Afternoon Outrage Opportunity

Barack Obama will break his boycott of Fox News on Sunday.

And, via Ben Smith, Newsday explains why it’s so hard to believe that Hillary Clinton had no idea her husband was pardoning Weathermen.

Of course she had no idea what Bill was up to. She was just the First Lady, not some kind of administration official who participated in important decisions.

That's too bad that he's doing Fox. Hope it's worth it.

But of course she participated in decisions. The things the Clinton administration did that you personally like? Yeah, that was totally all her. She was there, pushing Bill's hand along the paper as he signed it. It was just all those other policy decisions he made, the ones you personally didn't like so much, that she wasn't around for.

Yep. Vote Hillary for a repeat of Bill, unless you didn't like Bill, in which case you're sexist for even suggesting such a thing.

It's not that she lies.

It's that she does it like a Republican.

I wouldnt be suprised if North Carolina and Indiana are big time FOX watching states. This may all be part of a knock out blow strategy. Lets hope so. I mean even if he wins both states HRC will continue to soldier on, undeterred by reality or whats best for her party as usual, but at least the media will finally just ignore her.
