Why don't you look at what I actually said: "She's a law unto herself." And

A spokesman for Mrs. Clinton, Nick Merrill, defended her use of the personal email account and said she has been complying with the "letter and spirit of the rules."

So Her Majesty must be guiltless by the simple tautology that whatever she does is automatically kosher, right?

antics are the height of absurd. Workin' hard, tryin' to come up with a suggestion of how you could improve upon the peevish tone. . .

Before the Affordable Care Act. More generally, each page of federal overreach legislated by Congress and regulated by the Executive is an incremental/excremental abridgement of liberty.
However, I do agree that we retain the right to be pleased with the increase in the weekly chocolate ration to 20oz from 30oz, though.

Can't begin to fathom what you're talking about. Are you saying my vowels contradict my consonants, or are you being more subtle than that? Also, are you quoting too generously? Shouldn't you whittle it down to:




so that you can show an inarguable shift from third- to first-person?
Restated: since it sure seems as though your arguments are utter crap, why not just go for Peak Crap from the get-go?

Given the behavior to date, your moans of

"You have already decided for yourself The Only True Answer to those questions. . ."

are the height of speciousness. Your first million: go on a comedy tour while pretending and protesting Her Majesty's innocence. Your laughs, fame, and burial under a vegetable medley are assured.
Her Majesty is a law unto Herself. That is "The Only True Answer". And our little peasant butts had better genuflect! Some of us, remembering liberty, will muster less enthusiasm.

Hillary Clinton hopes you are busy. Hillary Clinton hopes you are confused. Hillary Clinton hopes the endless stories about her private email server--and her endless, fabulist explanations--will make your head hurt, make your eyes cross, make you give up trying to figure it out.
All you really need to know at this point is this: Pretty much every claim Mrs. Clinton made at her initial March news conference, and since then, is false. In the spirit of keeping it simple, here’s the Complete Busy Person’s Guide to the Clinton Email Scandal. Stick it on the fridge.
Why she kept a private server...
Why she finally gave her emails to the State Department...

Clinton (on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sept. 27): "I think I have done all that I can . . . to be as transparent as possible."
Truth: Give her marks for this one. Mrs. Clinton is undoubtedly being as transparent as Mrs. Clinton can possibly be.

As with Obama, it's unclear when Her Majesty has ever told the truth. Should the country prove stupid enough to empower Her Majesty, I'm totally blaming the victim.
