Sniper fire is now a joke for Clinton.

Clinton pokes fun at Bosnia gaffe, Bill

It was a gaffe that caused the Clinton campaign a serious headache two weeks ago, but in an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Thursday night, the New York senator was all smiles about it.

As she walked out on stage, Clinton told Leno she almost didn’t make the interview.

“I was pinned down by sniper fire at the Burbank airport,” Clinton said laughing. “

Try to laugh it off, Hillary. Go ahead. I’m not laughing.

“You know this has been such a mismatch of words and actions,” Clinton also told Leno. “I was thinking about it, because obviously I’ve been so privileged to represent our country in, gosh, more than 80 other countries, lots of war zones and all the rest of it — I wrote about this in my book and obviously I just had a lapse.” “

Nice. Hillary’s experience is so vast that it caused her to make shit up. That’s the message. See how full of shit she is? The more I’ve thought about the sniper story, the more I’ve realized what a liar she is. Where did she get the material for that supposed memory? As friends of mine have said, there’s no fuckin’ way that the government would let the first lady fly into a war zone like that. It makes no sense.

No amount of laughing it off or trying to pin it to her little vacations is going to convince me that this was a simple brain fart. It’s not. It’s a goddamned lie that attempted to trick the American people, and it should be called for what it is.

Hillary Clinton and the gender card

Hillary supporters are now playing the gender card.

“Women will indeed be upset if it appears people are trying to push Hillary Clinton out of the way,” said Carol Fowler, the South Carolina Democratic chair who is backing Obama. “If you are going to ask her to withdraw, you’d better be making a strong case.”

I see. Obama is where he is because he’s black, right Geraldine? And Hillary is being held back because she’s a woman, or she’s going to win because she’s a woman.

Why do Hillary and her supporters keep bringing up the features that neither she nor Obama can control? (Issues of determinism aside….)

Remember what they said in late 2007: http://www.boston.com…. 0/15/clintons_team_says_women_will_carry_win/

Why can’t we focus on policy? This bullshit about Hillary’s gender needs to be called exactly what it is: a talking point for the single-issue voter–the worst kind of voter available.

I don’t care if she’s a neon-green hermaphrodite. The bottom line is that her arguments suck, as I’ve already made abundantly clear.

Raconteurs New Album (“Consolers of the Lonely”) Done and on Shelves in a Week

White Stripes fans, you gotta love this. Jack White’s “other band,” the Raconteurs announced today that they are done with their new album…and that it’s coming out in all formats in 1 week:

In order to release an album that will ‘not be defined by it’s [sic] first weeks [sic] sales, pre-release promotion, or by someone defining it FOR YOU before you get to hear it,’ the Raconteurs have opted to release their just-completed album next week. In a press release signed by the band…the Raconteurs say that their second album, Consolers of the Lonely, will be available in digital, CD, and vinyl formats March 25, after being completed earlier this month. It’s an unprecedented move for a band releasing an album via a major label, in this case, Warner Brothers.

Right on, bros. I’m sold. This buy is a shoo-in given that one of the Trumpet staff’s finest moments included the Raconteurs at Lollapalooza 2006 (where they were one of 832 bands who played Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy”…but at least they did it best…other than Skee-Lo of course) where they blew the roof off Grant Park. If I had a Youtube vid of Pumpkin + the butt-grabbers during the Kanye show…and Armando’s hair.

Anyway, Jack White is now officially a Trumpet mancrush in my book. This is a great stunt. Review in 1 week.
