We think Karl Rove was stupid to mention anything about Hillary Clinton’s health. Assume for a moment that Hillary Clinton has brain damage or traumatic brain injury or whatever. Wouldn’t that make her the perfect Republican opposition candidate? Wouldn’t it???
Just picture it: doddering ol’ Grandma Hillary decides to run for president – (roll of thunder, lightning crackle) then due to the grueling campaign schedule – keels over and dies. Wouldn’t you want to run against a candidate that won’t live through the campaign? Hells bells, that’s how TV crooner Clay Aiken got the nomination for a House seat just the other day.
If Karl Rove or any Republican/conservative/DailyKook leftist thinks Hillary Clinton is too feeble to function – Jeez Louise shouldn’t they do anything possible to get her to run? It’s Tonya Harding’s dream but without Jeff Gillooly with his incriminating bat!
Why would Tanya Rove Harding bother to try to kneecap an opponent when the likelihood is that Nancy Hillary Kerrigan is going to fall flat on her face? That’s if you believe the allegations have merit. If you know the allegations have no merit then you’re just helping your opponent which is what happened this past week in the Rove v. Hillary show.
It is possible that Tonya Rove thought he could scare Hillary Kerrigan from running in 2016. But really… scare Hillary? Harrdy harrrrdy har har!
If Hillary Clinton does decide to run in 2016 she will have to release her medical records but more importantly she would have to campaign and that campaign would be the ultimate testimony as to health of the candidate (see Reagan, Ronald). In the meantime this past week Hillary Clinton got lots of defense/offense exercise and her Benghazi detractors lost whatever lost credibility they had with their “Benghazi flu” theories.
At the end of the week, Hillary got backup from those dying for the 2016 follies to start and Karl Rove came off as an uglier Matt Damon.
Matt Damon? In 2008 we defended John McCain against Obama supporters (see idiot Matt Damon) who smeared the war veteran as too old, probably unhealthy, and likely to die in office. Hypocrite public school advocate Matt cited actuarial tables for his anti-McCain ugliness and dinosaurs as “reasons” for why Sarah Palin was not qualified to be president once McCain succumbed to Matty’s tarot card analysis. In 2014, John McCain is still alive. Matt Damon’s career is mostly over.
It was a laugh then to listen to the educated Damon ramble so about dinosaurs and actuarial tables. Not for a second did Damon consider that dinosaurs do not have much to do with modern day public policy and that Governor Palin did not suspend evolution as a subject in Alaska schools. Damon also did not bother to notice that McCain’s mom was still alive and kicking in a most healthy and vigorous way and that maybe, just maybe, the guy who survived North Vietnamese tiger cage camps might have inherited mommy’s Kryptonian genes.
[As an aside, it is ironically damning now, that Matt Damon thought Sarah Palin could not face down Vladimir Putin. Yeah, the meathead really said that after his dinosaur reasoning for why Palin was beneath him. Matty did not realize that Sarah Palin fights like a girl which is more than enough to send Putin to the hospital whereas Barack Obama frights like the cowardly boob he is.]
In everything Matt Damon said then about politics there was scant evidence. Damon made a fool of himself but no doubt believed that he was brilliant. We’re hearing much the same these days from those who think Karl Rove was brilliant to insert Hillary Clinton’s health into 2016 considerations. It ain’t so.
Instead of focus on the Veterans Administration hospital scandal, instead of a focus on ObamaCare’s continuing destruction, instead of a focus on everything else going wrong in the country because of Barack Obama, Karl Rove diverted the national discussion to the focus function of Hillary’s eyeglasses. That’s not brilliant. That’s dumb.
