It apparently didn't knock any sense into her.

She'd have just answered "I don't recall" anyway.

Didn’t Rush have a song on his show about her prior Congressional testimony. “I can’t remember my brains in a blender, it’s Jell-o, Jell-o.” How would it be much different?

Does anyone think for a moment this wouldn’t be a huge story if she had actually fallen and experienced a concussion?

The brightest woman in the world takes a big fall, has a concussion, and the first we hear about it, she’s already home in bed and unable to leave the house this week.

This is one of the Left’s biggest VIPs. We wouldn’t know about this before she even hit the hospital?

How dumb do they think we are, Leftist reporter stupid?

Dream on...

It’s too bad. This time when she parroted, “I can’t recall” it probably would have been the truth.

She'll get over her concussion. When she does, just clap her into irons, frog-march her into the chamber, and let her face the music.

OK...it'll never happen. But we can dream, right?

An oldie, but a goody. Some things just never change.


QUESTIONER:
Uh, welcome to the Grand Jury, Mrs. Clinton. How are you?


MRS. CLINTON:
I'm sorry. I don't recall.


QUESTIONER:
How's the book tour?


MRS. CLINTON:
I'm sorry, I don't recall.


QUESTIONER:
Uh, well let's get started.
[singing]
Try to remember when you were a member
Of Rose Lawfirm and worked Whitewater.


MRS. CLINTON:
[singing]
I don't remember that big money launder.
I was, um, baking cookies for my daughter.


QUESTIONER:
But Mrs. Clinton,
[singing]
Don't you remember that illegal tender
And your shady friend that McDougal fellow?


MRS. CLINTON:
I'm sorry,
[singing]
I can't remember; my brain's in a blender.
It's Jell-o!


QUESTIONER:
Ha ha, that's pretty good.


MRS. CLINTON:
Could we get on with this, please? I, I have to get back to my book tour.


QUESTIONER:
Okay, Mrs. Clinton, try to remember--and don't blame your gender--
[singing]
For missing all this high corruption.


MRS. CLINTON:
Well, excuse me,
[singing]
I don't remember--and don't blame my gender.
I'm not just some bimbo erruption.


QUESTIONER:
Uh uh, well, no, I didn't mean to imply that, but, but,


[singing]
Come next November your Bill the big spender
Could come to his end for this peccadillo.


MRS. CLINTON:
Well, I don't think so, because
[singing]
I can't remember; my brain's in a blender.
It's Jell-o! ["Jell-o" echoing four times]


QUESTIONER:
Uh, are you getting tired? Would you like to recess?


MRS. CLINTON:
I'm sorry, I don't recall.


QUESTIONER:
[quickly]
Who's president of the United States?


MRS. CLINTON:
Uh, I'm not sure I can remember that.


QUESTIONER:
This is very troubling.


MRS. CLINTON:
Well, pardon me.


QUESTIONER:
Oh, your husband could do that.

Her supporters will just ignore this, as they ignored the Bosnian sniper and assassinationgate, and continue to support her possible bid for the White House.

She is keeping to what worked before - so ‘if it’s not broke don’t fix it’ is in play.

As was the media with this election - we easily fooled them before, let’s do it again.

As did the GOP!

Originally , she couldn’t appear before the Congrssional committee due to her being in Australia for a ‘wine (Whine ?)tasting event.

Now there is the allegation that she slipped, fell and now has a concussion .
Maybe she will next claim amnesia ?
Isn’t that convienient ?

The libtards want us to ‘fuuget bout it’ , and claiming that this is a political witch hunt.
It only took more than 11 days for UN ambassodore Rice to keep replaying “the movie” caused the Benghazi incident.
It took 27 days for the Dept. of “Just-Us “ to get their investigators in there , and they stayed all of 7 hours.
Now we have another delay in finding out what aledgedly happened in Benghazi frojm the State Dept. perspective.

It’s only been three months !!
I’ll bet she is going to be ‘ coached ‘ so that there is some ring of corroboration of what has already been presented to Congress.
This already has a bit of the “Whitewater investigation “ time delay ... inot obscurity .

I guess Obama decided “I don’t recall” and “I fail to recollect” wouldn’t fly or Hillary just wants to get out of Obama’s mess unscathed so she can have hope for a legacy of her own or maybe 2016.
