The 60 Minutes Tongue Bath

So last night, it was mentioned on the 60 Minutes rimjob of Bill Clinton that, during the 1992 interview with Steve Kroft about Gennifer Flowers (which Clinton himself had voluntarily arranged to squelch the Flowers rumors), Bill was so pissed that Kroft would dare interfere with his personal life that he wanted to get up and "slug" him.

[Cut to Dan Rather, who mistily cocks his head and says with his eyes, "You poor, poor man. How'd you ever get through it?"]

Of course, it's a cliche at this point, but imagine if it was a Republican former president saying the same thing. Oh, the outrage! Wanting to visit violence against a journalist who just doing his job! What a big dumb ape!
