Browsing through an old New Yorker, I stumbled on this story about how Bill and Hillary Clinton have kissed and made up with Rupert Murdoch. It’s creepily reminiscent of the last scene of Animal Farm, where the pigs have joined the farmers’ poker game and the other animals realize that they can no longer tell the difference.
If Murdoch wanted to stop sliming Democrats generally, that would be one thing. The willingness to forgive is a virtue. But the Clintons seem to be willing to make nice with him as long as he stops sliming them personally, no matter what his minions at Fox News and the New York Post do to Democrats who aren’t collecting $250,000 a speech.
That’s not forgiveness; that’s selling out.
