The news story, trumpeted at Drudge, is that Sidney Blumenthal, one of the Clintons’ attack dogs and a current Hillary advisor, was arrested for some seriously bad driving in New Hampshire: going 70 in a 30 mile an hour zone, weaving wildly, and stopping erratically. Although he refused to take a Breathalyzer test, he unsurprisingly failed a field sobriety test, and one can make a pretty good guess that he was, indeed, drunk of his a** when stopped. To me, it’s just another story of a famous person with a mug shot. What I found infinitely more fascinating were the comments people left, comments oozing hostility to the Clintons as well as to Blumenthal, along with a few sad comments from people who suffered serious injury or lost loved ones at the hands of people who had previous DWI arrests, but nevertheless ended up back on the road. Here are just a few samples of the anti-Clinton animus this story generated:
How come this is only being reported now?Days after the NH primary.I hate the Clintons,I hope the American people wake the *** up and dont take a step backwards.
This is just too good to be true. This pompous jerk got caught drunk. What a ridiculous fool he is and totally irrelevant. No wonder he was drunk. No one listens to his tirades any more. They should throw the book at him and put him in the same cell with Charles Manson!
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. Hopefully this is a down payment on a humongous karmic cataclysm for “Sid Vicious”.
Please, I’m sure the entire Clinton team was driving drunk on the roads of New Hampshire on the eve of the Primary, given those gloomy poll numbers. He needn’t worry, though: in eleven months, Hillary #44 will ascend her throne and pardon him.
My husband and I were hit by a drunk driver 10 months ago. He came into our lane, hit us head on, driving 45 mph. He was being chased by police. My husband and the drunk driver were killed and I was seriously injured. He had been arrested for DWI before. Those arrested for DWI should be locked up with the key thrown away.
Gore didn’t invent internet enough to chronicle the transgressions and malfeasance of the group of clintonisters.
Wow: Drudge beware as Sid Vicious loves to have his attorney busy going after you and others (including me once upon a time). I suppose my only question would be is he still beating his wife?
Only one down, so many more to go. If anyone sees Sandy Berger at a party with alcohol, please make sure to keep his drink fresh.
Throw the prissy little wife-beating turd in jail. Gracious arrestee? Wet his pants, no doubt.
Sidney behind bars too bad ,he really deserves a lot more time in jail for the dirty work he has done for the Clinton crime family Clinton INC, He is as rotten as Hillary they are all slime ans sleaze that surround the Clintoons!
Where is the booking photo of Snide Sid? I’m sure Leno and the boys can have fun with it for a few weeks. While I dislike the Clintons I do not think this causes them any damage. It does give them the opportunity to cut loose this vindictive little man. Would you like to fight a war with him in your foxhole? Didn’t think so.
Vince Foter is rolling over in his grave laughing his ass off at this one.
I took my name as a fart in the face of that sniveling little weasel blumenthal. Hillary has never wiped her own bum because his face is in the way. No shock that this power hungry little tyrannt turdblumenthal would be arressted for such an offense. I hope he’s gang raped in prison.
Where’s the mug shot??? Di I have to wait for a real journalist to produce it from the Washington Times?
Two of my sons have been killed by drunk drivers. As far as I’m concerned, anyone who fails a field sobriety test should be executed by the side of the road, whatever their standing in society. Let the New Yorker bunch wring their hands about that!
Forget the booking photo…I’d love to see the failed sobriety test! It’s got to be on video….
Couldn’t have happened to a nastier person. He’s known as Sid Vicious, right ?
Karmic payback, Sid !
Forget yhe jail time. Jail space is needed for other things. Bring back flogging.
No special treatment. There is simply NO excuse for driving while intoxicated. The danger to others is so significant, and the potential consequences so grievous, that there can and should be no sympathy or mitigation of penalty. Anything less would be a true travesty of justice.
