“I’m With Hil 2020”

The Hillary Clinton 2020 campaign seems to have gathered some steam on Friday when anonymous sources leaked that the 2006 failed candidate signed a big money deal with the company BleachBit.  The company was little-known until Clinton’s staff used the software to wipe her electronic devices clean even though they were under court order to preserve them.   “it seemed like a natural fit for us as she really put us on the map” said an executive of the company who did not want to be named

Rule 13

One of the most quoted “rules” in Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals book is Rule 13.  This rule is under the tactics section of the book and that is a better way to think of this.  In this tactic, you are taught to select a specific target, a person.  Government bodies (i.e. Congress, etc.) or buildings (i.e. Washington, city hall, etc.) allow blame to be shifted too easily. 

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

He screwed a lot of people,
But it seems the pols. they hide now.

But it seems she just up and left town.
I just looked around and she’s gone.
