Maybe she learned it from another historical figure .. a fundamentalist Baptist preacher in 1859:
If you want the truth to go round the world you must hire an express train to pull it; but if you want a lie to go round the world. it will fly; it is as light as a feather, and a breath will carry it. It is well said in the old proverb, 'a lie will go round the world while truth is putting its boots on.'At least now we know what Hillary wants to be called if she's elected: Mein Führer. Bill can still be First Gentleman (let's hope he keeps fresh cigars on hand, if The Opportunity ever strikes).
-Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892)
BTW, I enjoyed today's CNN article:
