U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday she made a mistake in claiming that she came under hostile fire in Bosnia 12 years ago, as rival Sen. Barack Obama's campaign continued to challenge her credibility.
"So I made a mistake," she said. "That happens. It proves I'm human, which you know, for some people, is a revelation."
Regardless of who becomes president it has been a pleasure watching Hilary try to do those old Clinton things that are no longer allowed. You forget whether or not the car keys are in the office. You don't forget sniper fire.
I love the old, "It proves I'm human" business. Implying that honest people really aren't human. Or is she saying that she is mentally deranged constantly dreaming up alternate universes? She just can't leave well enough alone, can she?
Just as the electorate wonders about the soundness of Obama's judgment with Wright, Hilary comes along to show voters that hers isn't all that sharp either. To lie about something meaningless and verifiable at this point in the game is minor league.
