Joke Of the Day: Hillary Clinton and Remus Rodham

Given La Hillary's penchant for "misspeaking", I find this joke making the internet rounds rather hilarious. There's another one referencing Gunther Gore, Al's great-great uncle, then again he too likes to embellish the truth. Enjoy!

"Judy Wallman, a professional genealogical researcher, discovered that Hillary Clinton's great-great uncle, Remus Rodham, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889. The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the gallows. On the back of the picture is this inscription:

"Remus Rodham; horse thief, sent to Montana Territorial Prison 1885,
escaped 1887, robbed the Montana Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton
detectives, Remus was convicted and hanged in 1889."

The researcher e-mailed Hillary Clinton for comments. Hillary's staff of
professional image adjusters sent back the following biographical sketch:

Remus Rodham was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory.

His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Montana railroad.

Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to service at a government facility, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad.

In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency.

In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed.

What a great story. Shame it wasn't true. It does highlight the kind of spin Hillary and her staff of professional lairs put on things. are you sure he was killed when the platform collapsed or did he asphyxiate when he was ducking the snipers bullets?
The Clinton's are going to continue to spin history until Bill's tryst with Monica is seen as an invaluable sex education class he gave in the oval orifice.
They are pathological and immune to telling the truth. MUD
