Appalling

by Dave Schuler on December 18, 2012

I am genuinely appalled at the New York Post’s editorial insinuating that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is feigning injury in order to escape testifying before Congress about the incidents that occurred in Benghazi last month:

Clinton’s story beggars belief: While traveling in Europe, she contracted a stomach virus . . . which made her dehydrated . . . which made her faint at home . . . which caused her to fall and hit her head . . . which gave her a nasty concussion.

So Clinton’s deputies will appear in her stead before the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday to explain the State Department’s failures.

That is not nearly enough.

I do not much care for the woman but I wish her well, am inclined to take her word for it, and give her the benefit of the doubt. The Post needs more than imputed motive.

Easily enough done. She’s not young, and she’s on the road all the time.

Where do these writers come from?

Editorials are increasingly looking like better-edited partisan blog posts.
