Hillary illness doubters face wrath of Twitter

Last edited Sun Dec 30, 2012, 11:44 PM - Edit history (1)

Source: Washington Post

Hillary Clinton’s admission to a New York hospital for a blood clot stemming from her recent concussion has much of the Twitter-sphere engaging in a round of public shaming.

Some conservatives initially accused Clinton of faking her illness in order to avoid a scheduled date with a House committee holding hearings about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

Now that her condition has apparently deteriorated, those conservatives are being called out.

14. Republicans believe that the end justifies the means.

Which proves that American Republicans operate the same way as Soviet Bolsheviks. There is nothing they will not do to destroy the country so they can get into absolute power.

It seems reasonable if not probable to them that Clinton would do something so underhanded and cowardly, because that's what they would do.

Except they didn't even use the excuse of illness. They show up alright, but then have absolutely no memory of whatever they're being questioned about. Amazing, isn't it, that so many very smart people can't remember a damn thing when being questioned by Congress. And there is never a price to pay because IOKIYAR.

These wingnuts have no sense of shame.

All from tonight:
Tammy Bruce ‏@HeyTammyBruce
I've never believed the "fall & concussion" BS. The 1st instinct of these people is to lie. We shall see...

Tammy Bruce ‏@HeyTammyBruce
And after Benghazi, why is no one suggesting this might be about REHAB ? @CarlDeal1 @richardgrenell @instapundit

Tammy Bruce ‏@HeyTammyBruce
We were never dealing w flu, fall, concussion. Don't think it's cancer. Probably addiction issue and/or nervous breakdown.

Tammy Bruce ‏@HeyTammyBruce
So, the flu to dizzy to fall to concussion to blood clot. Next==> cankles.

41. Fox News--where all the High School mean girls wind up.

Including honorary ones like Sean Hannity and Brian Kilmeade. That entire station strikes me as an educational playground for sociopaths. They make fun of people on food stamps, cheer American jobs being sent overseas, egg on racism, paint the elderly as well-to-do and deserving of cuts in benefits and mock people who are injured and hospitalized. And that's on their nicer days. Why anyone would expect anything better from this rhymes-with-witch or any of their contributors or wingnuts in general is beyond me. I'm not charitable enough to ascribe any decency to them at all.

22. yes, a few random commenters might say something like that, but

the key difference is, these are Republican officials, conservatives with ties to GOP leadership and people their party puts out there as their spokespeople.
We're not dealing with the antics of anonymous discussion board folks. These people speak for the GOP, and get paid handsomely to do so.

But, "filth" is a definite understatement. Don't waste your energy hating them. They are definitely not worth the effort it takes. Let 'em stew in their own hatred, and don't let them drag you into their shitstew with them.

They've lost the election and they're losing their precious party. So in their hatred and fear if they can't have their way then they're going to ruin it for everyone else. They are into destroying the country in any case because they've been having a major tantrum since 2008.

42. How many mainstream, influential Dems questioned Bush's "pretzel" incident

or his many falls resulting in cuts and bruises all over his face?





Even though Bush is an alcoholic I don't recall any influential Dems saying what was obvious. And it's a hell of a lot more likely that Bush was drinking than Hillary is faking an illness (which would only delay testimony, not prevent it).

No one questioned his weird "coke jaw"-esque facial tic either.
