The fun is already under way at F/R, where imaginary sniper fire-dodger Hillary Clinton’s kiddie human shield photo-op in Bosnia has photo-shoppers (and video mash-up artists) salivating. Join in and I’ll post the best entries.
Here’s a triple-snort-worthy image from Roscoe Karns:
And a related oldie-but-goodie from Registered:
The NYT covers Hillary’s admission of “misspeaking” yesterday in Philly:
As part of her argument that she has the best experience and instincts to deal with a sudden crisis as president, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton recently offered a vivid description of having to run across a tarmac to avoid sniper fire after landing in Bosnia as first lady in 1996.
Yet on Monday, Mrs. Clinton admitted that she “misspoke” about the episode — a concession that came after CBS News showed footage of her walking calmly across the tarmac with her daughter, Chelsea, and being greeted by dignitaries and a child.
The backpedaling was a rare instance of Mrs. Clinton’s acknowledging an error, and she did so on a sensitive issue: She has cited her “strength and experience” since the start of the presidential race, framing her 80 trips abroad as first lady as preparation for dealing with foreign affairs as president. That argument was behind her campaign’s “red phone” commercial, which cast her as best able to handle a crisis.
Mrs. Clinton corrected herself at a meeting with the Philadelphia Daily News editorial board; she did not explain why she had misspoken, but only admitted it and then offered a less dramatic description.
Mrs. Clinton said she had been told “that we had to land a certain way and move quickly because of the threat of sniper fire,” not that actual shots were being fired.
“So I misspoke,” she said.
Let’s fix that:

And for real: Chelsea tells Hillary supporters how she managed to stay alive! Snort.
Update: Satire king Scott Ott at Scrappleface has unearthed the real “raw video and audio” from Hillary’s Tuzla adventure:
Update: Chris Matthews’ leg recounts its own dangerous mission under sniper fire.
Update: Abe Greenwald at Commentary weighs in:
Yes, we understand that people have bad memories. Yes, we are reconciled to the fact that politicians often have conveniently bad memories. But Hillary has an excellent memory, and furthermore she wasn’t lying. This kind of tall tale cut from whole cloth is the special realm of the Clintons, and it is an indication of a dangerously deluded mind. When Hillary recounted her great escape, she believed every word of it.
Update: New excuse…
