5. Especially the last point

 In Hillaryland as depicted by Gowdyworld, the only work that mattered was that done by e-mail. People don’t meet, talk by phone, exchange classified cables, get briefed by aides, have conference calls or in-person meetings, or lunch or breakfast or dinner together. Their e-mail accounts, we’re supposed to believe, are their most tangible and important work product. So early on, Representative Susan Brooks, a former US attorney who knows better, produced a big pile of Clinton e-mail print-outs, alongside a little pile. The big one represented Clinton’s 2011 e-mail on Libya; the smaller pile her 2012 Libya oeuvre.

I was struck by the extreme focus on emails as I was watching that farce. I have worked in a few places, but in exactly none of my jobs was email the primary mode of communication. I know that it's important and very convenient, but in no way is it the only possible way of communication with colleagues.

As for their weird preoccupation with Blumenthal, what is so unusual about emails between friends, even ones offering advice?
