US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had successful two-hour surgery today to repair her broken right elbow, her chief of staff said.
Mrs Clinton tripped and fell in the State Department's basement on Wednesday ...
Mrs Clinton has several foreign trips planned in the coming weeks ...
(Excerpt) Read more at theaustralian.news.com.au ...
1st surgery she has had since her lobotomy.
I hope Madame Sec’y gets well soon...so we can get back to busting her chops.
Her descension into obscurity continues undeterred. Another victim of Obamanism.
More like “Shovel Elbow” from all those Arkancide burials..
That ten year old wild turkey has a kick.
The term is UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE. That means it covers the universe, i.e., the ENTIRE POPULATION. EVERYONE is covered by the SAME RULES and NOBODY is LEFT OUT!
If that IS what the Democrat political elites REALLY WANT, heres the deal:
No members of Congress or ANYONE in the White House running off to Walter Reed or Bethesda for that nasty ingrown toenail, hacking cough and spitting up blood. Take a number and wait in the same line the rest of us are.
That goes for your congressional and White House children and other family members! GET IN LINE!!!
And if your UNIVERSAL RULES dictate that some life-saving treatment would be too expensive or not be cost-effective for you older members, heres a twenty call someone who cares.
Oh yeah forgot the best part: If ANY of you are found to be availing yourselves of what idiot representative Fortney Pete Stark (as in raving mad) from (where else) KAHLIFONIA once called Boutique Medicine (cute, huh?) by bypassing the universal system, not getting that needed treatment will be the least of your problems.
Why was she in the basement of the State Dept? Burning more Rose Law records?
Bubba got tired of hildebeast haranguing him about his women while she has hers.
Average Canadian government wait time for orthopedic surgery, 40 weeks.
Americans should be wary when politicians such as Hillary Clinton and Ted Kennedy try to glorify the Canadian healthcare system.
Clinton’s broken elbow? Paula and Juanita said the funny bone was bent to the left...oh, wait a minute, Mrs. Clinton. Never mind.
What type of insurance paid for it?
That said, this blurb in the NY Post sports section amused me:
Hillary Clinton broke her arm in a fall in the State Department garage. The aging Pantsuit has to realize she can't move with that cat-like quickness she showed back in the '90s when she was dodging sniper fire on a tarmac in Bosnia.
Just pull it and her thumbs out of her fat ass and set it.
That’ll teach her not to arm wrestle with Michelle “hard arms” Obama.
Now she’s really being punished. Bubba is at her side.
Obviously thelobotomy was unsuccessful and hoping she/IT finds more success with the Elbow Surgery. Hilda was in the “State Department Basement” at the time! What was Hildabeast doing with HUMA in the “State Department Basement?” This sounds rather salatious?
"Help a brotha out, make the mop water extra soapy."
I wish her physical healing.
I also wish she would get out of politics and take Obummer with her.
She’ll be running against Palin 3 1/2 years from now.
Well! The Broken Elbow did get her/IT 15 minutes of face time on the News Networks! Thats 15 minutes more than Hildabeast has been given up until now since ZERO HUSSEIN OBOZO condemned Hilda to the KENYAN Equivalent of Siberia!
What was Lady MacBeth doing in the Senate basement? Running away from Vince Foster’s ghost?
She can finally tell the difference, then. Or “does this pants-suit make my elbow look big?”
She better start taking her calcium supplements. She is an old lady, after all.
No, that’s where the snack machines are.
This comment belongs on the Cronkite thread.
Being Hillary, she probably solicited gifts from “loyal” admirers.
Why was she in the basement????????????????
Gotta tell ya. Yesterday I was experiencing some symptoms that made me pause. I decided I had better give my Dr. a call a have them checked out. I called at 9:30 AM and was in his office at 10:15. This morning I had and ultrasound and have already gotten my results. Everything is fine but none of this would happen under the plan our Congresscritters have in store for us.
Returned to her home in Washington?
I thought she lived in New York state.
That x-ray series came from the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research website at http://www.josr-online.com/content/figures/1749-799X-3-9-6-l.jpg, but I didn’t see any indication it was Hillary’s elbow - just an example of the type of surgery she is presumed to have had.
Yes indeed, she would have got much more attention by staying in the Senate. I bet she is very bored at State. Her supporters have forgotten about her.
On the other hand, If the X-rays (or any medical records) were those of a high ranking Republican and they might be embarrassing in some way or another, then the MSM thinking might be a bit different.
So, yes, what's pictured is just an X-ray of some anonymous patient who underwent a similar procedure.
Correct. I was merely trying to demonstrate what her fracture may have looked like and how it would have been repaired. If I actually had the real xrays, that probably would have merited its own thread and most likely a visit from Federal Agents.
