Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton Rache Maddow

Good news for Rachel Maddow: Someone's paying attention to her program

It’s sad when two guys who have so much in common can’t get along.

Take Bill Clinton and Rachel Maddow, for example. They’re both Rhodes Scholars. They’re both good liberals. Why under different circumstances, you could imagine the two of them going out and chasing chicks together.

And yet, they feud.

Politico has the sad story:

Bill Clinton flashed irritation at MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and other liberals Monday for failing to appreciate the successes of his presidency.

“One of the leading television commentators on one of our liberal cable channels said I was the best Republican president the country ever produced, which would come [as] quite a surprise to the Republicans, half of whom still think I’m a closet communist,” Clinton said during an appearance with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

Clinton didn’t mention Maddow by name, but she made that comment on her March 31 show.

“What she meant by that was I didn’t necessarily follow their ‘conventional wisdom,’” he said. “I said, ‘What do you mean?!’”

Clinton said he accomplished more for the poor and middle class than traditional, New Deal-era liberalism ever could have. He touted his welfare-to-work program, which he said cut the rolls by 60 percent.

We hope these two can patch things up, because it’s going to be a lonely few years for liberals and they’re going to need all the friends they can get.

bill clinton-weiner head

Bill wanted to play a game of Bridesmaid Bingo, but Hillary had other ideas

Is it possible for a reporter to combine the words “Clinton”, “head”, and “Weiner” in the same sentence without some editor saying, “Nah, can’t do that.”

Apparently, it is possible at WCBS-TV, the CBS-owned station in New York, because here’s how the station presented a story on its website last weekend:

Bill Clinton To Head Rep. Weiner Wedding

Call him the officiator-in-chief: Former President Bill Clinton will preside at the wedding of New York Rep. Anthony Weiner to a longtime aide of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The 45-year-old congressman and his 34-year-old fiancee, Huma Abedin, are to be married Saturday at the Oheka Castle in Huntington on Long Island. The 19,000 square-foot home and extensive grounds have been host to many high-profile weddings, including Kevin Jonas of the Jonas Brothers to Danielle Deleasa last December.

If there is a God in heaven, he will not allow the bride to wear a blue dress.

kkk clinton byrd

Speaking at the memorial for the deceased Klan Kleagle Robert Byrd, William Jefferson Davis Clinton said it’s alright to join the Ku Klux Klan. Why?

Because Byrd needed to get elected.

And, of course, for members of the Clinton administration, getting elected improves one’s chances of having sexual encounters with staff assistants, interns, and New Age masseuses.

Here is our list of the top ten other reasons Bill Clinton thinks joining the KKK is OK:

    10. Robes also double as togas for White House office parties.
    9. Saturday Night Klan Monte Carlo night is perfect excuse for ditching the old lady and meeting the mistresses.
    8. Grand Dragon sounds kind of Bruce Lee, doesn’t it?
    7. Look on Obama’s face when former president shows up in full Klan regalia is priceless
    6. The Pope already has Hitler Youth and Volkstrum vote tied up.
    5. Few white separatists among D.C. paparazzi.
    4. Fond memories of wearing the hood and robe, sneaking up to Ted Kennedy, and saying, “Where are all the white women?”
    3. There’s no barbecue like a Klan barbecue.
    2. DNA stains don’t show up on white sheets like they do on blue dresses
    1. Good laugh every time Gore wins popular vote for Grand Dragon, but loses electoral college.

No, he didn’t really, but Bubba did say something almost as stupid at Senator Robert Byrd’s funeral.

According to the Hill, “Former President Bill Clinton explained the late Sen. Robert Byrd’s (D-W.V.) membership in the Ku Klux Klan Friday by claiming Byrd was simply trying to get elected.”

The article continued by saying, “Speaking at Byrd’s funeral in Charleston today, Clinton seemed to criticize newspaper eulogies that dwelled on Byrd’s association with the Klan.”

“They mention that he once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan, and what does that mean? I’ll tell you what it means,” Clinton said. “He was a country boy from the hills and hollows of West Virginia. He was trying to get elected. And maybe he did something he shouldn’t have done, and he spent the rest of his life making it up. And that’s what a good person does. There are no perfect people. There certainly are no perfect politicians.”

