Hillary has experience... telling lies!

Hillary has been campaigning hard on the depth of her experience, never mind that this is a strategy that can only work against Obama and is sure to doom her to failure against McCain. And never mind that the bulk of this experience has been as a wife, not a leader. And never mind that her track record of actual accomplishments includes a variety of terrible choices and decisions that range somewhere between questionable and possibly criminal. Now she has proven that she is willing to invent NEW experiences to further pad out her resume:

"I remember landing under sniper fire," she said in a speech last week in Washington, reading from prepared remarks. "There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."

When that whole incident turned out to be a lie she brushed it off, saying, "So I made a mistake, that happens," she said when the question was raised again. "It proves I'm human - which for some people is a revelation."

Now come on... the question was not whether she was served a turkey or ham sandwich on the plane 12 years ago. I've got to believe that even a traveler so worldly and knowledgeable as Hillary Clinton would have a crystal clear memory of the day that sniper fire opened up around her.

What we have here is a demonstrated willingness to lie to the American public whenever it is politically expedient. It's an area in which the Clintons have considerably more experience that Barack Obama!

Haven't we had enough liars?
