Well, it was bound to happen, but I just want to say that I don’t think I should be punished for it in the same way as everyone else who faithfully watched tv coverage of President Reagan’s demise last week. I didn’t turn on my tv set once the entire week to see or hear any of the media coverage, so I should be exempt from the blast we’re about to get from The Cratz. Besides, according to Tony Soprano, “revenge is served with cold cuts,” and there simply has not been enough time for the cuts to get cold. Although I’m sure the sausage will definitely be inundating us all shortly. If you catch my drift.
It seems that CBS has ordered, ordered mind you, all their affiliates to air a Clinton book talkradio special. It will be an hour long program in which callers will be able to phone in questions to Bubba. No one mentioned whether Willie will actually answer those questions, though. And it seems to me this is a legitimate question because there was recently a press release about the rules governing Clinton’s book signing appearances. All he will do is sign his name in the book. Nothing else. No special wishes or For Whoeveryouare’s. Just his name. Which leads me to wonder about the answers to those caller questions and whether there will be any. I also want to say that this may disprove Christopher Hitchen’s postulate that Clinton has No One Left To Lie To. Since Clinton’s book is reported to be nearly 1000 pages long, and he’s being given an hour on talkradio to discuss it, it’s hard to believe he won’t try to squeak just one little fib by us.
And this won’t be the end of it either. Ohhhh nooooo. We are going to pay dearly for all that free publicity Ronald Reagan received because he died. The Cratz will have their pound of flesh, and they’ll do it through a rather circuitous route, which makes me wonder whose brain child this really was. It’s payback time, and Bill Clinton is going to reap the rewards and get what the Cratz have due them by hawking his book. In other words, if one is a respected ex-president who died, and one gets prolonged national press attention out of respect for the position one has held, payback consists of book commercials for the Cratz impeached ex-president. Not only that, but as opposed to the one week Reagan got, The Cratz are claiming the entire rest of the summer. Call me crazy, but I smell the handiwork of Terry McAuliffe or Chris Lehane at work here.
There’s only one thing left to say to this… Thank God for cable and a functioning off switch on my radio.
