Morton Kondracke tells a BIG FAT LIE
I liked him better when he was the whipping boy on the McLaughlin Group. Now, he's just an dumbass talking head who co-hosts a crappy show on Fox News.
Media Matters does the debunking so I don't have to.
From the July 22 edition of Fox News' The Beltway Boys, featuring Kondracke and co-host Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard:KONDRACKE: Here's "The Buzz," Fred.
You know, Bill Clinton is going to campaign for -- for Joe Lieberman up -- up in Connecticut. And an interesting fact about this relationship -- I mean, Lieberman gets criticized by the left for making that famous speech in which he criticized Bill Clinton's relationship with Monica Lewinsky. But what's not remembered is that in the same speech, Lieberman was against impeaching Clinton on that -- on that account. And that actually helped undercut an effort on the part of some Democrats to -- to go to the White House and ask Clinton to resign. Clinton credits Lieberman with saving -- saving his presidency at that -- at that crucial moment, which is part of why he's going to campaign for him.
Now, Hillary Clinton went out of her way to -- to say that, well, if Lamont wins the primary, she'll be for him. Bill Clinton has not done that. He may have to support Lamont if -- if Lamont wins. But he has not said it in advance.
Clinton is coming to the rescue although Lieberman slammed him over the Monica Lewinsky affair, calling the President's conduct "immoral" and "disgraceful" in a 1998 speech.Morton exposed for a fool yet again. I'm sure John McLaughlin is somewhere goofing on Kondracke over this whopper of a lie. Oh, I can hear John now..."MOOORTON!"
"Bill Clinton holds no grudges," said veteran political consultant Hank Sheinkopf. "He's out helping someone he believes ought to be reelected."
Still, Clinton's support could be a one-shot deal: If Lieberman loses the primary, Clinton will go with Lamont.
The former President thinks Lieberman, whom he has known for 30 years, "has been a good senator," said Clinton spokesman Jay Carson.
"However, he respects the primary process and will support the candidate that wins the Democratic primary," Carson said.
