Wingnut Week In Review: Brain Damaged?

Terrance Heath

This week, Karl Rove proved once again that his Bush-era nickname “Turd Blossom” was well-earned. Just when you thought he couldn’t sink any lower, Rove launched a laughably desperate attack on Hillary Clinton.

Karl “Bush’s Brain” Rove said the Hillary Clinton may have “traumatic brain injury” from a fall in 2012, and then tried to play it off as a misunderstood call for “transparency” regarding Clinton’s health.

Naturally, “The Big Dog” fired back, complete with his trademark lip biting, and a twinkle in his eye that indicates he’s been waiting to pounce.

White House spokesman Jay Carney got in a nice little jab too, with a reminder that Rove “might have been the last person in America” to figure out who won the last presidential election. And House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi suggested Rove might be “projecting his own weaknesses” on to Hillary Clinton.

This isn’t likely the end of it, though. Washington Times columnist Charles Hurt suggested that Clinton should have been “checked into a rubber room” for her “psychosis.” Fox News once thought Hillary’s fall and concussion was fake, but now says it means she can’t be president.

Here’s the rest of the best of the worst in wingnuttery this week:
