Join American Compass for a great deal on THE CLINTON CRACK-UP
With his characteristic gimlet eye and acerbic voice, R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. sheds new light on Bill Clinton's post-presidential emotional depression, globe trotting and international deal-making, financial ties to China and the United Arab Emirates, ongoing womanizing, vital support role in Hillary Clinton's anticipated run for the White House, and—most important of all—his possible role as America's first “First Man.”
Now that his better half is a declared presidential candidate, we can only imagine the risks and rewards Hillary faces with Bill lurking in the wings—or trying to take center stage.
I've known Bob Tyrrell for years, and it never ceases to amaze me how one man can be so well-informed, so perceptive and so funny, and all in a single sentence. Witness:
"On he went, a forlorn Bill Clinton, a flesh and blood modern-day reenactment of The Flying Dutchman, that spectral ship of legend, that roams the world from port to port, a dreadful curse upon it. Though in Clinton's case, it was not so much a curse that was upon him as a ringing in his ears: Hillary's rant: 'Avoid Rich Babes!'”
The Clinton Crack Up includes several appendices that detail the former President's speaking fees, a census of Clintonistas with legal woes and a list of those infamous end-of-term pardons.
Bob Tyrrell is founder and Editor-in-Chief of the famous and feared American Spectator, a political and cultural monthly, which has been published since 1967.—Brad Miner
