What should we make of the DNC servers getting hacked by the Russians? I admit, when the Clinton surrogate first floated that possibility yesterday morning, I rolled my eyes and thought it was a ridiculous thing to say. As it turns out, he was right.
So what does it mean? First off, isn’t anything secure anymore? I know that political espionage is common and I know that our country does it too. Still, you’d think that the security for the DNC and the RNC too would be at the highest possible level. Maybe it was and it just doesn’t matter. Since I can’t speak with any authority or knowledge about that, let’s move on to something that we can all ponder and respond to.
Why did they hack into the server and why did they wait until now to release the information thru wikileaks? The reasonable and obvious conclusion is that their intent was to damage the chances of Hillary winning the election and that they would rather have Sauron, I mean Trump, win. Is there any other reasonable conclusion that we can draw about the motive? If you can think of one, let’s hear it.
If you’re planning on voting for Sauron, does the fact that Putin wants him to win too give you pause? If not, why not? The intelligence community thinks it’s a very big deal.
If nothing else, this story give me an excuse to post this wonderful song from Renaissance, who were a hidden gem of a prog band in their heyday.
Red blood, white snow
He knows, frozen rivers won’t flow
So cold, so true
Mother Russia, he cries for you
