More Hollywood Gossip (Geffen Division)

It’s always amusing to read entertainment industry figures talking about lying. A Maureen Dowd column this morning has one of the richest and most powerful of all, David Geffen, slinging the following mud (or is it a laugh line): “Everybody in politics lies, but they [the Clintons] do it with such ease, it’s troubling.”

Whatever you think of the Clintons, that line is a masterpiece of projection from a man who made billions off other people’s music. (How many lies did that take?) Nevertheless, Geffen draws blood in his attack on Hillary. The Obama-Clinton battle should be something to watch.
