Commentary doesn’t know what to say. I am talking about the meeting on the tarmac between President Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Talk about handing the GOP a ton of ammo. Here is the latest from a story on the internet:

Under bipartisan fire following a private meeting with former President Clinton even as her Justice Department investigates Hillary Clinton over her secret email server, Attorney General Loretta Lynch will announce on Friday that she will defer to non-political subordinates on whether to bring charges against the likely Democratic presidential nominee.

Here is what Commentary said yesterday:

Commentary thinks Secretary Hillary Clinton is one of the most qualified folks ever to run for president. Commentary also thinks President Bill Clinton is one of the most brilliant political figures of the last 30 years or so. But sometimes even the most brilliant make bonehead moves.

A little, little part of me thinks maybe President Clinton knew what he was doing. Just a little, little part of me thinks that.   We will never know.

Sooner or later both Secretary Hillary Clinton and President Clinton are going to have to publicly address the f___-up.

Jose Altuve leads MLB in what two major offensive catergories?

This would be nice. Check this tweet:

Why Newt Gingrich is reportedly the frontrunner to be Donald Trump’s running mate http://www.vox.com/2016/7/1/12060486/newt-gingrich-trump-vp-running-mate?utm_campaign=vox&utm_content=article%3Atop&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter … via @voxdotcom

I really don’t think Dems could ask for a better running mate for Trump.

Commentary was at a dinner last night with some noted politicos and nobody had a clue as to what was going on in the SD 13 race. Here is from a Rebecca Elliott article today in the Chron:

State Rep. Garnet Coleman and former City Councilman C.O. Bradford have decided not to run for Rodney Ellis’ state Senate seat, citing a desire to retain seniority in the state House and concerns about the electoral process, respectively. 

That leaves state Reps. Senfronia Thompson and Borris Miles, and former City Controller Ron Green vying for Senate District 13, which stretches from northeast Fort Bend County to Houston’s northeast corner.


C.O. Bradford also was considering joining the race, but said Tuesday that he had decided against it because of the requirement that precinct chairs vote publicly.

“Casting a secret ballot is considered almost sacred in the democratic process,” Bradford said. “I opt not to pressure citizens to compete and cast open votes that defy a very meaningful component of our democracy.”

I am going to disagree with Chief Bradford. Precinct Chairs are elected by the primary voters so they don’t get to cast secret ballots.

Jose Altuve leads MLB in batting average with a .357 clip and in base hits with 111 of course.

We are now 8 ½ back.   I sure do hope they keep playing the way they did in June. We have to take advantage of the 10 game homie.  Carlos Correa bobble heads tomorrow and patriotic t-shirts on Monday.  I will be there tonight.
