Into The Twilight Zone of Clinton

I have found that men with enormous egos generally tend to overlook their own enormous failings. They just pretend they don't exist, and hope you will too.

But this episode takes the cake.

Speaking at a fundraiser in Chicago, Bill Clinton started talking about the TV series set in the 1960's, "MadMen."

Clinton looked out at the diverse crowd and said it was different than a crowd of white men that might be seen on the TV show "Mad Men."

"You ever watch that TV series 'Mad Men?' " Clinton asked. "If I keep watching this program, will I ever find a happy person? Great television. Good drama. But a lot of really painful reminders in that show about how black people were supposed to run the elevators... were supposed to ask permission before they get on an elevator. The way women were treated is appalling, and only occasionally funny to me."

Gee, I'm glad that the appalling treatment of women on the show is only occasionally funny to you. Can you believe this??? This is like Chris Brown lamenting a show that portrays domestic abuse.

Did Clinton really think that people had just forgotten HIS appalling treatment of women?

It's surreal, it really is.
