Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

Bill Clinton on 'that little Down syndrome kid'

In New York on behalf of his global initiative, former President Bill Clinton mixed with reporters (an ill-advised combination) to again misrepresent himself.

According to The Associated Press, Clinton said he understands GOP vice presidential pick Sarah Palin's appeal because voters think:

"I like that little Down syndrome kid. One of them lives down the street. They're wonderful children. They're wonderful people. And I like the idea that this guy does those long-distance races. Stayed in the race for 500 miles with a broken arm. My kind of guy."

That's sticking to talking points for ya.
