This morning, while discussing the media uproar surrounding Senator Clinton’s latest invocation of Senator Robert F. Kennedy’s assassination, Liz Trotta, former New York bureau chief of the Washington Times, unsubtly confused U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Barack Obama with Saudi jihadist and purported 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden… and perhaps placed similar value on their lives on live television.

The ‘vast right-wing conspiracy’ blame has been undermined by her evasions, by her outright lies, if I may say; by her pandering, by her race-baiting–and now we have what some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Os–Osama–um, uh–Obama. Well, both, if we could…”
