Hillary Harangue Open Thread

Friday, July 29, AD 2016

 

Like her hubby, I decided that the time I would have devoted to watching her speech was best used by me for sleep.  I did joke with my son that if we ever had to inflict torture on  adversaries in some sort of Mad Max post apocalyptic society, we could probably do worse than tying them up, placing them in a room, put the video of this speech on a recurring loop, and come back after twenty-four hours.  In any event post your reactions in the comboxes.  I have heard that she attacked Trump which strikes me as necessary but probably the wrong strategy.  Attacking Trump will allow him to dominate the next news cycle with answers, and if there is one thing I have learned about Trump this year, he thrives on bad publicity that would devastate other politicians.
