Bill Clinton Father of the Year? Well, Okay, but…

So, Bill Clinton has been named Father of the Year by the National Father’s Day Council.

Really?

Okay, normally, I wouldn’t care about this or give it a second thought, but I’ll bite. Why this father of a single child (who is now over 30 years old, married and presumably on her own) and why now?

Actually, I am not even interested in the answer. But it seems to me someone like this father, Robbie Parker, might have been a more understandable and laudable choice. Under a time of great personal and national stress, grief and loss, he taught the whole country some lessons about grace and compassion. Sort of like a parent.

But congratulations, Mr. Clinton…(shrug)…I guess.
