Conflicting Stories

The NYT on Mrs. Clinton's email server kerfuffle:

She said she had only convenience in mind in choosing to use just a personal email account.

“I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal emails instead of two,” she explained. She asked, in effect, that voters trust that she was disclosing more of them than she needed to — and even to credit her with an unusual degree of transparency.
Then, further down in the article:

Mrs. Clinton’s explanation that it was more convenient to carry only one device seemed at odds with her remark last month, at a technology conference in Silicon Valley, that she uses multiple devices, including two kinds of iPads, an iPhone and a BlackBerry. She said then: “I don’t throw anything away. I’m like two steps short of a hoarder.”

At one point on Tuesday, Mrs. Clinton said the emails she had deleted contained “personal communications from my husband and me.” But on Sunday, a spokesman for Mr. Clinton told reporters that the former president had “sent two emails in his life.”
 OK,  so she doesn't want to carry two devices, but she uses multiple devices. Sure it's a contradiction. But didn't Hillary know, and don't the reporters know, that you can use more than one email account on any device? Why even make up an excuse like that?

Of course Hillary knew that she didn't need two devices. And she should know that most of us know that. Was she just trying to sway the technologically clueless? Those who can't work their remotes, call videos "Youtubes",  and  regularly answer e-mails from Nigerian princes? Is that voting block large enough to risk insulting the intelligence of all the rest of us?

I'll say it again; she would probably have been a better president than Barack Obama. But not that much better. And we certainly can't survive another crypto-Marxist in the White House now. Especially not one who thinks we're all stupid.
