Quick, someone head to dictionary.com and email Hillary the meaning of the word irony.
Democrats in Congress accused Vice President Dick Cheney of a pattern of secrecy, and demanded that he “level” with the public, after keeping mum about accidentally shooting an associate over the weekend.
Cheney has been criticized for waiting a day before disclosing a hunting mishap Saturday in which he shot his 78-year-old hunting companion, Harry Whittington, in the neck, chest, and face.
Asked at a press conference for her reaction about how the White House has handled the incident, US Senator Hillary Clinton called the Bush administration’s failure to be more forthcoming “troubling.”
“A tendency of this administration — from the top all the way to the bottom — is to withhold information … to refuse to be forthcoming about information that is of significance and relevance to the jobs that all of you do, and the interests of the American people,” Clinton said.
So Hillary C-L-I-N-T-O-N wants to complain about an administration keeping secrets? Do the words “billing records” ring a bell, Hillary? And as I recall there was another big secret during the Clinton administration something about an intern or something… I forget.
I understand the game they are playing, they want to keep Cheney’s problem on the front page and use it to smear Bush. — But can’t they come up with talking points that are not so intellectually insulting? Hillary whining about an administation keeping secrects is just insulting to anyone with a brain.
UPDATE Apparently ‘ol Teddy Kennedy is blind to irony as well.
