WaPo Exults That Bill Clinton Is 'Charlie Sheen Without the Crazy... a Total Bitchin' Rock Star'

To Washington Post staffers Roxanne Roberts and Amy Argetsinger, former president Bill Clinton is "Charlie Sheen without the crazy, a polymath with no 'stop' button -- and, yeah, a total bitchin' rock star."

That's how the gossip columnists cooed about Clinton's appearance at Sunday's Kuwait-America Foundation dinner in their March 8 The Reliable Source feature.

"Of course he was the last guest to leave... much to the delight of the guests who cornered (or was it the other way around?) the guest of honor," Roberts and Argetsinger gushed, wowed by how Clinton's remarks ranged "from unrest in the Middle East... to Neanderthals to the supercollider."

"The program (there's always a program at these things) was emceed by MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' joined-at-the-hip co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough," the Post staffers noted.

"The two office mates looked particularily cozy Sunday night, which is always a little confusing to the uninitiated," Roberts and Argetsinger wrote.

"Hey, bring your real spouses sometime!" the gossip columnists griped without a hint of irony, given the aforementioned guest of honor's notable history.
