Several weeks ago, I despaired of politics sliding into the gutter as much in its rhetoric as in its execution.
To one perceived culprit – Hillary Clinton’s aide, Philippe Reines – I owe an apology. This proponent of foul-mouthed media relations is clearly only taking his lead from his boss’s boss.
Incidentally, I emailed Hillary Clinton’s office to ascertain her views on the way in which her boy Reines conducts himself on duty. Not so much as an acknowledgement.
