DURST: Felons Visiting the White House?

The Clinton administration acknowledged that a lack of background checks allowed a felon with possible ties to the Bonanno organized crime family to attend a Democratic coffee at the White House. Big deal. This incendiary accusation has been twisted all out of proportion for purely partisan purposes by the conservative elite right wing media. For one thing, a lot of felons have gravitated towards 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, including more than a couple of guys who got themselves elected in; does the name Nixon have any meaning here? They should install an official plaque on the West Gate designating it San Quentin East. Maybe that's why the security there is provided by the feds. Hell, half those foreign dignitaries they throw those fancy State Dinners for look like they'd be more at home in leg irons than wing tips. And since when does drinking coffee with Billy "Three Legs" Clinton assist in a mobster's standing in the criminal underground? "Hey Nutso, did you hear Vinnie No Nose had tea with the First Lady? Pretty obvious who's next in line for Capo." Maybe it was a preliminary discussion on matters of National Security, like the prompt disposition of some Island Dictator, if you know what I mean. And what right thinking American doesn't regard that as a good idea? Will Durst doesn't, but he's not very right thinking.
