Tweet of the Day: In wake of most graphic video yet, Hillary pledges allegiance to Planned Parenthood

Tweet of the Day: In wake of most graphic video yet, Hillary pledges allegiance to Planned Parenthood

Hillary Clinton’s foundering presidential campaign is nothing if it’s not confusing. On the one hand, the former secretary of state is so committed to remaining non-committal, even on issues that are “safe” — Exhibit A is the Keystone pipeline — that she is drawing fire from the left. Meanwhile, she has no qualms about embracing wholesale issues that could come back to bite any Democratic White House prospect.

The video embedded in the tweet that follows was shot yesterday in Nashua, N.H., where Clinton was stumping. Her remarks, which include an affirmative vote of confidence for a number of liberal hot buttons items, Planned Parenthood among them, were made the same day the latest undercover video was made public by Center for Medical Progress.

The footage, which shows Planned Parenthood doctors and pathologists standing above bloody fetal parts casually discussing prices, is so graphic and disturbing that alleged corporate sponsors of the organization are now overtly denying any connection with it. Why Clinton would come out now, just before the stuff hits the fan, and full-throatily endorse an organization that is taking heat for practices it has sworn to abjure?
