It's pretty hysterical how the left wants to set the rules for civil discourse over presidential candidates' health and habits.To them, it's really bad to talk, and virtually evil to speculate, about Hillary Clinton's demonstrations of frailty and other possible illnesses seen during the campaign, which are certainly not limited to her "medical situation" at the 9/11 anniversary ceremony two…

Michael Steele Dings Howard Dean: 'You're Shilling for Hillary'

December 21st, 2015 9:15 PM
