  • WHY THEY HATE: Republicans leap to bash Clinton because her stature already commands items like this shirt.
Thanks for a headsup on a Washington Post item about the Twittersphere blasting of all the Republicans who accused Hillary Clinton, now receiving treatment for a concussion-related blood clot, of faking illness to avoid Congressional testimony on the Libya consulate attack.

Media Matters rounded up some of the Faux News jackassery on the topic. Ditto this:

Wonder if those sarcastically doubting Sec. Clinton's health will have the decency to apologize....I'm not exactly holding my breath.

Secretary of State Clinton has earned a rest and that may be all she has in mind for her political future. But the busy trade in items like the T-shirt you see here, available on the web, gives you some understanding of why the Republican noise machine is in such fear and loathing about her.
