Hillary Clinton Approves of Pelosi's Ill-advised Remarks

You know, I was going to comment on Pelosi's appalling quote earlier, but now I'm glad I waited. How often does one get the chance to kill two ditzes with one stone:

U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton said Sunday that House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi was right to say that President Bush "has on his shoulders the death of many more [U.S.] troops" because of his military misjudgments, explaining, "I know a little bit about" being commander in chief.

Tell us about it Hillary... how was it when you were wearing the pants in the White House?

Clinton also seconded Pelosi's charge that Bush was incompetent, defending her own comments to NBC last week that the president had demonstrated "a pattern and practice of misjudgments that add up to incompetence and lack of credibility."

Someone call Asshats Anonymous... Did it ever occur to either one of these twits that it's really not a great idea to call the President "incompetent" while we're engaged in a war? Did they stop to think for just one second of the propaganda value of their statements to the other side? Perhaps it might occur to them that morale might be affected?

Sen. Clinton said that U.S. troop cutbacks had left the U.S. unable to deal simultaneously with the Iraq war and its global defense commitments.

First of all this is ludicrous, but even if it were true, is it the kind of thing we would want to advertise? "Pssst....hey... if you're thinking of launching an attack on the US or its allies abroad, now would be a really great time because we like...totally can't respond." Thanks, Senator Clinton - did you learn this tactic during your time as Commander-In-Chief? Perhaps during those CIA briefings your husband couldn't be bothered to attend - on Dick Clarke's advice?

Sen. Clinton painted a grim picture of U.S. prospects in Iraq, saying: "We have lot of trouble - everybody knows that. My hope is that we can work our way out of the trouble we're in."

Gee whiz, Hils... thanks so much for the pep talk. I feel so much better now.

With Senators like this, who needs enemies?

Thanks to Purple Raider for the link.

There's a certain creepy solace to be found when absolutely everything you've always suspected about a person is validated by that same person.

"We have lot of trouble - everybody knows that. My hope is that we can work our way out of the trouble we're in."

Oh, yes, Senator. I share that hope. Only my methods of "work[ing] our way out of the trouble we're in differs slightly, insofar as it calls for the immediate massive and unrestrained clue-bombing of partisan media whores such as yourself as "Sista" Pelosi.

Disgusted is too tame a word.

spd, I was thinking firing squad myself.

You know, I always suspected that Hillary made spd hot, but I had no idea...

"unrestrained clue-bombing of partisan media whores?"

Asshats. I get so sick and freakin' tired of asshats I could just stink.

Pile On just said that because he likes to use that word...twice. :)

Both of these women are serious wastes of space. Makes you wonder how we came to this point, doesn't it?

In some ways I wish Kerry would choose Queen Hillary for his running mate. I'd love to see Dick Cheney rip her a new one in a debate. She really is a lousy public speaker (you know, like, uh, you know), and though she can dance around a subject, Cheney takes no prisoners. He would also not be afraid of making her look like the damsel tied to the railroad tracks - he'd treat her like the man she is.

I love watching Cheney go to work on someone. He just sort of watches them and waits for an opening - like he's got all day.

I only used it once. Stink stink stink. There, that makes up for it.

Remember what happened when Rick Lazio debated Hillary? He tried to get her to sign some lame idea of a contract, and the media was all like, he got in her face, he's a meany butt, you can't do that to a woman. And I was all like, Hillary is a woman?

Posted by: Pile On® at May 25, 2004 10:46:31 PM

Yeah, Pile On, and he like walked across the stage and you know flung the contract in her face, and all invaded her space, you know? And she sorta stood there and stammered and stuttered and everyone felt all sorry for her. And then when algore was debating Dubya later and he was all wearing that Cardassian-shouldered suit to make him look big and scary, and he like galloped across the stage and invaded Dubya's space, well I like would have flinched or backed up, and that's you know what algore was all expecting, and Dubya just looked at him like "what's your problem - overshoot your chair?" And I think that's when I realized algore was off his meds and was like too dangerous to even elect.

I don't think they've created the meds that would help Big Al out.

And if they do, I definitely want some.

It was easy for Hillary to wear the pants since bill never had any on.

Your husband appointed that snake oil salesman Shinseki who 'transformed' the Army because he was a chogie boy and said go ahead cut it to the bone and I will transform it. Then did a John Kerry and started butting heads with Rumsfeld about needing more troops in Iraq.

Let me continue, Senator Clinton. Your husband has many deaths on his shoulders not only because of Kosovo, but lest we forget Mogadishu, Somalia and well, the body acount around him and you. Vince Foster ring a bell?

Who the helk are you to talk about irresponsibility in leadership when your husband raped and beat a woman?

Your vituperative, ill informed and disgusting remarks will drive people to the Republican Party in droves.

Your husband, madam senator, didn't allow the military to speak ill of him and PROSECUTED those who did. The UCMJ isn't something I am fond of, but in no instance have I heard of a member of the military being hunted down, or
had his career taken away because they used their First Amendment Rights.

Sorry Cass. People have short memories and I have rarely hated anyone in office as much as I have detested the Clinton regime.

You know how many soldiers we had to bribe to play with you? And how many dissed you because of YOU, you HUSBAND and YOUR WHOLE contemptible attitude toward the military?

Read the blogs.

In this election year there's sure been alot of talk about WWHD? (What will Hitlery do?) Will this make headline news? (hmmmm??...is that Vince Foster in that picture?.....)

Algore gave a long ranting speech for MoveOn Pac today, and it evidently was a rip-snorter, because the link from Drudge is always busy. But I digress. Brit Hume played a bit of it, and Charles Krauthammer et al were asked to comment.

Dr. Krauthammer, Psychiatrist, said "Well, Al Gore has gone off the lithium again" - I nearly died. I consider that a medical opinion!
