Certain dread diseases are not curable. They might go away for a while but eventually they come back with ugly pus-filled sores that itch, fester and ooze. They’re painful and embarrassing.
Hillary Clinton is like that.
Just when we thought she’d gone away, she’s flaring up worse than ever. She has a new book out, for which she’s started tours. You have to pay money to come to the book tour to hear her pitch this book that she wants you to pay money to buy to read about what a generous person she is.

Uh huh. OK, cutie pie.
These pirates of Antifa are men and women (and others, I suppose) of ages 20 to 60, going on 7, prancing around cities looking for sea monsters to slay. They pose as daring and darling individualists while chanting tired leftist slogans in unison.
