Hillary Clinton’s Challenger Puffed Up Resume?

You know, it’s perfectly understandable.

How could anyone compete with a woman who has been the wife of the Governor of Arkansas andthe wife of the President of the US?

That’s a very intimidating CV.

From Hillary’s cringing lickspittles at the DNC’s Associated Press:

Resume of Clinton Challenger Questioned

ALBANY, N.Y. – A former Pentagon official seeking the Republican nomination to run against Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton this year may have puffed up her resume.

The resume said Kathleen Troia "KT" McFarland drafted President Reagan’s 1983 Star Wars speech and was the Pentagon’s highest-ranking woman at the time.

But The New York Times, quoting Reagan administration and Pentagon officials from the era, reported Thursday that the part of Reagan’s speech on the Strategic Defense Initiative was written by other aides. McFarland had worked on other sections of the speech, the Times reported.

The Times also noted that McFarland was a deputy assistant secretary of defense for public affairs, a policy position. Two other women at the Pentagon were deputy undersecretaries, a higher rank, in administrative jobs.

McFarland spokesman William O’Reilly acknowledged other officials wrote the "Star Wars" portion of the speech but said Reagan had called to thank her for working on the address. That call will be mentioned in campaign material, he said.

As for McFarland’s rank, she "effectively was the highest-ranking woman at the Pentagon because she was at the core of the Defense Department policy team," O’Reilly said. He said the word "policy" will be added to her job description on all materials.

Democrats, already sniping at McFarland for not voting in some elections, quickly pounced on the report.

"In all fairness, when Ms. McFarland said she wrote Star Wars, perhaps she meant the George Lucas film," said Blake Zeff, a state Democratic Party spokesman.

I hope nobody questions Hillary’s doing free legal work for murderous Black Panthers. And that was just at the start of her brilliant career.

She’s gone downhill ever since.

In all fairness, when Ms. McFarland said she wrote Star Wars, perhaps she meant the George Lucas film," said Blake Zeff, a state Democratic Party spokesman.

What a burn!

I bet Hillary’s namesake, Sir Edmund, would really get a kick out of hearing about such a whopper.
