Bill Clinton Casts The First Stone

As with many things involving the 39th 42nd President, this story just writes itself:

Former President Clinton has sent out a fundraising letter on behalf of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee under his own name warning that Republicans are trying to “derail’ President Obama’s agenda.

Not much unexpected there.

But along with the letter, Clinton has included a flyer from the DSCC that’s bound to raise eyebrows.

“DSCC funds go towards efforts to unseat far-right Republican senators like admitted sinner David Vitter…” the flyer says, referring to the Louisiana senator who admitted patronizing a prostitution service when he was in the House.

Umm, Mr. President, how do I put this ?

    I don’t have a fancy degree in political science, or anything, but I’m pretty sure that Clinton was the 42nd president, not the 39th.

  2. Yea, I don’t know where my brain was on that one

    What we’d all really like to know is what was Hillary thinking as she stared at Bill wagging his unit, er, digit, er, finger…….

  4. An Interested Party says:

    How shameful that President Clinton would resort to casting stones in this way, much like what Newt Gingrich, Henry Hyde, and Bob Livingston, among many others, did to him…

  5. Nathan says:

    Yeah, the difference is Republicans tried to impeach Clinton but Vitter is still a sitting senator. It is an attempt to point out the hypocrisy.
