In which the former President becomes a defense for violating Mormon rules against pre-marital sex…

Via ABC News:

Accused murderer Jodi Arias testified today that her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, had a “Bill Clinton view of sex” because Alexander was eager for oral and anal sex to get around Mormon church rules against premarital sex.

Arias’ remark came on her second day on the stand while describing, often in detail, what she said were the sexual demands by Alexander in the early days of their tumultuous affair that ended when she stabbed and shot Alexander to death.

Arias said that Alexander, a Mormon elder, skirted his church’s teachings on chastity by engaging Arias in oral and anal sex, which he said were technically not against Mormon rules.

“It seemed like Travis kind of had a Bill Clinton version of sex, where oral and anal sex were also sex to me, but not for him,” Arias told the court today.

Of course, Clinton’s view of sex branched out far beyond simply viewing different types of sex as technically not cheating.  According to Monica Lewinsky, Bubba also had an insatiable desire for threesomes.

So, is the Bill Clinton defense for cheating religious rules regarding sex a good one?

Depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.
