CSW posts a weird open letter to Hillary Clinton from Dick Morris. I don’t know who comes off worse in the piece, Morris or the Clintons.

Assuming everything Morris says is true–a leap, I’ll admit–we know (or have further proof) that:

1. Hillary Clinton is a liar and is using her book to make herself look good, using even more lies

2. Bill Clinton is a scumbag

3. Dick Morris is a wimp

4. Dick Morris has no principles

5. Dick Morris has no shame

    Indeed, on all counts.

    I have heard him recount this story before, so it isn’t new. However, I do tend to take everything he says with a shaker of salt, and tend to avoid him when he is on TV, writes, etc.

    And really, the whole Clinton gang inspires such aversion.

    Ah, yes… Dick Morris…the pontificating prostitute purchaser. How do people like this make more money than I do?

  3. James Joyner says:

    A WHOLE LOT more money than you do, in fact. Good question. He doesn’t strike me as particularly clever. Maybe shamelessness is a helpful quality in a political strategist?

  4. John Hudock says:

    But even if everything Dick Morris says is a lie, didn’t we really strongly suspect all of those things already?

  5. John Lemon says:

    Actually, sometimes Morris makes some good points. I just have a hard time listening to him. And reading him, I have this image of this fat, Adam-Ant looking guy with a weird mouth twitch talking … so reading him is difficult too.

    I prefer the wit and wisdom of Morris the Cat.

    I can’t stand people like Dick Morris. He might be correct in his assessment of the Clintons but I can’t get beyond the fact that most of what he knows about them was learnt through private/intimate conversations. Now that he’s exposing them to make a buck is just betrayal of the worse kind. It makes me sick!
