'Doh! I forgot about the video!' says Hillary

Axiom #283: If you're going to lie about your experience, at least make sure there's no video proof of the truth.

"Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her staff said she misspoke when saying she landed under sniper fire during a March 1996 trip to Bosnia as first lady. "I did make a mistake in talking about it the last time, and recently,'' Clinton told reporters in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. "I made a mistake. I have a different memory. That happens. I'm human. For some people that's a revelation."

Well...she made four mistakes. She "misspoke" 4 times. And let's call it what it is: a lie. And she is all too human, because she forgot about the CBS video, and that is the revelation, because she is usually very careful about remembering which lie she told at which time.

Clinton said, "I say a lot of things -- millions of words a day -- so if I misspoke, that was just a misstatement.''

Just? more four more Clinton years. Please.

Vote Ron Paul.

Vote Ron Paul?
He hasn't dropped out of the race however he cannot run as a Republican because he didn't capture enough support. He has said he would not run as an independent but let's say he does. I am pretty confident he has already missed out on collecting enough signatures in most states to be on the ballot as an independent. I may be wrong, however.

of course you know way more than I do about Republican ins and outs, but I believe RP is on the ballot in all states, and I thought that if he made it to the convention and then if there was a miracle of delegates that sided for him...

Anyway, I think the drumbeat is getting louder for RP and at least as long as he is still plugging, the forum of real ideas is being debated

You have to get a certain number of delegates to be the R candidate or the D candidate. RP had 22 last I checked. McCain has 1290 or something like that.

BTW- Hillary's misspeaking was actually a stolen event. Washington Post reported that it was really Maine's senior senator who was in Bosnia during sniper fire, not Hillary.

the CBS video showed Hillary saying it, though...I don't geddit.

Ron Paul, 22 vs 1290. It's only a matter of ten exponential. A deficit anyone can overcome! Easy!
