Former Clinton-Hater-Hater Now Merely Clinton-Hater

Like a deluded moron who gets married and hyphenates his last name only to wind up scribbling the foul moniker on alimony checks, I find myself desperate to lose a hyphenation in my life. See, I’m a long suffering Clinton-hater-hater. Ken Starr? Hate him. Newt Gingrich? Him, too. Bill Bennett. Who doesn’t? Nonetheless, I now […]
