Hillary’s Killer Rabbit?


James Taranto has a post up at WSJ titled Regression to the Meme: Mrs. Clinton Takes on a Cartoon Frog about Pepe the Frog.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign has published a parody of Vox, the liberal news site for young adults. Headline: “Donald Trump, Pepe the Frog, and White Supremacists: An Explainer.” Subheadline: “That cartoon frog is more sinister than you might realize.”

Poor Pepe! He’s just a make-believe frog, and he stands falsely accused of being “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic—you name it.”

This Election is Screwed Up


David Byler as a post over at Real Clear Politics that examines which of the major party candidates stands to gain the most from Gary Johnson’s Aleppo gaffe.

The RealClearPolitics polling averages suggest that Johnson may be taking slightly more of his support from Clinton than Trump. In the two-way-race average of national polls (no third parties included) Clinton leads Trump by 2.8 percentage points. But when Johnson is included, her lead drops to 2.1 points. Clinton also leads Trump by 2.1 points when Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein are included.

Now, let me get this straight … the Libertarian is sucking more votes from the Democrat than he is from the Republican. My brain hurts.

Rice Confirms Powell’s Recollection


Chuck Ross has a post over at The Daily Caller reporting that Condoleezza Rice confirms Colin Powell’s recollection of the email advice he gave Hillary Clinton at a 2009 dinner party. The party was gathering of former Secretaries of State at the Madeleine Albright’s home.  Powell has complained that Clinton is trying to pin her sloppy practices on his advice.

Powell’s email practices were quite different than Clinton’s. He used an AOL account while Clinton paid a State Department employee under the table to manage her email system, which involved a personal account and a private server.

Powell also says he used the State Department’s classified system to send and receive emails with classified information. Clinton declined to use that system, even though she was provided with an account on it. Instead, she sent and received all of her emails from her personal, non-government BlackBerry.
