It’s Who You Know - Steve Sailer

Will the FBI find any interesting emails from Hillary Clinton in the trove on the laptop of former congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Hillary’s gofer-in-chief Huma Abedin?
I don’t know. Hillary has survived in the national spotlight for a quarter of a century by boring her skeptics into apathy, and she may pull this off once again.
Nor am I going to predict how next week’s election will turn out. There are so many things in this world that few pay attention to that there doesn’t seem to be much reason to invest intense effort in trying to forecast what everybody else is trying to predict.
Especially when we’ll find out next week.
But I am fascinated by how much Hillary’s run for office is bringing out the petty side in elites by showing how much they take everything personally.
For example, Time magazine on Monday featured a noteworthy op-ed:
Robin Lakoff 12:27 PM ET
(Robin Lakoff is a professor of linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley, and the author of ‘Language and Woman’s Place’)
I am mad. I am mad because I am scared. And if you are a woman, you should be, too. Emailgate is a bitch hunt, but the target is not Hillary Clinton. It’s us.
Personally, I had assumed that the Democrat-supporting Berkeley linguistics professor named Lakoff was a man.
