Former California Governor Pete Wilson was full of zingers at a Paul Ryan fundraiser in Beverly Hills. He also had some amusing words for Bill Clinton.
It wasn’t just Paul Ryan who mentioned Clinton, and the praise was hardly uniform. Former California governor Pete Wilson was also on hand and asked the crowd of about 200 people if they had “watched that little show last night? The return of Bill Clinton?”
“You know, all through that … all I can think of was the last time I seen him shaking his finger,” Wilson said, referring to the Monica Lewinsky scandal. “‘I did not have sex with that woman.’ I figured that anyone who can redefine sex as he did in that moment is fully capable of redefining economics, which he tried to do last night.”
Ouch. It’s amazing how in all the media adoration of Clinton they forget he also lied to them, not just the American people.
Wilson brought up Ryan’s direct opponent Joe Biden, who along with Obama, was set to address the DNC the same evening.
“We all believe in fairness and there’s one problem,” Wilson said. “Paul is going to be debating Joe Biden. And friends, that’s just not fair. That’s not a fair fight. You’ve got: an aging lightweight against a youthful heavyweight. … God, sometimes I think he must be a Republican: He gave us Joe Biden, who is good for at least one gaffe a day. How would you like to be his keeper? You’d need a year’s worth of valium.”
