if we can only get one WaPo writer to spend 63 hours on Hillary’s State Department emails –those that haven’t been illegally erased– combined with follow up analysis of with whom she was most frequently emailing and what the foreign intelligence agencies which were almost certainly monitoring her traffic in real time were learning thereby– we could get some important reporting done.
The Rubio piece by Samuels is actually very interesting. Having spent thousands of hours in audiences watching and waiting to address various local government bodies on various land-use issues as a lawyer, and scores of hours actually at the podium, as well as two decades as a state and local-appointed official in public hearings, I know very well the deadly dull run-of-the-mill routine as well as the overarching necessity of elected and appointed officials being accountable to real people as opposed to bureaucrats in offices who don’t even have to answer their phones. It is a credit to Samuels that he did the story and more to Rubio that he did the time in local office. Every American political career begun in such an office is unlikely to forget just who it is the EPA is ruining with its sweeping diktats issued from D.C.
