One day the right will jump the shark. We’ll, it’s happened already, several times, but it’ll get worse until it gets better. Here’s the latest example, where someone tossed a shoe at Hillarty Clinton, and there has to be a Benghazi cover-up in there somewhere:
Alternet — Hillary Clinton has been accused of many things: faking a blood clot in her brain, killing Vincent Foster, having a marriage of convenience. But arranging to have a shoe thrown at her in order to appear more presidential just has to go down as one of the idiotic claims the right has manufactured to date. We realize that times are getting desperate, what with some right-wing pundits breaking ranks on the nonsensical Benghazi so-called scandal and others saying enough of the endlessly dragged out IRS investigation. And they desperately need something new to obsess about. But shoe-gate? This strikes us as clutching at an awfully short straw.
There is no straw too short to clutch for these clowns to glom onto. But the Hillary hatred may backfire at some point. There are elements in the right that just can’t resist the low hanging fruit of hits and headlines when it comes to ticking off People who May not Vote for Conservatives of Any Kind,, and they’ll not only go there, they’ll overshoot by parsecs in the next two years, probably many, many times.
And while the dog whistles on Obama usually piss off a relatively small number of people, between the the War on Woman (WoW) and loose flapping lips, they may manage to piss off the largest voting bloc in the US.
