The Washington post is pimping a book written by the NewYork times reporter Jeff Gerth: author of a number of inaccurate and sloppy anti-clinton stories. Here is how the post put it:
“Her Way: The Hopes and Ambitions of Hillary Rodham Clinton,” by Jeff Gerth and Don Van Natta Jr., reports that during her husband’s 1992 campaign, a team she oversaw hired a private investigator to undermine Gennifer Flowers “until she is destroyed.” Flowers had said publicly that she had an affair with Bill Clinton while he was governor of Arkansas.
The book also suggests that Hillary Clinton did not read the National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq in 2002 before voting to authorize war. And it includes a thirdhand report that the Clintons had a secret plan after the 1992 election in which he would have eight years as president and then she would have eight years, although last night a key source disavowed the story.
And thus begins the swiftboating of Hillary. This is the first of many to come, which will inundate us throughout any Hillary campaign. Hillary the lover of Vince Foster! Hillary the killer of Vince Foster! Hillary the lesbian! Hillary the (fill in the blank). It may not be fair to Hillary, but this is one reason I don’t support her candidacy.
A democratic presidential ticket in 2008 with Hillary at the top of it will be a nightmare of frivolity and press-driven bullshit, all against her, as the media tells us how much fun that Fred Thompson is and what a calculating cold ambitious bitch he is trying to save us from.
