Clinton Goes Nuts?

Amid the hype of the Clinton book release, we’ve heard most of the usual conservative shots at Clinton (on the womanizing, the selfishness, the lying, etc.) And that’s all good. But some on the right are seizing on a BBC interview in which the president supposedly “lost his temper” in accusing the media of taking Ken Starr’s side during the impeachment debacle.

Newsmax.com even accused Clinton of a “meltdown,” while Sean Hannity compared the interview to Al Gore’s recent lunatic speechmaking and Howard Dean’s primary-night yelling. But there’s just one problem: I watched the interview, and Clinton doesn’t even raise his voice. If that’s a meltdown, then what do we call Hannity and O’Reilly’s daily bloviations?
