Testicular fortitude on display

In recent months, NY Senate Democrat Hillary Clinton has kept her moderate side on display, but, at Ezra points out, Clinton went balls out today castigating the Bush administration & the Republican party at her first re-election fundraiser.

"There has never been an administration, I don't believe in our history, more intent upon consolidating and abusing power to further their own agenda," Mrs. Clinton told the audience at a "Women for Hillary" gathering in Midtown Manhattan this morning.

"I know it's frustrating for many of you; it's frustrating for me: Why can't the Democrats do more to stop them?" she continued to growing applause and cheers. "I can tell you this: It's very hard to stop people who have no shame about what they're doing. It is very hard to tell people that they are making decisions that will undermine our checks and balances and constitutional system of government who don't care. It is very hard to stop people who have never been acquainted with the truth."
Clinton went on to lambast the Washington Press corps as being a "pale imitation of the Wathergate era reporters" and voiced the same concern about the media's hesitance to ask the "hard questions" and cover the stories that need to be addressed.
