DURST: Gearing Up for Term Two

They're gearing up for term two of the Clinton administration and it's going to be about as smooth as a gravel milk shake. You'd have a better chance of reconciling Sylvester Stallone movies with the English language.The next four years are going to make the Borgias look like the Walton family. Trent Lott, Tom Daschle, Tony Danza: everybody says there's going to be lots of cooperation between both sides of Congress and the White House, and there will be. At least as far as what shape the Senate investigation tables will take. And there will be investigations. Tons of them.Disney can do a follow up live action flick; "101 Investigations." Only the part of Cruela De Ville will be played by Al D'Amato. "I want those subpoenas!" Personally, I'm looking forward to the explanation of how a person earning $22,000 a year can afford to contribute $12,500 to a Presidential campaign. A frugal patriot with a commitment to excellence is my guess. Of course then I was the guy who sobbed when I heard that Santa Claus was just a corporate lackey beholden to franchise toy stores. Last year.The best wish Bill can have for the next four years is to survive them.Will Durst guesses he will.
