Is This teh Best Soros’s Moola Can Do?

C’mon.

Summary: On Hardball, Chris Matthews stated of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s baseball loyalties: “She went to the Yankees so that she could run for senator from New York. It’s so obvious. Why is she — doesn’t she know she looks like a fraud?” However, the idea that Clinton switched allegiance from the Chicago Cubs to the New York Yankees during her Senate campaign is a myth commonly repeated in the media and not supported by evidence. Clinton’s 2003 autobiography contains a photograph of her wearing a Yankees cap in 1992, and The Washington Post reported in 1994 that “Mrs. Clinton … as a kid was a ‘big-time’ fan of the Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees and ‘understudied’ Ernie Banks and Mickey Mantle.”

Media Matters – Repeating Clinton Yankees myth, Matthews asked: “[D]oesn’t she know she looks like a fraud?”
This, according to Media Matters, is telling, and bears repeating:

Clinton’s 2003 autobiography contains a photograph of her wearing a Yankees cap in 1992, and The Washington Post reported in 1994 that “Mrs. Clinton … as a kid was a ‘big-time’ fan of the Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees and ‘understudied’ Ernie Banks and Mickey Mantle.”

She, like her Hubby, couldn’t find 161st if it farted in either of their faces.

But what in blazes does “understudied” mean? Monica? We need clarity.
