Ethical Slipping and Sliding

How about some choice gleanings from a Maureen Dowd column that comes as close as The New York Times ever does to excoriating the Clintons? Are you up for that? Here goes:
Obama was left in the awkward position of vouching for Hillary’s “steady judgment” to run an angry, violent, jittery nation on the very day that his F.B.I. director lambasted her errant judgment on circumventing the State Department email system, making it clear that she had been lying to the American public for the last 16 months.

“You’ve got a situation here where the woman who would be in charge of setting national security policy as president has been deemed by the F.B.I. unsuitable to safeguard and handle classified information,” Bill Savarino, a Washington lawyer specializing in security clearances, told the Times.

What should disturb Obama, who bypassed his own vice president to lay out the red carpet for Hillary, is that the email transgression is not a one off. It’s part of a long pattern of ethical slipping and sliding, obsessive secrecy and paranoia, and collateral damage.
MoDo doesn't agree, but my solution is to vote Trump. BTW, her column title has a cute, Big Bang Theory ring to it:
"The Clinton Contamination."
