LET'S DO LUNCH--updated
Hey, when it comes to raising money, I guess it doesn't matter who you lunch with. Today, The Hildabeast will be joining Harry Belafonte at a luncheon to raise some cash.
Her core support base will be happy to see "Her Royal C" side by side with the media's latest darling of Bush-bashing. Even Cindy Sheehan might approve.
I wonder if anyone from the MSM will be asking if she's in agreement with Belafonte's recent statements regarding Bush?
"No matter what the greatest tyrant in the world, the greatest terrorist in the world, George W. Bush says,Â Belafonte told Chavez, "weÂre here to tell you: Not hundreds, not thousands, but millions of the American people ... support your revolution.Â
If the question is ever asked, she'll be allowed a canned response with no fear of a follow-up. Since Hillary has the MSM squarely behind her, she's able to get away with appearing with a guy who's committing treason. Just another fundraiser.
Pass the rolls.
UPDATE: As I thought, someone did ask her a question about Harry, but she dodged it with no problem:
Later, during a press conference on health care, Clinton refused to address it. "I'm sorry, this is about Medicare Prescription Part D," she scolded a nosy reporter. "You're welcome to call my office, but I'm talking about something that is literally a life-and-death matter to hundreds of thousands of people who I have the privilege of representing." Read it here.
