FBI says Hillary Clinton was “careless” with classified secrets, not treasonous for evading public record.

Pundits are decrying the unfair scrutiny on the presumptive successor-in-chief, pointing out that Condoleeza Rice and Colin Powell were never called out for using private servers. Other miscreants too, who should have been hauled before the justice department, tarred and feathered and pilloried. Carl Rove and Dubya Bush purged email records. Are they the new role models for what behavior is acceptable?!   And all that is missing the point. Hillary's use of a private server for state department emails was more than a security breach, it was an avoidance of keeping a public record. It was evasion of accountability. It was treasonable. Richard Nixon was in touble for erasing 18 minutes of taped conversation in the White House. Hillary has deleted millions of records in flagrant violation of rules of transparency meant to check government corruption. Fortunately Wikileaks snagged a bunch of them, and presumedly the NSA has archived them all, with the entirety of everyone's public and private record. Funny no one is reopening that can of worms.

Dear President Obama, your email MailMerge function needs tweaking

When a Codepink blogger offered her public reply to President Obama's "This Fourth of July" email, I thought I'd poke my own fun at passages like "as America comes ever closer to achieving the perfect Union our founders dreamed." But when I examined the email Obama sent me, that laugh line had been scrubbed. Did you know our personal notes from the president were indeed personal? 18453

Wikileaks can archive the Palin emails so she doesn’t have to, by law

Wikileaks is off-line again. (But try 88.80.13.160) The whistle-blower safe box had just posted fragments of communications hacked from Sarah Palin's Yahoo email account. GOP campaign reps denounced the act as "a shocking invasion of the governor's privacy and a violation of the law" Come again? Eavesdropping is illegal? 4820

Bruce Vincent loves George is so 2004

How desperately Republicans want to believe that there is piety to the madness of young king George. There is 2004 email still making the rounds that tells of one Evangelical Christian’s impossible to confirm private prayer with our idiot in chief.
