Quote of the day - Joe Sobran
The president [Clinton] indignantly denied the story that he'd auctioned off plots in Arlington National Cemetery to political donors. But I suspect that in the back of his mind he was asking himself: "Doggone! Why didn't I think of that during the '96 campaign?" There is sometimes a fine line between innocence and oversight.
The Arlington story should have been true, even if it wasn't. It was too perfect, too Clintonian. It seemed to round out the Clinton legend, in the same way as the apocryphal witticisms ascribed to Winston Churchill or the gaffes attributed to Yogi Berra.
