The Clinton Presidential Museum will be releasing several thousands of documents today.
Guess what that means. The Meme Police will be out in force. Teabagger Central will be working overtime, attacking Hilary, Bill, and anyone else connected with his presidency.

This will feed a shitstorm the likes of which we haven't seen since WhiteWaterGate.

Here's the first volley from a talk news radio. It is rather benign, and references to Hillary are muted (with an undercurrent of "How DARE she screen the docs before release?).

Muted for now. Give them time.

After 13 years, a stash of documents hidden in Bill Clinton's presidential library in Little Rock, Ark., has finally been made available to the public.

The William J. Clinton Presidential Library released around 3,500 pages of documents from Bill Clinton's time in the White House. The papers are part of a larger 33,000 store of documents which will be processed and released over the next few weeks.

Thanks to a 1974 law, the White House makes presidential documents public 12 years after a president leaves office. The National Archives announced they would publish these documents after Politico began pressuring the library to release them. And while it's hard to imagine this new release of documents containing any new bombshells about President Clinton, their release has been heavily scrutinized thanks to his wife Hillary Clinton.

Library to release 3500 documents

OK, folks, put on your seat belts, break out the expresso, and get ready to dive in and read. You just KNOW that they are going to blow everything up into some new scandal.

Watch  Issa demand testimony from Bill.
Watch Lindsay Graham claim he as "shocked, shocked, I say" to learn that they practiced politics.
See as Mitch McConnell uses this as a reason to re-elect him, so he can lead the charge against the rampant illegality and worse from the Democrat Party.
Smile as Rand Paul attacks any libertarian move made by Bill's Triangulation Style.
Laugh as Gov. RIck Perry forgets who was president during the Clinton Presidency.
And cry as all the cable news stations cover each allegation blindly, as though major crimes, misdemeanors, and treason was committed simply by turning on the lights in the Clinton Oval Office.
Then see Rush, Sean, Billo, and others use this to try to destroy Hillary's campaign before it starts.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
