Hillary Clinton will have a hard time triangulating her way out of the thanks the Daily Kos gave her for suggesting that General David Petraeus was a liar. There is no doubt about their appreciation of her "services" as can be seen in the very title of the Daily Kos thread, "Thank you Hillary for calling Petraeus a liar!" Appreciation for the "services" rendered by Hillary was duly noted by Daily Kos blogger, gopher747:
Thank you Hillary for calling out Petraeus for what he is, a liar and a distorter of facts.
While I still prefer an Edwards/Obama ticket, I just wanted to show some progressive blogosphere love here for Hillary for her calling a spade a spade here, and subsequently setting the right wing howling.
The same thanks applies to MoveOn, for their not allowing Petraeus to parade around like some untouchable holy priest without being called on his crap.
After showing some "progressive love" for Hillary, this Daily Kos blogger goes on to smear Petraeus:
Petraeus is trying to help the Bushies hide their war crimes and war lies behind Petraeus's uniform, a uniform which Petraeus has now disgraced by his working most every MSM venue like a champion media whore.
Other Daily Kos bloggers also weighed in on this thread showing their love for Hillary with these comments:
Hillary went a LOT further than Edwards or Obama did in calling out Petraeus on his crap. And she did it with class (she did it much better than MoveOn did.) And she deserves some love for it!
Hillary called Petraeus a liar, in a classy way, and the proof of the pudding is that Rudy is now foaming at the mouth about it. What more do you want?
More of this "strange new respect" for Hillary by the Daily Kos bloggers can be seen at the DUmmie FUnnies.
