Dear-sweet-mother-of-pearl, this campaign season just will not end! It feels like we’ve been hearing about 2016 since 2013—probably because we have—but finally we have the major party conventions behind us. Also the Libertarian National Convention which blew the RNC and DNC out of the water when it came to brevity and weirdness. But

The recent FBI announcement of the scale of Secretary Clinton’s disregard for regulations when it came to her official government email has me at a loss for words. From the beginning, the “scandal” didn’t bother me ...

The recent FBI announcement of the scale of Secretary Clinton’s disregard for regulations when it came to her official government email has me at a loss for words.

Presidential candidates seemed caught between being in their “terrible two’s” and the awkward bully stage of junior high school.
