I’ll Wipe That Smirk Off Your Face

I must say it was very satisfying to see Bill Clinton get in Chris Wallace’s face on Sunday. I especially hooted with delight when he referenced “that smirk” on Wallace’s face. It’s always there. He just can’t help it. He’s a smirking, self-important expletive. One of our favorite UPI tales was from the late ‘80s when a young UPI reporter was walking up to a news conference next to Chris Wallace and said, “Hi, Chris.” CW shot back, “That’s Mr. Wallace to you.” It was one of those catch phrases all of us Unipressers used thereafter in a variety of ridiculous contexts.
