Blowing off the vastly overblown if not entirely unwarranted media interest in her laugh, Hillary Clinton ended a brief and platitude-filled endorsement-acceptance appearance before the American Federation of Teachers today by saying, "I don't want to go on too much longer because it might cause me to laugh, and then heaven knows what we'd be hearing about for the next week or two. You've gotta have a sense of humor in this business."
