Much to the chagrin of Trumpeteers everywhere, Julian Assange and Wikileaks didn’t release any information that would be damning to the Hillary Clinton campaign, as expected. In fact, they didn’t release any information at all, instead baiting people to stay up into the wee hours just to get an ad for a book celebrating their 10th anniversary.
Ain’t No Thang
The reality is that nothing that Wikileaks has on Hillary will do anything to change the election. The media will spin it, her supporters don’t care, and the only alternative to Clinton is a narcissistic, sociopath named Donald Trump.
I’m no Hillary fan. But at least with her, you might get some of the same Obama policies, and then it will all be over in four years. But with Trump, we could be in World War Three within his first 100 days!
Same Ol’, Same Ol’
The thing is this: documents don’t mean anything. It’s one person’s word against another’s. There’s a saying used a lot today: “Video or it didn’t happen.” It means that, unless Assange can produce a video of Hillary doing or saying something completely extreme, nothing’s going to happen.
Everybody knows she’s done some really awful things. But when all you have is a document or e-mail, that’s not a lot to go on. I can say that my neighbor did this and that, or make a fake e-mail account and try to incriminate someone. It means nothing!
Face it, we’re screwed in this election no matter what. So let’s just try to ride out the next four years the best we can, press the reset button, and try again.
