Hillary Clinton and the Comments of Doom

Oh Senator Hillary Clinton, would you please, please, please, please, please stop talking! When the Sioux Falls Argus Leader asked her why she's still campaigning, she mused, "My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California." Hinting, in other words, that, you know, that Sen. Barack Obama, who's young and beloved and Kennedy-y, might get straight-up murdered in the coming weeks. Today she's apologizing for that, but now everyone's pointing out that she's been peddling that scenario for months!

Dayum, Hillary, Can't You Quit Lying?

Senator Hillary Clinton has been telling a heart-wrenching yarn of late about an uninsured woman who died, and lost her baby, when an Ohio hospital refused to treat her because she couldn't afford to pay a $100 fee. But... Oops! "The woman, Trina Bachtel, did die last August, two weeks after her baby boy was stillborn at O'Bleness Memorial Hospital in Athens, Ohio. But hospital administrators said Friday that Ms. Bachtel was under the care of an obstetrics practice affiliated with the hospital, that she was never refused treatment and that she was, in fact, insured." Video, after the jump.

Old Timey conservative columnist, MSNBC contributor, and long-standing "The McLaughlin Group" shrieker Patrick Buchanan wants Senator Barack Obama's former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, to "go down on his knees and thank God he is an American." The essay, posted on Buchanan's blog yesterday and entitled "A Brief for Whitey" offers many an insight into the history of black Americans in America.
