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.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.
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 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.
