I read with curiosity Robert Campbell's comments ("Eastwood's smutty jokes," Readers Forum, Sept. 5) regarding Clint Eastwood's sideshow at the recent Republican National Convention. While I have to admit that I did not watch Eastwood's "rant" and would never condone his odd sense of humor portrayed on a national stage, I am wondering what Campbell's thoughts are regarding the appearance of former President Bill Clinton as a keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention?
What does Campbell suggest I tell my children and grandchildren when they ask who Clinton is or was?
I believe the Democratic Party espouses similar "family values" as the GOP. If that is the case, how do they reconcile a morally corrupt philanderer as one of the more important faces of their party? This "smutty joke" should also be addressed by the candidate, the party and the media.
