Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s performance during the Commander in Chief Forum last night, even though it was a managed environment, was nothing short of disastrous. Even as someone who disdains Clinton, I found it difficult to watch her all alone on stage, trying to work her way through questions to which she obviously had no answer.
However, she may not have been quite so alone.
Several eagle-eyed viewers noticed something a bit … well, off.
One of them was conservative Hollywood icon James Woods, who tweeted about it:

Yes, that’s something in her ear, and no, I’m pretty sure it’s not a pre-release set of those Apple AirPods Tim Cook announced Wednesday.
Now, I’d like to take you back to a simpler time: the autumn of 2004, back when the Red Sox were still lingering under “the curse,” people still bought music on CDs and the only Kardashian most Americans knew was that weird guy who was O.J. Simpson’s kinda-lawyer.
During one of the presidential debates between incumbent President Bush and then-Sen. John Kerry, a slight bulge was spotted under President Bush’s suit.
This could have been anything. It could have been something put there by the Secret Service. It could have been a protective vest. Or it could have been nothing at all, just weird camera angles and a poorly tailored suit.
The next morning, American mainstream media officially lost its mind.
In fact, no less than The Washington Post ran an article about the mysterious bulge, saying that it had led “to widespread cyber-speculation that he was wired to receive help with his answers.”
The capital’s paper of record even went so far as to ask the White House for comment. They “refused to provide an on-the-record comment, saying that it would dignify a baseless issue, and referred questions to the Bush-Cheney campaign.”
Now, all this was over a bulge, without any photographic evidence of a wire or anything in Bush’s ear. Apparently, whatever he was wired with was some sort of super-mystical audio device that sent sound waves through your spine.
Fast forward 12 years. Hillary Clinton is definitively spotted with something in her ear. It could be one of three things.
The first is that it’s an earpiece for advisers to feed her answers. This seems pretty likely, and would prove that she is the sort of candidate who has few ideas except for the ones carefully focus-grouped and fed to her by advisers.
The second is that it’s a hearing aid. This is somewhat likely, and would prove that she has health issues that her campaign has been covering up.
The third is that it’s wireless earphones because she just can’t stop listening to that new Avalanches album. This is highly unlikely. (Although I would recommend giving it a listen. It’s not as good as “Since I Left You,” but few albums are and it’s pretty darn close.)
Given that, this should be the lead story on every morning newscast. George Stephanopoulos should be wringing his hands on “Good Morning America” and talking about how he never expected this from a woman he knew so closely and that the country needed answers.
What have you heard this morning? Nothing. Less than zero. Any discussion of this has been limited to alternative conservative media and Twitter.
There is obviously something in there. It is obviously in there for a reason that probably doesn’t have an explanation that augurs well for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. And there are no questions being asked.
Am I the only one who sees the insanity of this? Am I the only one who remembered how the media treated Bush over this?
