You know its bad when Maureen Dowd makes some of the same points you have, such as the irony of lawyers, such as Bill and Hillary, who are experts at skirting the law.
“So many lawyers . . . so little law,” she wrote in her column.
“Hillary willfully put herself above the rules — again — and a president, campaign and party are all left twisting themselves into pretzels defending her.”
Of course, nothing new here. It seems to be one of the major storylines in the Clintons’ careers.
“Their vast carelessness drags down everyone around them, but they persevere, and even thrive.”
Dowd describes them offering a Faustian bargain.
“The Clintons work hard but don’t play by the rules. Imagine them in the White House with the benefit of low expectations.”
