Hillary Tells NRA Member: I Used to Be a Duck Hunter
Newsmax.com ^ | June 2, 2002 | Carl Limbacher

Posted on 06/02/2002 8:25:53 PM PDT by Paul Atreides

In a surprise revelation during a Memorial Day campaign swing through upstate New York, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton announced that she used to be a duck hunter.

The bizarre claim went unreported till Sunday, when Long Island's Newsday detailed a Clinton reception in the tiny village of Fort Ann, N.Y.

Resident Holden Clous, a National Rifle Association member, asked what the paper described as "a rather hostile question" about why Mrs. Clinton favored tightening laws governing gun show sales.

"He wasn't satisfied when she said it was a logical safety measure to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, but he seemed surprised when she said she had once hunted," the paper said.

Newsday then added, "It was ducks and a long time ago, she amplified later."

Clinton apparently declined to give further details on her days as a game fowl hunter, including who she hunted with, what kind of rifle she used and how many ducks she killed.

The New York senator's long-secret hunting days conjured up memories of other unlikely assertions she's offered over the years, such as:

The claim that she once tried to enlist in the Army but was turned down because she was too old.

Her 2000 senatorial campaign metamorphosis into a Jewish New York Yankees fan.

Her 1996 announcement that at age 49, she and President Clinton were thinking of having another baby (together).

The assertion that her parents named her after famed British mountain climber Sir Edmund Hillary, even though he was a complete unknown at the time who wouldn't scale Mt. Everest until five years after she was born.

During a series of small-town gatherings, Clinton told the rural crowds that she much preferred meeting with them to television appearances on shows like "Meet the Press."

"It's the nuts-and-bolts stuff of being a senator, as opposed to being on TV, talking about stuff, which I could do every night if I wanted to," the superstar senator explained.

Her newfound affinity for rural constituents stands in marked contrast to her days in Arkansas, where she used to dismiss such encounters with four-letter epithets.

The New York senator's former business partner, Susan McDougal, described one such encounter in 1996 for "Blood Sport" author James Stewart.

As McDougal looked on during a political reception, an Arkansas woman approached Mrs. Clinton with the gift of a pair of "razorback earrings" in the shape of hogs. She asked Hillary to put them on, but the then-Arkansas first lady icily demurred.

After the gift giver moved away, Clinton blurted out to McDougal, "See, this is the kind of s--t I have to put up with here."

Of course, she'll announce to a black audience, "I used to be black..."

Unfortunately, the bulk of the lemmings (having been duly coached by the warlords) will believe her and cheer -- and why not? Her husband was the "first black president..."

Is she thinking of one of those "knock-the-ducks-over" games at the State Fair? Probably not, I can't see her as a State Fair attendee either.

At least she is staying true to form.

.30-06 is good for down here in the South, but for them Canadian geese, you might want to go with a little more oomph, like, say a .458 Winchester.

Well, I was at the MCRGO annual meeting with Wayne LaPierre and Kayne Robinson, and they mentioned that the term "Duck Hunting" was never mentioned in the 2nd Amendment anyway.

BTW - I wonder if she used a rifle like Bill did...........

Duck Hunter?

She will clarify this later and say she was referring to the "Duck Hunt" video game on the original Nintendo machines in the mid-80s.

Or maybe she means: "Whenever my husband or I have run for political office, we always make sure to duck hunters."

The NRA member should have started just throwing out riflecalibers until she bit; 270 -- no; 30-30 -- no; 7 millimeter --no; .30-'06 -- yes, that's it!

Catch her in the lie big time (for all you non-hunters, Annie Oakley wouldn't hunt ducks with a rifle - shotguns are used for hunting waterfowl). Unless of course she had a Browning light machine gun or possibly a BAR.

Yeah, right.

Did somebody step on a duck?

The only duck Hillary ever shot was the one out her butt.

OF COURSE she went duck hunting!
It was at an Arkansas State Fair.

The ducks were small steel targets with bullseyes painted on their sides. Three shots for 25 cents.

Everyone wins a prize of course! She took the stuffed snake called Willie.

Obviously she didn't take the "booby" prize....

Or "duck" could be code for Bubba himself. According to the old rumor, Bubba had to "duck" a lamp hurled by Hillary.

Shooting ducks with a rifle? Maybe Annie Oakley could get away with that and not starve to death.

She might have hunted "duck" (although I doubt it), but it's a good bet that she's never hunted for "d*ck" (notwithstanding toys used by her communist lesbian comrades).

Actually, I believe her. No, I don't think she has done it since she was under 14, but it sounds reasonable to me. Little daughter wants to bond with dad, goes on duck hunting trip. Then she becomes a radical feminist later.

You all think Hillary was reading the feminist mystique at age 7?

She said she used to be a duck hunter. I think maybe an 'i' was replaced with a 'u'. Vince Foster may have been the last "duck" she hunted.
