Hillary’s Fake Illness Story Getting Wings, & Thighs

LA Times -

The State Department slammed former United Nations envoy John Bolton over his suggestion that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton falsely claimed a concussion to avoid a potentially embarrassing appearance before Congress to explain the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

In an appearance on Fox News, Bolton said that Clinton’s claim that she had fainted because of the flu, hitting her head and suffering a concussion, was what foreign service officers call a “diplomatic illness,” intended to free a diplomat from an unpleasant duty. Clinton was supposed to appear before congressional foreign affairs committees on Thursday to respond to questions about whether security failures opened the way for the Sept. 11 attack.

“This is a diplomatic illness to beat the band,” said Bolton, who served during the George W. Bush administration. “I mean, I hope it’s nothing serious. But this was revealed in a way that I think was not transparent and I think there is an obligation here.”

    If she’s so “sick” where are Bubba and Chelsea?
    Have they rushed to her side?
    Didn’t think so.

    I, on the other hand, hope it’s something VERY serious; like, prosecutable.

    Does it seem odd to anyone that the State Department’s defending her condition instead of her doctor?

    Benghazi’s revenge packs one powerful punch. I hear the only cure is Fast & Furious water.

    @Xavier — But how can her doctor tell the difference in her behavior between pre-concussion Hillary and post-concussion Hillary?

    It’s my belief also that she faked it.

    The shirt is hillaryous!

    The LA Times poll is even funnier:

    “Did she fake it?” 94% – yes 6% – no

    Boy, you really pulled the wool over everyone’s eyes with this one Shitlery.

    The only reason the LA Slimes gave the story prominence here was to attack John Bolton.

    All of the media are predictably harumphing at and ridiculing any suggestion of disingenuous motives or cowardice on thunder thighs’ part.

    @Birdie – that was my take away also. It was reporting more about a “crazy accusation” than a pattern of avoiding direct questions about a potentially political damaging controversial situation.

    Oh, and I just checked back on the article, and those wiley wascals at the LAT have switched the wording on the survey around to:

    “Was she ill?”

    Yes – 8%
    No – 92%

    They must have sharp readers. No wait a minute, they all came from a link on iOTW and Drudge.
