Washington Post: Mayhill Fowler says she never planned to ask Bill Clinton the question that unleashed a decidedly unpresidential tirade.

But in the crush of the crowd in South Dakota last Monday, when she raised the topic of “that hatchet job” on him in Vanity Fair, the former president called the article’s author “slimy,” “sleazy” and a “scumbag,” tightly gripping Fowler’s hand the whole time. “I’m sure he had no idea who I was,” the 61-year-old Tennessee native says.

He quickly found out. Fowler is a Huffington Post blogger whose audiotape of the exchange exploded across the media landscape, prompting Clinton to apologize for his language. And the episode came just two months after Fowler rocked Barack Obama‘s campaign by reporting his comments at a closed fundraiser that “bitter” small-town Americans “cling to guns or religion.”

If you’re an Alabama reader or blogger (or not, we’d still like to communicate from you), please give us a shout. We wanna listen to your thoughts. We’d love to hear about how we can change Alabama. We’d be bedazzled to hear how we can change America in 2008 . And we’d soak up comments about how we can make The Plainsman Politico better. By all means, send us your comments.
