Quite frankly, Hillary Clinton appears to be losing it. She is letting her hair down, literally and otherwise. Based on her behavior lately, the former first lady/current secretary of state is either trying to rehabilitate her stoic reputation, ecstatic that Bill’s off supporting African farmers, or throwing caution to the wind and loosening up a bit.
Over the years, Hillary has said and done some pretty crazy things. Who can forget when Hillary, born in 1947, concocted the story that her late mother Dorothy named her after Mount Everest mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary, who became famous five years after the little Rodham was born?
Or how about when, recounting a 1996 trip to Bosnia, Mrs. Clinton “misspoke” when she apparently mistook receiving flowers from a little girl for running across the Tulza tarmac, dodging sniper fire?
Inserting her family into the 9/11 catastrophe, Hillary even claimed that Chelsea, who was home in bed at the time, was jogging around the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001. When she was seeking a Senate seat in New York State, Hillary shamelessly reached into her carpetbag and pulled out a “Die-hard Yankee Fan” baseball cap.
Mrs. Clinton blamed allegations of Bill’s peccadilloes on a “vast right wing conspiracy”; she lifted “gifts” from the White House and called it a “clerical error”; she perceived herself to be instrumental in both the Irish peace process and the economic recovery of the 1990s; and she jokingly (but not really) credited the fall of Libya and death of Gaddafi to her visit. These are but a few examples of bizarre statements and behavior that until now appeared to be only for political purposes.
Recently, after ditching her signature scrunchie and casting off that banana clip, Hillary officially let her hair down. She’s “come out of the closet,” so to speak, in the party-girl sense of the word. Either that or the wheels started coming off Hillary’s restraint bus back in April, when a photograph was circulated of “Hillz” submitting a text message on her Blackberry to the “Texts from Hillary” Tumblr blog while wearing a pair of sunglasses that would make Men in Black 3 star Will Smith proud.
Then, a few days later, in Cartagena, Colombia, while attending the Summit of the Americas that excluded Cuba, just past midnight with a party of 12 female aides, Condoleezza Rice’s replacement was seen swilling a frosty “Aguila pilsner cerveza” out of the bottle and whooping it up to a Cuban beat on the dance floor of Café Havana. The only thing missing was a shot of Mrs. Clinton puffing on one of Bill’s favorites, a Montecristo Especial No. 2.
After just barely living down the girls’ night out, at the swearing-in ceremony of Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs Michael Hammer, freewheeling party girl Hillary howled like she’d been hitting the Aguilas again. The secretary of state showed up to what’s normally a routine, boring ritual wearing purple costume jewelry and green sunglasses.
With Russia sending attack helicopters to Syria, and with China, Syria, Iran, and Russia planning joint war games in the Middle East, clearly, the secretary of state was focused on an issue that far exceeds such trivia. Ribbing the purple-loving Hammer, Hillary said, “Mike, I was in a real dilemma. I have pantsuits in nearly every color — except purple.”
Let’s just say “thank the good Lord that Hammer isn’t fond of ‘Gap Blue.’” But wait! Hillary doesn’t own a purple pantsuit? Well, why didn’t she just borrow back her 1993 inaugural ball gown from the Smithsonian for the event? That was a lovely shade of purple.
Fashion-challenged for the occasion, Clinton told Hammer’s purple-clothed family that she needed to be “appropriately attired … [and] … proceeded to put on purple Mardi Gras beads and what she called her ‘piece de resistance,’ wing-tipped purple and green sunglasses.”
Hillary then looked at those in attendance, gave an “Oh… kay!” and cackled a tad, donned the sunglasses, and prepared to administer the oath of office. Turning to Mike Hammer, with a One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest-worthy, loud, and drawn-out “Hee hee hee ha ha ha,” Hillary laughed like “she’s mentally ‘illary” before she said, “So! Repeat after me…”
The oath even included a dose of comic relief. Without mentioning Barack Obama and Eric Holder, Hillary asked Hammer to repeat the words: “I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.”
Looking like she just fell off a float on Bourbon Street, Clinton, with a straight face, then asked Mr. Hammer if he was taking the “obligation freely … [and] without any mental reservation[.]” Hammer said, “Yes,” and the swearing-in was concluded with more cackling and hugs and kisses all around.
So while the nation spirals downward into an economic and social abyss, there are a few possibilities: Hillary Clinton has officially left the “mentally sound reservation,” she has been hanging around too much with Nancy “Lost It Altogether” Pelosi, she has lost interest in convincing America she should be the one answering the White House phone at 3:00 am, she has ditched the estrogen patch, or she is finally revealing the lunatic side that for the last 20-something years she’s tried in vain to conceal.
Dems Admit Obama’s Not Eligible….
Weary of defending in court the Constitutional eligibility of their man at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the Democrat Party has finally admitted Barack Obama is not qualified to be president of the United States– and that it doesn’t matter.
According to a motion filed by Party attorneys in a Tennessee eligibility lawsuit, “…Defendants [the Tennessee Democrat Party and the Democrat National Committee] assert that the Tennessee Democrat Party has the right to nominate whoever it chooses to run as a candidate, including someone who is not qualified for the office.”
