Post Staff Report

September 20, 2007 -- Hillary Clinton pulled out her light saber last night at a fundraiser in New York as she called Vice President Dick Cheney "Darth Vader."

"Vice President [Dick] Cheney came up to see the Republicans yesterday. You can always tell when the Republicans are getting restless, because the Vice President’s motorcade pulls into the Capitol, and Darth Vader emerges," Clinton said in Manhattan's Town Hall near Times Square.

Clinton, in a conversation with Tom Vilsack and Wesley Clark, said, when it comes to strategy for the war in Iraq, "I'm not invited to their meetings and I don't know what he says or does.

"But all the brave talk about bringing our troops home, and setting deadlines, and getting out by a certain date just dissipated," the presidential candidate said.

She then took a jab at President Bush's global warming policy:

"It will be refreshing, I think, to have a president who will actually utter the words 'global warming.'"

Vilsack, a top advisor to Clinton, also raised the stakes for GOP rival Rudy Giuliani, saying his stormy personal life will be fair game should he win the Republican nomination for president.

"There's a lot that the rest of the country is going to get to know about Mayor Giuliani that the folks in New York City know," Vilsack said.

"I can't even get into the number of marriages and the fact that his children - the relationship he has with his children - and what kind of circumstances New York was in before Sept. 11," Vilsack said during an interview on NY1 last night.

"There are lot of issues involving Mayor Giuliani . . . He's got a very interesting past."

The Clinton campaign's mudslinging against Giuliani's personal life is surprising, given the New York senator's struggles with her own marriage to philandering former President Bill Clinton, and other White House scandals.

The Giuliani campaign declined comment.

Culture of Corruption Continues!

"The Conservative Media" website treats us to a list of the Republican's Scandals for 2007 (sans Bush & Cheney's continued war crimes & treason). We've included a sampling of the Republican's Culture of Corruption here, but it's definitely worth checking out the full article. You may want to sit down though... this is gonna take a while!

"One of the main reason Republicans were turned out of power in 2006 and lost control of both the U.S. House and Senate was because of their culture of corruption. Republicans vowed that would end after the scandal-filled 2006 that saw scandals like Mark Foley, Jack Abramoff, Bob Ney and Jack Abramoff just to name a few.
