I'M DONATING THIS POST (for the tax deduction)

Hillary Clinton, who, along with the other Democratic hopefuls, makes a cottage industry of slamming evil drug companies, “big oil” and exploitive defense contractors, has just sold some of her and Bill’s stocks as part of a liquidation of their blind trust under instructions from the Office of Government Ethics, according to the AP. Wait a minute, doesn’t the Office of Government Ethics sound a bit like an oxymoron?

Anyway, among the stocks they sold, so as not to be embarrassed during the upcoming presidential election, were; General Electric and Raytheon (defense); Biogen Idec, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline and Amgen (drugs); and Exxon Mobil and BP Amoco (Big oil).

They also held stock worth $100,000-$250,000 in NewsCorp, parent company of Fox News, where she and other Democrats refuse to debate because they perceive Fox as biased against them.

Smell any hypocrisy yet?

Remember last year when the Clinton campaign returned a $5,000 contribution to Wal-Mart’s Political Action Committee “because of serious differences with current company practices?” Well, they also held stock in Wal-Mart and Wal-Mart de Mexico.

The disclosure document also revealed that folksy, humble, homeboy Bill, made $16 million dollars in speaking fees in the past 17 months.

The former president’s spokesman, Jay Carson, said that Bill typically “donates” millions of dollars in free speeches to charities. Do you think you could get away with calling your presence a “donation” just because you didn’t charge for it? If I could do that, I’d be in as low a tax bracket as the Clintons.

The Clintons are truly a comedy act still unfolding one day at a time.
