On Saturday Hillary set her sights on Fred Thompson. This is yet more good news for Fredheads that even Hillary recognizes who her competition is and is taking preemptive moves:

“I was appalled when one of the people running for or about to run for the Republican nomination talked about Cuban refugees as potential terrorists,” Clinton told Hispanic elected officials. “Apparently he doesn’t have a lot of experience in Florida or anywhere else, and doesn’t know a lot of Cuban-Americans.”

Apparently Mrs. Clinton took issue with comments made on Thompson’s website, Imwithfred.com:

It seems to me that few Americans understand the threat that the illegal entry by Cuban spies represents to our country, though Cuban-Americans have never forgotten or stopped pointing it out. Ambassador Otto Reich, the former Assistant Secretary of State for the Western Hemisphere has called Castro’s efforts to penetrate U.S. intelligence networks “relentless.”

Hillary made the comments during a forum she was attending at The Magic Kingdom (Yes, you read that correctly). Just before that event she spoke at a Miami fundraiser, saying “after eight years of the Bush administration, we are going to be shocked by what we find. Somebody said to me the other day if there was ever a time for a woman president it’s now because we’re going to have to do a lot of cleaning.”

Is she serious? So much for not throwing stones in glass houses. Someone needs to remind her what the Bush administration found after her husband left the White House. From Truth or Fiction:

On June 3, 2001 The Washington Post quoted Fleischer as saying that the damage included the removal of the letter “W” from 100 computer keyboards, five missing brass nameplates with the presidential seal on them, 75 telephones with cover plates missing or apparently intentionally plugged into the wrong wall outlets, six fax machines relocated in the same way, ten cut phone lines, two historic door knobs missing, overturned desks and furniture in about 20 percent of the offices, obscene graffiti in six offices, and eight 14-foot loads of usable office supplies recovered from the trash. According to Fleischer, there was one incident in the White House itself, a photocopy machine that had copies of naked people hidden in the paper tray so they would come out from time to time with other copies.

Or perhaps she expects to be cleaning up after a fury of last minute pardons similar to the ones granted in the closing days of the Clinton administration. Drug dealers, money launderers, and embezzlers can make quite a mess. See the full list here. If it gets too much to handle there’s always Molly Maid – the Spring cleaning experts!