The Obama administration offers equal opportunity forgiveness. On the one hand, they forgive Klan members while on the other hand, they forgive Black Panthers.

Call us believers when they start forgiving conservatives.

bill clinton bible

Hypocrites 3:16 says, "Thou shalt not lie with women who chargeth when thou can getteth an intern for free."

We used to think Bill Clinton was shameless. Now we’re beginning to think he’s just clueless.

The former President just signed his name to a Democrat fundraising letter in which he calls Republican Louisiana Senator David Vitter an “admitted sinner.”

The NY Post reports the hypocritical hilarity:

Former President Clinton has sent out a fundraising letter on behalf of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee under his own name warning that Republicans are trying to “derail’ President Obama’s agenda.

Not much unexpected there.

But along with the letter, Clinton has included a flyer from the DSCC that’s bound to raise eyebrows.

“DSCC funds go towards efforts to unseat far-right Republican senators like admitted sinner David Vitter…” the flyer says, referring to the Louisiana senator who admitted patronizing a prostitution service when he was in the House.

Vitter has been a Clinton foe for a long time, calling on President Clinton to step down in 1998 because of his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

So what makes Vitter a sinner in the eyes of serial womanizer Bill Clinton?

Is it the fact that Vitter paid for sex, but Clinton got it for free? Or that Vitter “admitted” it, but Clinton didn’t?

Bill Clinton Barack Obama pick up sand

Pundits have been wondering what Barack Obama and Bill Clinton talked about at their private lunch last week. Well, wonder no more.’s microphones were there to record the private tête-à-tête.

Clinton: Here’s what you gotta do, Barack.
Obama: I’m taking notes.
Clinton: Visit a beach in Louisiana.
Obama: Good idea. It’s been a while since America’s seen my sculpted pecs.
Clinton: Cool down, big fella. We’re going for the concerned leader shot. I want you to squat in the sand.
Obama: Squat?
Clinton: In the sand. Then get a faraway look on your face that says, “It’s me against the world.”
Obama: Then what?
Clinton: Then you reach down and pick up a little something out of the sand.
Obama: Like what?
Clinton: Well, I picked up rocks in Normandy in ’94. The press ate it up. But since this is an oil spill photo op, pick up something oily.
Obama: How about one of those little oil balls?
Clinton: (laughing) Ha, ha, ha. Oil Balls. That’s what Monica called me.
Obama: You’re sure this will work, Bill?
Clinton: Trust me. The press eats this stuff up. (Aside) I can’t believe Hillary lost to this guy.

Despite the thrill he gets up his leg whenever Barack Obama speaks, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews played it pretty straight during the Clinton impeachment debacle. And as he demonstrates in this clip, one can safely assume that was because he’s no fan of the Clintons.

Matthews: Let’s take a look at Rush — I have to do this — Rush Limbaugh today impersonating Bill Clinton and assessing the situation. Let’s listen to Rushbo.

Andrea Mitchell: Oh dear!

(Begin video clip)

Rush: (Doing Clinton impression) I’m going to kiss your (BLEEP) if you kiss my (BLEEP). I’ll make sure that you — if you come groveling to me, I’ll be happy to help you out here. Now look at what has happened here, they go to Bill Clinton. He’s famous for getting people jobs. Monica Lewinsky offered a job at Revlon. She was offered a job at the United Nations. She didn’t take any of them. But they’ve got Bill Clinton. Isn’t it great, folks, that they found a guy who they know will commit perjury to carry the water here?

(End video clip)

Matthews: Well sometimes even he can get it right. That was pretty good lampooning, I’ve got to say.

“That was pretty good lampooning”? Very strange wording and oddly reminiscent of Richard Nixon saying to David Frost, “Do any fornicating this weekend?”

Or is it just us?

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said he served in Vietnam, but never left the safety of the United States. And he said that he was captain of Harvard’s swim team, but he wasn’t even a member of the team.

But he’s not the only politician who’s attempted to advance his career with a resume-enhancing tall tale or two. Just the latest.

For example:

1. The imaginary Obama-Kennedy connection


Sen. Barack Obama attempted to link himself to the Kennedy legacy when he said JFK’s family had “paid for his Kenyan father to travel to America on a student scholarship and thus meet his Kansan mother.”

