The left's circular firing squad

Captain Ed has some great examples of the left's hypocritical political theater:

There are a few moments where pure schadenfreude can honestly be enjoyed without guilt. Besides Geraldo getting assaulted by neo-Nazis he wanted to exploit for ratings, the second-best example is watching Democrats beat each other up by accusing each other of the voter fraud they insist doesn't exist in general elections. This time, Bill Clinton provides the blue-on-blue action in Nevada:

Today when my daughter and I were wandering through the hotel, and all these culinary workers were mobbing us telling us they didn’t care what the union told them to do, they were gonna caucus for Hillary.

There was a representative of the organization following along behind us going up to everybody who said that, saying 'if you’re not gonna vote for our guy were gonna give you a schedule tomorrow so you can’t be there.' So, is this the new politics? I haven’t seen anything like that in America in 35 years. So I will say it again – they think they're better than you.

Wow -- who would have thought that unions try to organize voters? Isn't that why people like Bill Clinton have sucked up to them for decades? Having a leading Democrat complain about union pressure on members for political action has to be one of the most clarifying and completely hilarious moments in politics since .... well, since Howard Dean flamed out in Iowa and the Democrats picked John Kerry as the nominee.

Just keep in mind that the quote is from Billy Jeff Clinton. He has a long history of just making shit up and passing it as gospel.
A couple of key examples: his "remembering" arson attacks on black churches in his youth, didn't happen; claiming he did not having sex with dozens of women not his wife, did happen. That is just two out of many that could be listed.

HT to Ed Driscoll.

Update: Bryan at Hot Air has the story on Obama supporting democrats crying voter fraud.
I guess we’re just going to have to get used to this sort of after-the-fact crying foul in every single election involving a Democrat.

It’s not just one diary on Kos. Here’s another. The Obama campaign itself has made the claim of “more than 200 voting irregularities” in Nevada.

We never hear anything like this on the Republican side.

That the Clintons are involved lends the possibility of it actually having some weight, I’ll admit.

The Schadenfreude is delicious!
