And Speaking Of Boomers!

Dr. Helen checks out Julia Gorin’s new book, Clintonisms:

I spent the morning reading a new book by conservative comedian Julie Gorin called, Clintonisms: The Amusing, Confusing, and Even Suspect Musing, of Billary. I generally don’t go for these kinds of books that make fun of various presidents but this one was sort of catchy and funny–although if you like the Clintons, you may not see it that way.

In the introduction, Ms. Gorin states that we are faced with the real possibility of a second Clinton presidency and her book “attempts to preempt that reminder and at the same time examine the pressing issues and questions that may be revisited in the event of a second Clinton presidency…”

She notes that her book is not a scholarly work and is not meant to be fair or balanced. “It’s a collection of anecdotes, reportage, jokes and first, second and third-party quotes from and about the Clintons.” The anecdotes, jokes and quotes range from those “Defining the Clintons” to “With Peacekeepers like These…” which focuses on disturbing sayings from the Clinton’s ideas of foreign policy. The hypocrisy of many of the musings is food for thought.

You can hear my interview with Julia in the latest edition of PJM Politicaltune in here; she’s about 15 minutes in, right after Bill Bradley’s opening segment.
