KATHLEEN PARKER: The Character Assassination Of Hillary Clinton
The new year began not with a cannonball off the “fiscal cliff” but with an outbreak of conspiratorial cynicism.
This time it’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose fall and concussion, followed by a blood clot between her brain and skull, has prompted an embarrassment of theories. The gist: That woman will do anything to avoid testifying about Benghazi.
Several commentators on the right opined via Twitter and TV, those most deadly hosts for the parasites of rumor and innuendo, that Clinton was faking her concussion to duck out on her appearance before congressional committees investigating the attack on the U.S.
diplomatic compound in Libya that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
An independent report published last month placed substantial responsibility for the deaths on the State Department. Not only was security at the Benghazi compound weak, relying heavily on local forces with conflicting loyalties, but requests for additional security apparently were ignored or denied.
The sentiment that Clinton might not wish to testify on the matter is not without reason. It is hard to imagine the agony of knowing that one’s lack of vigilance may have contributed to four deaths. But the attacks on Clinton during her illness, essentially attacks on her character, have been cruel and unfair. What must the world think of us?

2. Yup. This time she was just forced into clutching a different set of pearls.
Fuck her, and her sanctimonious, false equivalence, bullshit.
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches toward Bethlehem to be born?

9. Every now and then
she accidentally says something sane. Don't worry, she'll go right back to hackery after this lapse.

4. Where was Parker when Sandra Fluke's character was being assassinated?
Parker, like the other con women who were silent about Fluke but are now speaking out about Hillary are shameless opportunists.
The only reason they come to Hillary's defense is because of her position.

8. It's been going on since 1992
and has never really stopped. FWIW, Kathleen Parker can kiss my ...I couldn't care less what she's blabbering about.
