DURST: President Clinton and Kathleen Willey

Well, Kenneth Starr finally found his smoking bimbo. Kathleen Willey has divulged all to "60 Minutes" which is as close as you can get in America of a public confession. She spoke of a simpler time, way back in 1993, when Bill Clinton invited her into the Oval Office and tried to get her to touch his, well ... the leader of the leader of the Free World. Gosh, I guess this proves that whole "Don't ask: Don't tell" theory of his was meant as more of a personal dictum than a general decree. Think he's going to have a wee bit of trouble writing this one off as sloppy staff work. Unless it's his sloppy staff we're talking about, which could turn out to be a little self incriminating. "Mistakes were made. Breasts were groped. Pants were dropped". And you can just imagine how thrilled Hillary is to hear of another in a long line of big haired slaps in the face. I have this feeling that when Buddy got neutered she looked around for a two for one deal. "I got a coupon." You got to admit, at least about Bill, she was half right ... it takes a village idiot.
