See one of the great political spoofs at the following link:
Huma Abedin is Hillary Clinton’s very attractive female aide, confidant, and with her nearly 24/7. For those who can phone Hillary directly, they know that no matter the hour, day or night, Huma will answer the phone. If she judges your call to be sufficiently important, Hillary will be on the phone minutes, if not seconds later, even at 2:00 am. Huma is the subject of rumours from both the right and LEFT. Yes, even the left. There are many Hillary-haters on the left also. Web site WorldNetDaily had a commentary about how the Clintons might undo John McCain, but went on to speculate that McCain supporters would fight back by outing Hillary’s bisexual, lesbian affair with Huma.
This story just won’t go away, that Larry Flynt has the dirt on a sitting Senator in a lesbian relationship. Apparently Larry keeps saying he has the story and plans to go to press. The LA Times is supposed to have the story also.
Does anyone know if this story has leggs, or is it just another net rumor?
Hillary Clinton lesbian gossip gets some fresh fuel over her stunning “traveling” chief-of-staff Huma Abedin.
Rumors have been circulating…that Hillary Clinton is having a lesbian affair. Her alleged paramour: a beautiful aide named Huma Abedin. As you can see from the photo, if Hillary is having an affair with Abedin it would not be evidence of her lesbianism as much as of her common sense and sound judgment.The hard-to-credit rumor of Hillary’s Sapphic excursions is being stoked by right-wing bloggers. They suggest that this supposed romance shows the candidate is not only a lesbian but consorting with terrorists, given that the Michigan-born Abedin is reportedly from a family brimming with known Muslims.
If Dan Rather had reported the Hillary & Huma lesbian lover affair, it would sound something like this, “The facts are false, but the story is true”, sort of like his story on Bush’s National Guard service.Is there a Democratic sex “scandal”–no matter how bogus–that Mickey Kaus won’t promote? Today he’s plugging (albeit in a somewhat passive aggressive fashion) the ridiculous rumor that Hillary Clinton is the lesbian lover of her aide Huma Abedin. Here’s my favorite bit of Kausian sophistry:Let’s assume what is likely to be the case–that the Huma rumor is a) unprovable if true and b) un-disprovable if untrue. Under the old rules that means it would never be proved and would probably never surface. If it did surface –say because it was the subject of vicious campaign push-polling–a simple denial by both parties and it would be semi-officially “false.” In the new Webby post-Lewinsky world it’s more likely to surface, which makes the subsequent denial all the more important. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not impossible to issue a denial so convincing that even gossip-addicted bloggers drop a juicy rumor. (Here’s an example.) The trouble for Hillary is that when it comes to sex rumors she and her husband (unlike, say, John Edwards and his wife) have no credibility. They threw that away when the philandering charges they righteously denounced in 1992 and 1998 turned out to be basically true.
But it’s not just Republicans who are pushing the story. Will Folks, a well-known blogger in South Carolina, reported yesterday that he’d “heard from sources at rival Democratic presidential campaigns who claim that they ‘know it to be true’ that Hill and Huma are romantically-involved.” I called Folks, and he said that two different Democratic campaigns had told him about the alleged affair, but neither had “presented anything remotely resembling proof.” Folks said he couldn’t identify which campaigns were spreading the story, so I called Rod Shealy, a top GOP consultant. Shealy told me he had no idea of who was talking up the story—but that the only Democrats with active staffs and organizations in South Carolina were Barack Obama, John Edwards, and Bill Richardson. (On an entirely separate note, Shealy had an interesting observation about Ron Paul’s stunning announcement that he had raised several million dollars in a single day. “That shows that his supporters are not just fringe loonies,” he said. “These are people with checking accounts.”)
Here’s a smapling of what bloggers are saying about Hillary’s lesbian affair, rumors of which go back to Arkansas when it was reported that Vince Foster covered for her at the Rose Law Firm, then again at the White House.
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton was said to have a lesbian relationship with her aide, Huma Abedin.
