Squaring the Culture

"...and I will make justice the plumb line, and righteousness the level;
then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,
and the waters will overflow the secret place."

Clinton Cronies At It Again

Back in January I wrote a piece about how Hillary Clinton’s campaign had been dropping racial slurs, but wrapping them in words about what Republicans are going to be saying about Obama in the fall, thereby putting the blame for their own racist attacks on Republicans. Remember?

Well, they’re at it again, and with a vengeance.

From Allahpundit at Hot Air:

But while we’re on the subject, why is a Hillary Clinton supporter trying to flack a rumor about Michelle Obama — and blaming it on the GOP? Larry Johnson over at No Quarter has written about a video showing Mrs. Obama at the pulpit at Trinity United Church of Christ “railing against “whitey.” Supposedly, the Republicans — including the bete noir of Democrats, Karl Rove — paid a lot of money for the reel, which will destroy an Obama candidacy if the Democrats nominate him.

Yeah, sure. I don’t believe it for a second. This smells a lot like a political dirty trick aimed at both Obama and the Republicans, on a par with the “love child” smear against McCain in 2000.

He goes on to explain why he doesn’t think the tape exists. I don’t either. Larry Johnson over there at No Quarter is just dropping another Clinton Stink Bomb, and trying to blame it on Republicans. It’s what they do.

The day when the Clintons are finally ushered off the political stage in America cannot possibly come too soon. Everything they touch gets dirty.
