Life must be lonely for the two or three remaining sane conservative pundits out there. Thus we find certified-non crazy Kathleen Parker* trying to reason with those in her party, including former Bush administration officials, that Hillary Clinton really truly did not fake a blood clot to get out of testifying on Benghazi:
Clinton may well prefer to miss her day before the firing squad, but it is unlikely that doctors or a hospital would assist a secretary of state — or anyone — in concocting a fake affliction.
It’s sad that such an argument has to be stated, though I’m not sure it does: if you’re the type of person to believe that the Secretary of State would fake a concussion, what are the chances the above logic, or any other, will appeal to you? We’re two days away from someone at Breitbart.com researching Clinton’s doctors and finding one whose mother-in-law lives in Chicago and therefore Bill Ayers. Why is Parker bothering with these people?
* Parker, you will recall, never caught Palin fever, an apostasy for which she was nearly excommunicated from the party.
