Bill, Hillary, Barry & Michelle

Quote of the Day (stolen from Opinionjournal.com)

"When Bill Clinton was first elected, baby-boomers had just become an absolute majority of working journalists, and among some of them simmered an envy-cum-distrust of the first baby-boomer commander-in-chief. Somebody our age is president? Then, over the course of Bill Clinton's (bungled, distasteful) presidency and Hillary Clinton's (bungled, distasteful) campaign for the presidency, the couple have separately and together become incarnations of the most unattractive attributes of their generation's elite – blind ambition cloaked in do-good self-righteousness, a sense of entitlement, high-handed snobbiness ('I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies'), hedonism (Monica et al.), narcissism. As a poster couple for people of a certain age and demographic, they have become a bit of an embarrassment."

-- novelist Kurt Andersen,
in the current issue of
New York magazine.

In a couple years they'll be saying the same thing Barry and Michelle.

Not so long ago Mr & Mrs Willie were the darlings of the Left and they enjoyed the Lib Media’s protection that Obama is now receiving. Of course this was all before they threw the Willies under the bus the moment they had a black candidate to fawn over. If the Willies were black they would still be the King & Queen of the Left. Not much loyalty on the Left, to their own or their country.
