Sometimes, you just have to wonder how people justify things to themselves

Such as, for instance, voting for Hillary Clinton:
Let me ask a question the mainstream media is always happy to ask about Republicans, but never asks about its preferred candidates on the Left: What does it say about you as a person if you besmirch yourself by voting for Grandma Benghazi?
Here’s a woman who lies so often that her name has practically become synonymous with deception. Unlike her husband, who was such an artful liar that people wanted to believe him when he wasn’t telling the truth, Hillary is ham-fisted about it. She tells obvious lies that everyone from the media to her enemies, to her friends know are lies right from the beginning.
How do you vote for a woman so dishonest that she claims her daughter was jogging around the World Trade Center on 911 or said with a straight face that she landed under sniper fire in Bosnia? When she lies about having her own email server and about putting our national security at risk by having huge numbers of classified emails sent to it, how do you respect yourself when she gets caught lying about it over and over again?
Look, I'm not suggesting that Donald Trump is an attractive alternative. Being forced to choose between an  immature slimeball and a felon, though, is not exactly how most folks want to go. Even her supporters in the media are forced to claim that there should be a higher bar to indicting her simply because she is running for president.  I guess that's the only way to claim she shouldn't be indicted when the FBI wants to bring her in for questioning.

Seriously, it is beyond me how anyone this close to a felony indictment could also be this close to a major party's presidential nomination. Please try to imagine what the media would be doing if a potential Republican nominee - any potential Republican nominee -- were also under criminal investigation. Think the media would let them remain a viable candidate? Yeah, me neither.
