THE “LORDS OF TOLERANCE” BEHIND CLOSED DOORS: Bill Clinton 2008 on Obama: A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee. “As politically tempting as it is to demagogue this, and duly aware that the left would never give the benefit of the doubt to a conservative in an argument over racial subtext, I can’t believe Billy Jeff meant it ‘that way.’ Comparing a guy running to become the first black president to some sort of servant is astoundingly tone-deaf, but that was par for the course for Clinton throughout that campaign.” So he gets a kind of Joe-Biden pass then. . . .
Plus: “A parting thought that scarcely needs articulating: Had a Republican said what BJ said, he’d be finished, finished, finished.”
