Truth to Power

Vetting Bill Clinton should take about 30 seconds

Bill Clinton Sends Donor List to Obama to Help Hillary’s Bid

Nov. 20 (Bloomberg) – Bill Clinton has sent President- elect Barack Obama’s transition team a list of more than 200,000 donors to his foundation, according to a Democrat familiar with the process, the latest sign both sides are trying to clear obstacles to Hillary Clinton’s possible nomination as U.S. secretary of state.

Vetting Bill Clinton is easy:

Kosovo

Iraq sanctions

Mogadishu

See, that wasn’t hard. No one named Clinton should be allowed ANYWHERE near our government again. Bill Clinton and the sanctions against Iraq, which lead to the deaths of most likely a million Iraqi children, makes him as big a butcher as Bush could ever hope to be- and the only reason he’s given a pass on his genocide by the left is because he wasn’t an arrogant dickhead about it, unlike Bush. But make no mistake, my blind in one eye obese pug who sleeps 23.5 hours a day would make a better Secretary of State than Hillary Clinton. A lot fewer people would die, at least.

But if Obama ends up picking Hillary, he embraces all that is wrong with our foreign policy, and makes him no better- or really, any different- than the monsters who preceded him.

Now this guy would be a dandy pick.
