Something maybe not that important that bugged me ..


I was looking into the Panama thing in Hillary's emails and came across this:

http://graphics.wsj.com/hillary-clinton-email-documents/pdfs/C05774372.pdf

Philippe Reines says

"With 7ish months left, plenty of time to run up the score on total countries. 110 is a reasonable goal. Here are the 94 countries left to choose from (asterisks appear next to countries you visited prior to becoming SecState, but not since - so they would count): "


So I read that and said to myself "Man, what a dick. Sending childish crap like a country count to a Secretary of State of the United States. Like she doesn't have more important things to do or think about in her busy schedule, etc instead of fussing around with a silly country visited count and running up the score - as if that seriously matters compared to her serious duties."

Next email I see is a reply from Hillary:
http://graphics.wsj.com/hillary-clinton-email-documents/pdfs/C05794958.pdf

"Fw: 22 Additional Countries ... Pis print."


My reaction: omfg

3. Oh, I know.

But 11 weeks or so before Benghazi, maybe she would have been wiser to keep her eye on the friggin' ball rather than the Oval Office.
