Wikileaked Email: Hillary's Going to Have to Stick Closely to Her Prepared Notes Because She's "Still Not Perfect in the Head"

Quick, let's elect her before we lose this one shot.

(Actually we'll get two shots. And I trust the Quisling Wing of the GOP will succeed both times. Won't that be nice.)

Top aide Huma Abedin warned the Clinton campaign team in a 2015 e-mail that Hillary was "still not perfect in her head" and would have to "stick to notes" during an event.

...

The exchange came at the end of a discussion among staffers about how Clinton would address then-GOP candidate Jeb Bush’s use of Super PAC money to fund his campaign.

"Yes. If she feels need to address Jeb directly -- would suggest the pivot," Clinton's director of communications, Jennifer Palmieri, wrote, referring to the remarks the team was preparing.

Abedin responded, "She's going to stick to notes a little closer this am, still not perfect in her head"

It was unclear whether Abedin was referring to a serious ailment.

Unclear, because there are other things they could be referring to.

Hillary Clinton campaign aides had a frantic email exchange in August 2015 over who should call the candidate to "sober her up some" at around 4:30 in the afternoon.

According to documents published by WikiLeaks, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta emailed communications aide Jennifer Palmieri with a question at around 2:00 p.m. "Should I call her and talk this through or better to leave with you?" Podesta wrote. "I'm worried she’ll get on with Cheryl [Mills] and we'll end up in a bad place."

Palmieri wrote back more than two hours later with a response: "I think you should call her and sober her up some."

Some might say that "sober her up some" isn't meant literally, but means, rather, "talk sense to this lunatic (who turns to her svengali Cheryl Mills, her distaff Sydney Blumenthal, to yes-man every bad, criminal idea she has).

Well, that's not really much better than sobering her up from being drunk.

But given the Concerns Noted by Huma Abedin about Hillary Clinton not being quite "perfect" in the head in the morning, and unable to think on her feet, I would not be quick to rule out the literal, "she's a stinking drunk who's soused herself again" interpretation.
