BILL SPEAKS. Yesterday, I wondered about whether or not Bill Clinton was going to leave the House of Many Triangles and defend his record in the face of the now nakedly spurious ABC docu-fakery. Well, any man who defends himself in such a fashion that the staid, old New York Post can put a goofy headline on the story has answered more than adequately any complaints I might have had. I now entertain fond daydreams about the reaction on the right if ABC were to send this production off to cable hell the way the Reagan production was dispatched under fire three years ago. I also now remember that I saw this movie once and wonder whether my daydreams may be violating the laws regarding intellectual property.
