Hillary Clinton: I Play Pickup Basketball
News Max

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton loves to tell whoppers. Her latest: she has played "pickup basketball.”

It’s the latest in tall-tale fibs she has been spinning to make herself more likeable to voters.
The New York Times revealed Hillary’s problem in a feature article this weekend headlined "Hillary Clinton Searches for Her Inner Jock.”

Noting that Americans like their president to be active in sports, Hillary, at first blush, doesn’t seem to pass the grade.

"Voters expect their presidents to throw out the first pitch; they are used to George W. Bush clearing brush, Bill Clinton playing golf, George H.W. Bush racing speedboats, and Ronald Reagan riding horseback.”

Hillary’s MySpace page claims she is a "speedwalker” also with using her leisure time to do "crossword puzzles, Scrabble and gardening.”

This spells B-O-R-I-N-G.

The Times quotes one Hillary donor explaining the dilemma: "How does 59-year-old Mama run against sexy [Barack] Obama?”

One way may be to play "make believe.”

Last week, Hillary joined tennis pro Billie Jean King for a Women for Hillary event. "I played softball, I played pickup basketball, I played tennis,” Hillary claimed at the event.
Hillary remembered she even had won a trophy once in an Arkansas mixed-doubles tournament.

But her "pickup basketball” story appears to be a feeble effort to play catch up with Obama’s athleticism. He does play basketball, along with vigorous and frequent workouts at the gym.
For sure, Hillary has a propensity to make things up when she gets into a political bind.

Among Hillary’s more hilarious claims:

*She was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. who climbed Mount Everest.
*She was a Yankees fan when she lived in Chicago.
*She told upstate New Yorkers she had been a "duck hunter.”
*She claimed on Sept. 11 daughter Chelsea was jogging around the World Trade Center.

If Hillary really wants to make a hit with the male voting population, perhaps she can take up mixed martial arts! Would like to see her do some kickboxing after a busy day of crossword puzzles.

P.S. ANON.--MediaMatters is just a Leftist vehicle with which to polish your own propaganda. Don't bother to cite it...
