Mrs. William ClintonDesperate people do despite things. Mrs. Clinton is desperate. She craves the presidency but her campaign is running out time, money and primaries.  Mrs. Clinton is losing and she knows it.

Hence Clinton operative, Larry Johnson is attempting to convince Barack Obama that an explosive video tape of his Bitter Half, Michelle, exists.   Johnson is trying to spin two yarns.  One that this imaginary video exists, and two, that the evil Karl Rove has it:

But the real reason for Obama’s extraordinary freakout is that he fears the release of the videotape, reported here, of Michelle Obama in the pulpit of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s church railing against “whitey.” And we don’t mean Whitey Ford. Four Republican sources have told me that the tape exists. I’ve also been informed that Karl Rove and his allies have a copy of it and are using it to raise funds for independent expenditure groups. The tape, I’m told, will be disclosed as the GOP October Surprise. It’s a ticking time bomb.

Jim Geraghty, National Review, is skeptical of the tape:

Also, if this speech really occurred and this video really existed, wouldnt the chain of custody of that tape make it more likely to end up in the hands of a Hillary supporter than a Republican? Presumably, whoever has the tape knows how devastating it could be to Obamas chances. Would whoever recorded it or archived it give it to the Republicans, but not to Hillarys people? Again, this doesnt completely rule out the rumor being true, but its a reason for skepticism.


A.J. Strata, Strata-sphere,  is rather sleptical of Johnson:

Larry Johnson is wild with conspiracy theories, but he also may be on to something (though I seriously doubt his version of things – the man is a professional liar for hire).  Recently he hinted at a GOP held tape of Michelle Obama railing askepticalgainst Whitey inside Rev Wright’s Trinity Church (something believable I guess).  Today he notes Obama’s run to defend his wife against the GOP attack machine is because Obama knows about the tape and its contents

I suspect that Johnson has about as many contacts to Karl Rove as I do.
