Instead of behaving clumsily and timidly--instead of looking all...
The Washington Post -- and much of the establishment -- wants you to buy a lifetime subscription to the politics of fear.
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.
What would happen to any regular American if they did what Cook did, and said they they aren't going to pay taxes because they don't think the tax rate is "fair"? Hint: Jail.
