Hillary Clinton has admitted that she misspoke about her trip to Bosnia, but if she hadn’t, it might have looked something like this. Or not.

If the phone rings at 3:00 AM, do you realy want a woman who would not hesitate to tell a blatant lie to con voters in a party primary answering?

I am not a linguist,but I’ll dare to venture a definition of a word Hillary and McCain have popularized recently:
TO MISSPEAK: A verb meaning,
          -the action of passing responsability
          for one’s blatant lies on to one’s own
(Although closely related to its Orwellian relative-NEWSPEAK, Misspeak is clearly, only a sub-set of the former.)

Hill’s been embellishing her ‘war’ stories? Heightening the drama? LOL!

Aww, she just wants you guys to like her!

This gaff has a goofy sort of charm, if you don’t think she’s the anti-christ.

If she can’t win anymore, why bash her like this?

I like videos like this. Laughter diffuses the nastiness.

Do you remember this? Hillary Clinton planted a question while campaigning in Iowa.

See these video

Now the Bosnian sniper fire controversy

Does it suggest a pattern?
