What Fresh Hell Is This?

The Next Truther Demand For The "Truth"

And now, ladies and gentlemen, Karl Rove has given us a peek at the next truther meme.

From Rupert Murdoch's NYPost:
Karl Rove stunned a conference when he suggested Hillary Clinton might have brain damage.

Onstage with Robert Gibbs and CBS correspondent and “Spies Against Armageddon” co-author Dan Raviv, Rove said Republicans should keep the Benghazi issue alive.

He said if Clinton runs for president, voters must be told what happened when she suffered a fall in December 2012.
And then the lying starts.
The official diagnosis was a blood clot. Rove told the conference near LA Thursday, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.”
The pagesix writer notes one of Rove's mistakes:
Despite Rove’s claims, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was discharged from New York Presbyterian Hospital after spending three days undergoing treatment for a potentially life-threatening blood clot.
3 days, 30 days, what's the difference when you're lying to the American public?

But what were the glasses for?

Let's turn to ABC for that one:
The thick glasses Hillary Clinton has been wearing in public since returning from a concussion and blood clot last month are the result of lingering effects of her health problems, a Clinton aide confirms.

"She'll be wearing these glasses instead of her contacts for a period of time because of lingering issues stemming from her concussion," said spokesman Philippe Reines. "With them on she sees just fine."
But here's the kicker.

Didn't Rove's friends on the right say that she was faking it all along?  Why yes they did - including, oddly enough, Murdoch's NYPost:
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.
But back to page six. A Clinton spokesperson is quoted as saying:
Karl Rove has deceived the country for years, but there are no words for this level of lying.
But it's probably the new normal.

See Rove calling out Gov. Strickland over his minion's witchhunt against Joe the Plumber. "Now is Gov. Strickland, to adopt his standard, either incompetent or lying? Simply because it was his appointee who did these things?”

Rove is a compulsive liar.
"Governor Strickland's own appointee as head of the employment commission was found to have been accessing confidential governmental data bases to find out private information about Joe the Plumber and leaking it to the press."

I had hoped you would back up
Gov. Ted Strickland's "debunking" of Rove's lies:
"Well, two things. First of all, the person who did that left my administration and secondly, no information was ever leaked to the press. That's just not a true statement"

I remember Gov. Ted Strickland defended Helen Jones-Kelley from this "Witchhunt" and was upset when Republicans swiftboated her actions causing her to resign.

"The governor values Helen Jones-Kelley's years of public service as a tireless advocate for the most vulnerable among us," the statement read. "He understands her decision and accepts her resignation."
