We’re told that Hillary Clinton is the smartest, most qualified and most capable person to ever run for President. Ever.

Let’s face it, we’re lucky that she’s even lowering herself to the demeaning process of having to earn votes in the presidential election. We should just give her the job by unanimous acclimation.
So what to make of this revelation, via Daily Caller?
As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton never used a password to protect her computer emails, and she was clueless about how regular emails work on a conventional computer, according to a deposition of a foreign service officer at the State Department.
Fox News has the details on the sworn testimony of a State Department staffer charged with assisting Clinton with gaining access to her personal email address:
In a two-hour deposition with the conservative legal watchdog group Judicial Watch last week, Lewis Lukens also said he offered to set up a “stand-alone” computer for Clinton to check her personal email account, only to be told that she “does not know how to use a computer to do email.”
Albert Einstein in a pants-suit doesn’t know how to use a personal computer to “do email.”
The question from Judicial Watch attorneys that brought about the revelation of Hillary’s PC IQ issues was a pretty important one:
“The crux of the issue was that BlackBerrys and iPhones are not allowed in the secretary’s office suite, so the question was: How is the secretary going to be able to check her e-mails if she’s not able to have the BlackBerry at her desk with her?”
That’s why Lukens offered to set up the stand-alone PC for Clinton to use. But she didn’t have time to brush up on the basics from Email for Dummies so that idea was rejected.
How did the leader of America’s State Department exchange 50,000 emails if she didn’t know how to use a computer? According to the testimony, she circumvented the security protocols: (Bloomberg)
Hillary Clinton was so attached to her BlackBerry as secretary of state that she was sometimes spotted in the hallway outside her highly secure office using the device, according to a State Department official.
Also revealed in the Lukens sworn deposition to Tom Fitton‘s watchdog group was the appearance of subterfuge in the administration of Clinton’s unorthodox email scheme:
Q What was your understanding of why former Secretary Clinton wanted to check her e-mail?
A: My understanding was for her to stay in touch with family and friends.
And later in the testimony:
Q: And so the standalone computer that you were proposing to allow her to check e-mail, was that for her to stay in touch with family and friends or for work purposes?
A: My understanding was family and friends.
Q: Did you have any reason to believe that the standalone computer would be used for any other purpose?
Summary: Clinton circumvented the secure offices at the State Department so she could check her private, unsecured emails on a non-secure, over-the-counter Blackberry. A staffer at Foggy Bottom was asked to install a stand-alone PC so his boss could access personal email with family and friends (or so he was told.) It turns out the email account was actually used for all of the Secretary’s business, including classified communications. But, that plan didn’t work because Hillary Rodham Clinton doesn’t know how to use a computer.
