The Clinton Saga Continues

From "The Onion"
MIAMI—Surreptitiously grabbing the explosive device stashed inside her lectern and pulling its pin as soon as she heard moderator Jorge Ramos mention her support for the Iraq War and the Wall Street bailout, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton reportedly threw a flash grenade onto the stage during Wednesday night’s Democratic debate to divert attention away from a question about her Senate voting record. “That’s an important question, Jorge, and one I’m happy to answer,” said the former secretary of state just as the military-grade M84 stun grenade exploded, emitting a deafening blast and blinding flash of white light that prevented anything on stage from being seen or heard for the duration of Clinton’s answer. After cowering with their hands over their ringing ears for approximately 70 seconds, rattled audience members, the debate’s moderators, and fellow candidate Bernie Sanders were said to have regained their vision and hearing just in time to make out the final sentence of Clinton’s response: “And that’s why I’ve always stood on the side of the middle class and working families.”
Hillary Post-Indictment

I'm trying to source this, but allegedly, Hillary Clinton has told reporters that even if indicted by the Department of Justice, she would continue her run for the presidency. No, I'm not kidding. And perhaps she isn't either. We know that Hillary feels that it's her turn to be leader of the free world, and she will not allow it to be taken from her. 

Washington DC Mayor Marion Berry won re-election even after a video surfaced of him using illegal narcotics and after his arrest for same.  It's possible that Hillary could receive a Presidential Pardon and continue to be the Democratic Party's nominee. Wasn't there a crazy dope smoking felon who was mayor of Toronto, Canada or something along that line? There are precedents, just not at the Presidential level. 

I'm confident that she'll be held to account, will be charged and will face trial, but I'm not all that confident that it will change the election. Things have slipped that far.

  1. If she is indicted, along with her co-conspirator 'the ham sandwich,' her political career is catastrophically derailed. Even though she has significant clout within the Democrat Party, there are those cigar chomping, back room guys who will have no such thing.

    Those democrat fat cat behind-the-scenes guys such as George Soros and his buddies are perfectly OK with the current damaged goods that Hillary represents, but once the criminal charges are filed, it's over. Even those cigar chompers have their principles. Such as they are.

    1. I think that they'd keep Hillary if it played in Peoria. But it won't, and that, as they say, will be that.

  2. And if the boom lowers on the Old Boot, what next, Kerry? I'd be happy to see Swiftboat John up again and losing a general.

    1. The Bernie supporters would feel betrayed -- it's as if the "game is rigged".

  4. Look, I'm not saying that old sows are called "Hillarys" but I'm not saying they aren't, either.

    1. Is it a coincidence that when people call "Sueeeeee!" that Hillary comes?

  5. you have to be convicted before you can be pardoned...and convicted felons, even if pardoned, cannot be president...and obumbles cannot grant immunity.
