Bill Clinton drops a patriot bomb

By Creature

Here's Bill throwing a grenade into a shitstorm as he fantasizes about a McCain/Hillary general election fight. [via Atrios]:

It'd be a great thing if we had an election where you had two people who love this country, who were devoted to the interest of the country and people could actually ask themselves who is right on these issues instead of all this other stuff which always seems to intrude on our politics.

Oh, Bill, you couldn't resist, could you?

Basically, you shouldn't vote for Barack Obama because: 1) he doesn't "love this country," 2) he is not "devoted to the interest of the country," and 3) if you do vote for Obama all this "other stuff" will intrude (like Hillary doesn't bring her own baggage filled with "other stuff").

Fuckin' incredible.

Bill Clinton should know better than impugn Obama's patriotism. This is the same shit the GOP pulled on him in 1992 (and, well, every minute since then). It's ugly and it's not an attack that should come from a former president. Why do I feel like we've been here before?

Update: The Huffington Post has the clip of Bill Clinton in all his mudslinging glory.
