A chilly night in Chappaqua

That is what Bill Clinton will likely find the next time he and Hillary are curled up by the fire in a writhing blur of fingernails and flying tufts of hair. His latest comments to catch the fickle winds of the media were made while giving a speech in Muscatine, Iowa on behalf of his wife’s bid for the Democratic nomination. I caught wind of it earlier today on Drudge (you know, that silly site that no one reads at least several times a day?) and there was a YouTube video of the speech linked that I watched and decided I would write about later. The video link has mysteriously disappeared from Drudge and despite my best searching efforts I can find no evidence of it on YouTube. The NYT ran a story on it as well. And Drudge? In absence of the earlier video link he has piled on with this piece a la the AP.

Seems Bill Clinton may be stretching the tether along with the truth with this “I was for the war before I was against it” moment. I don’t know if any of this will have legs, but I bet there is a new and smaller doghouse being built behind the old one somewhere in Chappaqua, NY. Call it a hunch.

  2. That “curled up by the fire” image is one of the best bits of writing ever at this blog.

    Muscatine, IA, btw, had one of the best high school forensics teams in the country in the late 80s, led by All-American and Informative Speaking national champion Mona Abo-Zena.

    Imagine what it must have been like to grow up Islamic with the name “Mona Abo-Zena” in Muscatine, Iowa. The mind reels.
