A president is only as good as his presidential impersonators. That’s how we’re going to measure merit in politics from now on. And if that’s accepted, then Bill Clinton, our 42nd President and a newly minted 69-year-old today, might need to have his image carved into Mount Rushmore because he was imitated better than most, partly because of his smooth southern drawl and partly because of his whole sax-playing sex stuff vibe. The man’s a comedy goldmine. Don’t believe me? Calling me a liar?! Go check out these impressions of Hillary’s husband and tell me I’m wrong.
Jon Stewart does a spot-on Bill Clinton on Late Night with Conan O’Brien
In a clip that predates even The Daily Show, a young Jon Stewart hangs with Conan and Andy and tells us, “I don’t do a great Clinton impression.” Prompted by Conan and Andy, though, J-Stew (making it a thing!) gives us five words of that sweet Clinton magic. “Is that good?” he asks. “Is that it?” It was good. And it wasn’t ‘it,’ but it should be.
The Venture Bros Get Dirty
Doc Hammer and Jackson Public remind us that the only real way to do Bill is to do it with as much filth as possible. Catch Mr. President offering astronaut hero Bud Manstrong a cigar before correcting himself with “No, not that one.” Nice. And of course, the full-color remarks about his secretary are enough to make all of us uncomfortable. This is a great episode overall, if you ever want to check it out. Just remember that season two Venture Bros animation can be a little low-budget, as you can see in the clip.
