HILLARY FEINTS TO THE RIGHT
In the “the play must go on” tradition, that only Ethel Barrymore could surpass, Hillary took her 2005 healthcare version on the campaign circuit while simultaneously suffering a gastrointestinal disturbance. It is suspected that Ms. Rodham’s healthcare allows for free abortions on demand. So last week the Democratic ’08 hopeful tried to soften her message by saying abortions should be “rare,” and then in a moment of extraordinarily uncommon Hillary humor, she added, “And well done.” Before she could get to her punch line yesterday at Canisius College in Upstate NY, she felt dizzy and fainted.
Dr. Roshini Rajapaksa, a gastroenterologist at Manhattan's NYU Medical Center, who was not involved in Clinton's care, said someone with a stomach virus should drink as much fluids as possible. "That's how you maintain your blood pressure," she said. "When you're standing for a long period of time, blood tends to pool towards your legs and if you don't get enough blood to your brain, you'll start to feel dizzy and like you're going to pass out."
It was noted that, given Dr. Rajapaksa’s explanation, Ms. Rodham must be in a constant state of vertigo.
