How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is...

By Michael J. Smith on Saturday February 4, 2006 11:14 PM

... to have an ungrateful Senator -- somebody you bought and paid for, fair and square, turn on you.

The Walton family, of Wal-Mart fame, must be feeling rather Lear-like just now. Hillary Clinton, a serpent long nurtured in the Wal-Mart bosom, has for the first time... returned their campaign contributions, according to AP:

Clinton returned $5,000 to the political action committee of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., a company with long ties to the Clintons dating back to their days in Arkansas, where Wal-Mart is headquartered.

Clinton campaign spokeswoman Ann Lewis said the money was returned "because of serious differences with current company practices."

The senator served on the Wal-Mart board from 1986 to 1992, and was close with the Walton family that created the nation's largest retailer.

Taking Wal Mart money is one thing when you're playing Eva Gabor to Bill's Eddie Albert, with Dick Morris starring as the wee piggy. It's a different story when your constituents shop at Targét.


She's still Eva (not to say Evita):

New York is where I’d rather stay.
I get allergic smelling hay.
I just adore a penthouse view.
Darling’ I love you, but give me Park Avenue.
