The Atlantic Monthly should have an amusing story now that they obtained internal memos from the Clinton campaign. The Trail reports:
Just when you thought everyone had moved on… former advisers to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton are in a tizzy over an upcoming piece in the Atlantic Monthly that chronicles the inner workings of the now-defunct campaign. Of particular concern are nearly 200 internal memos that the author, Josh Green, obtained — 130 or so of which he plans to scan in and post online. When the piece is published sometime next week, readers will be able to scroll through the memos, from senior strategists such as Mark Penn, Harold Ickes and Geoff Garin, and see what exactly was going on inside the infamously fractured Clinton organization. That has some former team members in a panic.
Actually we knew that it is not the case that everyone had moved on–which might make these emails even more amusing. The PUMA groups continue to repeat all the nonsense put out by the Clinton campaign which anyone with half a functioning brain would have seen through. I doubt that the memos outright admit that most of their claims during the campaign were absurdities raised in the hopes of political gain, but possibly the memos might give some clue. Unfortunately those kooks in the PUMA groups who continue to repeat the Clinton talking points are probably incapable of analyzing these memos rationally.
