Since the weekend wilting of Hillary Clinton at the September 11 memorial, there has been no end of discussion of the possibility that she will or even can be replaced on the Democratic ticket. Some say yes. Some say she has to resign first. (This writer thought she had this settled yesterday after writing about it.) Some say the choice has already been made. Yet others are telling their fans and followers to not fall for this particular line of bull.
It’s enough to make this writer want to get all her George Orwell off the shelf.
This morning on Fox and Friends, our libertarian judge and lawyer friend Andrew Napolitano gave what is one of the most cohesive explanations of the options the Democrats have at the moment…and the quicksand they could step in depending on the route they take. (Keep watching to the end for a two-fer, and analysis of Rep. Jason Chaffetz’s serving the FBI yesterday.)

At least one outlet is reporting that the Democrats have already chosen a replacement candidate. Others are repeating the laughable talking point that Hillary just has pneumonia and will recover soon. (Seriously, they think the American people are stupid and don’t talk among ourselves? Or that medical issues are actually something we have in common with the elite? Pneumonia is not something you can just get over in “a couple of days” depending on the type.) The truth is that at this point, no one knows what reality is, because the people who do know are not talking. That’s why the credibility gap is wide and growing.
It’s enough to make patriots pull out their hair.
However this comes down, we are in for one heck of a ride in the coming weeks. And a history lesson. (Even I knew about Eagleton, although, he WAS my senator.)