Aide Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton Lesbian Love Affair Rumors Explode So is happily Hillary hopping in the sack with Muslim female aide Huma Abedin? My guess is yes. Note the following blog entries and stories that have been following the story:Thursday, November 01, 2007 Hillary’s Lesbian Affair with Muslim Aide? I saw this tease tease teaser at Ace yesterday (no not this one) and knew it was just a matter of time before the bomb dropped. A sex scandal (woo hoo) of a top presidential candidate. Sounds salacious. Well it is. Check this out. No, no not this sex scandal, this one.This is from Michael Musto. I used to read him religiously when he was at Paper a zillion lifetimes ago — his stuff is legit. Nothing has been confirmed (!) but this is as juicy as juicy gets in the sordid sex scandal department. Who’d a thunk that Hiillary could have out sex scandaled the old hound dog. Ouch! Looks like Obama ’08. Boy those Democrats sure have been busy.And if anyone would know, wouldn’t it be the king – er, queen – of the Village Voice:“As I recently said on Monica Crowley’s radio show, whisper campaigns are claiming that is Gayle King-ing her aide de camp, the glamorous Huma Abedin, an Indian/Pakistani goddess from Kalamazoo, Michigan.“In other words, Hillary may be putting Huma out there in the press and purposely making her more visible as a pre-emptive strike that amounts to her hiding in plain sight. This way, no can later say, “Who is this gorgeous babe who spends so much intimate time with Hillary that the Observer called her Hill’s ‘body person’? Was Gennifer Flowers’ book right about Hillary’s sexual taste?”And does either of this couple have the balls to bottom?”http://www.postchronicle.com/news/original/article_212113634.shtmlIs Hillary GAYLE KING-ing Huma Abedin?As I recently said on MONICA CROWLEY’s radio show, whisper campaigns are claiming that HILLARY CLINTON is GAYLE KING–ing her aide de camp, the glamorous HUMA ABEDIN, an Indian/Pakistani goddess from Kalamazoo, Michigan. In other words, Hillary may be putting Huma out there in the press and purposely making her more visible as a pre-emptive strike that amounts to her hiding in plain sight. This way, no Republican can later say, “Who is this gorgeous babe who spends so much intimate time with Hillary that the Observer called her Hill’s ‘body person’? Was GENNIFER FLOWERS’s book right about Hillary’s sexual taste?” And does either of this couple have the balls to bottom?BigHeadDC posts a picture of “Abedin trailing Clinton and gay talk show host Ellen DeGeneres during a recent “girl’s only” trip to NYC.”We’re still a bit incredulous on this one, but a top level U.S. Department of Justice official is telling Big Head DC that Michael Musto’s rumor about Hillary Clinton fooling around with one of her top female aides Huma Abedin is based in reality!“I am close enough to Hillary and Huma to tell you that this ‘rumor’ is true,” the official says. “It is well known inside her campaign that Hillary and Huma are an item.
And this from the Telegraph, Mrs Clinton might be the frontrunner in the polls, but almost everywhere we went people questioned her candidacy. Many stated bluntly that they did not want a woman in charge. “She couldn’t keep her own home together, so how can we trust her to manage America?” asked Micki Martinson, a housewife in Somerset, Pennsylvania. While we found many people who hated Mrs Clinton, those who loved her were few and far between. “I’m always amazed how we can screw things up,” said Steve Ayers, a coffee-shop owner in Hannibal. “Maybe the way we screw it up this time is by nominating Hillary – across the Midwest that would be the only way of unifying Republicans.”Although Mr Clinton is no longer the villain he was for many in the late 1990s, there was precious little evidence of nostalgia for the Clinton years – another alarm bell for the Hillary campaign.Apart from the war on terror, the issue we were confronted by again and again was illegal immigration – a preoccupation of Democratic as well as Republican voters. “We did everything legally and so should they,” said Ljiljana Zezelj, 38, a new citizen from Croatia. “Nothing will work in this country until we secure our borders,” said Laura Dietz, a retiree in Phoenix, Arizona.Is this what the polls are NOT telling us?http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml;jsessionid=HXOG5ZDB4KFEHQFIQMFSFGGAVCBQ0IV0?xml=/news/2007/11/24/wamerica124.xml&page=2
Drudgereport DON'T GO THERE: BRIT PAPER STARTS 'UGLIEST MONTH'
Sun Nov 25 2007 20:45:12 ETThe TIMES of London starts 'The Ugliest Month' with a full page photo takeout on Hillary Clinton and her beautiful aide.
"Hillary Clinton has been accused of having an affair with Huma Abedin," reads the caption.
The splash stunned British readers and angered campaign insiders.
"This does not even qualify as tabloid trash... it's ridiculous and reckless," a Hillary confidante explained over the weekend.
The paper made no claims to knowing the truth of the relationship between Hillary and Huma, in its story headlined: "Snarls, smears and innuendo as attack dogs get ready for the fray." Matt Drudge promises more . . . Is this the “Bombshell”? Will another Clinton say, "I did not have sex with that woman . . ."
