I'm sure you all recall Ed Klein, the most outrageously pseudo of all our nation's pseudojournalists. He's the guy who wrote that fake book which supposedly offers an inside look at the Obama-Clinton war -- as though anyone close to either Clinton or Obama would share their deepest secrets with Ed.
(What was the title...? I think it was Ed's Big Book O' Bullshit
. Something like that.)
He's at it again,
with a new claim that Valerie Jarrett engineered the Hillary Clinton "scandal."
Members of Bill Clinton’s camp say the former president suspects the White House is the source of the leak and is furious.
“My contacts and friends in newspapers and TV tell me that they’ve been contacted by the White House and offered all kinds of negative stories about us,” one of Bill’s friends quotes him as saying. “The Obamas are behind the e-mail story, and they’re spreading rumors that I’ve been with women, that Hillary promoted people at the State Department who’d done favors for our foundation, that John Kerry had to clean up diplomatic messes Hillary left behind.”
Then, according to this source, Bill added: “The Obamas are out to get us any way they can.”
It goes on and on like that. Like the better Monty Python skits, Ed's silliness is so
silly as to be nearly divine.
Believe it or not, the right-wingers are pretending to take this seriously, even though doing so must require some very painful tongue-biting.
Turnabout is fair play. Readers, we need to come up with a similar narrative about the Republicans. I'll start you off:
A source close to Jen Bush reports that the former Florida governor is so furious at Scott Walker that he...
How would you
finish that sentence?
More importantly, can you think of a way to expand your Bush narrative into a bestselling book?
Bonus points if your "research" discovers a connection between the Bush clan and the Black-Eyed Kids
. I'm on a Black-Eyed Kids kick.
