Who replaces Hillary?

Shortly after the conventions, we had an outbreak of RNC-to-replace-Trump stories. Clinton spokesman/ABC News star George Stephanopoulos was the first to push this nonsense. Disgusting -- and no one in the media calls out this millionaire hack.

Now a month later, Democrats may have to replace Hillary.

Her mysterious departure due to overheating in the sweltering 75-degree morning in New York City at the 9-11 commemoration has even Chris Cillizza now saying we may now discuss milady's health without being labeled deplorable.

I’m seeing enough Dem pundits running with this as suddenly being a big story that I wonder if they’re looking for an excuse to dump her for someone who might beat Trump easily.
That's an amusing assumption that there is someone in the land "who might beat Trump easily."

From Scott Adams:
If humans were rational creatures, the time and place of Clinton’s “overheating” wouldn’t matter at all. But when it comes to American psychology, there is no more powerful symbol of terrorism and fear than 9-11 . When a would-be Commander-in-Chief withers – literally – in front of our most emotional reminder of an attack on the homeland, we feel unsafe. And safety is our first priority. 
Hillary Clinton just became unelectable.
The mainstream media might not interpret today’s events as a big deal. After all, it was only a little episode of overheating. And they will continue covering the play-by-play action until election day. But unless Trump actually does shoot someone on 5th Avenue, he’s running unopposed.
So Democrats dump Hillary and get someone else. Who?

First name up is Tim Kaine, a lifer Democrat who hacked his way up from city attorney of Richmond to governor and later the Senate. He's best known for accepting more than $160,000 in "gifts" from lobbyists legally. And by lobbyists, I mean people who wanted government business, not ideological wackos. He's already on the ticket, right?

Joe Biden? Yes, Americans want four more years of race-baiting and rolling over to communists and other dictators who hate America. Let's see, we've given nukes to North Korea and Iran. Who's left? Cuba? Sure, no problem. Miami doesn't vote Democrat, so who cares?

Elizabeth Warren? Yes, Fauxcahontas. No skeletons in her tepee. Bonus: She can become the fourth consecutive nominee from Massachusetts to lose.

Bernie Sanders? A communist. No, too conservative for today's Democratic Party.

Michelle Obama? Too shrewish.

Dr. Drew? Well, since he lost that CNN-style gig, he has a lot of spare time on his hands.

Chris Stevens? U.S. Ambassador with plenty of Middle East experience in the Terrorist War. (What's that? Oh.) Um, nevermind.

Ted Strickland? He's a former governor of Ohio, and no Republican has won the presidency without Ohio. Plus, in light of Rob Portman's 10-point lead in the polls in their Senate race, Strickland is looking for a safer place on the ballot.

Chelsea! The brains of Caroline Kennedy without, like, um, you know, the Valley Girl accent?

  1. "Chelsea! The brains of Caroline Kennedy without, like, um, you know, the Valley Girl accent?"

    Eeeew!! Like, gross me out! Like, barf me with a spoon!

    1. Not only was it gnarly, it was bug-infested!

    2. Like gag me with a spoon! Chelsea? Like, her toenails are like so gross, like no one can handle it when she comes in for a mani-pedi, like totally disgusting, she should be like soooo embarrassed.

      But she isn't, which is sort of like so bitchin', you know, to like, just defy everyone with your totally disgusting toenails and they all ignore it.

    3. Like um, it looks like um, the like um, three basketeers are getting in on the um, action here.

  2. I think the MSM/DNC axis is switching from the standard "How DARE you question Her health?!" to "Only a hateful bigot would deny the presidency to a sick old grandmother."

  3. Walter Mondale. He has experience as a last-minute replacement from 2002.

    1. When your candidate's on the fritz, who you gonna call?

  4. "Chelsea! The brains of Caroline Kennedy without, like, um, you know, the Valley Girl accent?"

    Wow, that's cruel beyond belief.

    true, but still...

  5. Hillary's health emergency did not start today. It began last Friday and just finally worked its way out today. Her listless appearance after her national security meeting is the tell. She was not feeling well even then, I will bet, but knew it would be political suicide if she failed to attend today's memorial service. She wobbled on the sidewalk, was held up by her aides, and collapsed as she was lifted into the van by the Secret Service. This is not "overheating"; it is either total physical exhaustion or maybe something even more serious. The campaign is taking a toll on her health. Clearly she does not have the stamina needed to be president.

