I wish I could say that I were sorry, Donald, but you are an existential threat to all that is good, true and beautiful in this world, and everyone with an ounce of humanity wants you crawl back under your rock and leave the rest of us alone.

Democrats Should Demand Random Sampling Of Emails First

Paul Abrams | Posted 11.01.2016 | Politics
Paul Abrams

Republicans like Hugh Hewitt are now worried that the new group of emails have nothing whatsoever to do with Secretary of State Clinton, and thus she may receive exoneration. After all, Trump has already called Comey a hero, (unlike John McCain who, according to the draft-dodger, was not a hero because he was captured).

Dressing someone down via email is tempting because it's easy -- you have plenty of time to dream up daggers that strike straight to the heart, and you lack the inhibition that's present when the recipient is staring you in the face.

Even When Hillary Wins, Media Props Trump Up: Do They Think No One Else Is Watching?

Michael Russnow | Posted 09.28.2016 | Media
Michael Russnow

I waited a day to assess how the debate was analyzed by news accounts and pundits, and while there was a huge plurality in favor of Hillary's performance there were still the same old attempts to build Donald Trump up and give him credit for retracting stuff he said when no such credit should be acknowledged.

Email Hacking, And You And I

You and I aren't likely to be the victim of an "email hack job" (my phrase). Yes, the KGB hasn't existed (we are told) since the 1990's. But assuming it's the KGB that's doing the dirty deed to our public figures, as is the conventional wisdom, you and I simply aren't important enough to them.

Clinton Emails

The anti-Clinton forces consider it a victory to see yet another round of email stories written, of course. But in all the investigating and document dumps, they have never uncovered any sort of bonfire-sized scandal to inflame public passions -- it's all been pretty small-scale stuff.

Interview With Connecticut Secretary Of State And Convention Delegate Denise Merrill

I conducted the following interview yesterday, before the convention actually started. Denise Merrill is a Connecticut delegate (although not, as she pointed out to me, a superdelegate) and serves Connecticut as their Secretary of State. A recent achievement was the state becoming the first to pass a campaign finance reform law which created a public financing system for elections -- all the other states with such laws created them through ballot initiatives or referenda.
