'The dog ate my manuscript'

Kathleen Willey: Clintons stole my manuscript

Kathleen Willey, the woman who says Bill Clinton groped her in the Oval Office, claims she was the target of an unusual house burglary over the weekend that nabbed a manuscript for her upcoming book, which promises explosive revelations that could damage Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

Why isn't this in the news? Because it doesn't fit the liberal media template. And because Bill rapped (sic) and molested so many women, the media just claims that they are all liars.

That Bill, not only a sax player, but a rapper, too. But let's look at the and see why it doesn't get a big media ride:

Kathleen Willey: Clintons stole my manuscript

House burglary over weekend targeted copy of book days after details leaked to press

Kathleen Willey, the woman who says Bill Clinton groped her in the Oval Office, claims she was the target of an unusual house burglary over the weekend that nabbed a manuscript for her upcoming book, which promises explosive revelations that could damage Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

If we read a little farther we discover that it wasn't the final version, that the book is already in the process of being printed, and that she has absolutely no evidence that any Clinton had anything to do with the theft, if it in fact occurred.

This smells a lot like an attempt to gin up some free publicity for her book, with the added benefit of smearing the Clintons. Quite a twofer.

Then there's the source for the story -- a right-wing "news" website that, among its claims to fame, published an editorial suggesting that eating soy products at a young age may make children gay.

If anything, the latest wild claims make Willey's earlier "groping" story all the more suspect.
