First the LA Times scoops the NYT in its own back yard on illegal donations to Hillary’s campaign.
Now they’re sitting on a sex scandal story, “all wrapped up” and ready to go, dealing with one of the candidates. Everyone writing about Presidential politics knows about it, but they’re all being coy, so you’re supposed to glean clues by observing the shifts in the jots and tittles of their writings about the various contenders.
I’ll cut it short for you —
looks like the candidate affected is Hillary, and the perpetrator’s good ol’ Bill.
Tell ya what, this isn’t the LA Times I remember from law school. Good stuff.
UPDATE: Ace, for one, is skeptical.
Then there’s this, from a freeper thread:
Larry Flynt, editor and publisher of Hustler magazine, just told FOX Business Networkâ€™s Neil Cavuto that heâ€™s â€œhoping to expose a bombshellâ€ that will stand â€œWashington and the country on its head.â€ Within the next week or two, he says his magazine will expose a sex scandal of huge proportions involving a prominent United States Senator. Flynt refused to comment on the Senatorâ€™s political affiliation, but alluded that he or she is a Republican.
My, my. Who will it be? More to the point, will we, the people, give a rat’s ass?
UPDATE ON THE UPDATE: Apparently it’s based on activity from the ’80s, and involves a marriage. Well, I suppose the Clintons are still in the running, but you’ve got to add some others too. FDT? McCain? Obama? (Was Obama even married in the ’80s?) Good heavens, the possibilities are pretty much endless at this point. But if it involves a Senator, that eliminates Rudy and Mitt. And Rosenbaum (at the first link) specifically says it’s not Edwards.
