Dems Finally Fall Out of Love with Bill Clinton

Dems Finally Fall Out of Love with Bill Clinton, by Jim Treacher.

It took 20 years, but the Democrats have finally caught up with the rest of us. They now see what’s been right in front of their noses all along: Bill Clinton is a disgusting parasite who should be kept as far away as possible from the levers of power.

Slick Willie used to be their dreamboat, but now nobody wants him to be their Valentine anymore. Edward-Isaac Dovere, Politico: …

After booting Sen. Al Franken precisely because they wanted to draw a clear contrast with Trump, Democrats across the party’s ideological and geographical spectrum acknowledged the political trouble that any appearance with Clinton would cause.

Well, how about that. It only took a couple of decades and a sudden cultural shift for Bill Clinton to become political poison. Better late than never, right? …

Until very recently, if you wanted to remain a Democrat in good standing, you had to make excuses for him. In the timeless words of pseudo-journalist Nina Burleigh, you had to put on your “presidential kneepads.” You had to pretend it was just a blowjob, and it was nobody’s business but Bill and Hillary’s, and everybody lies about sex, and Juanita Broaddrick was probably just crazy, and it didn’t matter anyway because the Republicans were just as bad. You had to pretend that the woman who stood by her man all those years, who helped him ruin the lives of his accusers, should be the next POTUS.

And you had to do all that with a smile.

But now you don’t have to pretend anymore, Dems. You can admit it: He’s a bad person. The Clintons are bad people. The influence-peddlers have no more influence to peddle, so now you can finally cast them aside. Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia.
