“He would not have been my pastor,” Clinton said. “You don’t choose your family, but you choose what church you want to attend.”
“You know, I spoke out against Don Imus (who was fired from his radio and television shows after making racially insensitive remarks), saying that hate speech was unacceptable in any setting, and I believe that,” Clinton said. “I just think you have to speak out against that. You certainly have to do that, if not explicitly, then implicitly by getting up and moving.”
This, however, is nonsense…
On saying last week that she landed under sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia in 1996, when she was first lady:
“I was sleep-deprived, and I misspoke.”
As anybody who has seen the interview knows, she was very specific about her trip to Bosnia, even going so far as recalling the type of plane they were on and the evasive maneuver they took to land. She also made a point of saying, when openly questioned about her version of the events, that the way she was describing the events were exactly how it happened. Hardly the words of somebody who was having hazy, sleep deprived recollections.
Long story short, she should have just stuck with saying she misspoke, because saying she didn’t have enough sleep might make people wonder if she’s really ready for that 3 a.m. phone call.
