What do these things have in common? They are all prime examples of politicians inventing their own memories for political gain.
The Drudge report links to a YouTube clip from a CBS report unraveling Hillary’s claim that she was essentially a one-woman combat battalion landing in Bosnia. My only complaint with the piece is that CBS comes out singing na-na nana naaa. Anything that buoys the shamed CBS news team is not a good thing.
This isn’t the first time. You might recall Hillary down under in the 90s claiming that she was named after famed explorer Edmund Hillary who climbed Mt. Everest. Problem is, Hillary was a nobody until he accomplished that feat in 1953, quite a few years after Mrs. Clinton was born.
If I recall, Hillary’s fellow New Yorker, Senator Schumer, had another moment like this, conjuring up in his mind the angst he felt watching the congressional mob hearings via boob tube as a child. Problem is the boob Schumer was watching at that point was his mom’s… (forgive the crassness)… he was 8 weeks old.
There’s something in the water up there…
