Okay, okay. There’s a lot of competition for this award, especially in politics and celebrity circles, but this has got to be one of the finalists:
Bill Clinton calls Louisiana senator ‘sinner’ in fundraising letter
Former President Clinton has sent out a fundraising letter on behalf of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee under his own name warning that Republicans are trying to “derail’ President Obama’s agenda.
Not much unexpected there.
But along with the letter, Clinton has included a flyer from the DSCC that’s bound to raise eyebrows.
“DSCC funds go towards efforts to unseat far-right Republican senators like admitted sinner David Vitter…” the flyer says, referring to the Louisiana senator who admitted patronizing a prostitution service when he was in the House.
Bill Clinton decrying someone else for being a sinner? Bill “Blue dress” Clinton? William Jefferson “I did not have sex with that woman” Clinton?? What was the DSCC thinking?
Someone check the exchanges, because I think he just cornered the market on brass.
What’s next? Eliot Spitzer denouncing someone for the sin of lust? John Edwards lecturing on fidelity? Barack Obama on not blaming others? Wait. Scratch that last one…
