The networks are agog over Hilary Clinton's new book, and extremely sympathetic regarding the details of how she was "duped" by the former First Husband. There is plenty of good stuff over at MRC outlining the most outrageous fawning over the poor heartbroken senator. Personally, I don't care how she felt when Bill dropped the bomb; I have to agree that she must be the dimmest bulb on the planet if she was at all unsuspecting through the whole sordid affair. What I find most galling is that, ever the political opportunist, she tried to redirect blame to conservatives ("the vast right wing conspiracy"). Now we are supposed to share her pain and her crocodile tears. Sorry, Hil, I can't feel any empathy for someone who used her own personal problems as a launching pad for her politics, especially when she fails to acknowledge the damage she attempted to visit on others at the time. It is not surprising that Clinton paints herself as the only victim in this tragi-comedy. It's also not suprising that the networks are falling for it.
