I can't remember all of the points, but the best summation of Hillary's server scandal was something like this: There is no server Okay, there is a server, but no classified material passed through it Okay, some classified information passed through it, but it wasn't marked classified when it passed through Okay, some was classified when it was passed through, but we didn't know it was classified Okay, we knew it was classified, but we didn't remove the classified...
She fell and hit her head in 2012 and there has been extensive speculation that she was concussed and also had a blood clot, and that these have impacted her cognitive abilities. There have been lots of reports of her looking frail on the campaign trail and that she's micromanaged beyond what one might expect of a presidential candidate, due to her poor health.
She is absolutely an awful candidate. She's shrill and unlikeable. Any time she is subjected to actual questions and followups she looks horrible. She and the press have a script and any deviations from that script are problematic for her. I also think she has serious health problems.

I think they're reasonably good values and I've ordered two allocations in the last few weeks. The newsletter came out today for...
Some wines this weekend: Occhipinti SP68 Nero D'Avola/Frappato (forget the vintage): really good and interesting, spicy with some zip. Like the wines from this producer a lot. 2011 Pernot Puligny Montrachet, Foliateres: Very good, if a bit young. A bit more round than I would have expected, got better as it opened up. 1990 Haut Brion: a stunning bottle of this wine. Open from the get go and got better. Made a Bdx fan out of a bunch of Burg drinkers. Love this...

The Joly we had in advance of the Acker BYO was a dry, botrytised wine. It was also, I thought, most foul.
