On Bill Clinton's 60th Birthday

Ben Shapiro comments on Bill Clinton's August 15 address to a world AIDS conference in Toronto, in which the former president philosophized about turning 60:
"Turning 60 is certainly a bummer for a man as reliant on his prostate as Clinton is. Nonetheless, Clinton's speech was a stunning testament to his egocentricity. Who whines about a post-midlife crisis while discussing a disease that has pushed Angola's average life span to 39.9 years, Zambia's to 39.7, and Zimbabwe's to 37.9? Who tells a roomful of people worried about the devastation caused by a global plague that he is personally devastated by having another birthday?

"Bill Clinton, that's who."
Read the whole thing.

When I reacted yesterday to Bill Clinton's NYTimes Op-Ed piece, "How We Ended Welfare, Together," as another example of Clinton's megalomania, I thought perhaps my prejudices were fomenting a knee-jerk distain. I guess I wasn't alone, however. Michael Novak had the same reaction and puts the legislation in better historical context at First Thing's On the Square.

Having Bill Clinton speak at an AIDS conference, would be like inviting the fox to tell the farmer how to build his chicken coop.

In case we haven't noted, Bill Clinton's sexual promiscuity is representative of the behavior that helps spread the dreaded disease.
