This item is not for fans of Sen. Hillary Clinton. You should click away.

Please.New York Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton prays for peace after her narrow escape from telling a Bosnian sniper whopper Just click here to go away.


Seriously. You'll be really sorry if you don't.

Are they gone?

All right. The Timothy McSweeney website is one of the most entertaining and eclectic around. If you like unpredictable -- and predictably we think the Ticket readers do -- that place is worth a regular visit.

Especially now.

Because Nick Ripatrazone there went out to the driveway this morning just to get the paper and snipers opened up on him. Sniper fire was everywhere. It was like Bosnia. He had no idea where it was coming from.

He had to run for his life to the parked car and then through the front door to safely reach his base. He remembers it as if it was today.

Despite enduring that furious fusillade, which qualified him to run on his experiences for first lady, he sat down to write in his blog. It's titled "Other Dangerous Historical Events Hillary Clinton Experienced as First Lady."

And this is what he wrote.
