It astounds me that friends of politicians…

…and I mean true, sincere friends – anyway, it shocks me that you’d keep anything remotely resembling an archive of your correspondence with them. I know that you’re not supposed to say that in public, given that it flies right into the (truly good) principle of trying to preserve of history.  But… people like me exist.  And when we’re given this tidbit of information:

Hillary Clinton’s blunt assessments were not confined to Monica Lewinsky. In a Dec. 3, 1993, diary entry, [Diane] Blair recounted a conversation with the first lady about “Packwood”—a reference to then-Sen. Bob Packwood, an influential Republican on health care embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal.

“HC tired of all those whiney women, and she needs him on health care,” wrote Blair.

…we’re going to promulgate it.  Justifiably.  I mean, I was unaware that Hillary Clinton helped enable Bob Packwood’s behavior. I was certainly unaware of it when I was a Democrat. And I know full well that repeating it now will make some people who are still Democrats just a little bit less likely to give Hillary Clinton their all in 2016*.

So, you know… non scriptu[m], non est.

*Always remember that the Democrats that you meet online are not truly representative of the Democrats that will cast votes in elections.  This post costs me effectively nothing; if telling the truth about her with it sours one person on Clinton’s candidacy then I will have succeeded.

Or, as the man says: rust never sleeps.  And I have plenty of time.

    Do you mean “Non Scriptum, Non Est” my friend?

    Its a good read, from what I’ve read so far. And I hope someone gets into the restricted area of the archive to reveal anything of interest in that section as well.

    I imagine quite a few “sincere friends” of the Clintons kept meticulous notes of their dealings with them, to be released after the writer’s death or whatnot, if only because the Clinton’s kept their own lists and have no problem ‘revising’ the historical facts and timeline. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if we see more coming out from others in the future. Quite exciting really I think

    It is one way to get a footnote in history …

    It is also, as USCMogul points out, simply protecting your own backside if you befriend a weasel.

    I’m still hung up on the implications of Hillary’s “true, sincere friend” evidently having an affair with Bill.
    .
    I think it’s fair to say that the Clintons were far from the only weasels in the story. I expect we’ll eventually find out juicy details about an entire sneak of weasels.
    Or maybe not. We still don’t know what happened with regards to most of the mysteries of the Clinton Administration. (I’m shocked that there hasn’t at least been a tell-all about the Vince Foster fiasco.)

      Having read through it, there are a few mentions. check the bottom of page 20 about an American Spectator article. I don’t recall it.
