Democrats Dish It Out But Can't Take It

I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti."


Hillary Clinton Ally Threatens Ken Mehlman

A longtime media ally of Sen. Hillary Clinton is warning Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman that Mrs. Clinton will "get even" with him for saying she's too angry to win the White House.

"As Mehlman will find out, Hillary doesn't get angry, she gets even," predicts Bloomberg News columnist Margaret Carlson, in a screed published Thursday.

Carlson, a longtime booster of Mrs. Clinton going back to her days at Time magazine and CNN, vowed that Hillary won't be steamrolled by hardball GOP tactics, saying:

"The senator who has reached a 60 percent approval rating with teeth-gritting determination, hold-your-nose alliances and practiced good cheer won't be Swift-boated or goaded by Mehlman's name-calling."

Carlson's prediction that Mehlman will pay for attacking Mrs. Clinton comports with the former first lady's long history of playing "get even" politics. Throughout the 1990s, for instance, Clinton accusers often found themselves targeted by IRS audits - or had embarrassing details about their private lives leaked to the press.

Just this week, Anthony Pellicano - a private eye the Clintons used to dig up dirt on their opponents - was indicted in Los Angeles on wiretapping charges.

Wild Thing's comment......
Just like Muslims who react violently to criticism that they're violent, Hillary reacts angrily to criticism that she's angry. "Hillary doesn't get angry, she gets even" that statement is 100% right on that point. The woman has the patience of Satan, the political instincts of Machiavelli, with a hang over and integrity of Al Capone, on a bad day.
