DURST: Clinton's Money Drop

In his press conference on recent revelations that his administration used the White House as a money bag drop, Clinton made it absolutely clear: "We didn't do anything wrong and we promise not to do it again, and we can't recall if and or when and or where it may have happened. Which it didn't." Well that clears things up like a lousy decade old 8mm print of a vampire flick at a foggy drive in theatre in the Andes with votive candles throwing the projection. Earlier, "Soliciter-In-Chief" Al Gore repeated seven times that he was advised there was no "controlling legal authority" determining his fund raising by phone campaign was wrong. Couldn't find anybody who claims to know what "controlling legal authority" actually means, but everybody agrees it is very impressive and possibly the most memorable thing this guy's ever said. I don't know who the Vice President's advisor is, but I bet he's going to end up grocery shopping with Salman Rushdie before the cherry blossoms bloom. Clinton won't say he never played Gore's "Dialing for Dollars" game which either means he did and he's not saying or he didn't and he's not saying. Got to be careful constructing the stone wall Bill; sometimes you end up cementing your feet to the wall. Will Durst is pretty sure Clinton could wriggle out of cement overshoes.
