Please, Make Them Go Away

Having wearied, apparently, of cat-burning the Bushies, Times columnist Maureen Dowd has lately found new sport in that “two-headed monster”, the Clintons. It’s a felicitous choice: I’ve had enough of these two to last a lifetime, Bill in particular.

Today’s entry here.

    Ms. Dowd’s obsession with the Clintons borders on the bizarre. What’s behind this trash-and-burn commentary?

    Hi John, and welcome – I don’t think you’ve commented here before.

    This is what Dowd does. Her past reflections on the Bush administration, particularly Cheney and Rumsfeld, make today’s piece about the Clintons seem like a hagiography by comparison.

    Frankly I find it refreshing, living as I do in one of the “bluest” parts of the country, to see Bill Clinton mentioned in an unworshipful way. Around here anytime people talk about him you can hear harps playing.

    What I find most surprising about this current episode of “Bill and Hillary” — oops sorry it’s “Hillary and Bill” now — is that unlike episodes past, Bill seems bereft of any political timing whatsoever. I suppose I shouldn’t be too tough on the old compulsive campaigner for other’s approval since it’s far more gratifying to know when to make your entrance than it is to realize when you should make your exit.

    Correction: Since they’re preparing to campaign in Brentwood, the show formerly known as “Hillary and Bill” will, after intense data mining, change its name to “Billary and Hill.”
