(Hey, if they can malign “Global Warming Skeptics” as shills for Big Oil, I can certainly do the same– tongue in cheek, of course.)
Joe Klein is upset at Matt Drudge, because Matt Drudge is much better looking. That and because Drudge ran a splash on the Drudge Report about Hillary. Let Joe Klein say it (boldface mine):
I know this is old news, but this guy is shameless. The headline, with a photo of a three-quarters crazed Hillary, is HEALTH INSURANCE PROOF REQUIRED FOR WORK but the linked story says this:
At this point, we don’t have anything punitive that we have proposed,” the presidential candidate said in an interview with The Associated Press. “We’re providing incentives and tax credits which we think will be very attractive to the vast majority of Americans.”
She said she could envision a day when “you have to show proof to your employer that you’re insured as a part of the job interview — like when your kid goes to school and has to show proof of vaccination,” but said such details would be worked out through negotiations with Congress.
How stupid does he think we are? Answer: Extremely dumbolic.
So, according to Joe, Drudge is shameless for accurately quoting Hillary? Look, if Hillary says she “envisions a world” where an employer needs to know his employee is insured before even offering the job, then doesn’t that mean that’s the program she wants in place? Why think anything else?
Oh, because you’re a shill for Clinton.
