Hillary Needs Help – Now

This is beyond politicking. This is more like decompensation. She needs help, Right now. At first I was skeptical of this quote because it came from the NY Post. Rupert Murdoch’s rag is not where I go to become informed.

“My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don’t understand it,” she said, dismissing calls to drop out.

But, in fact, her campaign has offered a “clarification” which is really more of a reiteration:

“She was simply referencing her husband in 1992 and Bobby Kennedy in 1968 as historic examples of the nominating process going well into the summer. Any reading into beyond that would be inaccurate.”

Right. That’s what we thought she was saying and it’s beyond the pale. And she doesn’t understand why. I’m serious about her mental health. The Bosnian sniper story was alarming, not merely because it was untruthful. It was alarming because it was a batshit crazy thing to say. There were other people there. There was video tape. How do you say something like that and not expect it to be revealed as a lie? There’s no way if you’re operating on all cylinders.

She will not drop out of the race because, as both statements illustrate, she’s become detached from reality. I know the DNC has its own agenda for bringing this to an end in the most diplomatic way possible. That ship, however, has sailed. Something’s got to be done sooner, rather than later. And if Bill is there enabling this it’s beginning to rise to the level of abuse.

    Do you think she’s just unhinged or doesn’t care if she plants seeds in the minds of people unhinged? She’s such a brilliant woman; and it’s hard for me to imagine her losing her grip. I think she ought to withdraw immediately though. I mean if this is where her mind goes in a moment of weakness, she’s not fit to president.

  2. I don’t know, I really don’t, but I really think there’s something wrong. She’s too smart to say some of things she’s said. She’s too smart to think they’re going to help her, too. At least that’s what I’ve thought up to now. And she looked really terrible when she issued that non-apology. She looked exhausted to the point of illness.
