Four-Hour PBS Documentary To Explore Bill Clinton, And I'm Sure They'll Cover the Womanizing

Wait, what?

They actually do cover the womanizing, at some length?

Well then I'll watch. Or at least I'll watch the YouTube snippets about the womanizing.

[A] lmost a full hour of the documentary ends up focusing on Clinton’s personal struggles with fidelity, coupled with harsh, blunt language from many of his colleagues and chroniclers...

“There was this growing skepticism in the press that this guy was just a big phony,” says TIME’s Joe Klein, discussing Clinton’s reaction then to the allegations. “He was too slick. He was too smooth. And he would lawyer answers to questions.”

The things you find out later. Well guys, you certainly hid your skepticism like pros. You sold that claim that the Flowers recordings were "doctored" like you really believed it.

Or like you wanted us to believe it, anyway.

...

The Lewinsky scandal occupies a nearly 40-minute stretch towards the end of the film, and is largely used as the coda to Clinton’s time in office.

“There were almost these sparks flying between them from that first moment when they saw each other,” said Ken Gormley, a law professor at Duquesne University and the author of “The Death of American Virtue: Clinton vs. Starr.”

Here comes one of the funnier paragraphs I've read.

It’s almost as though there was a part of Bill Clinton that he had no control over,” said William Chafe, a history professor at Duke University.

That's what she said.

"That whenever it had the opportunity to come out, it was going to come out..."

That's what she said.

""...and with no forethought, with no calculation, with no sense of the consequences, it was simply going to happen. And that’s terrifying.”

And that is, in fact, what she said.

More silliness, as his henchmen, like Robert Reich, explain that his problem is that he needed to be adored.

And/or bent. Adored, or bent.

Anyone notice this odd habit the press has of digging up stuff on Democratic politicians after they're safely out of politics and even their wives' careers are effectively over?

Bill Clinton

He just needs to be adored, for just like five minutes, under the Resolute Desk.

And also, he's going to need to adore you in the face.
