WASHINGTON - Secretary of State Clinton was recuperating at home Thursday, figuring out how to send text messages and emails as she nurses a broken right elbow that will require surgery to mend, her spokesman said.

"She is at home resting comfortably -- or uncomfortably," said State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley. "She is working from home. She has already taken some calls, and I'm sure learning … how well you can text with one arm in a sling."

Why would breaking her elbow have any effect on her ability to use a phone like normal?

Oh no!!! Who’s going to flip the pages of the bills and how will she sign it?

Oh, that’s right nobody reads the bills and signing is over rated...

Want a lie or the truth?

My Lie:
Oh my, I absolutely feel pity and compassion for her.

My Truth:
Oh my, I absolutely feel pity and compassion for her....not.

Forgive the pun, “break a leg” next time.

Another brave soul. Killing flies and trying to text with a broken elbow -- this administration is tougher than I thought.

It was her right arm and using your fingers to press keys on a keyboard requires a great deal from you elbow. The muscles that move your fingers are largely in your forearm and one end of them attaches up near your elbow. With all the soft tissue damage at the point where they tie in it’s very difficult to move your fingers. Damage to the elbow pretty much makes your entire arm useless.

Odd how this injury occurred right in the middle of a pantload of diplomatic crises: Iran, North Korea, resettlement (or whatever) of the Gitmo inmates, Israel/Palestine, huge problems with the Mexican border, etc., etc. And Hillary is home learning how to send email and text messages? Gimme a break! This has got to be a cover story for something else. I'm getting a mental picture of the “shellshocked” malingering PFC that General Patton slapped during the Sicily campaign. Either that or one of Obama's thugs gave her a shiner.
