Re: “The Skinny

There was no regulation about using communication techniques when Clinton was SecState and those regulations have since been put in place. Neither Powell nor Rice took paticular care and actually used their own laptops, far from a DOS communications system that guards classified material coming and going. Powell admits he just shredded his, no one knows where or when or if it was a safe shredding. Perhaps Clinton was careless, perhaps not, but with republicans desperate to stick mud on her like a mud fight in a bar, I'm sure this insignificant and unimportant crap will continue to scare uninformed and not very bright people into hating her appropropriately enough to vote against her. No one sees the irony of millons spent on hearings while the republicans cry "we're broke unless it's another hearing to prove the non-provable." If Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden have managed to release every damaging piece of information ever owned or sent by DC to anyone else, causing untold damage to the USG, what the hell difference does it make. For that matter, when will we find the 20 million emails Bush conveniently "lost," or a professional and proficient secretary who accidentally deleted 20 minutes of a Nixon tape. Grow up and move on!

Re: “The Skinny

Be kind to Ally she's tried to make a difference in Pima county.
Her behavior is a direct result of her alien abduction a few years ago.
Just ask her!

Cognitive dissonance is a bitch, ain't it?

Will you visit Mrs Miller when she's a guest of the state?

Re: “The Skinny

There was nothing illegal about Ally using private email and i have never said that there was, TWIAJ. But those private emails that discussed public business are public records and Ally has repeatedly denied that she did use private email while conducing public business. And by withholding those records, she is now under investigation by the Attorney General's Office because refusing to produce public records when you are asked for them is a crime.

Seriously, if you're going to call a publication a joke, it would help if you had some sense of what the story is about. Otherwise, you lose credibility because you clearly don't understand what you are talking about.

Re: “The Skinny

bahaha as if playing private email is a comparison to Hilary. Where did Ally have to take a required annual training saying that she couldn't use a private email vs Hilary who was a federal employee and ALL have to take training. In the training it specifically states not to forward government mail of any kind to a private account. Nice try Tucson weekly.

Re: “The Skinny

Re: “The Skinny

Can't agree with the Trump-Twitter-type comments. However, at his age, I'd like McCain to consider retiring gracefully instead of getting pushed out by members of this current carefree and crude Trump inspired "base" of McCain's party. Bacteria have more class.

Re: “The Skinny

"I will give Ratt my approval. He's right."

There are a few things wrong with this statement:

1) At least one of Ratt's personalities has identified themselves as a woman. The other 5 personalities, well, who knows?
2) "Please retire McCain" is beyond correct. I say beyond correct because what should be said is, "Retire now, you useless self serving P.O.S." The Maverick has not given a shit about the average person since sometime in the 1980s. Hell, the way things are going now, he probably never actually did. I'm sure his first wife would have some interesting things to say about that.
3) "McSally has earned (!?) re-election." Just as franklymydears said: "Then I read his (sic?) second sentence." Enough Said.
4) The statement was posted by Julie Heston. Check out the other ignorant horse shit she (He? Who knows?) has posted in the past. Son of Enough Said.

Re: “The Skinny

"How stupid does McCain think we are?" Assuming you are speaking for the GOP, the depths of your stupidity have yet to be plumbed. Oh that's right . . . you just nominated an idiot as your king!

Re: “The Skinny

Bulletin - Kelli Ward is opposing McCain in the Republican primary next month. Ward is McCain's nemesis, not Kirkpatrick. Get your reporting straight, or are you trying to throw the primary election to McCain with these erroneous news bites? Along with The Weekly's slanted reporting on Supervisor Ally, the outsized biases of this rag make it a laughingstock.

Re: “The Skinny

Forty days left and John McCain can’t seem to do anything Right (pun intended). His people at Reform Institute in Alexandria Virginia are spending his millions like water on a fake primary candidate who just can’t stop stealing and on poorly produced Television ads that are so clumsily written they make us all laugh about their pathetically arrogant soon-to-be-fired boss.
McCain ads claim former Arizona State Senator, Kelli Ward has voted on Federal funding Bills in company with Bernie Sanders and Raul Grijalva (a US Senator and a US Congressman).
McCain ads also claim veterans are angry as Hell at State Legislator, Kelli Ward because she voted against some Federal Armed Service Funding Bills.

How stupid does McCain think we are? We know Bernie and Raul vote in Washington. We know Kelli Ward voted in Phoenix. We know Veterans like us aren’t dumb enough to confuse Phoenix, Arizona with Washington DC. McCain apparently thinks Vets are stupid and Arizona Republicans are stupid.
So the old fool has people in Virginia who admit throwing his money away buying prime time TV spots to insult the intelligence of his Arizona Voters.
Funny or pathetic? Forty Days…
