The Ten Dumbest Things Hillary Clinton Has Ever Said

When Hillary Clinton was still the front-runner for the Democratic nomination, a JJ reader wrote to say that I had a "Ten Dumbest Things George W. Bush has said" item (alas, I actually have two! [here and here.] And -- sigh they overlap a bit), so why didn't I have one for Hillary? He included the first one (just below) as an example.

So since then I've been keeping my eyes open for quotes, and now that I have 10 of them, it's time.

9 (tie). "If I didn't kick his ass every day, he wouldn't be worth anything." --Hillary on Bill in general.

7. "The great story here for anybody willing to find it, write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president." --Hillary, denying that there was anything truthful about what became "fornigate".

6. "I have to admit that a good deal of what my husband and I have learned (about Islam) has come from my daughter. (As) some of you who are our friends know, she (Chelsea) took a course last year in Islamic history." --Hillary on her knowledge of Islam.

We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." --Hillary explaining her opposition to Bush's tax cut.

3. "F--k off! It's enough that I have to see you shit-kickers every day, I'm not going to talk to you too. Just do your goddamn job and keep your mouth shut." --Hillary to her State Trooper bodyguards after one of them greeted her with "Good morning."
