"So, I misspoke."

Managing to shoot herself in the foot over the sniper fire story in war torn Bosnia, Hillary Clinton has killed her candidacy. It's a done deal! In an attempt to present herself as an experienced presidential candidate, she gild the lily for the last time, and Humpty Dumpty can't be put together again. Never. And her reaction?

"Misspoke!" So what shrug. Next subject: Condemn Barack Obama's retired pastor Jeremiah Wright for his "misspoke" sermons.

Hold it right there, tootsie. Jeremiah Wright isn't running for President. Back it up again to the tarmac in Bosnia. Even the word "misspoke" is a misspoke. Can't the dame say, "I lied"? It isn't as though Hillary confused some obscure date like 1492 with 1493, or repeated the same paragraph while giving a speech in Peoria, Hillary Rodham Clinton gave a five minute description that had everything in it but verbal sound effects: hand motions, ducking head, nodding to herself and the big smile.

Not to suggest Hillary is psychotic, but that big smile? While describing a life threatening experience? That should have been more of a clue than the archived video. She repeated the story on several occasions, last time on St. Patrick's day while wearing a bright green shamrock covered neck scarf. As though the St Patrick's Day Massacre wasn't bad enough, Hillary's sniper story fades his green.

Embarrassed party elders are suggesting she withdraw because of the numbers, but the lollapalooza, self-confessed "I'm a liar" sniper fire whopper of a story is the more appropriate reason. Similar to a death sentence, her nomination would give the Bush White House another 8 years, and the Democratic Party cannot nominate a wounded candidate. Hillary should be throwing in the towel soon, but in her case it will probably be one of those tired pant suits.

Knowing of the Bosnia sniper fire fiction, story/hallucination, lie, how could a head of state sit across from her during a conference and not question: "Can she be trusted, is she all there today, or should we strap her into a lie detector?"

Seems like teacher's pet got found out.
