Durst: It's the Economy, Dough Boy

I remember Bush stammering during the debates. "The economy's turned the corner." Yeah, right, then it rolled twelve times, slammed up against a tree and burst into flames, George. Bush was the guy who had never not been in a limo. He was confused by groceries. At least you know Clinton keeps a close eye on them. Now, he's trying to pre-empt next year's expected Republican onslaught with a two and a half million dollar series of ads depicting himself as Mister Anti-Crime. The Dark Knight of Arkansas fighting a never ending battle against Bob Dole, (Two Face) and Newt Gingrich (The Riddler). All he needs is for Al Gore to dress up as Robin, and he's guaranteed a fifty million dollar opening weekend gate. Hope he works out a bit before donning those tights. Will Durst is going to spend the rest of this week rootin' on the Giants. Lost causes are his specialty.
