TOPICS: Activism/Chapters; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: blumenthal; clinton; conspiracies; freep; hillary; sidblumenthal; sidvicious; vrwc; wp
Other topics of the book per the Post blurb are impeachment, mean Ken Starr, Bush ascending to the presidency by suppression of the black vote in FloriDUH, and Bush's team ignoring national security concerns. (OK, watch your blood pressure there.)

Go to the above web site and you may submit questions RIGHT NOW and until 11:00 Eastern time Tuesday, June 10.

Considering that the Post chooses what questions to submit to Blumenthal, FReepers should be succinct and polite IF they want their questions put to Blumenthal.

First question...

Do you think the dress Hillary wore made her butt look big?

From NRO:

IT DEPENDS ON WHAT YOUR DEFINITON OF BANTERING IS [Kathryn Jean Lopez] Sidney Blumenthal was just on FNC saying there is no discrepancy in his and her accounts. Sure, he has them bantering in the background, in his book, but what was really going on is whatever Hillary wants you to believe...or something like that. Posted at 02:44 PM

BWAHAHAHAHA!

Most of us are confused by the Clinton's relationship. We know Hillary is strong and determined. Yet she reacted to his serial infidelities as if she were a weak little woman too fearful to toss the bum out.

Click on Just for the Hillary of it! for my take on what the real deal is between Hillary And Bill.

Sorry ... why submit questions which he will not answer or will lie about! That's a waste of time, and he's not worth it.

With all respect, I know that your question was an attempt at humor, but please consider elevating the level of discussion by avoiding questions and comments like that.

You're smarter and better than is indicated by that question.

Submitting questions is like calling into a talk radio show. The host controls the horizontal and the verticle and always has the last word.

IMHO your street presence last Friday was much more effective. But have at it, er him.

Thanks very much.

It was a privilege to have a shot at supporting the troops and whacking the Saddam enablers.

Probably more right on than anyone cares to admit.
Hillary married Bubba only for political reasons.
She wants power for herself as well.
Now, a lesbian alone, unmarried, and without children has absolutely NO chance at political power.
But, with Bill and a child at her side?

She had Chelsea only out of convenience.
Same with everything else they have done.
Socks the cat, Buddy the dog.
Things that were convenient to have for a time only to be tossed out like yesterdays bathwater later.
I fear that Hillary is far more of a shark than many give her credit for.
I believe she was the brains behind Bubba's presidency.
He has all the political savvy of a moist potato chip.
And has proven it time and time again.
Hillary is a manipulative narcissist, and whenever we saw something politically savvy or just plain manipulatively cruel come from the Whitehouse, it was Hillary's doing.

Mr. Blumenthal apparently plans to whine about suppression of the black vote in Florida in 2000. Does he have a leg to stand on on this issue?

Very astute observations. Seems to be a habit with you. :-)

Hillary comes out of the left-60's-feminists who see men as mostly stupid, but sometimes useful. He is incapable of breaking her heart. But he IS capable of securing her a seat at the tables she is most interested in.

By the time she met him, his future in American politics was pretty much assured, between his Hot Springs Mafia Uncle Buddy, his Rhodes association, his (and her) Communist connections, and then the tin foil relatives.

She knew all the odds were in her favor, her job was to provide him with enough cover stories to keep them both looking on the up-and-up.

You are correct, Bill. Drango should know that even Hillary has more than one dress amongst the pantsuits. Therefore, he should have asked which dresses made Hillary's butt look big. :-)

Not exactly. that was just her power hungry public persona.

Don't ever forget that Jerry Parks, Vince Foster's partner who was murdered shortly after Foster himself, was employed by hillary to collect dirt on her husband for her to use if she ever wanted to.

her bullsh#t statements about "he never lied to me" and she was "Shocked " at the Monica revelations are a crock of sh*t.

I have always seen the Clinton dynamic exactly as you see it. There is nothing remotely sexual between them, but they both appreciate what the partnership brings to each life.

I think you and I agree that there is no other explanation that accounts for their behavior. As Arthur Conan Doyle said as Sherlock Holmes, "When you have eliminated all other possibilities what remains must be true."

There were people that reported an argument between Bill and Hillary back when he was running for Congress... a race he lost by the way... Hilllary told Bill it was time for him to quit playing with his girl friends and get down to the business of getting elected. Note she was not angry that he had girl friends... She was angry that it took too much time from his efforts to get elected.

"Have you stopped beating your wife?"

Asking Blumenthal questions is an absurdity. He is committed to lying about the Clintons and their administration. His answers to all questions are already on record.
