On MSNBC earlier today, Al Capp's Daisy Mae of state attorneys general, Arkansas' Leslie Rutledge, went on at some length about what a morally debased man Bill Clinton was in the nineties, and how wife Hillary was even worse (what with her taking exception to the women who had slept with Bill — imagine that).
The anchor interrupted: But what about Trump's and Giuliani's and Gingrich's Bill Clintonlike failings? What about those?
To which, Ms. Rutledge indignantly responded that voters don't want to hear about that.
They want instead to hear about jobs and the economy, she insisted.
And she insisted on both sides of her morning argument with unflappable seriousness.
What an amassingly weird, otherworldly business this Trump-surrogate thing is.
Where did he find these people? Or did they find him?
