Video: Claire McCaskill, who doesn’t want Bill Clinton near her daughter, angry at Rand Paul for insulting Bill Clinton

posted at 6:41 pm on January 28, 2014 by Allahpundit

Actually, she claims she’s angry at him for insulting Hillary by supposedly implying that Hillary’s somehow responsible for Bill’s lechery in the Oval Office. But that’s not what Paul’s saying. Hillary’s blameless for that, he reiterated today. The reason he brought up l’affaire Lewinsky this weekend is because, like every other Republican in America, he’s sick of being lectured on gender sensitivity by cretins who’ve spent decades apologizing for the Clenis and Ted Kennedy. His attack was an attack on the Democratic Party, not on Hillary specifically. The war on women garbage isn’t going to end, so he feels he has no choice but to use a blunt rhetorical object to back Democrats off. Here’s a nice swing: “I think that one of the things that have moved forward, one of the things that was rotten about the old patriarchal system we did have, was that bosses took advantage of young women in the workplace.”

What makes this blogworthy and considerably more irritating than Ruth Marcus’s giggling about “thong-showing” yesterday is that McCaskill herself once took a harder shot at Bill Clinton than Paul did. Remember this golden moment from “Meet the Press” when she was first running for Senate? That was the first strike against her in Clintonworld. Strike two came when she endorsed Obama for president over Hillary in 2008, a crucial bit of big-name support that helped establish him as a serious contender. She’s on the enemies list now and she knows it — a bad place to be with the Clintons poised to return to power in 2016 — so she’s decided she’s going to go all out to get back in the queen’s good graces. The Hill has a story out today noting that 57 congressional Democrats have now signaled that they support Hillary in 2016. That’s nothing: McCaskill formerly endorsed her back in June of last year, just eight months after Obama’s reelection. Now, to further make amends, she’s decided she’s going to play attack dog for Hillary on “war on women” crapola. Needless to say, if she persists in this role, she should be reminded of her bon mot about Bill and her daughter at every opportunity. She’s free to be an ass-kissing toady for Democratic royalty but she’s not free to do it without her old comments being mentioned.

Oh, she also claimed today that her mother formally apologized to her on behalf of her generation for not ending the debate over birth-control — on her deathbed.

Democrats are so good a doublespeak.

The real question is:

Do we want a bitter battered wife as President of the USA?

Thank you Todd Akin and Mike Huckabee. *SMH*

I was against leaving my daughter alone with Bill Clinton before I was in favor of doing so.

Like the rest of the liberals; if it weren’t for hypocrisy, McCaskill wouldn’t have anything at all.

see you all in the open thread later tonight…
*clink* all around

everyone needs an adult beverage before they tune in…God Bless those who will actually listen to it…we truly appreciate you!!

There really is no limit to the depths of depravity of the modern elected democrat.

This woman is just a filthy harlot.

Murphy9 on January 28, 2014 at 6:49 PM

Why do liberals always think they can speak for most women?

HellCat on January 28, 2014 at 6:52 PM

Crack wh*res have more morals than that woman.

…I think English…might be her second language!

She needs to speak to the women in my family.

DDay on January 28, 2014 at 7:03 PM

Oh, she also claimed today that her mother formally apologized to her on behalf of her generation for not ending the debate over birth-control — on her deathbed.

I’m sure everyone on their deathbed is thinking about birth-control.

FTDs. Dems: raping slaves, interns and taxpayers’ wallets for 185 years.

Her Mother should have apologized to the World for having given birth to this nut…

If Republicans are going to provoke outrageous outrage and a no-win media firestorm showing how out of touch they are, this is a *much* better topic than parsing abortion and rape.

The Santorum Diaries scare the average low-information woman and d-bag beta male. This is just the media attacking Republicans as usual, and all the “speaking as a woman”s in the world isn’t going to galvanize liberals or confuse LIVs when the topic is Bubba.

Filner, Weiner, John Edwards, Spitzer – we can keep this going all year.

HitNRun on January 28, 2014 at 7:12 PM

Claire who ?

listens2glenn on January 28, 2014 at 7:14 PM

Thanks Aikens….

Gotta luv women defending a serial sexual predator… don’t cha know they all ’bout protecting women.

donabernathy on January 28, 2014 at 7:17 PM

The issue is the Democrats’ meme about the GOP “war on women.” There is no such war, whereas the Dems have been huge hypocrites toward women. Their concept of women’s rights consists solely of protection of abortion. McCaskill’s comments are just more political posturing.

flataffect on January 28, 2014 at 7:20 PM

Thanks Aikens….

sandee on January 28, 2014 at 7:16 PM

Claude or Clay?

