State Department disables email security for the Queen

Unbelievable.  Associated Press: "Emails: State Dept. scrambled on trouble on Clinton's server."
State Department staffers wrestled for weeks in December 2010 over a serious technical problem that affected emails from then-Secretary Hillary Clinton's home email server, causing them to temporarily disable security features on the government's own systems, according to emails released Wednesday.
The emails were released under court order Wednesday to the conservative legal advocacy group Judicial Watch, which has sued the State Department over access to public records related to the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee's service as the nation's top diplomat between 2009 and 2013.
The emails, reviewed by The Associated Press, show that State Department technical staff disabled software on their systems intended to block phishing emails that could deliver dangerous viruses. They were trying urgently to resolve delivery problems with emails sent from Clinton's private server.
And then, a couple of weeks after the State Department scramble, with security disabled - surprise! - the Clinton server was hit by a hack attack.  Not to worry: there's no "evidence" the hack was successful...or a failure, either.

Extra - Red State: "For the convenience on one elderly harridan, the entire email system of the State Department was made more vulnerable to foreign penetration."

That'll be President Elderly Harridan to you.

So you'll settle for "President Elderly Harridan", hmm? Good move, considering the plethora of other accurate possibilities, starting with President Crooked Hillary.

This story provides quite the preview of what the major function of many executive branch departments would be in a Rodham Clinton presidency. They'd be preoccupied with cleaning up the endless messes she'd continuously leave in her wake due to her inept and insatiable corruption.

"Quite the review of what would be," hyuk yuk, good one. Your "BEHOLD the Trump surge and tremble!" thread is so bookmarked.

Wrinkly McHelltwat is going to be your president for the next 4 to 8 years, depending on Dr. Karl Rove's level of acumen in diagnosing her fatal brain injuries. For nearly 25 years, every conservative attempt to torpedo Hillary Clinton has been a complete failure -- which is why Barack Obama really should be a great Republican hero. Like a bad rom-com, you guys just can't see a true conservative icon when he's been standing right there in front of you.

Hillary 100, GOP zip. I'd say her corruption has been fully ept.

Your "BEHOLD the Trump surge and tremble!" thread... Ooooh yeah - I knew that thread was going to take up residence rent-free in your head for a loooooong time! Keeping track of your unprompted references to it is fun.

Would love to chat more, but don't have time right now; I'm too busy dusting off and tuning up my Poll Skewer and Transmogrifier. It's a chore to go through and remove all the references to Romney in the code.

Oh, SNAP, with one sentence you expertly transformed your own refusal to evaluate polling data and your previous errors into somehow being a psychotic failing of mine! That's totally convincing! And your originality in "rent-free/head" is comedically intimidating, too. I see I'm going to have to up my game just to lose respectably, which is something I have in common with Donald Trump.
