Hillary Clinton: Illuminatus

Trying to find a Republican candidate with the ability to pose a serious threat to Clinton in New York has been an uphill battle. There was Jean Piro, whose disastrous "do you have page 9" speech and revelations of a husband with a rap sheet for fraud led to a pretty hasty exit.

Clinton's latest opponent, Kathleen McFarland, also appears to have torpedoed her own campaign. But instead of a Homer-esque "D'oh!" with accompanying forehead slap, McFarland's big moment demands that once-popular indicator of total insanity-- strum lips with index finger while making funny sounds.

Former Reagan-era Pentagon official Kathleen "KT" McFarland stunned a crowd of Suffolk County Republicans on Thursday by saying:

"Hillary Clinton is really worried about me, and is so worried, in fact, that she had helicopters flying over my house in Southampton today taking pictures," according to a prominent GOP activist who was at the event.

"She wasn't joking, she was very, very serious, and she also claimed that Clinton's people were taking pictures across the street from her house in Manhattan, taking pictures from an apartment across the street from her bedroom," added the eyewitness, who is not involved in the Senate race.

Maybe they could get someone with a little more gravitas than Piro or MacFarland to run against Hillary. Is Eddie Deezen available?
