Remember how virulently Boris Yeltsin opposed U.S.-NATO intervention in Kosovo? Well, apparently neither does former President Clinton. In his op-ed in yesterday’s New York Times, Clinton pays tribute to “my friend Boris” and lets the world know that he, Bill Clinton, attended Yeltsin’s funeral in Moscow last week. But what about Kosovo? It’s mentioned this way, in a paragraph that lists the courageous steps he took in foreign policy: “He made Russia part of the diplomatic solution to the crises in Bosnia and Kosovo.”
The line that comes to mind is Phil Hartman’s, from the hilarious Roseanne Barr- Hartman SNL spoof ad for “MetroCard,” in which bank rep Barr gleefully recalls how she berated hapless customer Hartman, who was trying to have his lost credit card replaced. Whereupon the humiliated Hartman tells the camera: “She gave me several options. And, well, everything turned out okay.”
