Just when you thought it was safe to drop the Weiner jokes, the perv ex-Congressman rises to the occasion.
This time he may well take Hillary down with him.
This story is great for so many reasons.
First, it has sex, which is a heck of a lot more exciting than shady finances and illegal email games. It is catnip for reporters who have pretty much yawned their way through the most egregious top-level law-breaking in my lifetime.
Second, it has weird sex, which reminds everyone that whatever Donald Trump may have done or said a decade or more ago, he can't hold a candle to the perverts in Hillary's inner circle. The Trumpster may have hit on a reporterette or two, but that's a far cry from dick-texting jail bait.
Third, it puts the words "FBI Investigation" and "Hillary" back in the news, reminding people that she's actually quite crooked. Lots of liberals like to think of themselves as ethical people, and it's going to be very difficult for them to work up the enthusiasm to go to the polls and vote for someone who might be indicted.
Fourth, it is entirely spontaneous - a story that originated outside of Trump, away from Trump and can in no way be linked with him. Any response coming from the Clinton camp directed at Trump (say another half dozen women claiming he used potty mouth around them during the Reagan administration) will look desperate and weak.
Fifth, and finally - there isn't a lot of time left. The end is within sight and folks are already starting to vote. Trump's base is on fire and Hillary's is in stunned shock. Remember: Hillary needs the black vote to turn out at Obama levels to stay in this. I'll go out on a limb and say it isn't going to happen.
Polling has never been less accurate, but one thing it can still do somewhat well is pick up trends. The trends have been moving against Hillary for a few days and this could well be the back-breaker.
I said several months ago that Hillary was in a very weak position because there was so much out there beyond her control. This is a perfect example of it.
The scary part (from her perspective) is that there is more waiting to hit. Wikileaks claims to be saving the best for last. Numerous articles point to the fact that she may have had other backups of her files on various other unsecured servers. The same people who hacked her chief of staff may also have those emails and have shared them freely.
Let us not forget, the Clintons have many enemies, and some are quite tech-savvy. It's not hard to imagine that next week we will see highly classified information that came from Herself directly. Not only will it destroy the FBI's earlier whitewash, it will drive home the point that she can't be trusted to be the Commander-in-chief.
Yeah, I know what you're saying: "That's been out there for months, so what?"
The difference is that we never got to see what was classified. All people saw was blanks and classification levels, which to the common man are mere gibberish. Heck, even Hillary doesn't know what they mean.
If such a dump hits, people will be able to see the whole email. It's one thing to have guess what those paragraphs say, it's another to have her outlining war plans or talking about military vulnerabilities.
And it will hammer her just when she's still reeling from being schlonged by Weiner, preventing her campaign from regaining any kind of control over the narrative.
As we say at the Posse: Brace for impact.
