Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's tour of Malawi had an inauspicious finale on Monday as she and her detail were targeted by a swarm of bees at the airport.

Clinton and her detail were headed to board her plane at Kamuzu International Airport in the capital, Lilongwe, when a swarm of bees descended on the farewell gathering. According to press reports, Malawi and American officials scampered for cover while Clinton ran onto the jet for cover.

Nothing like dodging that sniper fire in Sarajevo though, right Hillary?

Are we sure it wasn't a swarm of flies?

One can't believe everything seen on the 'net.

This reminds me about a story she once told. Was she running with Chelsea across the tarmac dodging bullets?

The title sounds great, but bee swarms do not attack; they follow their queen until she stops, and then they cover her.

Good grief! I haven’t seen a photo of her in a long time—and I would not have recognized her in this one without being told who she is.

She looks like a short, fat munchkin .............

Purple is not her best color, it seems.

She dodged bullets when she was First Lady now she’s dodging killer bees. What a woman! Of course Bill had to dodge ashtrays.

I bet the reporter has never seen a real swarm. Having one show up and cover half a wall on the back of your house will scare the crap out of a non-beekeeper person like me. The beekeeper fellow estimated I had about 10,000 bees.

“Is she not wearing a bra?”

In this case I don’t want to know or even look.

A hive with 10,000 bees and a queen is worth some money!

Farmers pay well to rent hives.

Well, I saw this thing comin' out of the lim
It had long, lank hair like a lib-er-al Dim
I commenced to shakin'
And I said "ooo-eee"
She looks like a purple people eater to me
A two-eyed, two-horned freepin' purple people eater
She sure looks strange to me
Ooo-eee, ooo-eee, ooo-eee.......

A good bee keeper could have used a stethescope to determine where the queen was, and simply removed and relocated her to a hive, and the bees would have followed.
