Clinton Raped Hillary And Other Absurd Tales [Ace]

John from Wuzzadem expressed my thoughts well on this yesterday. This is absurd.

Captain Ed has more to say, too:

Someone needs to ask Ed Klein why he felt it necessary to include this accusation as part of his biography. It's hardly germane to her politics, or to her life in politics. It's the kind of tawdry Weekly World News gossip/hit piece that serves no purpose but character assassination. It also makes Hillary into a victim, this time almost certainly for real -- not of this purported rape, but of Klein's base attack.

If this is the level of professionalism we can expect from former Newsweek editors, small wonder we end up with Qu'ran-flushing frauds from the magazine now. Whether Ed Klein absorbed the Newsweek standards for sourcing and newsworthiness during his tenure or set those standards himself, the two are not unrelated. And regardless of whether Hillary or the Bush administration gets targeted by these reckless, irresponsible, and repulsive attacks, the public should respond by denying them their payday.

And I would add further that if right-wingers want to be taken seriously, they should either treat this as the trash it is or just not mention it all. Anyone who seriously attempts to make some sort of Bill-raped-Hillary claim is just asking for the dunce cap.
