Chapter umpteen: Being a Republican means never having to say you're sorry

WHY THEY HATE: Republicans leap to bash Clinton because her stature already commands items like this shirt.
  • 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:

Jeff Greenfield @greenfield64
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.

  • Not giving up on Fred

    We ended up adopting Fred due to his incorrigible stubbornness. Originally bred to track game, basset hounds can be amazingly persistent. It sometimes appears that when their noses are working, their hearing shuts down.
  • Private clubs win early closing battle

    Private clubs apparently have won their battle against earlier closing hours, based on a "compromise" revealed at the City Board meeting last night.
  • Prosecutors have all the power

    But little oversight. Is a violation not a violation if a prosecutor says, 'I didn't mean to'?
  • The Kochs, Tom Cotton and their dislike of helping farmers

    The Koch political lobby is trying mightily to pretend it supports American farmers and that Tom Cotton's vote against the farm bill isn't a measure of farm support. A new report from a Democratic organization blows that dishonest messaging out of the water.
  • Lawsuit says Crittenden Regional Hospital charged employees for health insurance premiums but never paid claims

    A lawsuit filed on Friday in the Circuit Court of Crittenden County alleges that at least beginning in 2014, Crittenden Regional Hospital (CRH) withheld money from employees' paychecks for health insurance premiums, but never actually paid the claims. That would potentially leave their employees on the hook for tens of thousands of dollars in medical care they were told was covered by their health insurance. The practice may have dated back even further, said Denny Sumpter, the attorney for the plaintiffs.
