It just gets better and better

From Jay Nordlinger at NRO:

A friend of mine called and said, "You've got to quote Ethan Hawke," interviewed in the March Details. And what has this actor-philosophe said?

Ah, here we go: "I think that George W. Bush is probably the least prepared person to be president of the United States that's been elected in a long time, if not ever." Okay, I'll keep going. "Clinton is a self-made man. He actually came to it with a desire to do good. Think about it — we have an ex-coke fiend as a president." I will still keep going — it gets better. "And he has a sense of entitlement that I think Bill Clinton never had. Had he had it, he would have said, 'I'm not going to go under oath about my sexual affairs — it's not relevant to my presidency.' Martin Luther King suffered from infidelity [suffered from!], and so did John F. Kennedy. And you're much more likely to find great leadership coming from a man who likes to have sex with a lot of women than one who is monogamous. . . ."

Yeah, that George Washington, John Adams, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt were such pikers.
