FBI Director Comey jerks us around

It was a peaceful Sunday afternoon until FBI Director James Comey destroyed the day with yet another letter, this time saying there's no problem in the Huma Abedin emails.

I'm so sick of this election being jerked around by his letters!

There's no time now to undo the damage done by his letter 9 days earlier.

We've endured dt claims that there will be an indictment, she will go to prison...

And now Comey tells us all that fuss was over nothing.  No problem in the emails.  

But it's only a day and a half before voting begins.  Democrats can't even begin to undo the damage done by ten days of claims of terrible new emails that will lead to an indictment.

And dt continues to make those charges, even though the FBI now says there will be no indictment.

As one commentator said, it's a bone the Trump supporters won't let go of.

I was pulling weeds in my garden when I heard the news.  Others were watching football games, riding bicycles, barbecuing, listening to The Moth Radio Hour, enjoying a quiet afternoon with their families.

But suddenly we have to drop everything, listen to the latest election screaming, and realize that the Republicans had day after day to beat up on Hillary Rodham Clinton, while she has a day and a half to try to inform voters that the noise amounted to nothing.

No candidate for president ever had these unfair blows hit him so close to the election, the way she has.

It's not a coincidence that this brutal treatment is being done to the first major female candidate for the presidency.

Powerful forces in American society don't want a woman president, and they will go to any lengths to keep her from winning.

She will win, but without the Democratic majority she needs in the House to accomplish her goals once she gets to the White House.  

I think we will get a Senate that is majority Democratic again, but if we don't, it will be thanks to FBI Director James Comey.

All I want to do is go to bed and pull the covers over my head... but Hillary fights on bravely, and so must we all.
