2006_3_batshitnuts1.jpgIt's starting to look increasingly likely the Hillary Clinton has made a pact with the devil, because all of her opponents' campaigns seem to go down in flames before they even get started. We all remember what happened last month with Jeanine ("Do I Have Page 10?") Pirro-- things were looking so bad that Pataki forced her to pull out of the race. Now it looks like a similar fate is about to befall KT McFarland, the new Republican hopeful. Earlier this week the papers began asking if she's been padding her resume. That would probably have been survivable, but today it looks like her campaign has officially jumped the shark. The Post has the story:

Former Reagan-era Pentagon official Kathleen "KT" McFarland stunned a crowd of Suffolk County Republicans on Thursday by saying:

"Hillary Clinton is really worried about me, and is so worried, in fact, that she had helicopters flying over my house in Southampton today taking pictures," according to a prominent GOP activist who was at the event.

"She wasn't joking, she was very, very serious, and she also claimed that Clinton's people were taking pictures across the street from her house in Manhattan, taking pictures from an apartment across the street from her bedroom," added the eyewitness, who is not involved in the Senate race.

Her campaign is saying that she meant it as a joke-- but the writing is on the wall. Who's up next?
