It is murder.
Now that Hillary Clinton has swept all Democratic caucuses and primaries, crushed all opposition and her candidacy is all but assured, it's time for the GOP to dust off their 1994 edition of "Textbook of Ballistics and Punditry, Chapter 7, The Clintons, Part 4, Technological and Ideological Constraints" and get back to doing exactly what they were doing in the 90s...and what they have been doing on horsey doses of Winstrol and Deca-Durabolin since January 20, 2009.
And so, ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, Kathleen Willey!
Wrong film canister.
Ladies and gentlemen...Kathleen Willey!
Honestly, I would love the opportunity to actually, for-real publicly litigate the 1990s -- all of it -- in a giant game of Compare and Contrast and Political Tetanus Vaccination in which drain the still-gangrenous wounds of the 1990s by match every act of bullshit conspiracy mongering over which Republicans raved themselves stupid shouting "Traitor!" and "Impeach!" during 1990s (via Wonkette) --
As Media Matters details, Willey is not exactly the most credible source in the world. Her biggest claim to fame is that she accused Bill Clinton of groping her in 1993 — a charge that was investigated by Independent Counsel Robert Ray and found not to be credible. And if it was the only thing she ever accused Clinton of, that by itself seems at least completely probable. But we’d be a lot more inclined to be sympathetic if Willey hadn’t piled on all the other weirdness that came later.
Among other things, Willey is pretty sure that the Clintons had her husband murdered in 1993, exactly like they murdered Vince Foster...
...against every act of actual criminal incompetence, corruption, fiscal ruination and outright treason which Republicans wholeheartedly supported and defended as unalloyed patriotism during the Bush Administration.
Then, once the 90s has been properly exorcised and buried, we can play another round in which we Compare and Contrast the language of the "How Dare You Question A President During Wartime You Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkey Traitor!" Republicans under Bush with the "Impeach The Kenyan Usurper Because...Freedumb!" language of those exact same Republicans (now sporting jaunty hats and calling themselves Tea Party Patriots and swearing they've never even heard of George Bush) starting January 20, 2009.
I'd fucking love for that to happen, but it won't.
Instead we'll get leftovers. Again. Retreads of the same old lies slung by the same old grifters abetted by the same old "Both Sider" douchbags. Again. And this will go on and on until We The People make the grifters and frauds and bigots and imbeciles fear for their professional lives every time they open their mouths to lie to us again.
