David Vs. The Goliaths

Dick Morris has a few things to say about his former boss, and how she handles political criticism. (What, you thought I was talking about Bill? Please. We all know who wears the pants in that organization.)

Take it from someone who knows...pissing off the Clintons is not done lightly:

If you like the idea of censorship of critical political speech, you’ll love Hillary Clinton as president.

To Hilary, open political discourse apparently means that her opponents and their surrogates are free to compliment her. If they do otherwise, it’s off with their heads.

Not even supporters of Hillary’s opponents are allowed to disparage her. If they do, the wrath of Hillary surfaces and it is not a pretty sight.

Case in point: movie mogul David Geffen, who was once one of Bill's biggest supporters (to the tune of about 18 milllion bucks), now says Hillary's not the pretty princess she would like us to think she is. (Gasp! Blasphemy!)
Geffen gave an interview to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd. Here’s a few tidbits from him that apparently rankled Hillary:

“… I don’t think that another incredibly polarizing figure, no matter how smart she is and no matter how ambitious she is — and God knows, is there anybody more ambitious than Hillary Clinton? — can bring the country together.”

“Obama is inspirational, and he’s not from the Bush royal family or the Clinton royal family.”

“It’s not a very big thing to say, ‘I made a mistake’ on the war, and typical of Hillary Clinton that she can’t.”

Geffen also call Bill Clinton “a reckless guy” who “gave his enemies a lot of ammunition to hurt him and to distract the country.”

Instead, he's backing Barack Obama, having raised $1.3 million already for the senator from Illinois.

The Clintons' response? Screaming for Obama to renounce his new best friend AND give back all that money.

Obama is no fool, however, as evidenced in the Obama campaign's response to Her Majesty's demands:
“It is ironic that the Clintons had no problem with David Geffen when he was raising the $18 million and sleeping at their invitation in the Lincoln bedroom…It is also ironic that Senator Clinton lavished praise on Monday and is fully willing to accept today the support of South Carolina Senator Robert Ford who said if Barack Obama were to win the nomination, he would drag down the rest of the Democratic Party because he’s black.”

We have not heard the last of this, friends. She Who Would Be Queen will not stand long for this spurning of the Royal Hand.

Tip o' the rock to Cousin Lem over at Hillbilly White Trash for the initial clue-X-4.
