You Mean I'm Supposed to be Mad at the Russians for Exposing OUR Corruption?

There's just one question I have. Assuming what the CIA said is true, and the Russians hacked emails which swayed the election, am I supposed to be mad at the Russians? For exposing our corruption? Now that is the strangest notion I ever heard.

So it's not about whether the emails were true or false. The Clinton campaign has already been caught lying specifically about the emails' authenticity. UK Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald said in a column:

"Back in October, when WikiLeaks was releasing emails from the John Podesta archive, Clinton campaign officials and their media spokespeople adopted a strategy of outright lying to the public, claiming — with no basis whatsoever — that the emails were doctored or fabricated and thus should be ignored. "

But it turns out they were not doctored or fabricated, or Wikileaks would be getting sued right now. You never want questions in court you don't have good answers for. Neither Podesta nor the DNC have denied the leaks' authenticity. The parties are not upset because the documents are not authentic. They are upset because they got leaked.

So let me see if I get this straight. I ask again, am I supposed to be mad at the Russians for exposing OUR corruption? Shouldn't we be talking a little more about the corruption itself? Oh right. That's a drag. Who ripped the lid off the truth is more important than the truth itself.

Should I say, hey, Russians, could you really not do that anymore? I want to be kept in the dark about the corruption in our government.

The truth is this, which is maybe why they keep up at this silly charade. Even if the Russians did hack the emails, (and Julian Assange says they didn't,) I've got one word for you: #Pizzagate.
