wsjpoll-petraeusreport.jpgcontessa-jim.jpg She's not even a major talk show host, but Contessa made Jim Dyke, (an advisor to Rudy) look like a fool. Giuliani is trying to fund raise and blur the problems for the GOP over the Iraq war by targeting MoveOn and Gen. Petraeus, but seemingly unknown to his camp, 52% of Americans have little or no confidence in the Petraeus report. (vid is a little out of sync. C&Lers are emailing a lot of clips now and some of them have great content, but iffy quality)

Brewer:...so basically Hillary is lining up with more than half of Americans polled.

Dyke: Um, well for one thing it doesn't make it OK to call him a liar.

Brewer:...She didn't call him a liar..Wait, just to be clear here, she didn't call him a liar.

Dyke: Contessa, that's my interpretation and you can interpret how ever you want.

Hillary responds to the children:

"Rudy Giuliani is dropping in the polls and is unable to defend his own support for George Bush's failed war. Instead of distorting Senator Clinton's record in the campaign's first attack ad, the Mayor should tell voters why he thinks sticking with the Bush Iraq strategy makes sense. The country wants change and while Hillary Clinton is focused ending the war, Mayor Giuliani is playing politics."
