Daily Caller Writer Was Just Asking Responsible Questions About Hillary Clinton Faking It

Jim Treacher, who periodically writes incredibly stupid shit at the Daily Caller Media Foundation Trademark, is now demanding the real birth certificate for Hillary Clinton’s concussion or something, and DEMANDS RESPECT FOR HIS CRUSADE. A few weeks ago, when Hillary’s people said she wouldn’t be testifying about Benghazi because she’d fallen down and hit her head, I did exactly what our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters in the media would have done if Secretary Clinton were a Republican: I asked to see the medical report. I didn’t accuse her of faking her injury. I didn’t call it a hoax. I merely showed skepticism about the claims of a career politician who was missing her second opportunity in a row to testify about her department’s utter negligence and ineptitude in Benghazi. Now, of course, lazy hacks are accusing me of doing the very thing I went out of my way not to do. Right…in general, when you’re not accusing someone of lying, you ask them for the private medical records to prove the thing you have no reason to doubt, but don’t believe because they’re probably lying, which is not what you’re saying at all.  At all.  Especially when you quote an article that says Clinton’s concussion “looks like avoidance of responsibility to preserve her own political viability” and then you say “[i]t certainly does.”  That’s not accusing someone of engaging in a self-serving lie, it’s just accusing them of being dishonest to…serve their own purposes. Totes diff. (To be fair, Treacher has a lot of reason to hate the State Department, considering a State Department SUV hit him while he was crossing the street and caused him permanent physical damage.  But maybe you take that guy off the State Department beat, hm?)

Obama Therapy Session With House Republicans Goes… Well? No One Knows

Okay okay okay let’s try to get this all organized… nope, not gonna happen, so here’s the deal: We have no idea where to begin with this Obama/House Republicans group sex therapy rehab session that just took place, on teevee. It was very very strange. So here’s… something? It’s one of the parts where Obama tells Republicans to cut the shit, please. It’s nice that he tries. Maybe. This is some wacky wacky politics, and everyone will be confused about the “winner.” Let’s just declare Ron Paul the winner again and go eat some nachos.

Eliot Spitzer To Suffer Harrowing Withdrawal From Sex Addiction

Everyone knows that fun things are bad for you, and if you do enough fun things repeatedly then you are an “addict.” A man who has fun sex with hookers, for example, is a shamefully diseased sex addict on the verge of sexing himself to death. But generous Fate intervened on behalf of addict Eliot Spitzer, who has reportedly entered therapy to cure himself of this strange compulsion to have enjoyable no-strings-attached sex with young women. How long before the cure “takes”? Read more on Eliot Spitzer To Suffer Harrowing Withdrawal From Sex Addiction…
 

Metro Section: Fat

* Make peace with your trans fats because we’re following NY. [Read Express] * Smash! reopens in Adams Morgan. [panda head] * “Mayor Fenty, if you really want to make a statement, forget banners and marches and appeals to common sense. Instead, like any good politician, go for sensationalism. Announce that until the city has voting rights in Congress, you, as a District resident, won’t be paying any federal income tax. No representation, no taxation.” [The DC Universe] * “If you work for the DC government (including the schools), you won’t even have to take time off work, since Emancipation Day is a city holiday. Otherwise, please consider taking part of the day off and showing that you care about having voting representation in Congress, even if you can attend only the rally at 4 o’clock.” [DCDL] * How inappropriate is your therapist?

Heard On The Hill: Rep. Jerry Nadler is that guy who will steal your seat at the Tune Inn. [Roll Call] Inside the Beltway: Rep. Dennis Kucinich asks, “Do we think about what hate does to our own hearts?
