Me too. And I agree with what the senate did.  I agree with what Ken Starr did.  Both were doing their jobs.

I watched again recently.  This is a great example of comedy that has aged well.  It has even improved over time, as we have grown wiser with the internet and certainly more cynical about our own leaders.  This was Dustin Hoffman’s best work, and probably DeNiro’s best as well.  Parodies seldom make it into that league or get that much star power.
