Clinton should drink ‘mad bitch’ beer, jokes WashPost journalist


Secretary Clinton should drink "Mad Bitch" beer suggests Washington Post journalist Dana Milbank in a video that was later pulled from the newspaper’s Web site. [Foreign Policy, by the way, is owned by the Washington Post Company.]

The humorous video related to the discussion about what type of beer would be consumed at last week’s "beer summit" between President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Prof. Henry Louis Gates Jr., and Sgt. James Crowley. "We won’t tell you who’s getting a bottle of Mad Bitch," Milbank says while dispaying a photo of Clinton about 2:35 into the video.

The Washington Post‘s communications director told Talking Points Memo via e-mail: "The video was a satirical piece that lampooned people of all stripes. There was a section of the video that went too far, so we have removed the piece from our website."

The video isn’t that funny, and Clinton laughs off this kind of ridicule anyway. It’s probably getting pretty old for her by now.
