Once stupid, always stupid, stupid stupid stupid

Sen. Clinton has managed to snag all the endorsements from people I generally associate with the worst political decision of the 21st century -- a category that now includes all of Rudy Giuliani's Presidential aspirations, remember. The only person missing to complete the full house of stupidity would be the deputy leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. It's somewhat amusing that their rationales for endorsing her are as half-witted as their rationales for invading some country filled with brown people and oil -- any country will do!
[Paul] Berman also likes the idea of Clinton in the war room. "A candidate like Hillary, who participated in the decisions that toppled Slobodan Milosevic, is nicely situated to argue that, on the topic of military stand-offs and far-away dictators, she possesses a superior understanding."
Uh, she didn't participate in any of those decisions. Not a one. She never had security clearance, was never in the Cabinet or Security Council discussions on Kosovo, and I'll bet you $1,000,000 that someday, she'll admit all this on top of the fact that, at the time, she was barely on speaking terms with her husband. I seem to remember something else happening in the 1998-99 time span that preoccupied the Clinton family, something having to do with William Jefferson Clinton's restraint and wisdom.

But if you can justify invading Iraq as "a war of liberation", I suppose you're stupid enough to believe that the much-vaunted position of First Lady gave Hillary the experience necessary to launch those same idiotic wars.
