ESTRICH, AS IN OSTRICH :

Now she admits her duplicity. (Media Research Center, 8/28/02)
Bill Clinton defender Susan Estrich conceded during a Saturday appearance on FNC that she had "defended the indefensible" in explaining away as irrelevant to his job performance Bill Clinton's personal behavior.

Recalling her many media appearances post-Lewinsky, Estrich expressed regret: "I mean I've done it. I've said 'Oh, sex with an intern, oh big deal, you know. I don't care, you don't care, what could be better'....I sat there for years and I did that, in the hopes that it would finally go away and, you know, Bill Clinton would become Jimmy Carter and we could all live happily ever after."


There was something deeply disturbing not only about watching decent people like Susan Estrich defend him, but even more so about watching the three Senators who we thought had souls--Lieberman, Moynihan, & Kerrey--vote to keep the guy in office. What a dark moment for a once great party. Posted by Orrin Judd at August 28, 2002 10:03 PM
