Hildebeeste's Real Colors

Fuggedabout all that "Moderate Me!" patina ol' Hil's been trying to emplace on her political persona lately--that's fo' suckers.

The REAL Hildebeeste burps another green gaseous gun-grabbing proposal:

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has quietly stepped up her fight for tighter gun control by signing on to a new push to make public a national database of weapons used in crimes and illegal sales.

Her résumé on gun control, a pet issue among the Democratic Party's liberal base, includes calls for a ban on assault weapons and so-called "cop killer" armor-piercing ammo - yet she hasn't personally taken a lead role in any gun legislation in this Congress.

... Clinton was so eager to have her name attached to the bill that she called Sen. Bob Menendez out of the blue to co-sponsor it, the rookie New Jersey Democrat told The Post.

The precis of this bill is hardly complete. More to follow.

On the other hand, it's probably a good sign that gun control is referred to as "a pet issue of the liberal base," rather than, "the common-sense wave of the future" like it is over at the NY Times.

Vox calls her the lizard queen. I have to agree.