But the Washington Post reveals the truth: “Contrary to Obama’s claims in speeches in January at American University and in Selma last year, the Kennedy family did not provide the funding for a September 1959 airlift of 81 Kenyan students to the United States that included Obama’s father. According to historical records and interviews with participants, the Kennedys were first approached for support for the program nearly a year later, in July 1960. The family responded with a $100,000 donation, most of which went to pay for a second airlift in September 1960.”

bill clinton donation statue

Statue of Bill Clinton recently erected outside the Chutzpah Hall of Fame.

In a lame effort to repay Hilary’s campaign debt, Bill Clinton is offering the chance to spend a day of his valuable time with you for a mere $5 donation.

Maybe a better contest would be “How much would you pay NOT to spend a day with Bill Clinton?”

ABC News has the story:

The Hillary Clinton for President campaign is offering anyone who donates at least $5 over the course of the next week a chance to be selected to fly to New York and spend the day with Bill Clinton.

“Hillary’s campaign still has a few vestiges of debt that I know she would like to see paid in full. Will you reach out today to help Hillary this one last time?,” Bill Clinton asks his wife’s campaign supporters in an email appeal.

As of April 1, the Clinton presidential campaign had $623,740.13 in the bank according to the latest campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission. However, the committee also reported $771,000.00 remaining in debts and obligations.

The crack investigative team at has also uncovered a remaining debt on the FEC books for Bill Clinton as well – to the tune of $319,630.

But this begs the question, what happened to all the money Bill and Hillary got for their memoirs, speaking engagements and dubious “business contacts”? The Clintons 2008 tax returns indicated that they had made an astounding $109 Million over the prior eight years.

Guess it’s better to dump your debt on the backs of the working people than dip into your own fortune. That’s Ruling Class 101.

First place: One day with Bill Clinton. Second Place: One week with Bill Clinton. And we’re all basically losers, because this guy never seems to go away.

Another Democrat Congressman announced his retreat retirement yesterday.

But Arkansas’ Rep. Marion Berry didn’t go out quietly. He says he warned President Obama that 2010 could be a bloodbath like 1994 for Democrats and he was shocked by the President’s narcissistic response.

According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette:

Berry recounted meetings with White House officials, reminiscent of some during the Clinton days, where he and others urged them not to force Blue Dogs “off into that swamp” of supporting bills that would be unpopular with voters back home.

“I’ve been doing that with this White House, and they just don’t seem to give it any credibility at all,” Berry said. “They just kept telling us how good it was going to be. The president himself, when that was brought up in one group, said, ‘Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me.’ We’re going to see how much difference that makes now.”

Got that? President Obama, whose approval ratings are in the toilet, whose personal appeals to voters in New Jersey, Virginia, and Massachusetts were worthless, who has foisted this hugely unpopular socialist agenda on the people of the United States, actually thinks his personal charisma will get Democrats elected in 2010.

It’s perfect that on the day this story comes out that the White House should release this photo of Barack Obama admiring himself in a mirror.

Statue of Bill Clinton waving at a cute Albanian chick with his left hand while holding his little black book in his right hand

Statue of Bill Clinton waving at a cute Serbian chick with his left hand while holding his little black book in his right hand

We think it was for bombing the hell out of the Serbs. It could just as well could have been for “accidentally” bombing the Chinese embassy in Belgrade. We’re not really sure.

Whatever it was he did, those wacky Albanians are erecting (you’ll pardon the choice of words) a statue in his honor for having done it.

“Thousands of ethnic Albanians braved low temperatures and a cold wind in Kosovo’s capital Pristina to welcome former President Bill Clinton on Sunday as he attended the unveiling of an 11-foot (3.5-meter) statue of himself on a key boulevard that also bears his name.

“Clinton is celebrated as a hero by Kosovo’s ethnic Albanian majority for launching NATO’s bombing campaign against Yugoslavia in 1999 that stopped the brutal Serb forces’ crackdown on independence-seeking ethnic Albanians.”

Are you reading this, President Obama? If you think you’re going to get a statue and a street named after you, your gonna have to kill a whole lot more people. Let’s step it up!

NBC was unable to book the Greatest President In History for consecutive appearances on Meet the Press. So they went with Bill Clinton who reassured the left that there won’t be a repeat of the ’94 Democrat debacle.

