The final meltdown: Billy Jeff loses it over Vanity Fairís article
Hot Air ^ | 6-02-08 | Allahpundit

Posted on 06/03/2008 4:37:30 AM PDT by Renfield

“There seems to be an abiding anger in him,” one of his senior aides told Todd Purdum. Good lord, does there ever. Not to begrudge the man a little righteous outrage at being the target of a hit piece, but the detail here about him refusing to let go of Mayhill Fowler’s hand is the creepy final act to a campaign performance that passed “bizarre” a long time ago. He’s like Orson Welles here tearing apart the bedroom at the end of Citizen Kane in frustration that no one’s left to admire his greatness.

Which isn’t to suggest that what he has to say is untrue.

(Poster's Note: I cackled long and hard while reading the following quote.)

Tightly gripping this reporter’s hand and refusing to let go, Clinton heatedly denounced the writer, who is currently married to former Clinton White House Press Secretary, Dee Dee Myers.

“[He’s] sleazy,” he said referring to Purdum. “He’s a really dishonest reporter. And one of our guys talked to him . . . And I haven’t read [the article]. There’s just five or six blatant lies in there. But he’s a real slimy guy,” the former President said.

When I reminded him that Purdum was married to his former press spokesperson Myers, Clinton was undeterred. “That’s all right– he’s still a scumbag,”

Clinton said… “You know he didn’t use a single name, cite a single source in all those things he said.. It’s just slimy. It’s part of the national media’s attempt to nail Hillary for Obama. It’s the most biased press coverage in history. It’s another way of helping Obama. They had all these people standing up in this church cheering, calling Hillary a white racist, and he didn’t do anything about it. The first day he said ‘Ah, ah, ah well.’ Because that’s what they do– he gets other people to slime her. So then they saw the movie they thought this is a great ad for John McCain–maybe I better quit the church. It’s all politics. It’s all about the bias of the media for Obama. Don’t think anything about it.”

“But I’m telling ya, all it’s doing is driving her supporters further and further away– because they know exactly what it is– this has been the most rigged coverage in modern history– and the guy ought to be ashamed of himself. But he has no shame. It isn’t the first dishonest piece he’s written about me or her.”

I don’t think Pfleger went off on Hillary at Obama’s behest but some of his other cronies surely have. The audio’s coming, supposedly; I’ll update when it’s available. Exit question: Man, Mayhill Fowler sure has a knack for being in the right place at the right time, huh?

All this is true but he was on the receiving end of this kind of help from the media against both Bush and Dole.

Bill Clinton saying someone “has no shame”??? That’s funny.
I agree, this is the most entertaining (but annoying) political season.

The Clintons will never sue anybody, ever. For one simple reason: discovery.

Hey Bubba?

What goes around, comes around, and it looks good on you.

And when it comes to scumbags, you’re the standard, even your damn Monica-marinaded cigar had more class than you do.

Now get lost, you’re yesterday’s news.

How does it feel to be treated like a Republican Bill?

No, Bill, I can think of at least one other period that was worse. Of course, you were the beneficiary, so you may not have cared.

You have to admit his points are valid. All unnamed sources, Obama didn’t immediately denounce Pfleager’s attack on Hillary, and the MSM has been anti-Hillary since at least Super Tuesday in March.

That said, Rush thinks Pfleager was the latest useful idiot employed by the Obama campaign to give Obama white man cover to quit Trinity church. Using Vanity Fair to remind super delegates about Bill’s moral baggage is the kind of tactic a Soros-backed campaign would use.

Yup, and with those two discovery usually takes place in some spot like Fort Marcie park.

True Story....

Bill Clinton was caught by a reporter in Africa with a cigar in his mouth....

He looked at the reporter and said....

“I don’t smoke them, I only suck on them.”

If we had only known then what he he was really saying....

If this were some sort of remake of ‘der Bunker’, Emperor Billigula would indeed put the revolver in his mouth and pull the trigger after one final tirade, but Hiliarly would not meekly go into eternity like Eva Braun, oh no, she would do to everyone what Frau Goebbels did to her children:

Destroy them all.

And I predict she will, in a political sense of course.

"Clinton heatedly denounced the writer, who is currently married to former Clinton White House Press Secretary, Dee Dee Myers."

Currently? Probably true, but it seems odd that the writer would identify someone in that context in an actual article. Sign of the times I guess...

It seems that Soros is the brawn ($$$) behind the Obamassein campaign, but who is the brains that is running this show? Who are his speech writers and handlers? Anyone know?

Rush’s theory bears looking at: that in fact Pleger WAS an Obama campaign plant to allow O to back out of an affiliation with his church-—to disown the “white man,” so that he wouldn’t have to look like he was disowning the brother!

Indeed. Unfortunately, like a bloody car wreck at Indy, this entertainment does not have a happy ending no matter what happens.

I noticed that, too.

I suspect that item was included to make the point that the author was NOT married to Myers when she was working in the White House back in the 1990s.
