State Dept. Angry “Dr. Seuss Denial” of Clinton VP Meeting; Expanded
Wow, Hillary Clinton’s spokesperson Phillipe Reines went to extraordinary lengths to fully deny the story that she and Valerie Jarret had met for lunch to discuss possibly replacing Biden as Vice President candidate. His angry email denial to the Weekly Standard tried to emulate a Dr. Seuss rhyme, but didn’t quite make it, so I thought I’d help him out some [original in quotes]:
You say that Hillary met Valerie,
We say this person she did not see.
You say we discussed being VP
Again we say this could not be!
“This did not happen” any place
We not see her frowning face
“They did not have lunch” any where
They did not argue, bicker, glare!
“They did not have any meal” there
They never pulled each others’ hair!
“They did not meet this month” at all,
They did not wail, or caterwaul!
“They did not meet last month” or next,
They didn’t afterward angrily text!
“They did not meet in 2012”
They were not dressed as orcs or elves!
“They did not meet in” ‘11, ‘10, or ’09,
There was no screaming, screech or cry!
“This is not happening” tomorrow or today,
Please stop demanding proof, ok?!
“Truth is that Ed Klein is an idiot with not a shred of credibility”
“Truth is that Ed Klein’s motto is ‘If at first you don’t succeed, lie lie again.'”
To insult to injury:
In the same email chain, National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor adds, “Happening now in Dan’s cubicle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjoMQJf5vKI.”
This was in reference to Dan Halper, reporter at the Weekly Standard. This is so hilarious I might just draw some Seuss-style cartoons for it…
