“Americans across the political spectrum agree that political contests should be decided by the power of ideas, not the skill of foreign hackers,”

Doesn’t much of the agitation about “Russian interference” refer to the injection and amplification of ideas (memes) they don’t like?

SOLUTION: Stop writing stupid shit in an email. Assume that everything you write is going to be made public.

People have been saying this since the ‘90’s. These types didn’t listen then, and don’t listen now.

The problem, IMO, or at least part of it, is the feeling of entitlement on the part of almost everybody involved in the Democratic campaign: They thought they could write whatever they wanted, because they were too special for anybody to publish it.

I suspect they also thought they were entitled to treat qualified systems engineers like serfs, meaning the good ones wouldn’t work for them and they didn’t feel like they had to listen to even the ones who were.

These people aren’t part of the “meritocracy”, they’re parasites on it. Why should a silly power-grabber like Hillary Clinton think she’s somehow superior to qualified systems professionals, such that she doesn’t have to listen to them? Much less useless hangers-on like Podesta?

There is a myriad of reasons why the worst qualified man in history is now one of the most powerful men in the world.

Have you considered that you might be wrong? Mr. Trump is far more qualified than anybody in the “Democrat” campaign, simply because he knows how to listen to subordinates who know more than he does.
