Gail Collins, "Hillary and Bernie Meet New York": Truth Not Be Told



In a New York Times op-ed entitled "Hillary and Bernie Meet New York," Gail Collins pokes fun at Bernie Sander's claim that Hillary is not "qualified" to be president:

"Lately, Bernie Sanders seems to have been acting a little … off. There was the terrible interview with The Daily News. ('I don’t know … It’s something I have not studied … I haven’t thought about it a whole lot.') Then there was the strange series of claims that Clinton is not qualified to be president, the most improbable description he could pick short of 'lazy.'"

I'm no fan of Sanders, but I don't lackadaisically dismiss his rationale, including: receipt by Hillary of millions of dollars in donations from special interest groups, her support of the Second Gulf War, and her support of the Panama Free Trade Agreement.

And then there's Hillary's history of scandals, which goes unmentioned by Sanders and Collins.

The FBI investigation of her private email server? Hillary is now calling this a mere "security review."

Honesty from either Hillary or Gail? Don't be expecting it anytime soon.
