole thing lacks any merit. This can also be said of anything uttered by Trump. To the GOP’s credit, water gate and white water both have the word water in them. Economically, the country spends so much time under water when conservatives are in charge, maybe they are the experts.||Bill Clinton’s Shenanigans: Whereas it’s not bullshit, he’s not on the ticket. Although I admit, he should probably be supervised in the hallways. Mr. Clinton, you are not transgender, please exit the Lady’s room.
|FBI/State Department: This may or may not have occurred at all, but what we do know is that she was no longer at the State Department. Quid pro no?||Pantsuit-gate: Not only are her pantsuits business as usual, they’re business casual.
Any one of the dozen or more Bush scandals, that were never actually investigated, top this crapolla. Of course 22-million emails disappeared during the lead up to the Iraq War. If you recall, this was during an actual scandal …called the Iraq War. There are other Hillary scandals, of course, but to even discuss those you need to be lowered into a pool of Breitbart.com staffers for a month with only Glenn Beck’s chalkboard.
Whereas I’ve never been a huge Hillary fan, Dr. Leigh wears I’m With Her pajamas, so I thought I’d ask her a few questions:
Zano: You sat through the entire Hillary/FBI Comey hearings back in July. What was your assessment of the email hearings, having sat through several hours of testimony with nothing but Red Bull and unfiltered Camels?
Dr. Leigh: It was a in depth witch hunt. Only 1 of 30,000 emails contained classified information, which was hidden in a paragraph well into the body of the email. Two emails contained retroactively classified information that was not classified at time of delivery. There were no emails with classified markings in the actual header, which is protocol. To me this seems exceptionally responsible given the margin of human error.
Zano: Comey was grilled for nearly four hours and there’s next to no good sound bites. That should tell you something. Of all the attacks on Hillary over the years, what bothers you the most?
Dr. Leigh: THE DOUBLE STANDARD! This is misogyny at its finest!
Zano: What do you think is Hillary’s greatest strength and her greatest failing?
Dr. Leigh: Her ambition makes her unfavorable whereas Trump’s, Bernie’s, Barack’s, and Bill’s make them all likeable. She is a straight-A student and the most qualified person for the job, possibly ever. It’s unfortunate that she’s unable to be vulnerable due to our societal standards. A little vulnerability would do her some good, but no one can contend with her strength.
Zano: I think her unpopularity involves an emotional reaction from conservatives. Do they have a point, or is their intuition as skewed as anything else these days?
Dr. Leigh: I think strong women invoke strong reactions in weak men. E.G. My friendship with you, Mick Zano.
[Dr. Leigh will no longer be working for The Daily Discord. We wish her well in her future endeavors.]
As Hillary weathers storm after bullshit storm, I like her more and more. Who’s ignoring Dem scandals? They’re just not all that surprising or interesting. Republicans are always trying to catch Dems on a technicality. Do I care if the Clinton Foundation may or may not have broken some obscure ethical statute or another? One of the most philanthropic organizations in history? I never discussed technicalities with Bush, ever. There was real shit to vent about, you know, like war crimes. During a Trump Administration I’m going to go out on a limb here and say any technicalities will be ignored as well. We can just check the freezer in the White House kitchen for body parts.
A Slate article covered the latest Hillary FBI bullshit when it occurred to me: this piece, like most on the left, was clear and succinct. It stated what we currently know and what it might mean. The other side looks at the same data and jumps to: here’s what might have happened and then they extrapolate. Kidding, they just try to tie it into Benghazi. If she ever does really screw up, they’ll miss it. Hey, maybe these latest emails will reveal where she buried Vince Foster.
Unless they involve interns, Dem scandals usually fall well under the threshold of relevant. I like to think I would never cover such trivialities, even if they were legitimate technical fouls. Admittedly, the Clintons are the most questionable on the Dem side, hell, they’re practically republicans. But all of our friends on the right fall below the Billary-line, deep in Creepsylvania.
Breaking: Trump has a 10 point lead in Creepsylvania.
All of our jobs are a 1000x less complicated than hers and, yet, if someone scrutinized any of us as much, they’d find something. Remember how the average American commits three felonies a day, here? (My personal best here.) Apparently Hillary Clinton is the only one who doesn’t. She also got the best truth/ratio score from the fact checkers throughout the whole primary process. I know, I know, they can’t be trusted. Cue Breitbart.com staffers madly scribbling on Glenn Beck’s chalkboard.
