Why the hate on Bill? He speaks the truth, and it hurts.
Well without getting into political discussions on a baseball board, (because we all know those never end happily) I find Bill to be just like the other half dozen right-wing talking heads on tv and radio these days. His fans find his "truth" refreshing as if his recitation of every old conservative idea in the book and guest trashing act was never done before. He throws a bone to the liberal viewers once in a while (defended abortions) to keep his ratings up and his act from getting more stale than it already is but pretty much becomes the White House spokesman from there on out. Face facts, he's not "enlightening" America anymore than Jerry Springer is with their shock value tv.
