It's No Secret That A Liar Won't Believe In Anyone Else

It's no secret that world
Is in darkness tonight
The universe exploded
Cause of one man's lie

After several days of Ferraro screaching about Obama being "lucky to be a black man", Clinton finally says what she should have all along: I'm sorry. Except, it didn't quite come out the way it should:
Her biggest apology came in response to a question about comments by her husband, Bill Clinton, after the South Carolina primary, which Obama won handily. Bill Clinton said Jesse Jackson also won South Carolina when he ran for president in 1984 and 1988, a comment many viewed as belittling Obama's success.

"I want to put that in context. You know I am sorry if anyone was offended. It was certainly not meant in any way to be offensive," Hillary Clinton said. "We can be proud of both Jesse Jackson and Senator Obama."

The reason people were so upset originally was because she was equating a black national figure (Jackson) with Obama who is clearly not just a "black candidate". Of course she just happened to again speak their completely unrelated names in the same breath. Again. And as equals. In her apology.

Hilary isn't a monster, and she isn't the devil...but as one person pointed out, she wouldn't be out of place at a dinner party for that threesome.

My hero, Camille Paglia, says it in words that I could never utter:
Hillary, her shrill voice much improved and lowered through brutal overstrain, has certainly gained confidence and performance skill on the campaign trail, but I still don't trust her. The arrogant, self-absorbed Clintons have shown their unscrupulous hand to all who have eyes to see. Yes, Hillary may know the labyrinthine flow chart of the Washington bureaucracy, but her peripheral experiences as a gallivanting first lady scarcely qualify her to be commander in chief. On the contrary, her constant resort to schmaltzy videos and cheap entertainment riffs ("The Sopranos," "Saturday Night Live") has been depressingly unpresidential. Is this how she would govern? All that canned "softening" of Hillary's image would have been unnecessary had she had greater personal resources to begin with. Her cutesy campaign has set a bad precedent for future women candidates, who should stand on their own as proponents of public policy.
