Former President Bill Clinton has been celebrating his 60th birthday at breakneck speed and he will be continuing to do so for months to come, according to news reports. Given the many laughs he has afforded me over the years, I hope he will proceed at a more restrained pace. I could not bear to see him make another run to the emergency room. The sudden whitening of his hair since his retirement from the White House and shrinkage of his once fleshy physique should admonish voluptuaries everywhere of the potential health threats from recreational sex.
On Aug. 19, the blessed day of his birth, he observed it with family and friends at Martha's Vineyard, the proletarian purlieu where he and his wife have vacationed for more than a decade, even when they were not on speaking terms. The next day he observed the historic event on Nantucket at Smith Bagley's vacation home, Inverness, where the Clintons have freeloaded for seven years. Carly Simon sang "Happy Birthday" to him. Now he is taking his birthday on the road. Early in September he will be celebrating his Aug. 19 nativity in Toronto. On Oct. 29 he will be in New York, and the Rolling Stones will be there to sing "Happy Birthday," along with other Clinton favorites. Our 42nd president will be combining the celebration of himself with fundraising. This is an innovation in narcissism, but then Clinton and like-minded members of his 1960s generation have been innovative narcissists for decades.
Not surprisingly they are not entering their 60s in a happy frame of mind. "I hate it," Clinton said regarding his 60th birthday. "For most of my working life, I was the youngest person doing whatever I was doing

Hmm... Sounds like the kind of place where wealthy elitists go to lord it over the proletarian inhabitants.
I used to like Ms. Simon.
In a nutshell, that is bubba.
Tyrell notes that most Americans don't share bubba's negativity toward turning 60, that 77 percent are quite satisfied with where they are. "That finding supports an argument I have been making about the 1960s generation for years, to wit, the majority were not New Age narcissists of the Clinton variety. Many were simply the next generation of conventional Americans, down to earth and sensible. Typical of them is another famous politician who just turned 60, President George W. Bush. "I really do feel young," the president enthused to People magazine, and of course owing to his healthy life of exercise and moderation, he is."
I agree with RT (the author).
It always all about Mr. Clinton. Simple as that.
He is an extraordinary disappointment and, well, a putz.
Depends on what "blow out the candle" is...
The man's narcissism is endless.
On August 15, addressing the World AIDS Conference, he babbled on and on about what a "bummer" it was to turn 60.
This, while millions of people are suffering and dying from a hideous disease, especially in Africa, where the average life expectancy in some countries is around 34 years.
