So Many More To Lie To

I always thought the title chosen by the late Christopher Hitchens for his book about the Clintons hands down the most apropos: No One Left To Lie To.  (Although R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.'s Boy Clinton is a very good second place.)  But the years have flown by, hence the title of this post.

Anyway, on the eve of a four-hour PBS documentary about our 42nd president that from what I gather will ignore more than a few inconvenient facts, The Weekly Standard's Andrew Ferguson is to be congratulated for reminding us once again what a truly "Big Creep" Bill Clinton was and remains. Please take a few minutes to refresh your memory, would you?

My only problem with the piece is that it fails to remind us as well of the pivotal role played in Bill's countless crimes and cover-ups by his serial enabler and long-suffering spouse, Hillary Clinton née Rodham.  Her one-plus term as the Senator from New York, coupled with her current position as Secretary of State have served to launder successfully her once equally sordid reputation.  But then, had it not been for Bill, the world would never have heard of Hillary.

Oh that we'd never heard of either of them.
