Superhero Hillary's Got Experience… (Update- She Lied)
The comedy continues…
Hillary talks about her “experience” with airplanes and rock stars today:
On Saturday night in Dubuque she pounced, arguing she risked her life on White House missions in the 1990s, including a hair-raising flight into Bosnia that ended in a “corkscrew” landing and a sprint off the tarmac to dodge snipers…
She was, in fact, leading a goodwill entourage that included baggy-pants funnyman Sinbad, singer Sheryl Crow and Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, then 15, according to an account of the March 1995 trip in her autobiography “Living History.”
As the plane approached the runway, the pilot ordered the Clintons into the armored front of the plane, Clinton writes.
What’s not clear is whether Sinbad or Crow were invited to the cockpit or had to brave it out in the unprotected rear.
Michelle Malkin has more on the superhero status of the former First Lady.
HotAir has Hillary’s New Year’s ad… politics as usual.
UPDATE: Bummer for Hillary that Al Gore invented the internet.
Captain’s Quarters has the goods on this Clinton lie.
Someone ought to introduce Obama and Edward’s staffers to Google some time.
UPDATE: (March 11, 2008)- Sinbad came clean and said today that the trip was not dangerous at all- that he never felt in danger, adding: “”What kind of president would say, ‘Hey, man, I can’t go ’cause I might get shot so I’m going to send my wife…oh, and take a guitar player and a comedian with you.'”
The MSM sure took its time following up on this Clinton lie.
