Opening Arguments

What a line

It's actually kind of entertaining to watch Hillary Clinton apologists twist themselves into knots to defend the indefensible act of doing government business on a personal email accountt. MSNBC knucklehead Ed Schultz gets the nod for most amusing response:

Schultz sympathized with the idea that Clinton might feel “overwhelmed” by having to manage multiple “machines.” In fact, he found it endearing. “I think there’s a little bit of comedy to that actually,” he said. “There’s a lot of people in her demographic that just don’t want to be overwhelmed by that technology that are going to take the easier, simplest route to do something — I get that.”
"In her demographic"? Is he saying what I think he's saying? Leave poor Hillary alone. She's just too old to cope with this dang newfangled technology. There's a ringing endorsement for someone's qualification to be president.
And this "multiple machine" crap, which I've seen in far too many stories about the issue, come on. You can have mutliple accounts on one machine, and most people have access to their email -- even if it's just one account -- from any number of platforms. I access mine through my work desktop, my home desktop, my laptop, my tablet, my smartphone . . .
And in what way is having just one account "convenient"? I have two acccounts, one for work and one a personal account. So do most of the people I know. That is what is convenient, the ability to keep your work and personal life separate. She was just trying to avoid accountatility and transparency, and everybody knows it. Hell, she is a Clinton.
Yeah. Endearing. Little bit of comedy.
