Hey Your Shoe Is Unhinged

The latest conspiracy theory from the right is that the incident where some poor misguided soul threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton was staged for her benefit.

Rush Limbaugh jumped on board the crazy train Monday, telling listeners that he can “totally relate” to those who believe that “everything the Clintons do is staged or choreographed.” While he has not studied the incident in detail, he believes what people told him about Clinton’s reaction not being “natural.”

“I’m sorry, I’m ill-equipped to comment,” Limbaugh said, proceeding, of course to comment at some length. “Maybe it’s because, in my subconscious, I think it was staged, or set up, or whatever. … I don’t know why anybody would be throwing a shoe at Hillary unless — maybe it’s an attempt to make the Benghazi people look like nuts and lunatics and wackos.”

The Benghazi people don’t need any help in looking like nuts and lunatics and wackos.
