Bill Clinton sorry for 'scumbag' remarks, spokesman says

Dana Milbank was so right. Another apology in Potomac Land.

Hillary Clinton's campaign has apologized for "inappropriate" language used by her husband in response to what it called an "outrageously unfair" article about the former president.

I think a couple of months ago Bubba said, words to the effect, that if one can't play hardball one shouldn't be in politics. Et tu, Guillame?

Clinton said he had not read the article but that he was told that "there's five or six just blatant lies in there. But he's a real slimy guy."

He didn't even read the piece? Wait, this gets better:

Purdum "didn't use a single name, he didn't cite a single source in all those things he said," said the former president, who added that the article was "part of the national media's attempt to nail Hillary for [Barack] Obama."

The media is out to nail Senator Clinton so Senator Obama can win? And Elvis said so, too.

Purdum, a former New York Times reporter who covered the Clinton White House and is now married to former Clinton press secretary Dee Dee Myers, defended his article on CNN's "The Situation Room" Monday. He told CNN's Wolf Blitzer he was "very careful to say there is no clear-cut evidence that President Clinton has done anything improper." Watch CNN's Wolf Blitzer interview Purdum »

If only Bubba had read it ...

And on CNN, Purdum quoted "some people who work for him" saying that Clinton "seems to be angry all the time."

Evidence is plenty for that; in many pictures he looks enraged.

"This theory is false and is flatly rejected by President Clinton's doctors who say he is in excellent shape and point to his vigorous schedule as evidence of his exceptional recovery," the rebuttal said. Watch analyst James Carville's take on the article »

I gotta watch Bullethead Carville on this one.
