Does Samantha Power Mean a Myth-Jacking Monster?

To what kind of monster does Samantha Power refer? Obviously, I'd like to think she means the type who would stop at nothing, including fear-mongering tactics that already introduce the Dark Side here in the primaries. Given that the use of the term is out of character and inconsistent with previous praise of Clinton, I think it's reasonable to conclude, she meant the myth-jacking type of monster.

“I made inexcusable remarks that are at marked variance from my oft-stated admiration for Senator Clinton and from the spirit, tenor, and purpose of the Obama campaign,” Power said in a statement.

Power, a top foreign-policy adviser to Obama, originally told Scotsman newspaper that Clinton “is a monster, too—that is off the record—she is stooping to anything.” Apparently she and the paper had different definitions of “off the record.” She later apologized, declaring her admiration for Hillary Clinton."
