Hope n' Change waited patiently for Hillary Clinton's brief press conference, at which she had promised to clear up any confusion about her use of personal - and only personal - email for her duties as Secretary of State rather than the system mandated by the Obama administration and maintained by the best cyber-security people taxpayers can buy.
Her excuse was so mind-bogglingly stupid that it left us at a loss for words. Which is why we're giving the floor to special guest commentator John the Econ:
She said that she opted for her private server because she didn't want to have to carry more than one "device" to access both State Department mail and personal mail. "One device would be simpler."
BS. She acts as though she's unaware that you can have many more than a single email account on a single mobile device. I can't buy that. She's smart enough, or has consultants smart enough to run a private e-mail server, but not smart enough to configure a single device for multiple addresses? I have a dozen e-mail addresses for personal affairs and different businesses activities, and several of them are on my "single" device. I suspect many of you, along with millions of Americans do the same.
In fact, we know that she used multiple addresses on that single server/domain:
email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, Hillary@clintonemail.com, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
From "Slick Willy" to "Slick Hilly".
Thank you, John the Econ, for your trenchant insight. Your check's in the email.
