Hillary Clinton is a liar! (says Jonah Goldberg)



Warning: the below is laced with sarcasm.

For those of you who haven't had the very immense pleasure of reading Jonah Goldberg's absurdly titled book, Liberal Fascism, it may that you're still unaware of this writer's brilliance/wisdom/perspicacity (delete as appropriate). Now the distinguished scholar and author has cast his eye of Hillary Clinton's vigorous performance at the Senate last week.

And, putting things mildly, he's not very impressed: "Wednesday, in her testimony before the Senate and, later, the House, Clinton brilliantly fudged, dodged, and filibustered. Of course, she’s a pro. Clinton was slow-walking depositions, lawyering up, and shifting blame when many of her questioners were still civilians down on the farm."

Thankfully he has the humility to confess that: "Aided by a ridiculous format, she outfoxed most of the Republicans with ease." In case you think we're exaggerating Goldberg's allegations, it may be worth quoting this nugget from later in his piece: "Just to be clear, Clinton lied and is still lying".

Jonah, we salute you.
