Humphries: Liberal bully of week: Hillary’s palace-guard media
The Washington Times ^ | May 16, 2014 | Rusty Humphries

Remember when John McCain ran for president in 2008, and the liberal media were deeply concerned about his age and health? Hardcore left-wing pundits and bloggers weren’t subtle about it — they made fun of him for his age, and the health problems he developed while he was a Vietnam prisoner-of-war. They said he was an out-of-touch old man who couldn’t even handle a computer keyboard.

A group of 2,000 doctors ran a full-page ad in The New York Times demanding that McCain release every last scrap of his medical documentation to the general public. Liberal website Salon.com said even that wasn’t good enough — it wanted to see his psychiatric records, too.

Remember how McCain’s running mate, Sarah Palin, was treated? Liberals said she couldn’t possibly handle the demands of the vice presidency because she had so many children. Pure misogyny came boiling out of every left-wing throat. A deranged blogger named Andrew Sullivan ran column after column questioning whether Palin was actually the mother of her youngest son, or maybe she was just pretending to be the mother of one of her daughter’s illegitimate children. Liberals mocked Palin as a ditzy broad. Comedienne Tina Fey made up a line about Palin claiming she could see Russia from her house that many left-wingers to this day think is a real quote from the candidate.

But now you’re supposed to forget about all that because political consultant Karl Rove had the nerve, the unmitigated gall, to ask questions about Hillary Clinton’s health. Hillary avoided testimony on Benghazi by saying she had passed out and developed a blood clot in her head after a fall....

The vast left-wing conspiracy certainly is finely attuned to any health problems of a conservative, or ANY Republican, when it comes to disseminating the information. But they have a strange obscurity to their vision when it comes to promoting one of their own.

We really have never found out the actual state of health that Bill Clinton was subject to while occupying the Oval Office from 1993-2001. Nor have we ever had any clear and unequivocal evidence that the Current Occupant has been drug-free while in office (this would explain a lot if he WERE administered regular testing).

Infirmities in Democrat office holders are routinely either covered up, or cleverly concealed when making public appearances, but not always. Sometimes, the mental lapses or moral depravities peek around the edges, like in the instance of Joe Biden, “Oh that’s just Joe being Joe”, as if that were an excuse for anything. Or Harry Reid, clearly suffering from a broad and deep mental break, with his obsession with the Koch Brothers, and his strange schizophrenia about others of great wealth somehow not being similarly tainted.

And now especially the example of Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless, who was damaged much more than any Democrat will acknowledge, with the head trauma resulting from the fall just before appearing before an inquiry panel in December 2013. How convenient, of course, but worse, WHY was Herself so unsteady as to fall? Herself has a serious drinking and alcohol tolerance problem, which have generated a whole scope of physical problems. John McCain was held to an extreme level of scrutiny in relation to his physical problems, and perhaps this nation (once known as “the United States of America”) dodged a bullet of a different kind by his defeat in 2008.

Inquiring minds want to know.

Unfortunately, you can’t embarrass the left. They shed any criticism as though it is coming from beneath them and there is no cause to react. Don’t expect them to be any different on this issue.

True. But you can utterly destroy them with the facts and the truth. Just keep shoving it right into their faces like cake frosting and then make them lick it off each other.

“Unfortunately, you can’t embarrass the left.”

Yes you can. It was Alinsky’s biggest fear. That’s why PC is ramping up. It is the buffer for calling out the lefts follies and total disregard for people.

Start a campaign against someone on the left and they back down like being hit on the snout with a newspaper. Look at Sun Trust this week.

By the way, same strategy works on radical Muslims.

Yeah, how’s that working?

Could you cite some examples? I can for my position.

True. But we can ridicule them, mock them. That works.

The problem with liberals and their concussions is that you have no reliable baseline from which to assess brain damage.

“That works.” Please tell us how that works. Did they quit overspending? Did they quit issuing executive orders? Did they stop race baiting? Did they overturn Obamacare? Did they suddenly start cooperating with the Behgazhi investigation. Quick, what is working and how is it working.

I would think Hilliary’s health problems coupled with her Benghazi failure, and the recent affirmation that huge sums of money given to the Clinton Foundation from the Sultan of Brunei also connected to terrorists and is the usual Asian in obeying Sharia Law which is horrendous to women...Ms. Clinton is know for her women’s rights stance....Hillary is not known for her character. Her health should be questioned and her husband shows signs of Parkinson’s...

Still, we must admit that the left is shrewd and has the uninformed American people in the palm of its hand.

The only thing that “works” is the gullibility of the American people. That we can always bank on.

Ridicule is good. The left hates the idea that they might not be considered chic and de rigueur by the proletariat.

I don't think it'll change anything they believe but it sure will p*ss em off.

And that would work wonders on my blood pressure.

Probably right. But it throws off their game, and I do mean game.

Infirmities in Democrat office holders are routinely either covered up, or cleverly concealed when making public appearances, but not always.

I was just looking the other day at some famous photos of the WW II meeting in 1941 in Argentia, Newfoundland, between Franklin Roosevelt, who arrived on the cruiser USS Astoria, and Winston Churchill, who came to the meeting aboard the fast battleship HMS Prince of Wales.

Roosevelt was propped up discreetly, in all the photos, either by a handy bulkhead or handrail, or by a mid-ranking Navy officer standing next to Roosevelt. He never referred to his infirmity, nor would he permit others to do so, until the very end of his life. (My grandfather once accompanied some other Indianapolis pols to see Roosevelt in DC one day .... some cub reporter who didn't know the score snapped a quick shot of FDR in his wheelchair. Roosevelt went white-eyed and gestured furiously to his Secret Service detail, who promptly took the camera away from the reporter and smashed it on the pavement. My grandfather never voted for Roosevelt again .... asked why, he would only say, "Look for a crippled mind in a crippled body." That was his 1930's sidewalk assessment of the man.)

... Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless, who was damaged much more than any Democrat will acknowledge ...

.... by the LUGS of Wellesley, 40 years ago. Ever read her journal entries about her moral wrestling with herself back then, when the LUGS were leaning on her.

I knew a girl who graduated my high-school class with super-high grades and a bookish but sweet personality, and sailed away with high hopes to Bryn Mawr and Chi Omega, where she'd be Mom's legacy. A year and a half later, I was surprised to see her at my cow-college back down home, still a Chi O but very, very quiet and obviously disillusioned about Bryn Mawr. Any guesses what happened?
