Remember the horror that Bill Clinton committed perjury over an affair? 20 years later half of America wants to elect a man who can't tell the truth even on important stuff - in court, in national debates, to the INS or IRS, anywhere. There's a special place in hell for hypocritical sons-of-bitches, and it'll look a lot like the Cleveland convention, just bigger and louder. Hillary's "deplorable" understates the problem.
We have video of police shooting unarmed black people. We have reports of cops who witnessed shootings lying on police reports. There is no reason to believe that if a police officer tramples on your civil and human rights, other cops will intervene. Police unions will always back the cop who shot the unarmed black person no matter the circumstance. Police have lost the trust of many in the public.
Folks seem to forget the tried and true ways of turning a plus into a minus - think it was Rove that started a whisper campaign against a guy who built Children's Homes - that he was a pedophile instead of a do-gooder. Anyone can be brought down. Conason again tries to correct the record, but only the tried and true will notice.
The Massachusetts Supreme Court just ruled that innocent black men may have a legitimate reason to flee the police given the Boston PD's history of racial bias. Since fleeing is reasonable, it does not imply guilt.
Tom Toles: When you try and unpack the ‘off the charts’ Hillary unfavorables, you find yourself rummaging in a box of Styrofoam peanuts and not a lot else. The big gun of charges against Hillary, which people love to unload as conclusive and unassailable is the “I don’t trust her!” line.... The GOP trusts Hillary about 100% to work against THEIR agenda. Why do you think they hate her so much?
