Not so Hillary-ious Hijinks

Ladies and gentlement, may I present the one, the only, the countess of hypocrisy, the mistress of mendacity, the governess of gullibility...

We cannot take any option off the table in sending a clear message to the current leadership of Iran that they will not be permitted to acquire nuclear weapons," she said. "In order to prevent that from occurring, we must have more support vigorously and publicly expressed by China and Russia, and we must move as quickly as feasible for sanctions in the United Nations.

-- Hillary Clinton

Uhmmm, grarrumph, *** throat-clearing noise ***

The Russia the Senator refers to would be the same one [Clinton VP] Al Gore cut a deal with that emboldened "sales of missile and nuclear technology to Iran" and, if you believe Zbigniew Brzezinski and James Schlesinger, the sale "of highly threatening military equipment such as modern submarines, fighter planes, and wake-homing torpedoes."

...and there's also this:

Senator Clinton has accused President Bush of downplaying the threat from Iran while she has been accepting money from supporters of the Iranian regime.

Wealthy businessmen Hassan Nemazee and Faraj Aalaei are associated with the American Iranian Council, a pro-regime anti-sanctions group. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Namazee has contributed $4,000 to Clinton's reelection while Aalaei has given $1,000...

Yes, Hillary talks a hard-line -- bashing the administration -- while reportedly banking Iranian money for her campaign coffers.

There may be some sort of record for duplicity here, although the litany of questionable behavior in her husband's administration represents formidable competition.
