Mrs. Clinton: I Risked My Life With Sinbad

The Pantsuit is really getting desperate.

Now we're hearing about harrowing tales of heroism while flying around as First Lady.
Ever since Barack Obama suggested Hillary Clinton's eight years as first lady were a glorified tea party a few days back, she's looked for an opening to strike back.

On Saturday night in Dubuque she pounced, arguing she risked her life on White House missions in the 1990s, including a hair-raising flight into Bosnia that ended in a "corkscrew" landing and a sprint off the tarmac to dodge snipers.

"I don't remember anyone offering me tea," she quipped.

The dictum around the Oval Office in the '90s, she added, was: "If a place was too dangerous, too poor or too small, send the first lady."

It turns out that Clinton wasn't quite flying solo into harm's way that day.

She was, in fact, leading a goodwill entourage that included baggy-pants funnyman Sinbad, singer Sheryl Crow and Clinton's daughter, Chelsea, then 15, according to an account of the March 1995 trip in her autobiography "Living History."
Guffaws all around with this one.

Truly pathetic.

Via Memeorandum:

Michelle Malkin: Hillary the Superhero! More daring than Jack Bauer…

Weekly Standard: The Quiet Heroism of Hillary Clinton

Captain Ed: Hillary, The Geraldo Of National Politics

S&L: How hilarious (or rather, Hilliarous)

Macsmind: More Hillary Re-Writing of History

Suitably Flip: First Lady Hillary Risked Her Life For Her Country

Gateway Pundit: Superhero Hillary's Got Experience...

Sister Toldjah: It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s SuperHill!

Maybe this is why Chelsea isn't talking.

UPDATE: Now she's politicizing New Year's.

A new beginning, huh?

Besides being redundant, there was a new beginning back in 1993 as well.

In fact, that was the theme of Clinton's first inaugural.
In charge of the events are Mr. Clinton's best fund-raiser and image-makers: Rahm Emanuel, the 32-year-old Clinton campaign finance director, and two close friends of the President-elect, Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and Harry Thomason. They are the husband-wife team that created the television hits "Designing Women" and "Evening Shade," as well as the film biography of Mr. Clinton, "The Man from Hope," shown at the Democratic convention.

Mr. Emanuel said the occasion would emphasize "change, hope, opportunity -- a new beginning and also the reunited states."
There is still lingering evidence. Get a load of this one.

UPDATE II: Happy New Year! Suitably Flip has even more Clinton corruption.
Today, the Clinton campaign is trumpeting an endorsement milestone, as Maria Cantwell (D-WA) became the 10th Senator to throw her weight behind Hillary. A statistic the campaign doesn't mention is that Cantwell is now the 6th Senator with financial backing from Norman Hsu and/or his network of alleged straw donors to endorse Senator Clinton.

Other Hsu-greased Democratic Senators already in the Clinton camp include Dianne Feinstein (CA), Robert Menendez (NJ), Mark Pryor (AR), Debbie Stabenow (MI), and Sheldon Whitehouse (RI). Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), one of Hsu's most richly funded politicians, has not made a formal endorsement, but his wife Ruth endorsed Clinton in July.
