Huma Abedin — Mrs. Anthony Weiner — in Afghanistan

Seven months pregnant and in Kabul with Hillary Clinton:

Everyone had to find out somehow — even the Secretary of State.

During a series of interviews in Kabul, Afghanistan, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got a message on her Blackberry of what she called an unconfirmed report of Muammar Gaddafi’s capture.

The video shows Clinton flanked by several aides, including a very pregnant Huma Abedin (the wife of disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner).

I like my women barefoot, pregnant, and helping to fight terrorists in Central Asia.

And if she’s barefoot because her feet have swelled, I used to make ice packs for my wife by combining one cup of rubbing alcohol with three cups of water and freezing them inside a Ziplock bag. They turn into a slush that’s the perfect size for a foot. But, I’m sure that Anthony Weiner, concerned husband that he is, has that covered.
