Frank Rich's Fairy Tales
Bob Somerby has documented well Frank Rich's hatred of Al Gore and the Clintons. And of course everyone is entitled to their opinions, but in his column today Rich accuses people of living in fairy tales while creating his own. Consider this:
People don’t change. Bill Clinton, having always lived on the edge, is back on the precipice. When he repeatedly complains that the press has given Mr. Obama a free ride and over-investigated the Clintons, he seems to be tempting the fates, given all the reporting still to be done on his post-presidential business. . . . “The Republicans are not going to have any compunctions about asking anybody anything,” Mrs. Clinton lectured Mr. Obama. Maybe so, but Republicans are smart enough not to start asking until after she has secured the nomination.This is too funny. Does Frank Rich want to explain how HE knows about all this? Does he REALLY think the public is going to be "shocked" by whatever Whitewater-like triviality he thinks he knows about? But Rich has a history of believing in fairy tales. Last year he believed and tried to sell the fairy tale of John Warner getting us of Iraq. His history of fairy tale writing against Al Gore is notorious. Frank Rich lives in a glass house of fairy tales. Here is what Frank Rich needs to do - help us to enforce the new Obama rules. That would help, as opposed to his spinning more of his sad fairy tales.
