Clearing the Path

It is almost as though the universe itself has decided that Hillary Clinton must be re-elected to the U.S. Senate.

One of Sen. Hillary Clinton's Republican rivals suspended her campaign "until further notice" Monday following her teenage daughter's arrest on a shoplifting charge.

Kathleen Troia "KT" McFarland, who has been in a bitter primary fight against former Yonkers mayor John Spencer, has canceled her upcoming events with barely three weeks left before the Sept. 12 election, her spokesman William O'Reilly said.

"This past Saturday, my 16-year-old daughter, Camilla, was caught shoplifting from two stores in Suffolk County," McFarland said in a statement. Her daughter will not contest the charges, two counts each of petty theft and possession of stolen goods, McFarland said.

Further details on the arrest were not immediately available.

"My husband Alan and I are deeply alarmed by this incident and will be spending every waking hour in the coming days dealing head-on with the repercussions of her actions," she said. "I will resume active campaigning only when I am certain that my daughter is OK and getting the help she needs."
They are dropping like aphids in a cloud of DDT.

I don't know if this means Hillary is benefitting from black magic or divine intervention, but it sure seems like somebody is clearing the path for her.
