"We had our climactic moment with Clinton," Druckerman says, "and I think everybody decided that we'd gone too far. We still publicly chastise, but, famously, Clinton's popularity was never higher than it was after he was impeached—and I think that's because we were ashamed at the way we'd treated him." Ashamed, it's safe to say, because we all have blood on our hands. Or a history of wide stances in the men's room. Or secret "stimulus packages" in Argentina. Whatever the case may be, it has always been human nature to lash out at others for displaying the traits we most loathe in ourselves. Perhaps we'd all be better served by adopting a more realistic attitude about our pretty-much-guaranteed-to-be-wandering eyes. We might be snakes, but at least we're not parasitic worms.
