Smear Watch

SMEAR WATCH….Muckraker extrordinaire Dan Moldea tells Howard Kurtz that Hillary Clinton is about to be Swift Boated:

“I have it on very, very good authority that major opposition research has already been conducted on Bill Clinton, and it’s going to be a massive smear campaign against him,” he says. A group of former intelligence officers, he says, is “going to try to cripple Hillary through Bill.”

This oughta be good. What do you think the wingnuts can possibly say about Bill Clinton that’s worse than the mud they slung while he was in office? I mean, he’s already been accused of dealing drugs, fathering out-of-wedlock babies, murdering Vince Foster, murdering Ron Brown, and being a paid agent of the Chinese government, just to name a few. What the hell is left? Secret meetings with Osama on 9/10?
