Hillary: Liar.

I saw that news agencies picked this up, but no one came out and reported what it really is:

Years after alternative media pointed out the virtual impossibility, Sen. Hillary Clinton finally has admitted she was not named for the famous conqueror of Mount Everest, Sir Edmund Hillary.

The New York Times, which repeated the claim as fact in a story just one week ago, reported Sen. Clinton's campaign issued a correction yesterday.

"It was a sweet family story her mother shared to inspire greatness in her daughter, to great results I might add," said spokeswoman Jennifer Hanley.
I'm sorry, but this is lying, plain and simple. And unfortunately for Clinton and her spokeswoman, most American people aren't infatuated with the concept espoused here -- namely, that the ends justify the means.

I sincerely doubt that her mother ever told her anything of the sort. The fact that Hillary would push off her own dishonesty onto her mother is pretty low indeed.

Gimme a break... you waste way too much of your time covering things that are completely irrelevant. If you're upset about hillary clinton telling a lie about where she got her name from and don't blog about any outstanding injustice perpetrated by a republican that actually AFFECTS people, you are sad indeed. It's pathetic that the only thing you can find in the political sphere especially THESE DAYS, is some minor thing about where hillary's name came from.

This is a presidential candidate. This is an example of ongoing, continuous dishonesty. Its also a clear example of glossing over dishonesty.

I don't like it. Show me an example of similar circumstances that I've ignored?

If she's dishonest about her name (and, as k2aggie07 said, blames it on her mom) then how can we trust that she will be honest about anything else?

I honestly don't think it's necessary for me to do that. Just google these: Republican lies, presidential lies, iraq lies, page scandal, rove lies, cheney lies, rumsfeld lies, bush lies... etc, etc. Everytime you type any of these in, I guarantee you'll find literally hundreds of documented examples of lies perpetrated by our current leadership. You don't cover those (you know, the ones that actually tangibly affect american citizens), but you do cover any tiny little example of a dem's contradictions about where her name comes from. If you want me to give you examples I will, but I'd rather not waste ALL THAT SPACE when you can just search for it.

The difference is that those are allegations from conspiracy theorists and partisan lefties. This is an actual lie that she's told many times and finally admitted to.
