The smirk

I listened to about five minutes of Air America this morning. The host (Stephanie Miller, maybe?) was talking about how poised and righteous Clinton was in his indignation on Fox News. The left really seems to think Clinton's meltdown was neither a meltdown nor a bad move for Democrats.

Debra Saunders, a rare moderately conservative columnist at the SF Chronicle, disagrees:
Left-leaning blogs are lauding Clinton's tantrum. Thinkprogress.org reported that Clinton taught Wallace "a lesson."

If so, it was a lesson on "How Not To.'' Bubba looked silly dismissing Wallace, his "nice little conservative hit job on me" and the Fox News network as conservative tools. Sorry, Fox News mogul Rupert Murdoch donated $500,000 to the Clinton Global Initiative last week and hosted a fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton this summer.

I don't get it. If Bill Clinton is so smart, why has he made his failure to get Osama bin Laden the big story of the week twice in the last month?
