That BBC Clinton Interview...

...is here.

Thanks to NRO.

I don't know how much I care about this. From what I've seen so far, the "anger" is fairly controlled. I'd say more like "peeved."

Oh-- the .ram file starts with other news, which is lame, because it's British news, the lamest of all news. Skip forward about one-eighth of the way through the thing to pick up the Clinton interview.

Update: Okay. I'm done with it. It's pretty boring.

The "fireworks," such as they are, last about a minute and a half. Clinton is defensive and indulges in paranoid and narcissistic fantasies, and he does lose his temper some, but he doesn't actually become "unhinged" as has been alleged.

Classic Clinton: Dimpelby presses him to admit he lied. He will not admit this, citing the "confusing" definition of sexual relations. So Dimpleby attempts to get him to concede he lied to his wife. CLinton won't even admit that; instead, he allows that he "didn't tell the truth."

That's an interesting distinction.

Summing up: He's not contrite at all, which is proven by the fact that he becomes physically angry when anyone suggests he did anything wrong. I don't know how someone can be "contrite" about actions they continue strenously defending.


It's very blah, blah, blah bullshit psychobabble blah blah blah so far.

Clinton: "Kenneth Star would not be allowed to be a prosecutor against me in any decent court in America"

Clinton: "My opponents and the media thought it was all about achieving and retaining power, but I thought it was about how power was used. I kept score not according to who had power, but according to whether more people had jobs."

Ahem.

Clinton: "It's hard to think straight" when people are saying mean things about you.

That, I suppose, explains the health-care reform thing.

Clinton: "It [the Monica affair] happened. It happened because I was tired, I was angry, I was involved in this titanic struggle, I was worried I was going to lose to the Republicans in Congress."

Ah. I see. It was my fault.

I suspected as much. I'm bad that way.

Okay, here comes Clinton hitting that "definition of sexual relations" yet again.

Absurd.

You know, absence makes the heart grow fonder, or at least softens extreme antipathy. But I'm eight minutes into watching this horrible narcissist liar, and I'm getting those old crazy Vast Right Conspiracy feelings again.

Was he really this bad? I had forgotten.

Clinton: "We had a mad prosecutor on the loose, who was dying to indict anybody"

Clinton: "You know how he [Starr] got away with it? Because people like you [the media] only ask people like me questions. You gave Starr a complete pass"

Clinton: "He put Susan MacDougal in a Hannibal Lecter-like cell, made her wear a uniform only worn by murderers and child-molesters"

Clinton: Thinks the interviewer should be asking about how he saved the Bosnian people.

Clinton: 9-11 Commission, on the day he met with them, told him they had made a "finding" that none of his personal problems or distractions contributed to the terrorist massacre.

Well! How efficient! Issuing findings prior to taking testimony! Terrific idea! Cut out the middleman and pass the savings on to the public!

I have a question: The very fake, very rehearsed, very dishonest "light-hearted laugh" used when answering difficult questions about one's lies and lawbreaking. Did Bill teach that to Hillary, or did Hillary teach that to Bill?
