Bill Bubba Clinton raised 600,000 in Kentucky alone for Lundergan-Rimes, and after Fancy Farm 2014 (they'd prefer 1714 but you can't always get what you want as a political extremest) … perhaps that's why they're so damn angry and hatin' hatin' hat in'.From Morning Schmoe and Mika, on messbbc.

From Now with Alex Wagner:

Whatever we might think of the Clintons, Bill can seriously make it rain.

Hillary

“The Colbert Report” on Tuesday night, showcased one of the funniest moments of Hillary Rodham Clinton, as she did a surpreeze Pop-In for a name-dropping festival and some chortles.

A wry Stephen Colbert commenced the segment with an ascerbic review of the audio-book version of Clinton’s new book, “Hard Choices.” From MSNBC.

“This book is 656 pages of shameless name-dropping,” Colbert says, before listing off a handful of instances where Clinton mentions world leaders and singer Bono in the book. “I just don’t buy any of this. There is no way on Earth one woman can be in so many places at once!”

Then, Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state,  walks on set … and the pair face off in a battle of the name-droppers.

From Carl Lafoon, commenter over at messnbc, a wise statement on political reality. Realism is not a Republican strong suit. And by goddess, they want everyone to know about it. Repeatedly.

She is not even running and she is clobbering the Republicans. We see examples of the Republican Party self destructing almost every day.

Today they refused to even address a FIX to the Border Issue.
They did agree to sue the President with details to be provided at a later date. The fact that they have no standing ie they were not injured seems to have evaded their logic.

Have a giggle, Comedy Central had the hilarious footage, via Hula and Morning Schmoe, here.

 

Then the conversation got even punnier, as only Colbert can execute flawlessly. They shared a few other One Uppers.

“I know Raffi. He’s such a cutup. Especially when we go camping with Oprah,” Colbert says.

“O?”

“Oh, does that surprise you?” Colbert asks.

“No. ‘O’ is just what all her real friends call Oprah,” Clinton answers.

“I know Paul McCartney.”

“I will have you know, Madame, I once did an entire show with President Bill Clinton,” Colbert says.

“I hate to break this to you Stephen, but I’ve met him, too.”

Nineties Nostalgia? UP and Lizz Winstead Discuss Liberally

Whether you enjoy the young Steve Kornacki or not, he throws a great weekend roundtable on UP. This holiday weekend brought some extra humor in, including someone we are all likely fans of, co-creator of The Daily Show and founder of Lady Parts Justice, Lizz Winstead.

Clinton-mania is starting to rev it's engines on both sides of the aisle, and it won't be long before the really large mega-phones come out on all fronts. Whether you tolerate Hillary or not, insert your reaction here, she and the Nineties are an inevitable topic of conversation from now until The HRC Announce or Denounce and Bow Out Date.

If you are of a certain age, this is a great look back and offers a glimpse of what could be again - a confident country that doesn't have it's ass being wagged by the ubiquitous, lunatic fringe Tea Party. Remember the era before the Idjits?!?

I never do this in posts ... but:  Sigh.

UP took a truly amusing look at how we have or have not changed since the nineties, a table that included the afore-mentioned liberally hilarious Lizz Winstead.

Somehow Saturday Night Live came to mind on the heels of that discussion, so for an extra chortle, here's how those of us who were young adults in the Nineties had a laugh at Bubba, while we were comfortably ensconced in financial security and low unemployment. And had no Lipton Brigade phuquing things up.

"Get off your asses, fellas' … you've got an awfully lot of work to do," is as true now as it was then.

Get Out the Vote!! Who knows how many other Palins are lurking out there in the Wild?!!

Bill Clinton Death Wish: To Die For Hillary

EBKleinw264h212

Well, when you're an author with inside connections, you will sometimes shine a light on some amazing stories. And today was no exception over at Fox News. Among the highlights was an interview with author Ed Klein, reported on by Raw Story:

"An author who Fox News hosts insisted had “impeccable” sources told the network on Tuesday that former President Bill Clinton had considered using his own death to help Hillary Clinton win the presidency.

That's some pretty big news. Sourcing is important if you're going to make claims like that.

Host Steve Doocy reiterated that Klein’s “sources are impeccable,” and that he had even talked to the household help after one of the Obamas’ vacations at Martha’s Vineyard.

Talking to the household staff after a vacation stay does sound pretty impeccable. I'm sure the Clintons felt comfortable revealing everything to strangers who were making their beds and doing their dishes.

Let's dig a little deeper and take a look at Ed Klein's bona fides. He's a previous author on the Clintons with his 2005 book, The Truth About Hillary, which was panned by critics for being “poorly researched, poorly written, poorly sourced.”

In that explosive expose of a book, Klein suggested that Hillary Clinton was a lesbian and that she was raped by then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton (D) when they conceived their daughter Chelsea. Now you can see where the 'poorly researched, poorly written, poorly sourced' label comes from.

Letting you decide the accuracy of those claims, let's look at Klein's  latest revelations. First Bill Clinton, upon being told he has a progressive heart disease was actually quite happy on two fronts. First, he thought "progressive" meant liberal (the author's way of making a joke). But secondly he felt good about his passing because of what it could mean for Hillary.

“And he’s discussed with Hillary, according to people who were in the room with them when he did it, what would happen if he died,” Klein said. “What should Hillary do? And what is said is, ‘Hillary, you should put on widow’s weeds, dress in black, and it would be worth a couple of million votes.”

This is all too delicious just to read.You gotta see it to believe it. The most amazing thing to remember is that just yesterday the hosts had been skeptical of Klein's assertions. What turned them around? See for yourself:
