11. oh pullleeeaaaasssseeee! Just about everyone knows it was a MAJOR goof on Hillary's part....
Even ABC, a network that has been gentle on Hillary, led the Friday evening news with Hillary's gaffe. They tried to make it sound like just a terrible mistake instead of a hopelessly terrible mistake, but even they knew that Hillary goofed!

Of course, for a LONG TIME, we have come to know that members of the Hillary Herd believe their leader cannot do any wrong, cannot make a mistake, worship the ground she walks on....

Hillary goofed. She was trying to explain why she isn't dropping this context she points out Bill Clinton wrapping it up in June and RFK getting shot in June?

At very best, this was a serious lapse of judgement on Hillary's part. A blind spot in her consciousness that would show she often doesn't have a clue what she is saying. Or, when she gets tired, which she seems to get tired a hell of a lot, she uses getting tired as an excuse for making lapses of judgement. Who is really ready at 3AM? I'd say NOT someone who screws up when she is tired!!!!

We all can see the worse interpretations of her remarks. This is NOT the first time she has brought up RFK's assassination.

I would like to know what is going on in her head? Even if Obama got assassinated (something just as likely to happen to Hillary or McCain, by the way...not just black folks).....Hillary would be no less likely to regain stature as a potential nominee if she had dropped out already. At this sad point, she could always re-start her campaign. There is nothing in the rules that says that if the front runner or nominee is assassinated, his successor has to be currently running....
So her bringing up RFK was ridiculous and irrelevant from the get go.

I'm sorry. But just how many idiotic things must Hillary say that the Reps would use against her before the Hillary Herd realizes she is running around in a circle?
