you’ve probably heard all the ruckus about Hillary
Clinton and her use of her personal email account to conduct government
business. Yesterday she finally broke
her silence and gave us some reasonable and logical answers. And by “reasonable” and “logical” I actually
“I opted for convenience to use my personal e-mail account,
which was allowed by the State Department, because I thought it would be easier
to carry just one device for my work and for my personal e-mails, instead of
two,” she said. “Looking back, it would have been better if I’d simply used a
second e-mail account and carried a second phone, but at the time this didn’t
seem like an issue.”
No joke, I
have five email accounts linked to one device. And I’m really not that important. I use one for work, one for shopping, one for government business, one
for hiding dead bodies and one for cheating on my husband. Hillary could easily do the same. I’m not 100 percent certain, but I’m fairly
confident that the Secretary of State has access to someone in IT that could
link her accounts for her.
Hillary, I want to support you. I want to like you. I want to root for you. Stop making it so difficult.
Hillary explanation number two:
The vast majority of her work-related
emails were sent to the email accounts of work colleagues who were using their
official accounts. So therefore those
emails do exist on the State Department’s server.
reminds me of people that return things to Nordstrom just because technically
they’ll take anything back. It’s a purse
and Nordstrom carries purses, so they can just put this back there with all
their other purses because it’s sort of all the same. I’m just sending the purse back where it
belongs into the general purse population.
Hillary explanation number three:
“We went through a thorough process to identify all of my
work-related e-mails and deliver them to the State Department,” she said. “At
the end, I chose not to keep my private personal e-mails.” Emails that were,
“about planning Chelsea’s wedding or my mother’s funeral arrangements,
condolence notes to friends, as well as yoga routines, family vacations, the
other things you typically find in inboxes.” She added, “No one wants their
personal e-mails made public, and I think most people understand that and
respect that privacy.”
Work Email 101: Don’t send personal or private emails from
your job. Also don’t surf for porn while
on the job. The work-around isn’t to just
ditch your work email account and use a personal account while on the job. As much as I want to sympathize with Hillary,
there is absolutely nothing in my email that I would mind sharing with the
world. Whether the world cares or wants
to read it is a whole different story.
Hillary, I want to support
you. I want to like you. I want to root for you. Stop making it so difficult. Don’t insult people with stupid explanations
that make no sense and hold no weight. Were you talking smack about Ann Coulter? It’s totally fine, I
can’t stand her either. Whatever it is
you’ve got on that server can’t be that bad. We’ve already seen your heinous fashion flubs, we already know your
husband made some bad choices, and we’ve all got crap in our past. Please won’t you let us read about Chelsea’s
wedding plan and your yoga routines?