Lanceman on January 28, 2014 at 7:22 PM

I hope I have enough sense not to tell my children I have reproductive regrets during our last moments together.

HellCat on January 28, 2014 at 7:23 PM

I know that she don’t speaks for my wife.

Does she speak for our female friends here on HA?

I doubt it.

ORrighty on January 28, 2014 at 8:09 PM

With demoncRats hypocrisy knows no bounds…

Doomsday on January 28, 2014 at 8:10 PM

Claire is nothing, if not a harlot. She also s/b in jail, not in the senate.

Schadenfreude on January 28, 2014 at 8:16 PM

Allah, Paul did not bring it up. David Gregory asked Paul a question about a comment Rand’s wife made during an interview with Vogue.

She said “Bill Clinton’s relationship with Monica Lewinsky should complicate his return to the White House, even as first spouse. I would say his behavior was predatory, offensive to women.”

Gregory asked him if he thinks that “will be fair game and an appropriate part of a campaign” against Hillary.

That is a trap question: “Was your wife out of line?” What was Paul supposed to say?

kcewa on January 28, 2014 at 8:22 PM

She’s trying to make amends for throwing Hillary under the bus in favor of The One in 2008. It won’t work, of course. The Clintons have a very long memory and have raised holding a grudge to an art form.

I can’t stand McCaskill. And to think she had one-and-a-half feet out of the Capitol door before Aiken started mouthing off about women’s bodies and abortion.

Meredith on January 28, 2014 at 9:43 PM

I’m not sure what her daughter looks like, but I’m pretty sure Claire doesn’t have to worry about being around Bill Clinton. Hillary? Well, I’m not quite as sure.

OK. But, for argument’s sake, picture Bill as the Most Interesting Man Alive

I guess Claire could be in trouble. (Sorry. This seems to happen after too many margaritas.)

NoPain on January 28, 2014 at 10:08 PM

Using the WAR on Women mantra,

In a war, people die. Mary Jo Kopechne died.

And any opportunity or plan to save her was “aborted.”

Which makes her death ok to so many I guess? You see, Ted simply made a “choice to abort.” So its all good.

jjjdad on January 28, 2014 at 10:12 PM

As a resident of Missouri, I want to tell my fellow citizens how sorry I am this… “person” from my state is allowed to have anything to do with lawmaking for the country.

KCsecurity1976 on January 29, 2014 at 12:04 AM

And to think that she would have been retired if Aikin hadn’t been such a tool.

GeeWhiz on January 29, 2014 at 12:09 AM

That McCaskill sure is a looker.

(Not an attack on women but just McCaskill.)

Sherman1864 on January 29, 2014 at 4:02 AM

Claire is the Charlie Brown of Missouri politics, swinging and missing at rhetorical footballs from the day she first ran for office.

MTF on January 29, 2014 at 6:11 AM

SO the good senator’s mother’s last words were concern about the birth control debate? If they werent in power ready to screw our lives at every turn, Democrats would make great fictional story tellers.

stop2think on January 29, 2014 at 6:59 AM

Liberals are such deceitful hypocrites they’ll tell you that the Bible and “Mien Kamp” were authored by the same person. But then, and they’ll use either, to bring about the results called for in the Communist Manifesto.

Don L on January 29, 2014 at 7:13 AM

OmahaConservative on January 28, 2014 at 6:44 PM

Hillary with a southern drawl?

Don L on January 29, 2014 at 7:14 AM

Oh, she also claimed today that her mother formally apologized to her on behalf of her generation for not ending the debate over birth-control — on her deathbed.

That’s probably what Claire heard, but that’s not what she said.

She looked at her daughter and then said, “I’m so sorry… I should have used birth control.”

makattak on January 29, 2014 at 9:34 AM

Speak only for yourself and don’t try to include all women in your fantasy world. We know what a letch the former president is and you can’t change his image with your comments. We’re now finding out just how low a dem will go to retain ‘their seat’ by bringing up supposed words from a dying mother. Really!

Kissmygrits on January 29, 2014 at 9:36 AM

Claire McCaskill is a perfect example for the feminist’s of why abortion needs to kept legal.

Wade on January 29, 2014 at 4:28 PM

Claire: how is “insulting Bill Clinton” even possible???

Claire: You are once again proving yourself to be a knee-jerk far-left liberal masquerading as a representative of the people.
