Here’s what we need in this miserable election between runaway statism’s version of Scylla and Charybdis — a little comic relief from Scylla’s liberal media amen corner:
As parody, the piece would be brilliant. It assures us that when Shrillary Rotten becomes president, people “will weep from joy” — just like they do in North Korea on Kim Jong Un’s birthday.
Meanwhile, back in reality, Hillary is disliked by a growing majority of the population:
If she manages to squeak past the worst major party candidate ever, she may be the least popular incoming president ever. Many will vote for her only to stop Trump.
For further laughs, the piece asserts that the most conspicuously dishonest figure in modern politics is “more honest than most politicians.” It breezily dismisses the criminal investigations hanging over her head with the claim that no one hacked her illegal email server. Actually, the FBI is 99% sure that at least five foreign intelligence agencies hacked it.
The Atlantic doesn’t seem to care about maintaining credibility anymore. Maybe they figure it’s too late anyway.
