No Beer for Hillary?

Did the  Washington Post break a rule of web publishing by taking down, without explanation, a video of Dana Milbank and Chris Cillizza in which Milbank suggested "Mad Bitch" beer as a good choice for Hillary? The link looks like it's dead . Here too .

And larger question: Why is it always Hillary who comes in for these dumb bad jokes? Never mind that she is a calm and professional secretary of state. Never mind that I can't remember the last time she did something mad or bitchy. She's still fodder. Does she ever get to have a second act?
