Hillary Clinton laughs when she lies--the Colombia episode
You know how Hillary Clinton always laughs to get away from a question she doesn't want to answer? Well, check out the Joker-like performance when she's asked about possible conflicts of interest in her position on Colombia:
I've thought Hillary was lying on this issue ever since she came out opposed to it when her husband Bill is for it. This strikes me as exactly the kind of having-it-both-ways that Obama called her on in Cleveland--you can't get the credit for Bill's presidency if you're not willing to take responsibility for what was wrong with it. This is also why I'm beginning to think it's not inappopriate for Chelsea Clinton to be repeatedly asked about Monica Lewinsky. There are a lot of unresolved issues from the first eight years of Clinton presidency that need to be resolved before we sign up for another four.
