Does it matter? No. She is running as a Republican, so she is exempt from all requirements for truth-telling, morality, patriotism, intelligence, curiosity, work ethic, success, geez from any and everything. What really gets my goat is that Democrats are crucified for bullshit (both stupid and untrue) reasons while republicans avoid responsibility for any of the egregious things that they do.
What’s the solution? I don’t know. They get away with it because that is the “narrative”. It is the narrative because that is what the “left-wing MSM®” peddles. Why do they peddle it, because that what gets ratings. Why does it get ratings? Because it reinforces the meme created and peddled by the “left-wing MSM®” since at least the mid-1970s.
Maybe the collapse of the daily papers will change it. Maybe not. All I know is that it is a major part of the really BAD decisions that the electorate has made over the past decades. To top off the bad decisions voters make, the Republicans are back at the mid-20th century voter disenfranchisement that they so successfully used in 2000 and 2004. Great.
