Time for all of those raped and molested by Clinton to show their faces again. They should be part of the audience at the Father of the Year Awards in NYC.

And all the school kids who learned the lesson that, oral sex is not sex through Clinton, should also be in the audience, with a lot of signs with “Thank you Mr President for educating us on sex”.

This nation has sunk to new levels of depravity, First I hear about same sex weddings at the National Cathedral, now this.

Unfortunately I think we have entered into an age of sickness rivaling ancient Rome under the likes of Caligula and Nero.

"I wonder what Monica’s father thought about that."

Lewinsky's Dad Criticizes White House Stance March 24, 1998 | From Associated Press Monica S. Lewinsky's father said Monday he is concerned that President Clinton's decision to invoke executive privilege will only prolong his daughter's isolation. "The longer this delays, the more difficult it becomes," Dr. Bernard Lewinsky said. Clinton has invoked executive privilege to block some testimony of senior White House advisors Bruce Lindsey and Sidney Blumenthal.

What do any of these things have to do with being a good father - Father of the Year?

“President Clinton exemplifies the attributes that we celebrate through the father of the year award.”

By doing nothing, lying, serial adultery, wagging the dog, and bloviating constantly?
Those are characteristics to emulate?
Obviously the awarding group are idiots.

Dan Orwig, Chairman of the National Father`s Day Committee.

It should be noted that this is the opinion of some obscure, self appointed group with no particular qualifications.

You notice they don't say he is the best father, just a father of the year. If it were somehow possible to determine who was the best father, I don't believe that Clinton would make the the top one million.

Those who call good, evil and evil, good. I am amazed at how backward and evil we have become in 50 short years! Even in the past 20! Jehovah is not happy and he is going to let us know.

You are right that this is some obscure self-appointed organization. And that is exactly why they are doing this. Its a way to generate donations, period. They did not analyze whether Clinton is the best father — his daughter is an adult and he has no kids so even if he did not have his other issues, this wouldn’t make sense. Charities do this all the time — give an award to a famous person to glom onto their fame to make money.

The award went to John Edwards in 2007. And why wasn’t Barney Frank named Mother of the Year?

Have we been introduced to this child of which he is father of the year ? Has Hillary met this child?

Another institution seduced by slimy politics. And down and down we go.

This is my email to the National Council on Father’s Day:

To Whom it May Concern:

All of you who are responsible for naming Bill Clinton Father of the Year should be ashamed of yourselves.

He is a molester, rapist, liar (who was disbarred for lying under oath), a disgrace to his family. How can you name such a low life who totally humiliated his wife and daughter?

I guess all of you have no morals either—the man is a sleezebag.
