Iron My Shirts!

Hillary Clinton had an emotionally-charged day yesterday, coming to the verge of tears at one campaign stop, and later being subjected to sexist verbal abuse at another. The latter scene was so surreal, it seemed almost... staged. A number of bloggers expressed surprise that Ms. Clinton responded so quickly to maximize the political advantage of the moment. I shamefully admit that I was among those who suspected it might even have been staged by the Clinton campaign. I envisioned a scene a little like this:

Now it appears that the event was staged -- but not by the Clinton campaign. Of course, if the perpetrators were dressed as priests, they might have gotten away in the pandemonium afterwards.

Update: Confirmed -- a radio stunt.
