DAVID FRUM: But notice that list of bombshells. Those are not equivalent bombshells. The news of Hillary Clinton's speeches to Goldman Sachs, I would certainly feel bitter if I had paid $350,000 and that's what I got. And likewise, these Comey revelations, these are not big reveals. Meanwhile, the discovery that a nominee for president bragged about how he liked to grab women or the revelation that he hopes to profit from a hostile foreign power's manipulation of a U.S. Election? You know, one are little firecrackers that you set off at a tent ceremony. The other, these are real blockbusters that bring down city blocks.