“There’s no way they can make it that bad,” Clinton said. “The Democrats haven’t taken on the gun lobby like I did and they took 15 of our members out. So I don’t think, it’ll be, whatever happens, it’ll be manageable for the president.”

After speaking of the weakness of the current Republican party, Clinton was asked if the vast right wing conspiracy that took him down still exists. “Oh, you bet,” said Clinton. “Sure it is. It’s not as strong as it was, because America has changed demographically, but it’s as virulent as it was.”

So the vast right wing conspiracy still exists?

Wonder if she still has that blue dress.

America's Second Black President (left) and America's First Black President (right)

America's Second Black President (left) and America's First Black President (right)

Author Toni Morrison may have called Bill Clinton our first black president, but Mellissa Harris-Lacewell, an associate professor of African-American Studies at Princeton, begs to differ. She thinks he may be a racist.

In a recent article published in the Nation Magazine she takes issues with remarks made by former President Bill Clinton on the Larry King Show.

While on the show, the former President said, “While I have devoted my life to getting rid of racism, I think this [health care] is a fight that my president and our party — this is one we need to win on the merits.” To which Harris-Lacewell remarked, “This statement required a double take. President Clinton said that he has devoted his life to getting rid of racism? And no one challenged this assertion?”

“Clinton used welfare reform and crime legislation to cement his position as a moderate ‘new’ Democrat,” she added. “Clinton’s policies made life substantially more difficult for poor black mothers and led to the incarceration of tens of thousands more black men. Repeatedly during his presidency Clinton found his way to the center by ignoring the material needs of black communities.”

She went on to say America’s First Black President “has a very checkered past involving racial innuendo, stereotypes and racialized political strategies.”

But she may as well have been speaking about America’s Second Black President.

One would think NBC wouldn’t have to ask Bill Clinton’s opinion on Iran and Afghanistan. Because everyone knows his solution to dealing with terrorists is to call the police. Nevertheless, they spent eleven minutes asking the ex-President about his wife’s issues. International issues, that is.

No one’s ever accused us of being Hillary Clinton fans, but even we can understand why she’s getting really tired of carrying Bill’s lunchbox and being the Secretary of State in name only. Being betrayed by your boss and husband at the same time would wear on anyone’s nerves.

By the way, are we the only one’s who noticed the irony of this story being on the “front page” of MSNBC’s website, while the story “Ex-Clinton aide indicted for ‘stealing’ millions – Democratic fundraiser with links to Obama is charged in pyramid scheme” was buried in the politics section?

Maybe NBC can interview Chealsea Clinton next and ask her what mom and dad think about that.

“The Path to 9/11,” a two-part five-hour miniseries, aired only once on ABC in 2006, yet is still not available on DVD.

Why? The series was a $40 million investment for the network which drew 25 million viewers and received seven Emmy nominations. So why wouldn’t the network want to recoup its investment?

The suppression and censorship appear to be due to pure politics and legacy-protection, primarily on behalf of the Clintons, although neither Bill Clinton nor George W. Bush came off in a particularly heroic light in the film.

As The Los Angeles Times reported in 2007, “the miniseries’ writer, Cyrus Nowrasteh, believes it’s crystal clear: Powerful forces are out to protect Bill Clinton’s presidential legacy and shield Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) from any potential collateral damage in her bid for the White House.

“Nowrasteh, also one of the miniseries’ many producers, said he was told by a top executive at ABC Studios that ‘if Hillary weren’t running for president, this wouldn’t be a problem.'”

Perhaps Hillary is still holding out hopes for the nomination in 2012. Otherwise this film certainly ought to be available by now.

Bill Clinton laughs at the thought of people paying $50 to hear him speak.

Bill Clinton laughs at the thought of people paying $50 to hear him speak.

This is embarrassing for the former President. Very embarrassing. Which is exactly why we enjoy it so damn much.

What do you do when you’ve agreed to pay Bill Clinton a small fortune to give a speech, but ticket sales are, shall we say, less vigorous than expected?

If you’re the folks who organized the former president’s Saturday speech in Toronto, you take two steps. One: you quickly reconfigure stadium seating so it looks smaller and, therefore, fuller. Two: You slash the price of the remaining tickets to an embarrassingly low $5 at the door.

