Jonah Goldberg is right about Hillary Clinton:

Even if she wins, Hillary is significantly damaged...
During the Cold War, the Russians mastered the use of slow-acting poisons to kill victims long after they were stabbed with an umbrella tip. Fittingly, the WikiLeaks emails may act like ricin or anthrax, wreaking havoc on Clinton's presidency long after they're released. In a normal election year with a normal GOP nominee, the WikiLeaks revelations might prove fatal to Clinton's candidacy. Instead, it seems almost a sure thing that they will poison Clinton's presidency for years to come. The allegations of pay-for-play between her foundation and the State Department, her speeches to Wall Street, the animosity of some of her closest advisors for Catholics: All of these things will have a long half-life. As will her manifest lies about the use of her private server.
I suspect many Democrats are secretly hoping Hillary can be forced out before she causes too much damage to them.  Hillary Clinton will have to die or be impeached first, she will never voluntarily walk away.

You might want to consider a brandy or perhaps a Sidecar tonight...

As AoSHQ notes, today is the anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar
which is also the day that Lord Horatio Nelson died.  

The Late Lord Nelson: Pickled in Brandy (although some say rum)

Cocktail Recommendations:  Sidecar, Brady Old Fashioned, Various Rum Concoctions 

I thought the Sidecar was invented at the Ritz in Paris (I am not sure of the New Orleans connection in the link above) but it does make a tasty brandy cocktail (although a bit sweet for my taste). I would recommend lemon or lime in any cocktails tonight for the British Navy "Limey" connection.  

Rush Limbaugh: Don't get demoralized

Ben Stein Laments the Decline and Fall of America...

American Spectator: Goodbye, America

This is one big depressing time to be alive. Yes, we have probably never been safer, richer or the world at peace more (at least to objective statistics, when you consider America and the world as a whole). Yet we all know that is misleading. While we don't agree what it is, you can tell something bad is coming.

But what is worse (in a way), is how many young people are being taught to be miserable.  If anything is an argument for homeschooling, this Ben Stein piece is it.
