Hillary's Pal, Huma?

What is with our Halloween and All Saints Day obsession with Hillary? Well, this stuff is just coming out and we've just had to post it.

Apparently, we've been behind the curve, however, on one interesting item. Pop quiz: who is the following individual?

Aw, shucks, the inset gives you a hint.

Hot rumor is that this sleek, charming individual, Hillary's personal assistant, Huma Abedin, is also, er, well, more deeply involved with the Smartest Woman in the World than you might think. Rumor has been around for awhile, but now, Mickey Kaus, no right winger, has seen fit to bring it out into the open, revealing that the LA Times has been sitting on a story about this for awhile. Who knew?

Making things more fun, Huma was raised in Saudi Arabia and is a practicing Muslim! Hokey Smoke, Bullwinkle! Or, maybe more appropriately, what would Allah think? Then again, this could be a convoluted and deviously clever form of Wahhabi jihad. Shades of Judith and Holofernes, although the jihadists might not appreciate our allusion.

Rumor are fun. We don't always have the time or the resources to sleuth them down, so we can't confirm this one, as much as we'd like to. But we'd have to observe that it's just like the media to cover up this kind of stuff for lefty Democrats—all the more so when something like this has been going on for a long time.

To be honest, given Bill's philandering and shameful abuse of perfectly fine cigars, we can't say we'd blame Hill for seeking a little solace elsewhere. But if this rumor is confirmed, it's not going to go down too well on the campaign trail.

Makes you reflect, too. Maybe that's why Hill has "stood by her man" all these years. We've always assumed that, like most leftist trolls from the 1960s, Bill and Hillary have what was then known fashionably as an "open marriage," i.e., you were married and all that, but if an interesting opportunity arose, well, then, who are you to interfere with your partner's pursuit of happiness?

We have also long suspected that Hill is actually a switch-hitter. Which would nicely explain a whole lot of things that we think the media knows already but has never bothered to explain.

Much more productive to dig for "fake but accurate" memos that make Republicans look bad.

Hat tip to Little Green Footballs for getting us started on this.

Don't miss the next exciting episode. Which might actually happen somewhere other than HazZzMat. And might depend on what the definition of "is" is.
