I thought this was big news (therefore not blogworthy), but when I've repeated this story people look at me like I'm crazy...
Last week, amongst the chaos of campaigning, Hillary Clinton decides to dress up for the Kentucky Derby (see FoxNews), donning this ridiculous hat, and telling reporters and supporters that she wants "everybody to place a little money on the filly," Eight Belles.
The little money would have gotten some results, as Eight Belles placed second in the Derby. Unfortunately, Eight Belles broke both front ankles shortly after crossing the finish line.
Having broken both front legs, the horse literally didn't have a leg to stand on (now I just feel dirty saying that) and had to be euthanized. Yes, they killed the horse on the track. No word if it was lethal injection or the good 'ol fashion shotgun.
Ironically the winner of the race is named Big Brown. I'm sure Obama is having a field day with that one.
Now you've heard the story.
