oldie but goodie
i know this aired about four years ago but i just stumbled onto it today on youtube and watched it again. i don't think a former president was ever so candid and i love how that little prick chris wallace keeps trying to deflect him after he realizes he's opened pandora's box. this was during the height of bush-era bullshit, and while i definitely don't approve of all of clinton's policies, i remember all us sane people back in '06 were looking for someone to set the record straight on the republican party's rewriting of history, which was in full swing at the time. we couldn't have been more gratified when it came from the man himself.
i recall going to my buddy's place the day after this aired, downloading it, and downing beers as we watched it, cheering like madmen.
"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."
