I only caught the end of Tucker Carlson’s PBS interview with Kenneth Starr last night, but it had entirely the same mellow, wouldn’t-be-prudent vibe as the entire 1990s. So to the extent that anyone pays attention to both men this weekend, it sounds a little like this:
Ken: Well, gee, the president was very impressive. He’s a very effective speaker and advocate. I have no judgments to offer that weren’t in my referral, heavens to Betsy.
Bill: Ken Starr was the instrument of the vast right-wing conspiracy, crushing innocents as he squandered millions of dollars and oppressed poor Susan McDougal, trying to get her to lie. His operation was unethical and illegal.
