Drunk on Power
The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard reports that Virginia’s Gov. Terry McAuliffe, whom he calls “Hillary Clinton’s biggest cheerleader,” put his name to a campaign email that begins:
No one’s tougher. No one’s smarter. No one has a better command of the issues. And, from personal experience, no one’s more fun to throw back a cocktail with.
Really? No one is more fun to drink with than Mrs. Clinton? This is a good example of liberal media bias. If someone made the same claim with equal plausibility about a Republican, the “fact checkers” would be all over it.
