(Newser) – Is Hillary Clinton gearing up for a White House run by having stooges chuck shoes at her? That appears to be Rush Limbaugh's theory: He told listeners yesterday that he has "people telling me her reaction wasn’t natural," Politico reports. He explained that he found it hard to care about the incident last week, "because in my subconscious I think it was staged or set up or whatever. Look, folks, I know these people so well that I do not attach much genuineness to them at all."

The alleged shoe-thrower, Alison Ernst, faces misdemeanor federal charges including trespassing in a restricted building and while Limbaugh complained that the media "doesn’t seem to have much interest in what motivated" her, the 36-year-old's motive may prove hard to explain, the New York Daily News finds. She is the same woman who disrupted a court hearing for Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes in 2012, claiming she had vital information for his defense. She later filed a lawsuit seeking a restraining order to "stop Holmes from entering my mind through subliminal messaging and causing me to be obsessed with him on a daily basis."
