An open letter to Hillary Clinton

Dear Ms. Clinton: My name is Daniel Kinch. I’m a lowly leftist blogger. Worse, I am the simple artist–I sing, I dance, I perform the obscure agitprop play. I have been writing about the primaries and  I haven’t exactly been friendly to your campaign. But I’m a realist. I don’t think you can be elected, […]
