With poll after poll after poll showing Hillary Clinton leading any Republican in a hypothetical 2016 presidential race, her opponents on the right hope to prove either that she's too scandal-ridden or too sick to actually run. It's a banner day for the theories: a new document dump from the Clinton Presidential Library and a rewarmed look at Clinton's late-2012 health scare are both getting attention.

....At the end of 2012, Clinton passed out while battling the stomach flu, which led doctors to discover a blood clot near her brain. It has since been treated, and she's back to full strength.

Or is she?, which might as well be the headline of The Daily Caller's article reporting on "whispers" about Clinton's health. A spokesman told the site's Alex Pappas that "She’s 100%" (adding a snarky "very caring of you to ask"), but Pappas is still hearing whispers. One of those whispers was on Twitter, which is not exactly a whisper. Roger Stone, a Republican consultant best known for his massive Nixon tattoo, tweeted simply, "@HillaryClinton not running for health reasons. Remember you heard it first from the #StoneZone." Asked for more information or a source, Stone coyly remained silent. Making the prediction sort of like the guy at the Super Bowl party who says I bet they score a touchdown here and then brags about his prescience once it happens. Pappas also tells readers about how some tabloids think Clinton might be sick, and also The Washington Post raised the issue a year ago. Whispers.

None of which is to say that Clinton 1) will not be sidelined by some new revelation, 2) is perfectly healthy, or 3) will run at all. It's just to say that we're in the portion of the 2016 cycle during which the only way Clinton could be eliminated from contention is if 1) she is sidelined by a new revelation, 2) is not healthy, or 3) decides not to run. And only two of those things might be uncovered by intrepid sleuthing or whispering.

Ghost wanted to stay on vacation forever and so he visited a neighborhood tattoo parlor to have "On Vacation" written across his forehead.

Greenpeace was an anti nuclear bomb testing group before it was Greenpeace. It became Greenpeace and more about the environment after Moore joined the group. A co-founder.
What Hannity Didn’t Tell You About His Climate-Change Denying,‘Co-Founder Of Greenpeace’ Guest

Last night, Sean Hannity hosted Patrick Moore, introduced merely as “co-founder of Greenpeace,” who has found “zero evidence that the earth is warming because of human activity.” But for some reason, Hannity failed to mention that Moore’s more recent resumé– like, for the last 20 years – has him as a spokesman for the very industries fingered by real climate change experts.

According to Greenpeace, Moore is not a co-founder. The organization says on its website,“Although Mr. Moore played a significant role in Greenpeace Canada for several years, he did not found Greenpeace.

But wait, Greenpeace has more to say about Moore:

Patrick Moore is a Paid Spokesperson for the Nuclear Industry

In April 2006, the Nuclear Energy Institute, the principal lobby for the nuclear industry, launched the Clean And Safe Energy Coalition and installed former Bush Administration EPA Administrator Christine Todd Whitman and Mr. Moore as its co-chairs. The Clean and Safe Energy Coalition was part of a public relations project spearheaded by the public relations giant Hill & Knowlton as part of its estimated $8 million contract with the nuclear industry.

Patrick Moore Does Not Represent Greenpeace

For more than 20 years, Mr. Moore has been a paid spokesman for a variety of polluting industries, including the timber, mining, chemical and the aquaculture industries. Most of these industries hired Mr. Moore only after becoming the focus of a Greenpeace campaign to improve their environmental performance. Mr. Moore has now worked for polluters for far longer than he ever worked for Greenpeace. Greenpeace opposes the use of nuclear energy because it is a dangerous and expensive distraction from real solutions to climate change.

Patrick Moore frequently portrays himself as a founder or co-founder of Greenpeace, and many news outlets have repeated this characterization. Although Mr. Moore played a significant role in Greenpeace Canada for several years, he did not found Greenpeace. Phil Cotes, Irving Stowe, and Jim Bohlen founded Greenpeace in 1970. Patrick Moore applied for a berth on the Phyllis Cormack in March, 1971 after the organization had already been in existence for a year. A copy of his application letter and Greenpeace's response are available here (PDF).

Moore was part of the committee when it changed from Don't Make a Wave Committee to Greenpeace. Greenpeace wasn't Greenpeace in 1970 and 1971 when it was founded. I can see how the means justifies the end people can disown him.

What is so polluting about nuclear energy? It matters more about where you put these reactors, like it is a bad idea to put one on the coast in an earthquake prone country.
