My fellow New Yorkers,
The New York Times, among others, tells me to quit the race. Here's my proposition. I'll resign when the Times poses this question. In the upcoming NBC-produced miniseries called "Hillary," who will play Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey?
What, confused expressions? Interesting how the Weiner-get-out crowd forgets that "everybody lies about sex" -- except when it comes to politicians whose last name is not Clinton.
Digital First Media, in a piece run by a bunch of news outlets, put out a list of the eight most recent political scandals. I'll read the entry for President Bill Clinton: "The scandal: In 1995, Clinton had an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, then gave a misleading answer about it in a sworn deposition in a civil case."
Are you kidding me? That's the Bill Clinton "scandal"?
Maybe I just dreamt that a credible, professional woman named Juanita Broaddrick appeared on NBC's "Dateline"? And that she accused Bill Clinton not of sending dirty pictures, but of rape.
When then-Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton was running for governor in 1978, Broaddrick, a nursing home operator, was a campaign volunteer. Clinton invited her to visit him at his campaign office when she was in Little Rock. A week later, Clinton suggested they meet instead in her hotel coffee shop. But because there were "too many reporters" in the hotel lobby, Clinton suggested they have coffee in her hotel room.
"Stupid me, I ordered coffee to the room," Broaddrick said. "I thought we were going to talk about the campaign." On "Dateline," she said: "I first pushed him away. I just told him 'no.' ... He tries to kiss me again. He starts biting on my lip. ... And then he forced me down on the bed. I just was very frightened. I tried to get away from him. I told him 'no.' ... He wouldn't listen to me."
Maybe I just dreamt about another credible woman, a Clinton campaign contributor named Kathleen Willey, who on "60 Minutes" accused then-President Clinton -- not of calling himself Carlos Danger, but of sexual battery?
