    What a shocker... stinking politicians using "charity" to actually just further their political aspirations....

    A pox on all of them...

    http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/t...is-could-be-devastating-for-bill-and-hillary/

    Is the New York Times being guest edited by Rush Limbaugh? Today it runs with a fascinating takedown of the Clinton Foundation – that vast vanity project that conservatives are wary of criticising for being seen to attack a body that tries to do good. But the liberal NYT has no such scruples. The killer quote is this:

    For all of its successes, the Clinton Foundation had become a sprawling concern, supervised by a rotating board of old Clinton hands, vulnerable to distraction and threatened by conflicts of interest. It ran multimillion-dollar deficits for several years, despite vast amounts of money flowing in.

    Time to reread "Slouching Towards Washington", a searing expose of the Clintons by the late Robert Bork. Go ahead and vote for Hillary in 2016. And then immediately go and wash the slime off your hands.

    Politically speaking, dirt is young compared to Hillary. Outside of overpaid, fat white lawyers, the whack job left feminists and the media, she has no base.

    Fox does it constantly. I'm pretty it's survived just fine.

    MOC - Did you (or anyone else for that matter) actually read the NY Times article itself rather than the slanted description from an opinion column in the Telegraph. The actual article, which anyone can read by clicking here concerned potential conflicts on interest involving donors rather than any allegations of actual wrongdoing by the foundation or its employees.

    The foundation's evil activities as described in the NY Times article:

    That was the title. It was hardly just about the Clintons. In it, he called for government censorship of books, movies and the Internet (while complaining about big govt.) Wanted society to treat homosexuality as wrong. Blasted libertarians and the Declaration of Independence.
