The kettle called the pot black - Hillary on the attack

 The Clinton campaign demanded that Barack Obama denounce comments made by the DreamWorks movie studio founder, who told New York Times [NYT] columnist Maureen Dowd in Wednesday’s editions that while ”everybody in politics lies,” the former president and his wife ”do it with such ease, it’s troubling.”  In fact, Obama has been told to give back Geffen’s $2,300 contribution.

What’s the problem?  He was just saying what everyone has been thinking.  Democrats have long admired the Clinton’s for their Clintonian distortion of the truth and Teflon armor that thwarts their detractors from holding them accountable for anything. 

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has a new shrill commandment for the 2008 presidential field: Thou shalt not mention anything related to the impeachment of her husband.

With a swift response to attacks from a former supporter last week, advisers to the New York Democrat offered a glimpse of their strategy for handling one of the most awkward chapters of her biography. They declared her husband's impeachment in 1998 -- or, more accurately, the embarrassing personal behavior that led to it -- taboo, putting her rivals on notice and all but daring other Democrats to mention the ordeal again.

Let’s hold Hillary to the same standard regarding Obama’s alleged Muslim upbringing, shall we?
