Potomac Fever is a political “disease” in which a person has a greatly enhanced view of their importance once they get to Washington. I believe I have found another one. The main symptom is a frantic desire to stay in the limelight despite losing all political relevance. I think I will call it Palinitis. This is named for Sarah Palin, who had one of the worst cases on record.
I believe Hillary Clinton has an advanced case of Palinitis. She spent a quarter-century in the public eye. Her time is up but she doesn’t seem to realize it. For some time, she got attention by offering dozens of excuses for losing to Donald Trump. Her attacks on President Trump and Republicans in general have been drowned out.
She apparently decided she needs to be more outrageous. She claimed she would win the nomination if she ran. Now she had viciously attacked presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard by claiming she is a Russian asset. Gabbard has served her country both in the military and political office. She doesn’t deserve this malicious smear.
Clinton is overstaying her welcome. It’s time for her to get off the stage.
