A sizable percentage of the population really seems to have bought into the post-election notion that Hillary Clinton’s email scandal was nothing more than a witch hunt over the sloppiness of her record-keeping, not her mishandling of classified information and refusal to communicate through official and secure channels.

Even Barack Obama had her back, explaining to Fox News what the government’s policy on sensitive information said if you read between the lines: “there’s classified, and then there’s classified,” he explained, adding that “there’s stuff that is really top secret top secret” and stuff that is “open source.”

So even the word “email” can be triggering to progressives when used in a political context. Vice President Mike Pence, for example, complained Saturday afternoon that the AP had published his wife’s private email address.

So the AP printed Karen Pence’s private email address? Too bad for her, huh?

Hush, you. This is the most fun some of these people will have this weekend; don’t spoil it with facts.

It’s not just Hillary that has people breaking out the world’s smallest violin for Pence; it turns out the AP’s publication of his wife’s private email is karma in more ways than one.
