Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) announced that Hillary Clinton would finally testify about the deadly terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi, with the retiring Secretary of State “anxious” to talk to Congress about what she knows.
“I had some very good conversations with her chief of staff,” Corker told Mitchell. “My sense is, her hearing probably will take place the morning of the 22nd.”
And my sense is she will not, unless she feels that enough smoke is being popped on other issues (gun control, fiscal cliffs) that she can snake through the hearings on her belly, unscathed.
Most likely, the media will paint her "comeback" from her mysterious illnesses as a heart-warming story, thus making any Republican attacks on her heinous record appear to be cruel, thoughtless, and anti-women (of course).
But should attention refocus on her actual testimony, I predict she will come down with any one of the following Congress-cancelling diseases, maladies, and oddities:
Mumps (most believable - see right)
Itchy Vagina Syndrome
Kuru (aka Laughing Sickness)
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Restless Leg Syndrome
"Brain Tumor Part II: The Sequel"
My money is on the last one. Or - just to make sure no one dares to talk about it - I wouldn't rule out a case of IVS...
