Hillary Rodham Clinton Finally Admits she was not named after Sir Edmund Hillary of Mt Everest Fame … Really?
Really? Hillary Rodham Clinton was not named after the man who conquered Mount Everest as she has claimed for so many years. Say it isn ’t so. Not like any of us in the blogosphere didn’t know about that lie early on. Everyone knows that on May 29, 1953, Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay of Nepal became the first human beings to conquer Mount Everest.
For more than a decade, Sen. Clinton’s informal biography repeated the story, and it was recounted in former President Bill Clinton’s 2004 autobiography, “My Life.”
The problem with the tale, however, is one of timing. Sir Edmund and his Sherpa guide, Tenzing Norgay, became known to the world only in 1953, after becoming the first men to reach Everest’s summit. Sen. Clinton was born in 1947. (World Net Daily)
So how exactly does Hillary Diane Rodham born on October 26, 1947 get named after a man who the world came to know some 6 years later? Now its one thing to humor your mother with this cute and inspiring fable; however, why would Hillary Clinton continue to tell the same story over and over knowing that it was impossible to have occurred? Don’t they tell us that Hillary Rodham Clinton is the smartest woman in America? So Hillary cannot tell the truth as to the origin of her name, something as simple as that. What else is a fabrication? Next thing you know Hillary is going to tell us that her family was named after Dennis Rodman. Oh that’s an “m” and an “n” not an “h” and an “m” … nevermind.
Years after alternative media pointed out the virtual impossibility, Sen. Hillary Clinton finally has admitted she was not named for the famous conqueror of Mount Everest, Sir Edmund Hillary.
The New York Times, which repeated the claim as fact in a story just one week ago, reported Sen. Clinton’s campaign issued a correction yesterday.
