The most comprehensive list of reasons Madame BleachBit is unfit I've come across

I'm going to give you a lengthy excerpt from a post at Bookworm Room, but I think I should explain why. You see, otherwise, I'd open myself to charges of opportunism. What I mean is that the overall point of her post is one I cannot bring myself to agree with. However, in the course of making it. she provides the most comprehensive bullet-point-style list of Madame BleachBit's disqualifications I've ever come across.

It will no doubt be a handy reference for years to come, whatever shape this November's catastrophe takes.

While in Little Rock, allegedly turned $1,000 into $100,000 trading in cattle futures . . . in just ten months, having never traded before.
While in Little Rock, was a lawyer for and investor in the corrupt Whitewater real estate dealings — and then destroyed and/or hid legal records to hide that work.
While in the White House, in an effort to pass taxpayer money to friends, fired the entire non-partisan White House travel office, accused them of financial misdealings, and effectively destroyed the life of the head of the travel office.
While in the White House, failed utterly in her assigned task of revamping the American health system.
When leaving the White House, attempted to steal White Houseproperty, which she was then forced to return to the American people.
While in the Senate and while in the State Department, authorized her Foundation to accept huge financial donations from nations that have enshrined in law deadly discrimination against women, Jews, Christians, Hindus (and all other religions), and homosexuals.
While in the State Department, “entirely coincidentally,” granted huge favors (including America’s uranium rights) to people or nations that had made significant donations to the Clinton Foundation or had paid obscenely unrealistic speaking fees to Bill Clinton.
While in the State Department, in direct violation of the law, set up an unprotected, unsecured private server through which she ran all State Department business, without regard to national security concerns or the safety of assets in the field.
When her State Department emails were requested, committed felonious spoliation of records by instructing her server manager to destroy them so that they could never be recovered.
While in the State Department, embarked on a “reset” with Russia that resulted in a breakdown of American relations with Russia and gave Putin the go-ahead to invade Ukraine and take over in Syria.
While in the State Department, was the “brains” behind the takedown of Qaddafi, even though he had been neutral since 2007 and even though America’s engagement with Libya violated various laws — a policy that enabled Libya to become an ISIS stronghold.
While in the State Department, ignored regular requests for heightened security at the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi and, indeed, switched to less reliable local security.
While in the State Department, ignored frantic requests for aid when an al Qaeda affiliate conducted an attack against the diplomatic and CIA compounds in Benghazi, resulting in the horrific murder of four Americans, including an American ambassador.
While in the State Department, lied to family members of the dead Americans and then to the American public about the nature of the al Qaeda attack, claiming it was just mob rage about a video.
While in the State Department, tried to lend an air of verisimilitude to an otherwise unconvincing narrative by arranging to have the maker of that irrelevant video arrested and imprisoned, which has effectively destroyed his life.
While in the State Department, failed to take advantage of the Green Revolution that could have weakened the Mullahs’ hold in Iran (and, we now know, she did so as part of Obama’s long-term plan to elevate Iran to a regional hegemonic nuclear power).
While in the State Department, failed to take the opportunity to negotiate a decent status of forces agreement with Iraq, leaving a vacuum that ISIS and Iran have filled.
While in the State Department, presided over the escalation of war in Afghanistan, resulting in a dirty little secrets (because the newspapers won’t report it) which is the fact that more troops have died in Afghanistan under Obama than did under Bush.
Laughed gleefully about getting a child rapist to walk. (And please understand that, as a lawyer, I know that once assigned to the case she had an obligation to give the rapist the best representation possible. That’s not the quibble. It’s her joy later that’s unseemly.)
Maligned Jennifer Flowers as a liar when the latter claimed an affair with Bill Clinton, knowing that Bill was the liar when he denied the affair.
Maligned Monica Lewinsky as a liar when it came out that Lewinsky had an affair with Bill Clinton and that Bill was the liar when he denied the affair. As an aside, feminists forgave Bill his Lewinsky sins, because abortion: “I’d be happy to give him a blow job just to thank him for keeping abortion legal,” said Nina Burleigh, a former Time correspondent and White House reporter.
Maligned Paula Jones as trailer trash when the latter claimed that Bill Clinton sexually molested her, knowing that Bill was the liar when he denied doing so.
Maligned Kathleen Willey as a liar when the latter claimed that Bill Clinton sexually molested her, knowing that Bill was the liar when he denied doing so.
Threatened Juanita Broaddrick, and completely supported Bill Clinton, when Broaddrick credibly claimed that Bill Clinton raped her.
Is married to a man who, when speaking of women and Hillary, said that “Hillary had eaten more pussy than he had.” (Just a reminder of Hillary’s proximity to locker room talk.)
During her presidential campaign, told “all survivors of sexual assault” not to “let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed and we’re with you.”
Called Paul Fray a “fucking Jew bastard.”
Told a Secret Service agent to “fuck off” in response to his saying “good morning.”
May have a close relationship with Death. Bill and Hillary know a lot of people, of course, but even for people with a big Rolodex, an extraordinary number of their former associates have had unnatural deaths.
Various specific disqualifications may come in handy in particular kinds of arguments, but, whew, when considered in their sum, it's clear this is one nasty human being.

So thanks, Bookworm, for providing this great reference resource. Where you lost me was in going from there (well, after acknowledging that Squirrel-Hair is vulgar) to the old look-pal-the-choice-is-binary position. What a person has to do in regards to fealty to his or her standards to make enough of an excuse for S-H son as to feel you have a shot at persuading anyone is not pleasant to observe.

But that matter of standards deserves its own post, which shall follow herewith.
