I certainly don’t care for her politics, but I pray that she won’t have any lingering effects from this incident.

If Michele Bachmann’s headaches are enough to put her out of the running for the presidency, this should be enough to have Hillary institutionalized.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is suffering from a concussion after fainting. Below is a statement from her Philippe Reines, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State.

“While suffering from a stomach virus, Secretary Clinton became dehydrated and fainted, sustaining a concussion. She has been recovering at home and will continue to be monitored regularly by her doctors. At their recommendation, she will continue to work from home next week, staying in regular contact with Department and other officials. She is looking forward to being back in the office soon.”

She must have been listening to a volume of her own speeches or that crazy book of hers.

Anyway, hope she is OK. Don’t like to see people sick, especially with Obama Care almost here.

‘Concussion’? Looks like she’s setting herself up for “I don’t recall” during her testimony on Benghazi. F’ing OBVIOUS ISN’T IT?

I figured she’d pull something so she wouldn’t have to testify.

OMG! I hope she gets well in time to testify under oath about Bengahzi. But of course the primary focus should be on her recovery not the feelings of the families of the 4 dead Americans.

The problem with a fainting like that is it can be a symnptom of something really bad, like a malignant brain tumor. IIRC that’s how the late Bob Novak and the late Lee Atwater learned of their fatal tumors. At her age it’s a really ominous symptom, meaning she ought to get to the nearest full service acute care hospital, the kind whose services Obamacare will ration for the rest of us, and be fully checked out.

No. She would have had a slightly different reaction were that so...

I'm sure this "concussion" will give Hillary complete amnesia about Benghazi. Mark my words...

"Amnesia"

Eight more hours of testimony under oath from Hillary "I don't recall, I can't remember, nope nada, nothing."

If it was caught on camera would the media replay it ad nauseum, the way they played George Bush Sr vomiting and passing out at that state dinner?

I just heard a CNN reporter state that what a concussion means is the way that you interpret the world has been fundamentally altered in some way...we can only hope that Hillary’s world view has been fundamentally altered...Ha,Ha,Ha!

Why is this being treated as news? Hillary’s entire life has been one feint after another. Probably hundreds of feints by now.
