Jerry Brown answers a reporter's question.Jerry Brown is running for the 2010 California governorship, but he's spent much of the last week reliving the politics of the 1990s. And Brown's unfortunate lurch into the past culminated Monday with an apology to former President Bill Clinton for taking shots at Clinton's conduct during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
"Bill Clinton was an excellent president," Brown, the state attorney general, said Monday at a news conference. "It was wrong for me to joke about an incident from many years ago, and I'm sorry."
Brown's 1990s mystery tour began early last week when his GOP opponent Meg Whitman aired an ad reviewing Brown's harsh attacks on Clinton when both men were vying for the 1992 Democratic presidential nomination. In an effort to wave off that attack, Brown floated a couple of Lewinsky asides in a campaign speech Sunday. Addressing an audience of supporters, Brown said: "I mean, Clinton's a nice guy, but whoever said he always told the truth?" Brown then mocked Clinton: "I did not have taxes with this state," Brown said, clearly referencing Clinton's now-infamous denial of the Lewinsky affair, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky."

Jerry Brown’s a regular riot, isn’t he?
Jerry Brown is the toe fungus of California politics, a persistent nuisance.
>>”It was wrong for me to joke about an incident from many years ago, and I’m sorry.” <<
MANY years ago? Really?
Wasn’t that long ago - unless you also think 9-11 was also an incident MANY years ago too, so we should all just fuggedaboudit.
What is the definition of MANY to a moonbat?
a real bang-up job in Oakland,, po’ ron dellums.. lolol
THE NEW, FRESH FACES OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY!! FOR 2010!!

NEW, NEW, NEW! NOT THE SAME OLD LIBERAL DEMOCRAT IDEAS!
And who are we running, we new Democrats for 2010?
JERRY BROWN and BARBARA BOXER!
this is the only thing getting him any airtime.. and Meg is giving it to him.. oh is she ever.. lolol
Good God!.....Brown ran for president?
The pwned comic...
That was when Teddy K held great sway as they say.. or thereabouts.
He is technically a semi-fossil.
“Celebrity birthdays, today Monica Lewinsky is 38. It seemed like just yesterday she was crawling around on the floor in the Oval Office.”
The positive aspect of the incident is to refresh the public’s memory - no matter how much Beelzebubba tries to pretend his is an elder statesman, he is just an impeached rapist liar who traded secrets to the chicoms for campaign contributions!.
Jerry Brown admits he blew it by telling Lewinski jokes?
His tombstone should be a urinal-shaped thing.. it will likely have many visitors and finally allow a Clinton to serve the public instead of the other way around.
Crawling was NOT was she was doing on that floor!!!
“You know who was at the Vanity Fair (Academy Awards) party? Monica Lewinsky. She was sitting right next to me. I was at table 14; she was under table 12.” Jay Leno
where is Monica Lewinsky anyway?
maybe she should be doing campaign appearances for all the congressional Democrats whose seats are endangered
Hey, Jerry. How about this for a solution: You go to court to change the spelling of your first name by one letter. Change the second “r” to a “k”! It will allow you to become a standup comic after the voters had you your @$$ in a basket on November 2.
