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.

State cops took his reports seriously, they say. But in the end, they found nothing actionable.
