Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The Other Shoe

I've been expecting another round of bad Trump leaks to drop any day now.  I figured about 10 days out from the election - on a Friday - would be a good time to drop some opposition research out there.

Turns out it was the FBI that was waiting to drop a bomb.

It certainly seems like this is just due diligence, and I am willing to bet the farm there is nothing especially damning in whatever they discovered.  In short, the big issue here again is the Clinton family tendency to let a scandal bleed out and play poorly, rather than ripping the Band Aid off quickly.

No doubt this will also embolden morons like Rep. Chaffetz who want to relitigate Benghazi, the Clinton Foundation, Vince Foster, the Lindbergh baby and Jack the Ripper.

However, if the Clintons are holding on to a nice juicy piece of Trump being an asshole, now might be the time to let it fly.
