God, Comey, and the Clinton Email Scandal

The Wall Street Journal had an otherwise interesting editorial the other day that discussed Hillary Clinton’s rising unpopularity despite effectively securing the Democrat nomination “barring an act of God or FBI Director Jim Comey[.]”  I won’t quibble about God, who presumably could easily short-circuit anyone’s nomination, assuming that was on the heavenly agenda.  But I do have a problem with the second part of the assertion, which is commonplace among conservatives these days, even in the rarified offices of the Journal, and a little disturbing in its flippant disregard of pretty obvious realities.  Neither I nor anyone else seems to know what the FBI director’s intentions are in the Clinton email affair, but whether he intends to refer charges to the Justice Department or not, Hillary Clinton – barring supernatural intervention – is going to win the Democrat nomination.
