Long, Grim Excerpt From That Jon Ronson (???) Book on Social Media Shaming
This chapter about that Adriana woman who got those guys fired for making "dongle" jokes that reached Her Preciousness' dainty ears... Spoiler Alert: She's still proud she did that and angry at them for saying she got them fired (which she did, but she doesn't like being blamed, so that's further Oppression of her).... she comes across, frankly, like a religious maniac. Must read (Do also note the horrible shit that was then sent to her in similar Ravening Wolfpack tactics... also bad, though I have to say, it is amusing that she still can't see the stuff she objects to is the same shit she did. For this religious lunatic, it's totally different, because the White Male Oppressor is Of The Devil.)

T. Beckett Adams: After initial email shock, Hillary Clinton's defenders circle the wagons
"Other Clinton supporters have begun pushing the theme that what appears to be an abuse of power is actually an example of empowerment for the former first lady and New York senator. 'The Hillary grow-your-own-email-server thing is deeply disturbing, possibly illegal but [you] know a teensy bit badass,' Politico's Glenn Thrush gushed." (Emphasis added.) Related tweet. [rdbrewer]

Experts: Clinton Bought ‘High-End Security’ but Forgot Last Step, Left Server Vulnerable
"Evidently, Clinton went to great lengths to secure her server but made a very simple, fatal flaw that left her vulnerable to attacks: she did not buy an encryption key. 'They never took that extra step. They used the default. Security experts say it is not as secure as it should have been,' Michael Riley said." [rdbrewer]

Airwheel. Because walking is so old fashioned, don't ya know. Link goes to YouTube. [Weirddave]
Curiouser and curiouser. Trying to reproduce the AP's claims about the Clinton's home e-mail server, I came up with some very different -- and disturbing, if accurate -- results. I'd appreciate feedback and critiques on my findings. UPDATE: got a Chappaqua tie-in; details at the post. [Fritzworth]

Peter Sullivan: Cruz unveils ObamaCare alternative
"Cruz's bill, called the Health Care Choices Act, would allow people to buy health insurance across state lines, long a Republican health policy goal. It would also repeal Title I of ObamaCare, which would undo much of the law, including the mandate to buy insurance, the insurance marketplaces and subsidies to help people afford coverage."

Ron Christie, The Daily Beast: You Better Believe Hillary Clinton’s Emails Matter

Frank Bruni, NY Times: Hillary’s Messy Habits
"[O]ne of the arguments I frequently heard in favor of her presumed candidacy for the presidency was that she’d been vetted like nobody’s ever been vetted, with no surprises left.... But that assessment shortchanged the couple’s ability to make new messes. It ignored the 'Groundhog Day' in which they star." They're disgusting people, so it keeps happening. [rdbrewer]
