My irony meter just broke, but thank the universe for John Fugelsang’s wit as it’s been restored. We all know the GOP is terrified at the prospect of facing Hillary Clinton in 2016. That’s what Benghazi’s about and that’s what the new attack on former Secretary of State Clinton is all about — her age. That’s right, the party of old, white men is now attacking Hillary preemptively because she’ll be 69 years old if she runs in 2016. As Fugelsang in this clip from his show points out, there’s no small amount of irony to the party of McCain and Dole nominees knocking Democrats for putting up someone who would be as old as their patron saint,Ronald Reagan, was when he ran. I seem to remember quite a few worries about his senility towards the end of his presidency too.
It’s sad, pathetic and desperate. or as I like to call it, “typical Republican strategies.” Hillary 2016