    There is no way that Hillary would ever volunteer to withdraw as the Party's nominee. This is her last chance to grab the brass ring, and she knows it. If the Party were to take the unilateral step to replace her, her supporters would stay home on election day. If Joe Biden were selected to replace her, Bernie Sanders' supporters would stay home on election day. If Sanders were to replace her, Trump would walk away with the vote of every independent in the country and win handily.

    The Party has no choice but to stick with the Gollum and hope she can eke out a victory employing a full frontal assault on Trump. If you thought the campaign was already pretty nasty, be prepared for a lot worse now that the Dems are faced with the real prospect of losing.

    1. It occurred to me today that Hillary is being dragged -- figuratively and literally -- to the finish line.

    2. Hillary in drag. Yes, I can see that...but would much prefer to unsee it.

  6. Prediction: Hillary will drop out due to failing health. Obama will announce the elections have to be delayed until next year so a replacement can be found. The media, the Democrats and the Republican establishment are completely behind him. You heard it here first.

    1. Who the hell's her doctor? Frank Abagnale Jr.?

    2. Now I just spit some Bud out of my mouth. Damn you, Dave!

  7. My guess: Fauxahontas but Kaine might put up a fight...
    Kaine reminds me of Elmer Fudd.

  8. You reckon, as Trump pulls in front, there's some very nervous people at the IRS this week?

  9. Replies
    1. This is like the Paul Is Dead Beatles story! Lovin it...

  10. Hillary Clinton, Bob Dole for the 21st century!

    She's not dead yet and it's her turn, dammit!

    Steve in Greensboro

  11. Shamu needs to go back to the security of her protective bubble shaped aquarium!

  12. Morris is all wet. There will be no so-called committee replacement. Sanders very cleverly position himself during the DNC Convention in the Rules Committee to become HRC'S immediate replacement by being nominated at the convention and foreclosing a committee replacement in the event of Hillary's withdrawal,

  13. Hacking Hillary can always get a job in that commercial, "Help! I've fallen and I can't get up?" Deplorable enough?

    BTW, I am a proud member of the Basket of Deplorables just like I'm a proud member of the VRWC. I still have my official membership card for the VRWC right here.


    I've been saying it for a year now that Hillary would not be the final candidate and Biden would be her replacement.

    The one way the Obama administration loses control of the Democrat party is for the Clintons to take it. That will not be allowed. Obama had the opportunity to see her ass dragged off to prison but that hasn't happened nor will it. A deal has been made and she will be leaving for "health reasons". Obama will have Biden replace her.
    All of the Presstitutes will cheer and start banging out the message that a sane likeable not scary candidate can now be elected to the Presidency.
    And hundreds of millions of low information citizens will have no idea that the final nail has been pounded into the coffin of democracy.
    The only part I've not decided is whether to call it a murder at the hands of the progressives or a suicide by a people mesmerized by bread and circuses.

    1. BIDEN, BIDEN, BIDEN, keep them rumors ridin' RAWHIDE!
      Hillaree, Hillaraaa, Hillaree, Hilleraaa, ha,ha, ha, ha!
      I love to go a stumbling, along this lonesome track...

      (Don't know what got into me, but I'm gonna take something for it.)

  15. No S**t folks:

    OBAMA may demand to run, Constitution or no.

  16. Hillary isn't feeling well -- she saw the latest poll numbers.

    And not the public polls, the internal polls. I'd say there is less than a 50% chance of her making the first debate.

    Yes, the Dems are looking to replace her.
    Let's review this last week:
    1. Politico publishes a story that Dems are worried with the polls tightening because Hillary should be leading a vulgarian like Trump by double digits.
    2. Hillary bombs the Lauer forum by being an angry, disagreeable shrew (i.e. her true self).
    3. The MSM all of a sudden decides to report the "ade it a week earlier during an interview with Israeli tv.
    4. Today MSM reporting on her health now after weeks of dismissing any question of it as sexist conspiracy theories.

    Dems want a do-over.

    The thing is, though -- Jeb! was beating Trump by double digits when it was all "in theory." Heck, so was Hillary before Trump was the actual nominee.

    IF Hillary is forced out, no matter how well the replacement is polling now hypothetically against Trump, once a real contest begins Trump will destroy him/her in a NY minute as he has ALL the others.

    1. #3 should read:

      3. The MSM all of a sudden decides to report the "basket of deplorables" comment she made at the fundraiser Friday when they ignored her making the exact same comment in an interview last week with Israeli TV.


  17. Replacement? I wonder if Gross Lee Generalistic is free.
