How bad is it getting for Hillary when the best her defenders came come up with is Harold Ford Jr.'s formulation: okay, so the words most associated with her are "liar," "dishonest" and "untrustworthy" but, hey!: she's not unpatriotic.

On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough hit Harold with the obvious question: does he think David Petraeus--who was convicted of a crime for improperly passing classified material--is a patriot?  Ford had to acknowledge that he is, but when Harold tried to distinguish Hillary's actions from Petraeus', Scarborough swept in to challenge him to a Romneyesque $10,000 bet: "who do you think passed more classified material along, David Petraeus or Hillary?"
