CLINTON RULES. I have, over the past few months, found myself in the increasingly uncomfortable position of being one of the few people who writes for a lefty blog willing to say anything nice about Hillary Clinton . This is not because I have any special affection for Clinton, whom I have never met or interviewed, but because the attacks on her are often so floridly off-base or flat out wrong that it offends my sense of fair play. Bumptious blogger Bob Somerby of The Daily Howler , who is unafraid to go after anyone, be they friend or foe, has recently taken up the burden of documenting, once again, just how pervasive the anti-Clinton media distortions are, even in the liberal blogosphere, and reminds us all of �the Clinton rules of journalism� : you can say any goddamn thing you want -- as long as you say it about the Clintons. And so this morning, it was with disappointment that I found M.J. Rosenberg falling prey to Clinton Rules over at TPMCafe.
