‘Nailing Bill Clinton is like trying to nail a fart to the wall’

The extent of scandals in Bill Clinton’s administration and the president’s uncanny ability to escape political harm from them led one well-known congressman to compare handling the ex–commander in chief to a fight with elusive flatulence.

“Nailing Bill Clinton is like trying to nail a fart to the wall,” former Rep. Bob Barr, R-Ga., reportedly said. “There’s a lot of smell and you know it’s there. You just aren’t sure where to nail.”

The account of the fragrant remark comes from Barr’s fellow Republican, former Rep. James Rogan of California, who led impeachment proceedings against Clinton in the U.S. House of Representatives.
