Chris Matthews' Heartache: Bill Clinton's War Stance

icon Download icon Download (h/t Heather)

Poor little Clenis-obsessed Tweety. Bill Clinton rocked his world yesterday by saying that he had always been against the Iraq invasion. Now whether that is true is somewhat debatable, because my own Lexis search didn't turn up anything that would indicate that, although he certainly has expressed it in the years since. Certainly at the time of the invasion (can you say "freedom fries"?), the wingnuts would have gone crazy had a former president spoken out against the current administration. But that doesn't matter to Chris Matthews, he can't believe that Bill Clinton would be rewriting history.

Well, with this flim-flam coming out about Bill Clinton , I just don't know what to say. I have finally been mastered by Bill Clinton. I finally don't think I can match him for chutzpah. It's a good Yiddishism for the ability to say something absolutely ridiculous.

Really, how dare anyone attempt anything as utterly ridiculous as rewriting pre-Iraq invasion history?

If this doesn't prove Tweety's right wing tool-osity consider this: Hardball did make a passing reference to Rove's unbelievably audacious interview with Charlie Rose, but spent five whole minutes over two segments on the betrayal by Bill Clinton, who it must be said, did NOT occupy the White House at the time of the invasion.
