Hillary Gets Gold Medal For Defending Corporations Today

Today Hillary Clinton will receive a medal from the Bar Association for her work as a corporate attorney at the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, Arkansas. It’s unclear why she would want to highlight this resume.

Maybe she will give a passionate speech about the time she challenged a ballot initiative supported by ACORN that gave low-income Arkansans a break on their utility bills in court. Or the time she defended Coke when they were denying a disabled man named Ronnie Weeks his retirement benefits?

Or our favorite, the time she defended a canning company that had rats rear ends in their pork and beans. Bill Clinton often mocked her calling it the “rats ass” case. Her defense there? She said in some parts of the world rats butts would be considered edible.  We never claimed she wasn’t good at spin.