In numerous previous lawsuits questioning the Constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama, Democrats have maintained that voters, not the Constitution, should be the final arbiters of presidential eligibility. Though a disgraceful assertion on its face, such mindless rambling was about all that desperate Democrat attorneys had in their arsenals, apart from the perpetually employed “plaintiffs lack standing” defense.
But now, the cat is out of the bag, and the true sentiments of Democrat Party officials have finally been aired. It seems that, according to the left, as long as the acting president has the requisite contempt for the United States, is willing to work tirelessly to destroy the national economy, and will ignore both the rule of law and his Constitutional duty to enforce it, he is eminently qualified to hold the country’s top job.

From Doug Ross:
If we weren’t actually living through this, I’d think we were reading a bad Tom Clancy novel (but I repeat myself).
As the Moroccan who plotted a suicide bombing inside the U.S. Capitol appears in federal court today, much of the mainstream media coverage omits a crucial part of the story; this is the class of illegal immigrant the Obama Administration is sparing from deportation.
That’s because, like millions of others, the would-be assassin didn’t have a criminal record and thus never posed a threat to the public, according to the feds. Like many of the illegal aliens protected by the Obama Administration the attempted bomber, 29-year-old Amine El Khalifi, came to the U.S. as a kid (“through no fault of his own” as the open borders movement says). He could have easily qualified for discounted college tuition at a number of taxpayer-funded colleges and universities nationwide.
El Khalifi lived under the radar in Alexandria Virginia while he orchestrated attacking a number of targets, including military buildings, a Washington D.C. restaurant popular among military officials and a synagogue. Last week he planned to blow up the nation’s capitol as a suicide bomber in a martyrdom operation…
Incredibly, El Khalifi is the prototype of illegal immigrant protected by Obama’s backdoor amnesty plan. Officially launched in mid-November, the initiative halts the removal of illegal aliens with no criminal records. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reviews all deportation cases and operates a “training program” to assure that enforcement agents and prosecuting attorneys don’t remove certain types of illegal immigrants.
The idea, according to the administration, is to deport only undocumented aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes or pose a national security risk. That means a large class of illegal immigrants are being granted de facto amnesty, which is technically illegal without the consent of Congress. So far thousands have been spared removal under the outrageous initiative.
As if this weren’t bad enough, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) records indicate thatserious criminals are not being targeted for removal either
(CNSNews.com) — In an op-ed published Saturday in Newsweek, President Barack Obama marked the 40th anniversary of the enactment of Title IX — which bars gender discrimination in education — and noted that more women in the United States are now graduating from college than men, which he characterized as “a great accomplishment” for the nation.
“In fact, more women as a whole now graduate from college than men,” Obama wrote. “This is a great accomplishment — not just for one sport or one college or even just for women but for America. And this is what Title IX is all about.”
According to the Census Bureau, 685,000 men and 916,000 women graduated from college in 2009 (the latest year for which statistics have been published). That means 25 percent fewer men received college degrees than women. . . .
In his Newsweek op-ed, President Obama said Title IX helped America ensure what he called “equal education.”
“Well, 40 years ago, committed women from around the country, driven by everyone who said they couldn’t do something, worked with Congress to ban gender discrimination in our public schools,” Obama said. “Title IX was the result of their efforts, and this week, we celebrated its 40th anniversary — 40 years of ensuring equal education, in and out of the classroom, regardless of gender.”
Weary of defending in court the Constitutional eligibility of their man at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the Democrat Party has finally admitted Barack Obama is not qualified to be president of the United States — and that it doesn’t matter.
According to a motion filed by Party attorneys in a Tennessee eligibility lawsuit, ” … Defendants [the Tennessee Democrat Party and the Democrat National Committee] assert that the Tennessee Democrat Party has the right to nominate whoever it chooses to run as a candidate, including someone who is not qualified for the office.”

Mark Oxner, candidate for Congress (R-Florida, District 9), talks about Alan Grayson’s crazy ideas while changing the oil on his truck. He disputes Grayson’s crazy notion that lack of sufficient “income re-distribution” is why America’s math scores are lower than they should be.
Alan Grayson wants to give advice on how to educate our children in America. He says we’re falling behind in math because we don’t redistribute income like Communist China. But you know, maybe a guy who wants to increase spending when we’re already fifteen trillion dollars in debt, isn’t the best person to give advice on math. Yeah, I want grooming tips from Fidel Castro. Diet from Michael Moore. Manners from Bill Maher. Let’s do the math and keep Alan Grayson out of Congress.
The obvious, logical answer is that it was indeed a gimmick designed to create a pretext for more gun control.
But would Obama find that revelation, if it went public, a serious problem even with an election looming? I don’t think so.
While no Leftist could support the idea of selling guns to anyone, especially drug cartels, I’m certain that they’d find some rationale to excuse Obama’s scheme.
The ends justify the means in their eyes. So they’d say “Obama tried to do the right thing, he just went about it the wrong way.”
And Obama wouldn’t stand to lose any support on the Right, he has none now.
As for Independents, they already suspect Obama has an anti-gun agenda judging by the spike in gun sales since he was elected.
So if Obama has nothing to fear by the disclosure here in the US, why is he so desperate to keep it a secret?
The answer lies in Mexico.
This has international implications. If it could proved beyond all doubt that Obama and Holder conspired to arm Mexican drug cartels…
