How very tedious.

The Washington Post has a story today about how the House Republicans and various other anti-Clinton players plan on continuing the never-ending investigative charade if Clinton is elected. Evidently, they hope we're all so sick of it that we'll vote for Trump in desperation just to make it stop.

Well, that isn't going to happen.

“It’s a target-rich environment,” the Republican said in an interview in Salt Lake City’s suburbs. “Even before we get to Day One, we’ve got two years’ worth of material already lined up. She has four years of history at the State Department, and it ain’t good.”

Actually, what you have is years worth of material that has been misrepresented, and then picked to death by a media that does not practice safe journalism.

I have faith that Democrats in the House, especially Rep. Elijah Cummings, will work towards minimizing what is a monumental waste of time and taxpayer money. I also hope that the Press will have learned not to take what organizations like Judicial Watch say at face value and that most Americans are just sick to death of the Clinton emails—not to mention angry at the media fawning all over material stolen from a private email account of a private citizen by agents for a foreign power seeking to undermine the election.

Regardless, when it gets out of hand, we'll be here with our trusty keyboards, ready to correct misinformation and to ensure none of these bad actors get the last word.

I do find it sad, though, that our first woman President has to fight bogus battles created by men with too much time on their hands and too little care about the real problems facing this country. Sad, but not surprised.

Can you help us out?
