|Atlantic City (IWR Satire) -
The Bookie of Virtue, William Bennett, shooting craps with two of
his GOP gambling buddies, Karl Rove and Paula Jones.
In his best-selling anthology, “The Book of Virtues,” William J.
Bennett writes: “We should know that too much of anything, even a good
thing, may prove to be our undoing … [We] need to set definite
boundaries on our appetites.”
Bet by Bill Bennett
Michael Kinsley on Bill Bennett's hypocrisy.
He claims to have won more than he has lost,
which is virtually (that word again!) impossible playing the machines as Bennett
apparently does. If he's not in denial, then he's simply lying, which is a
definite non-virtue. And he's spraying smarm like the worst kind of cornered
politician -- telling The Post, for example, that his gambling habit started
with "church bingo."
