The Truth About the Truth About Hillary
When Drudge broke news of “The Truth About Hillary” by Ed Klein some time back, I was skeptical about both the content and its ultimate impact on the campaign. Now that Drudge has revealed the substance of the book’s most sensational charge, namely that Bill raped Hillary leading to the conception of Chelsea, my intial reaction seems confirmed.
As Steven Taylor writes,
How in the world Klein can make this claim (based, it seems, on a alleged throw-away line that Bill supposedly uttered-see Ann Althouse for a likely explanation) is beyond me. It certainly goes beyond the bounds or reasonable research and journalism.
This claim takes me back to the worse of the Right during the Clinton years: the making of allegations without foundation out of a visceral and sensational dislike of the Clintons.
Indeed. Thankfully, Taylor’s reaction seems to be by far the most prevalent one, at least if the generally negative reaction around the Blogosphere is any indication.
Astute readers will note that I have a BlogAd for the book in my right sidebar. In the spirit of free speech and selling out for mad blog bucks, I almost never reject ads for content so long as the ad itself isn’t offensive. Goodness, I took money from George Soros.
