Durst: When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Go Golfing

Welcome to Clinton's summer getaway, Martha's Vineyard, where Bill plans to take the pulse of America amongst normal folks. Yeah, right! A lot like trick or treating at the Vatican. Or checking an opera program for baseball box scores. We're talking about an enclave where the normal folks have summer homes with names. Where the talk around the pickle barrel includes comparative arguments about the chauffeur's dog's current psychotherapist. Where your typical guest cottage has more bathrooms than Candlestick Park. Ah yes, he's going to mix with the hoitiest of the hoi polloi. The First Family arrived at the tiny island airport with Hillary wearing dark glasses after having said she forgave her husband but "was misled." Sounds like Lewis blaming Clark for going down the wrong river. Supposedly, the Prez is going to spend his time examining ways to regain the public trust. Ways other than telling the truth that is. After all, he's looking for a political solution, not a real one. Hopefully he can find some quiet time to wander down a beach and maybe a few unguarded moments to check out the Black Dog restaurant and buy a couple more gifts for Monica. I imagine a novelty ball gag could catch his attention. Will Durst thinks he's more polloi than hoi.
