Nancy has

03 Jul

always been dumber than a box of rocks. She has “splinter skills” that have helped her get elected and stay elected, but splinter skills are not the same as global intelligence.

But now there is something different. She is getting quite old and is glitching out on far too regular a basis. And as with most head injuries, there is agnosognosia, which is the condition where she doesn’t perceive just how gorked she really is. It certainly is partially a reflexive denial of weakness, but a good part of it is rolled up in the brain damage (in this case age-related) itself. As Hillary so clearly showed us, the machinery eventually breaks down. It’s just that most of us are not in the public spotlight when that happens.

Pretty much

any honest person recognizes that this is a problem.

Now before the crap-eating apologists get all hoity-toity about not making diagnoses without examining the patient, let me just say, DUH! Let me also say that no diagnosis is made! They are not saying, “She has TB.” They are not putting it into her medical record. They are simplyvsaying that she has uncontrolled coughing and that could represent several things or even “I think it is most likely a symptom of ____”. They very clearly are not making a formal diagnosis–this is just more stupidity meant to fool the rubes while shielding Hillary. Unfortunately, those who do not actually diagnose are easily fooled on this.
