Ms. Jobs for Jihadis is no longer saying that there’s no indication that Hillary! had classified information on an unsecured system. She’s now saying that the question itself is not “pertinent.” Thanks for clearing that up.
The lefties were aghast that Obambicare’s federal health insurance exchanges in many states might get closed: Someone, somewhere might get sick and die. Meanwhile it’s business as usual for the nation’s abortionists.
Our leftie friends at Mother Jones put it this way:
Benjamin Netanyahu just mansplained Iran to Obama
Er, okay. Glad you said that because there’d be no end to it if some rightie guy sneered that Obama was our first female president.
For what it’s worth, I prefer mansplaining to ’Bamsplaining, where he peddles a lot of gaseous pap interrupted by cheap digs at straw men and all delivered in that set-your-watch-by-it left-right prompter-swivel. (To stick with the Mother Jones shtick, real men don’t use prompters.)
But, if this was “mansplaining”, it was a big man doing the ‘splaining. The shout-out to Harry Reid, the “my long-time friend John Kerry” schmoozeroo, all this was brilliant - not because everyone doesn’t understand how fake it is, but because the transparent fakery underlines how easy it is to be big and generous and magnaninmous and get the snippy parochial stuff out of the way to concentrate on what really matters.
Obama could have done this. He could have said yesterday, “Hey, my good friend Bibi and I don’t see eye to eye on everything, but I’d have to be an awfully thin-skinned insecure narcissistic little dweeb to make that a capital offense, wouldn’t I? So, since he’s in town anyway, I’ve asked him to swing by the White House for an hour to shoot the breeze - and maybe we can have that dinner we missed out on the last time, right, Prime Minister? Hur-hur-hur.”
In loosing off all the phony-baloney bipartisan crapola, Netanyahu reminded us how easy it is to play the game, and how small and petty Obama is by comparison. And then, without ever saying it directly, he went on to lay out (or, if you’re as touchy as Mother Jones, “mansplain”) how pathetic it is to be that small and petty at this tide in the affairs of man.
General David Petraeus has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge in connection to his handling of classified material -- striking a plea deal with the government that avoids an embarrassing trial and that will likely keep him out of prison over whether he leaked private information to his mistress when he headed up the CIA.
Federal prosecutors will ask the judge for two years of probation for Petraeus.
The criminal complaint, filed Tuesday in the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina’s Charlotte Division, charges Petraeus with one count of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material.
Any individual with a single email with a single item of classified information now has Hillary!’s future in his hands. I wonder what that’s worth.
Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.
