All Things Clinton?

Curiouser and curiouser....

Disgraced Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu had a well-known affection for fine living and all things Clinton. And his collector's taste and eye were on display Wednesday, when federal authorities unsealed documents showing they had seized more than 180 bottles of pricey wine from Hsu's New York apartment, as well as a saxophone believed to have been autographed by President Clinton.

Do you think the press will ever give this the scrutiny it deserves?

Until recently, Hsu, 56, traveled in glittering circles as one of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's most prolific supporters, raising more than $1.2 million for the New York Democrat and other Democratic candidates in the last three years.

But of course, they knew *nothing* about his background. Why, how can they be expected to know the background of every donor? Even the ones bringing in this much money? Sorry, Mrs. Clinton, *that* takes a willing suspension of disbelief.

It was unclear how Hsu acquired the saxophone. Howard Wolfson, a spokesman for Sen. Clinton's campaign, said Bill Clinton had signed many instruments that have been sold to benefit charities or party organizations.

Well of *course*. That explains it. I'm sure they weren't even on a first name basis, right?

Isn't it odd how the press loses all sense of curiosity when it comes to the Clintons?
