The Penraker Dialogues
In one of today's postings entitled "The Clinton Fisking Begins," Mr. Penraker decides that facts can completely debunk Clinton's claims during his Wallace interview. Penraker effectively calls Clinton a liar.
And he backs it up.
For example, how to disprove Clinton's claims that he'd "Nothing but GOP support for getting bin Laden?"
Easy. A couple of quick LexisNexis searches'll clear the GOP's name and expose this lie.
What else? Oh, how about a CNN report from 1998. And a quote from Trent Lott.
And let's not forget our allies at realclearpolitics.com.
Now, this is not to say that I disagree with Penraker or the former President. But I think it's a small effort that didn't go nearly as far as it should have. There should be a gigantic textbook about how everything Clinton said during that portion of the interview was pure bogus. This is not to mention Drudge's clip noting Clinton's slurring and touching of Wallace. He may be right about the weirdness of it all, but at the same time I think we should all take a step back and start ignoring the Clintons. It's about time we did. Of the ex-Presidents alive today, who's sticking their faces into public view the most? Not Ford, not Reagan, not Bush, but Clinton and Carter. Uh, yeah, the Democrats. Not to be prissy, but, am I detecting something here?
Update: I just noticed Penraker's post about Zahn's intro, namely her intro stating "Here is how he responded when he was grilled about his attempts to get Bin Laden."
Did she, like, ever see the interview?
Yeah, because if you didn't notice, it was Clinton who was doing the drilling.
