Hillary tells a whopper
Far be it from me to put down a democrat but I feel that what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Hillary decided to try to capitalize on her visit to one of the world’s many hot spots by telling a blatant lie in an attempt to appear brave and tough. The evidence of the lie was filmed for all the world to see. How dumb can you get?
Then today she tried to minimize the damage by saying she “misspoke” and her campaign staff scrambled to cover for her. You’ve all heard the distasteful details.
Frankly, I find her behavior disgusting and inexcusable. We have brave, tough troops under fire every day. For her to lie to try to be like one of them is just as perverse as Rudy and his lie about time spent at ground zero.
I don’t think she can or will put this episode behind her. If she became the candidate, McCain’s people would pound her with it daily. She needs to get out now and throw all of her support behind Obama. To do anything else, to act as if she did nothing seriously wrong will just humiliate her and the party further.
