"There is nothing more exhilarating than to be shot at without result."

That's a quote from Winston Churchill, a man George Bush compares himself to even though the only shot W's ever heard was the sound of Jack splashing in a glass.

Now, Hillary and W have something other than the Iraq misadventure in common. They both have bullshit on their boots.

Hillary has told the story over and over, how she had to duck and run from sniper fire in Bosnia. She tells it and laughs, dismissing the incident as just another example of her experience, the kind of pluck that makes her ready to rock "on day one."

Except, it's not true.

The first person to call her on it was Sinbad. Fucking Sinbad. You know you're in trouble when Sinbad drops a dime on your wide ass.

Hillary now says in an interview with our old friend Richard Mellon Scaife, the man who gave us Troopergate, Ann Coulter and the grand Vince Foster Murder Conspiracy, that she "misspoke" and she was "sleep-deprived" and she made a mistake, and then added "It proves I'm human, which you know, for some people, is a revelation. "

No, Hillary. If you ever uttered a genuine, untested syllable, that would be a revelation.

Hubris, deceit, condescension and arrogance. After 8 years, I think I want something different in our next Commander in Chief. But then, I've always been a dreamer.

UPDATE: Scott Bateman of Video Dog has just the right clip. It's amazing how detailed Hillary gets when she misspeaks.

Sinbad?! The comedian? Dude.

There's a big difference between making a mistake and just making shit up.

It's just pure stupidity to make up a story when there's video. I mean, come on...

she was "sleep-deprived" and she made a mistake,

Kinda puts that whole 3 AM phone ringing ad in a whole new perspective, don't it?
