Depravity and Colmes

Fox host Alan Colmes appeared plugging his new book “Red, White and Liberal” on “Fox and Friends” the other morning. After he began with hosannas for Clinton the Economy Savior, E.D. Hill suggested that you can’t argue “there was a decline in morals, in values, and ethics.” Colmes says: “How do you quantify that?”

Steve Doocy chimed in that the children could watch news stories about certain practices that the president thought were not technically sex. Colmes lamely replied: “Hey, look we had a President that was very good at teaching us sex education. Isn’t that a good thing for America?”

Colmes wound up by claiming “I’m very honest about how I do not approve of his behavior in this book. Other President’s have had similar behavior, the press didn’t focus on it to the extent that they did will Bill Clinton. I’m not condoning it, but this became the big media story. The Starr Report was the dirtiest thing on the Internet.”

Has Colmes ever been on the Internet? Doesn’t he get any sleazy spam? If the Starr Report is porn, then who is the porn star, Mr. Colmes? The president knew full well from 1992 that any untoward behavior could receive more scrutiny than JFK or Warren Harding ever received…and he did it anyway.
