Clinton “Sleep Deprived” When She Misspoke; What About the 3:00 A.M. Phone Call?

Alright, so last week Hillary Clinton was in Washington, D.C. and was discussing her trip to Bosnia in 1996.  She said the following concerning her landing at Tuzla airport: “I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

CBS later released footage that showed that there was no sniper fire and that the plane landed routinely.

Clinton then said at a press conference in Greensburg, PA, “So I made a mistake.  That happens. It shows I’m human, which for some people is a revelation.”

 OK, that’s fine – plenty of people misspeak (including myself), but then she said this: “I was sleep-deprived, and I misspoke.”

And then the trouble started.  Do you remember that ad about the red phone ringing at 3:00 A.M.?  If not, see the video below:

HEHE – I just found this regarding that ad – I find this one quite amusing:

OK – back on track.  Now, personally, I could care less if she was sleep deprived – I get 5 hours of sleep a night – I understand not sleeping.  I don’t think the misspeaking was a big deal, but a lot of people are making fun of her about the 3:00 A.M. phone call ad and the fact that she misspeaks when sleep deprived.

On MSNBC’s website, Brian Hussein makes a comment saying, “She was ‘sleep-deprived’ and ‘misspoke’?  Would she be sleep-deprived and “misspeak” when the phone rings at 3 AM?  Perhaps she’d confuse the housing crisis with sniper fire and order a carpet bombing of Wall Street? <– insert sarcasm here,” and Sue from Bloomington, IN says, “She was sleep-deprived?  I hope she’ll be wide awake enough to answer that 3 a.m. phone call without misspeaking.  ‘you know, they told me there were snipers, you know and I just, you know, told them to take military action, you know….or was that Iraq?’”

So, this could become quite an embarrasment to her campaign, along with the revelation that the girl in the ad, Casey Knowles, is actually an Obama supporter.

All this infighting and McCain might not even have to campaign!

    As much as I enjoy seeing the Clinton missteps, I’m kind of getting tired of all the Dems silliness.

    It’ll cost them the general election. This has got to be some of the worst infighting that I’ve ever seen. I mean, sure, it’s not like a Dixiecrat split or anything, but it’s still getting pretty bad.

  3. hoppersean Says:

    This almost makes it tolerable. ABC is indicating that Democratic sources fear that Hillary is going to go with the “Tonya Harding” option… (LOL)

    Wow – I love the wording of that – and it’s absolutely true. That really is what she’s doing to Obama.

    There is bad news about Clinton.

    It is opined that Bill Clinton committed racist hate crimes, and I am not free to say anything further about it.
