The chicanery continues: The same powerful Wall Street lawyer who defended Dick Grasso’s “futures” payment plan before Mr. Grasso resigned as head of the New York Stock Exchange is helping prepare a report on how the organization should revamp its corporate governance practices, The New York Times reports. His name is Martin Lipton. What conflict of interest isn’t recognized by the Big Board?
Who said itâ¢ “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.” George Bushâ¢ Sure, in words not dissimilar. Even Bill Clinton said the same general thing. But Lucianne.com reports this exact quote was spoken by none other than Teddy Kennedy on Sept. 27, 2002 . Sen. Teddy of late has taken to lambasting the president for supposedly “misleading” the country. If Bush did, so did Kennedy.
Leading Hillary indicator: Lucianne.com also reports that a database search shows that Hillary Clinton has said she will not seek the Democrats’ nomination for president in 2004 a total of 138 times since 2001. The numbers aren’t crunched so specifically as to indicate how many times Mrs. Clinton volunteered her disinterest versus how many times she was responding to wanting, liberal ink-stained wretches. If it’s the former, it’s a good indication she will run. If it’s the latter, it’s a good indication The New York Times will call on Democrats to draft Hillary in Boston.
