ANN COULTER: HILLARY: SWIFTBOATED! (Hiliary Under Fire!)

HILLARY: SWIFTBOATED!
March 26, 2008

Hillary is being "swiftboated"!

She claimed that she came under sniper fire when she visited in Bosnia in 1996, but was contradicted by videotape showing her sauntering off the plane and stopping on the tarmac to listen to a little girl read her a poem.

Similarly, John Kerry's claim to heroism in Vietnam was contradicted by 264 Swift Boat Veterans who served with him. His claim to having been on a secret mission to Cambodia for President Nixon on Christmas 1968 was contradicted not only by all of his commanders -- who said he would have been court-martialed if he had gone anywhere near Cambodia -- but also the simple fact that Nixon wasn't president on Christmas 1968.

In Hillary's defense, she probably deserves a Purple Heart about as much as Kerry did for his service in Vietnam.

Also, unlike Kerry, Hillary acknowledged her error, telling the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: "I was sleep-deprived, and I misspoke." (What if she's sleep-deprived when she gets that call on the red phone at 3 a.m., imagines a Russian nuclear attack and responds with mutual assured destruction? Oops. "It proves I'm human.")

The reason no one claims Hillary is being "swiftboated" is that the definition of "swiftboating" is: "producing irrefutable evidence that a Democrat is lying." And for purposes of her race against matinee idol B. Hussein Obama, Hillary has become the media's honorary Republican.

In liberal-speak, only a Democrat can be swiftboated. Democrats are "swiftboated"; Republicans are "guilty." So as an honorary Republican, Hillary isn't being swiftboated; she's just lying.

Indeed, instead of attacking the people who produced a video of Hillary's uneventful landing in Bosnia, the mainstream media are the people who discovered that video.

I've always wondered how a Democrat would fare being treated like a Republican by the media. Now we know.

It's such fun watching liberals turn on the Clintons! The bitter infighting among Democrats is especially enjoyable after having to listen to Democrats hyperventilate for months about how delighted they were to have so many wonderful choices for president.

Now liberals just want to be rid of the Clintons -- which is as close to actual mainstream thinking as they've been in years. So the media suddenly notice when Hillary "misspeaks," while rushing to make absurd excuses for much greater outrages by her opponent.

Liberals are even using the Slick Willy defense when Obama is caught fraternizing with a racist loon. When Bill Clinton was exposed as a philandering, adulterous, pathological liar, his defenders said that everybody is a philandering, adulterous, pathological liar.

And now, when B. Hussein Obama is caught in a 20-year relationship with a raving racist, his defenders scream that everybody is a racist wack-job.

In the Obama speech on race that Chris Matthews deemed "worthy of Abraham Lincoln," B. Hussein Obama defended Wright's anti-American statements, saying:

"For the men and women of Rev. Wright's generation, the memories of humiliation and doubt and fear have not gone away; nor has the anger and the bitterness of those years. That anger may not get expressed in public, in front of white co-workers or white friends. But it does find voice in the barbershop or around the kitchen table."

So in the speech the media are telling us is on a par with the Gettysburg Address, B. Hussein Obama casually informed us that even blacks who seem to like white people actually hate our guts.

First of all: Watch out the next time you get your hair cut by a black barber over the age of 50.

Second, Rev. Wright's world wasn't segregated.

And third, what about Wright's wanton anti-Semitism? All the liberals (including essence-besplattered Chris Matthews) have accepted Obama's defense of Wright and want us to understand Wright's "legitimate" rage over his painful youth in segregated America.

But the anti-Semitic tone of Wright's sermons is as clear as his rage against the United States. Rev. Wright calls Israel a "dirty word" and a "racist country." He denounces Zionism and calls for divestment from Israel.

Swiftboating:

Telling the truth about a politician and exposing their lies.

Liberal definition: They are being mean to me!

Ann's definition is better than mine for Swiftboating:

Ya know, who here thinks that if ANY of what Hillary claimed actually happened, she wouldn’t have just put herself in for an Expert Infantryman’s Badge and an Air Assault Badge with a Gold Star IMMEDIATELY upon her return to D.C. AND which she would have worn proudly on every pantsuit ever after for her service to her country while under enemy fire???

Great stuff as ususal - but I thought she promised to campaign for Hillary because of McPain?

Don't get me wrong - I can't stand Juan McPain either, but Hillary is a delusional feminist liar. In this corner, we have Obama the seething racist.

Can anyone explain to me how we got here? These three are the best this nation can offer?

I just looked at the board of directors of one company (L3).

What an impressive bunch! PhDs, scientists, economists, MBAs, engineers, retired military officers........why can't these folks have a stab at leading our nation!

Why is the most honorable Rev. Wright suddenly “retired”, “on vaction”, “not accepting requests for interviews” and canceling engagements to preach at other churches?

Translation: Coulter, rightly so, does not want Obama as Commander-in-Chief/President.

She’s preferring it to come down to McCain vs. Hillary in the general.

Second, Rev. Wright's world wasn't segregated.

Not only was Wright's world not segregated, but he grew up in comfortable circumstances, on a tree-lined street in a prosperous section of town; and he attended an integrated (mostly white) elite high school.

OBAMA'S PASTOR RAISED IN PRIVILEGE, NOT POVERTY

Wonder if Ann is aware of this article? It's posted on Martin Peretz's blog (scroll down a bit on page at link).

PS: The Dems invented the term ‘swiftboating’ not only to cover Kerry’s sorry, splintered butt ... they also meant to push their word ‘Bork’ out of the media.

I have been troubled about that myself, for quite some time. Maybe because the president of any mid-sized company already makes more than the POTUS? And this corporate president may have to adrress shareholders, but he does not have to have press conferences with Helen Thomas.P>I just do not think the POTUS is a very good job any more, and we have not attracted top talent for a long time.

The really good talent is in decently-paid, low stress professions more highly respected than Politics.

Pumping septic tanks, for example.

Um - Ann does not seem to be expressing unconditional support of She Who Cackles. And Ann seems not overly fascinated by Barack Mohammed (since we are no longer to refer to his given middle name) Obama, Jr., the charismatic, messianic Magic Negro, either.

Ann does paint with a large brush. Perhaps that is because the targets are so, well, large. And make themselves so easy.

No one wants to be President because of the salary: it’s the perqs (e.g. your own personal 747 and a fleet of helos at your disposal), the prestige, and the power. The money comes once a President leaves office. Ex-42, the impeached Bill Clinton, has earned tens of millions in speaking fees alone since leaving office in 2000.

From the link:

Three months ago, I was sitting with a half-dozen smart, successful conservatives whose names you know, all griping about this year's cast of presidential candidates. I asked them, one by one: Why don't you run for office?

Of course, none of them would. They are happy, well-adjusted individuals.
