Republicans are justifiably complaining about Sen. Hillary Clinton saying during a speech Sunday in Aspen, Colo., that “I sometimes feel that Alfred E. Neuman is in charge in Washington.” There is plenty to criticize George W. Bush about without comparing him to a cartoon character. Besides, it’s not a new joke. The Nation magazine depicted candidate Bush as Neuman on the cover of its October 26, 2000, issue.
Of course, it should go both ways. Many of the same GOP operatives who are complaining about what Clinton said have themselves said much, much worse things about her and President Clinton.
