42. You did a fantastic job in trying to wake her up.
I have one suggestion, if you find yourself in continued email contact with this person. I hope you will underline the fact that she called Clinton (jokingly, but still ...) a MURDERER. Not a liar or an adulterer, which could be defended as true, though irrelevant and inappropriate, but a MURDERER. She should be called on that. It is beyond the pale.

And I think she is being disingenuous when she calls Clinton a "celebrity." He is a former president -- and one who retained real popularity among the people, unlike Bush -- even DURING the impeachment farce. If it's about Clinton, it's about politics, not entertainment, and she risks regularly offending anyone who voted for him or supported him during and after the impeachment.

Your emails are great, very clear and forceful.
