Awww, it’s just Bubba. You know how he is.
Forty three percent of Americans would forgive Bill Clinton for his lies, according to a new 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll.
Other liars don’t fair as well, as you can see below.
It’s amazing how far a little charm will take you. Clinton thoroughly disgraced the presidency, jeopardized national security by distracting himself and the nation for a year with his ludicrous troubles, and destroyed a young woman’s life.
And yet he’s the éminence grise of the Democratic Party.
Lie of the Year, 1998:
What have we become that this guy is the most honored leader of the Democratic Party?
Well, if you want some idea, maybe you checked out last night’s Super Bowl halftime bacchanal. Here’s an abbreviated version.
My wife made me change the channel for the children’s sake when the Red Hot Chilli Peppers hit the stage half naked. And she didn’t even pick up the lyrics to the featured song by Bruno Mars:
Open up your gates cause I can’t wait to see the light
And right there is where I wanna stay
Cause your sex takes me to paradise
Yeah your sex takes me to paradise
How many kids were watching this? Does anyone even care?
Or how about First Friend Jay Z and his wife, Michelle Obama idol Beyonce, who is seen here at the Grammies trying to out-twerk Miley Cyrus.
This couple was invited to hang out in the Situation Room. This woman sang at the inauguration. I’m sorry, pretended to sing.
I mean, I appreciate Beyonce’s charms as much as the next guy. But did she need to make her Grammy performance all about her ass?
I’m not saying people shouldn’t do these things. Just not in front of eight year olds. And they shouldn’t be made White House emblems.
And Bill Clinton should be living as a recluse in some New Hampshire hamlet. Not striding the world stage as a Giant of History.
We are headed straight toward Rome, with stops for relaxation in Sodom and Gomorrah along the route. And our leaders are showing the way.
