From the photos from the link, that place looks like a GIANT mobile home....

To be honest, they all look like giant mobile homes. There's a really amusing write-up of the various Presidential libraries in Edifice Complex by Deyan Sudjic, the Guardian's architecture critic. He hates all of them, and many other famous (modern) buildings as well.

No knee pads, no white stains, no little blue dress...

I'm not feelin' the Clinton era here. They could have done a better job making the Oval Office a tad more realistic! At least throw in a plastic bimbo or three!

>>no little blue dress

Sure there is. Look at the painting. Bill's wearing it.

The Clinton fucking jokes are so tired. We are so ridiculous as a country that we give a shit about who our leader has sex with. And demand to know. Tacky shit. Where Clinton went wrong was in not saying "none of your business."

Moreover, many of our presidents had affairs; the media just changed (as did the approach of the right wing) when Clinton was in office. I'm imagining he'd been behaving a certain way without getting caught -- and failed to notice a shift in the media, thus failing to recognize that the the coverage and the stakes had changed.

Clinton's sex life is meaningless -- but for how it was turned into a giant brake on our country's forward motion by the religious right. I'm far more concerned with how the fundanutters against Clinton drew his attention away from the USS Cole at the time, and distracted a sitting president from affairs of state - and act, on their part, contrary to patriotism, to say the least. Partisanism and bringing Clinton down at all cost was what they were all about. At least Clinton went after Bin Laden, not Saddam, when Bin Laden's people struck one of our fleet.

The current guy in the White House sees us attacked by Osama and...goes after Saddam? Perhaps he needs to get blown by interns to learn to think straight.

The Clinton jokes are nowhere near tired, and he earned every one of those little motherfuckers! How dare you!

It's nice to see the obverse of the usual exterior of the place, the "trailer" view.

Clinton's sex life is anything but meaningless. If it were meaningless, we wouldn't know anything about it. As it is, schoolchildren can recite chapter and (obscene) verse. There's a lesson in human nature for them in it, but we needn't be proud. If Clinton's attention was so readily distracted --an accusation with resonance-- we need not admire it.

Sell it, Amy. Exactly hoe much incompetence do you want to see listed on this fucker's epitaph? Is he the guy who gave his best effort to getting Osama.

Puh. Fucking. Goddam. Leeze.

Also, that first portait reminds me of my favorite press room snapshot of our 42nd president, from the days (circa Feb 98) when he finally realized how history was going to judge him.
