Shhh! Don’t Talk About Rudy’s Marriages!

Posted by Phoenix Woman on February 28, 2007

As Atrios says:

Bill Clinton is an incredibly popular person and only our Beltway press could imagine that he would somehow be a “liability” to his wife.

Though, to be fair, the subtext of the “concerns” of the Beltway chatterers is that they’re really talking not about Bill Clinton, but about the Clenis, and the implication is that Bill will be a liability because the Clenis, an unstoppable mystical force, might get up to no good.

Why Bill Clinton’s past infidelity is more relevant to his wife’s candidacy than Rudy Giuliani’s own infidelity is to his own candidacy is an exercise left to the reader.

Hell, one of the talking points that the December 11, 2006 internal memo from Mitt Romney’s campaign discusses is the fact that if Rudy wins the nomination, it becomes impossible to go after Hillary for being too “liberal” (which Republicans and their media allies conflate with being prone to having extramarital sex).

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
