Ooo-ooo, Smell That Smell

There's a wonderful saying, usually attributed to Sun Tsu: "If you wait by the river long enough, the bodies of your enemies will float by." Sun Tsu has been dead for over 2,500 years so I can't e-mail him to see if he really said that, but if he didn't he should have. For me the wait hasn't been too long. Most of us knew when Hillary Clinton ran for the US Senate seat being vacated by the honorable Daniel Patrick Moynihan that her real goal was to reclaim the White House power base for the Clinton Crime Syndicate. Back when I used to care who the Republicans were running in 2008 much of the discussion revolved around who could "stop Hillary." It was a glorious week here in South Carolina back in January when we found out exactly who could stop her: Bill Clinton.

This past week our only elected president to be impeached came unglued because Vanity Fair did a long article that explored Bill's very dark soul. It's one thing if The American Spectator or The Weekly Standard or the WSJ Editorial page writes something bad about him. After all, they're all just part of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy(TM). But when a glossy, New York fashion magazine read by the idle Gulfstream Greens and Limousine Liberals trashes Billy, why that's a bridge too far. By now I'm sure you've heard or read Billy's tirade about the article using Clintonian debate terms like "sleazy", "slimy", "dishonest" and "scumbag." That last one, for you youngsters, is defined as "a used condom." Looks like the William Jefferson Blythe Clinton Presidential Legacy is now complete. But buried in this outburst was this from the impeached one:

"It's all about the bias of the media for Obama... But I'm telling ya, all it's doing is driving her supporters further and further away-- because they know exactly what it is-- this has been the most rigged press coverage in modern history."

OK. I won't argue that the media isn't in the tank for Barack. But holy crap pal, you were President of the United States for eight years, put on some big boy pants ya whining, miserable sore loser. And, by the way, as for "the most rigged press coverage in modern history" you might get an argument from: Barry Goldwater, Dick Nixon, Spiro Agnew, Ronald Reagan, Dan Quayle, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Bob Dole, Don Rumsfeld, Scooter Libby, Mitt Romney... you get the picture. Maybe it's a matter of what the definition of "modern" and "history" is. Democrats have no idea what it's like running for public office without a handmaiden press to assist daily. Bill & Hill got a very small taste of it and they don't seem to like it much. Poor babies.

Whether you ever grow up or not is no concern to me though Billy boy. I'm just sitting here along the river watching your stinking carcass float downstream. Oh look, a turkey buzzard.
