No One Left to Lie to: The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton

Front Cover
Scoffing at the idea that the far right of the Republican Party was poised to seize the American state, Hitchens points out that the real coup d'etat was executed by a Democratic president who took every remnant of New Deal liberalism in his party and tore it into shreds. In this, he was assisted by finance from Miami Cuban mobsters and advice from his only friend and closest consultant, Dick Morris, a conservative Republican. Public attention which might otherwise have tried to prevent this tragedy was diverted, together with the sound judgement of many on the left, along a path of dalliance with issues of race, gender and sexuality of which the Monica Lewinsky affair was the most intoxicating example.
