(Special Two Item Pussywillow Edition)

 1.  Happy Dyngus Day

One of these mid-West states is having another one of their cockamamie regionalized Holidays.  I already discussed “Sweetest’s Day” so I figure I should cover this one as well.  Especially since it may have an even worse name:

Dyngus Day.”

The Dyng was invented by Polish immigratnts apparently unhappy about America’s “lack of degrading and pointless traditions.”  On the DD, Polish persons dress in traditional ill-fitting garb and the young men pour buckets of water over young girls’ heads.  They then assault the ladies with pussywillow switches.

Dyngus Day everyone!

2.  The Pussywillow Treatment of Hillary Continues

If you haven’t heard — and you probably haven’t because the media is ignoring it — Hillary boosted her “experience” cred by claiming that she traveled to Bosnia as First-Lady and was forced to take cover from sniper fire.  Here she is discussing the “heavy fire” she endured.

As the Washington Post reports, this is a bald-faced lie.

Far from running to an airport building with their heads down, Clinton and her party were greeted on the tarmac by smiling U.S. and Bosnian officials. An 8-year-old Muslim girl, Emina Bicakcic, read a poem in English. An Associated Press photograph of the greeting ceremony, below, shows a smiling Clinton bending down to receive a kiss.

Why is this not getting more attention?  This is not a lapse in recollection, either she endured sniper fire or she didn’t.  If you came under fire and were forced to flee the tarmac it would be burnished on your memory.  You don’t simply “forget” or “misunderstand” such a fact.

Obama is assailed for statements made by his Reverend six years ago.  Hillary flat out lies and is apparently getting away with it.
