And then they made a corkscrew landing. In the White House. After spontaneous cheers from all in the land. Or something.

When a student asked Clinton to reflect on bin Laden’s death and the process leading up to the Navy Seal mission that killed him last May, she began by talking about her time as a senator from New York during 9/11, and how many of her constituents were affected by the terror attack. She said even all those years ago, she didn’t believe there wasn’t “anybody in Pakistan who doesn’t know where Bin Laden is.”
As she gave a play-by-play account of the day Bin Laden was killed, she recalled how none of the officials in the room watching the operation, including President Obama, “could breathe for 30-35 minutes.”

    After seeing that, I couldn’t breath for 35 minutes either!

    “And none of us had slept for the past, like 36 hours, planning the attack and all, and then when we were called to the WH, we had to dodge a rain of bullets, and we ran like the dickens, and had to keep our heads down. So then we get to the Situation Room, and there wasn’t any Diet Coke, as I recall, and no one breathed for like 35 minutes, because there’s no window in the Situation Room, and boy, was it stuffy. So then……”

    Shakespeare’s character Marcellus in Hamlet definitely comes to mind at times like this.

    Horatio: He waxes desperate with imagination.

    Marcellus: Let’s follow. ‘Tis not fit thus to obey him.

    Horatio: Have after. To what issue will this come?

    Marcellus: Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

    Horatio: Heaven will direct it.

    Marcellus: Nay, let’s follow him. [Exeunt.]

    Hamlet Act 1, scene 4, 87–91

    There’s a reason he says “state of Denmark” rather than just Denmark: the fish is rotting from the head down—all is not well at the top of the political hierarchy.

    Yeah, and I suppose she also didn’t “feel no ways tired”. This is the same woman who claimed she narrowly escaped sniper fire in Bosnia, was rejected by the Marine Corps, was named after Edmund something-or-other, and babysat children of phantom migrant workers. And here I thought my Hillary Nutcracker would be valuable someday.

    That picture of Hilary is hilary-arious. I have to keep going back to look at it.

    I remember a few years back when a regular poster to this blog said that the country’s only hope was for Hillary to challenge Urkel for the Democratic nomination in 2012. Thank goodness that nonsense is no more. The sooner this woman retires from public life, the better. She’s a national nightmare. As bad as Urkel has been I’d still rather have him in the White House than this awful wretch.

    Hmmm, just 35mins, they should have held their breath for 60mins.
    The Everly Brothers – All I Have to Do Is Dream, comes to mind.

    Oh, so THAT’S why they’re all brain-dead!

    Hillary’s account is sheer story-telling, like what followed that old question, “What’d you do in the war grandpa?” Something to thrill and entertain the youngun’s before bedtime. My favorite version of the faux photo:

    Bill never inhaled, guess in the White House now they never exhale.

    What a character, that Hillary!
