We are now all experts on dural blood clots.

I have seen more 3-D cutaways of the outgoing Secretary of State's grape in the last 48 hours than I have goofy cartoons of a baby wearing a sash reading "2013".

The ghoulish obsession with the internal bits of ailing politicians, especially during the hours when normal people are trying to eat breakfast or dinner, is annoying and gross. At least this wasn't another encounter with presidential polyps. (Although, come to think of it, I'm not sure which is the more unappetizing place to find oneself: Up Reagan's ass or inside Hillary's head?)

Don't give a rats ass about her clots, "I" want to see her testimony about Benghazi... And why no one has been brought up on criminal charges...

Tam said...

She can't remember. She tripped over Nixon's tape recorder and hit her head on Vince Foster's tombstone. Or something.

Robert Fowler said...

And wasn't that just convenient for her.

"I'd vote for Ronnie's polypy ass before Hil..." Oh, wait...too late for that.

Chris said...

Sad thing is that so few people remember Vince Foster when I repeat that (great) one-liner. Much less the (ahem) irregularities turned up by the "investigation" bungled by the Park Police.

The only thing up Reagan's ass was poo.

What goes on in Hillary's head is much more horrifying.

Ritchie said...

Gotta watch out for those clots, they can kill you unexpectedly. And she was doing so well.

Me, I'm just fine with the First basilisk having a couple subdural hematoma. Just sign that the devil is calling his own back to him.

Art said...

Is there a difference 'tween Reagan's colon and Hillary's grape?

What I want to know is "Wheres Bill?"
How can Slick Willie pass up these "Hillary Hematoma Press Conference Opportunities?"

It's almost like a purge, no?
What if Hillary said ... "I'll testify on Benghazi, 'cept I'm telling the truth, Barack!"
We'll never see her again.

Their girlfriends aren't speaking to each other.

Question that will never be asked in 2016: "Is your health an issue in this campaign Mrs. Clinton?"

perlhaqr said...

Stretch: Of course not. She isn't stuck with Obamacare like the rest of the proles.

(Yes, I am being hyperbolic. It's just a grumpy sort of day, I think.)

That's the problem when a guy marries a bi woman, hoping for a ménage à trois ... He suddenly discovers he is very replaceable ...

I remember from my days in the medical game that subdural hematomas had a very high association with alcoholism. You don't suppose that Hillary might be prone to the drink, now do you? Sometimes folks who drink too much can't remember much either. Just sayin'...

Ouch....
Has anyone called DCFD? A burn like that can smolder for days and set up a back draft. I'd hate for another intern to be hurt by a Clinton's explosion.

Pure Weapons-Grade Snark.

Hey y'all! Tam's back!

I'm so old I remember seeing Lyndon, famous for talking about his Johnson, baring his tummy and showing the incision from his gall-bladder surgery.

Knowing what I know now, I wish somebody had handed him a wakizashi while encouraging him to make another and bigger incision.

If we were to have looked in Reagans ass, we'd have only found polyps and (as mikee said) poo.

Searching for Hilary's head would require us to push past the polyps and poo in her ass

And they are also prone to falling down and hitting their heads, also, without involvement of a stomach virus and dehydration or whatever. Better check those vitamin levels while you're at it, not that you will find a high Vitamin K.

Chalkie said...

Didn't she have the "stomach flu" a few years ago too? Either she's got terrible difficulties washing her hands, or something is up. Pancreatitis is exactly the sort of thing you'd claim was stomach flu, it also leads to dehydration, and while there are a number of different causes, alcohol abuse would be the most common one.

I bet that is the last time Hillary suggests, "Hey, can the White House screen room run Kevin Kline in "Dave", again? That Sigourney is adorable, in the first half of the movie.

Oh, c'mon, Tam, don't be so mean!
I have known some quite pleasant easy-going Lesbians.

The problem with those two, though they are both Dos Equis, is that they are dicks, as we say colloquially.
