The Lies About Hillary

I have been listening to an interview with Ed Klein about his new book The Truth About Hillary. When Peggy Noonan wrote, "The book is poorly written, poorly thought, poorly sourced and full of the kind of loaded language that is appropriate to a polemic but not an investigative work," I thought Noonan was just trying to strategically distance the GOP and soften the criticism that the only thing Republicans can do is smear people. But after listening to the interview, I think Peggy was just stating a fact. The guy is a moron. He had to admit that he physically describe people that he never met, and quoted people who don't exist. He also had to admit to numerous other falsehoods.

So, even if you are a die hard anti-Hilliaryite, don't waste your time with the book. It is actually possible that you might even get more "truth" by reading something by Ann Coulter (if I am saying that, you know it must be bad).

How very odd. This guy was the editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine for 11 years. During his editorship, the magazine won the Pulitzer prize for the first time. He was contributing editor of Vanity Fair and won accolades for his articles on Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and on Aristotle Onassis's granddaughter, Athina Onassis Roussel. He wrote a number of cover stories for Parade on such important figures as Jesse Jackson, Barbara Bush, and former President Ronald Reagan. But he puts out something negative about Queen Hillary and suddenly he's a lying, partisan hack. How the worm turns.

Well, Ranger, I seem to remember the worm turning for the author of a certain newsweek article, also.
