1. Someone threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton's head. At a convention in Las Vegas yesterday, someone threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton, narrowly missing her head. Clinton ducked out of the way and asked "was that a bat?" Once she realized it was a shoe, Clinton quickly quipped "Is that someone throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque du Soleil?" (She was in Vegas, remember. Lots of Cirque du Soleil jokes to be made.) Later, Clinton added "Thank goodness she didn't play softball like I did." The whole incident was obviously staged as a way to garner sympathy for Clinton before she launches her 2016 campaign for the White House. Keep an eye out, folks: over the next few weeks, Clinton will be dodging fruit, small pets, umbrellas, and more.
