Over the past weeks, as the delicious spectacle of Hillary Clinton, the Leona Helmsley of classified information, being roasted like a pig on a spit over her criminal abuse and misuse of classified information.

John Boehner’s Career At An End

Everyone Hates Hillary Clinton
Lately, everyone has been focused on the emailgate scandal and the political implications for the Clinton campaign. I suppose that’s fair, since it’s an identifiable news story – but the story itself is really just a concrete example of an overarching problem that will likely doom Hillary’s candidacy: Hillary Clinton is just one of the most unlikable people in America.
