Suffering political fatigue? Just think of “Fog.”

Someone, I think it was a journalist, on National Public Radio was speaking about an interview this morning by the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart with Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado. The person speaking, it might have even been Capehart, told NPR that even if Hillary Clinton is elected presidents the Republicans will continue to hound her for the email scandal and the Benghazi attacks in which U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens along with Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, and two CIA security contractors, were killed by terrorists.

That is unnerving, that should Clinton win the election over presumed GOP candidate Donald Trump, the Republican congressmen and other grudge-holding party hacks, will continue to spend millions of the taxpayers’ dollars for made-up scandals — Benghazi and e-mail — intended to hurt Clinton and the Democrats.

Lynch says she was speaking about her so-called chance encounter with former President Bill Clinton when he boarded her plane and they supposedly chatted about “their grandchildren” and matters that didn’t have anything to do with the Justice Department probe of Hillary or, as Bernie Sanders said, ” … her damn e-mail!”

Of course, if the American electorate has any sense, they will reject Trump by the highest margin ever, and perhaps send a solid majority of Democrats to the Senate. Maybe even a sufficient number of Democrats will make their way to the U.S. House of Representatives.

Even so, that is depressing news, for the non-Dem-hating public to be told to expect the same old bullshit over and over ad nauseam. Of course, if we have to endure such foolishness, it will be the voters’ fault. The people elected Billy Jeff Clinton, and may just elect Hillary R. Clinton. HRC is a much better choice than Donald Trump on any day. But I think Hillary barely edges Trump when it comes to likeability.

I am not so sure as whether all Democrats are so wild about Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., as a vice presidential candidate to run with Clinton. I mean, politically, she is a firebrand and seems to be a progressive in the line of Bernie Sanders, the independent/Democrat, U.S. senator from Vermont. While that might be good for political unity among the Democrats, I just think the progressive wing of the party is going where they will just end up disappointed.

A hefty Democrat majority in Congress, both House and Senate, is a requirement for pushing measures forward such as a $15 per hour minimum wage or free public college tuition. Whether either Democrat wishes have a chance in hell, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens in November. And, as well as likely beyond.

I feel a major case of campaign fatigue coming on. However, I expect I will let it come and go, to paraphrase Carl Sandburg, like fog on little cat feet.

The fog comes

on little cat feet.

It sits looking

over harbor and city

on silent haunches

and then moves on.