Only about 7,000 tickets were pre-sold for yesterday’s speech, a drop in the proverbial bucket compared to the 25,000 tickets the organizers expected to sell.

“I’m the eternal optimist. I thought we were just going to sell like crazy at the very beginning and it looks like we’re going to sell more towards the end of this sales cycle,” spokesman David Bednar noted. “I can almost guarantee that we will not sell out.”

Tickets were originally priced at $20, $40 and $50. The good seats sold out, but thousands of the cheaper tickets are, shall we say, still available.

Maybe the Razorbacks haven’t exactly gone on an apology tour like Barack Obama did, but they’ve done the next best thing: they responded to a Public Policy poll in ways the leftist polling organization won’t like. Not at all.

Consider these results:

56% of voters in the state disapprove of the job Obama is doing so far as President, with just 40% approving. Those numbers are down from a March Arkansas survey that found the spread at a favorable 47/45. 72% of Democrats, 30% of independents, and 9% of Republicans give him good marks.

On health care, just 29% of Arkansans say they support Obama’s plans with 60% opposed. On that front he has the support of only 54% of Democrats and 20% of independents.

When asked whether they think Obama or (Rush) Limbaugh has a better vision for the country, 55% of respondents selected Limbaugh in spite of the fact only 35% of them have a favorable opinion of him, compared to 44% unfavorable.

“These numbers, taken together, show why Blanche Lincoln’s Senate seat is becoming an enticing target for Republicans in spite of their candidate recruitment issues,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “There are few states that have an electorate more conservative than Arkansas’ and if the GOP can effectively nationalize the race it’ll be close.”

Hey, these people were considered progressive geniuses when they gave us America’s First Black President. How’d they turn into such unlightened boobs now that we have another First Black President?

The Daily Mail UK reveals details about Euna Lee and Laura Ling that make them seem much less sympathetic

The Daily Mail UK reveals details about Euna Lee and Laura Ling that make them seem much less sympathetic

You’ve undoubtedly read all about (a) the horrible ordeal suffered by American reporters Laura Ling and Euna Lee at the hands of the North Koreans and (b) how they were “rescued” by Bill Clinton, the daring former president.

For anyone who gave the details of this story the slightest thought, the veracity of (a) is called into question by obvious PR spin surrounding (b).

Here’s a perspective you’ve probably never seen, as reported by the UK Daily Mail:

But who are these two fresh-faced women? What were they doing in North Korea, undoubtedly one of the most dangerous and repressed places in the world, and how on earth did they get themselves into what a friend jauntily described on one website as ‘a bit of a disastrous pickle’?

… they were hopelessly ill-prepared for their ‘mission’ to the Chinese-Korean border, that they were working for a minor television organisation run by a former ambulance-chasing lawyer…

Laura, 32, describes herself as a ‘Chinese American’, but a friend said: ‘She was brought up as a true Valley girl [an upper middle-class girl]. She’s about as Chinese as the cuisine at Chin Chin [a popular Californian-Chinese restaurant chain].’

Laura is said to be the duo’s ‘driving force’. Euna, 36, who had little journalism experience and counted making a yoga video as a career highlight, was her devoted lackey, who reportedly held the video camera as Laura ‘danced around’ on the North Korean side of the border.

For Euna, who was born in South Korea but moved to California when she was a university student, it was her first overseas assignment. The trip was Laura’s second ‘dangerous’ foreign job for Current, a Left-wing cable television network based in San Francisco that rather grandly aspires to ‘democratise’ the news.

The two women were sent to China in March to do a report about North Korean refugees pouring over the border. A source familiar with Current said: ‘It was the sort of bleeding-hearts liberal story that would play well to their target market. But then Laura decided to take it a step further.’


‘Laura is sweet but not very street-smart,’ said (a long-time Democratic Party insider). ‘She was sent to China to make a routine programme about refugees crossing the border from North Korea but, according to Kim Jong Il’s people, she was walking across the border and leaping about.

‘The official North Korean report said Euna was holding the camera. Of course, there was speculation they were working for the CIA. Forget that. This has been a farce. It couldn’t be more embarrassing for Obama and the agency. No one hired these girls. No one in Washington had ever heard about them until they were captured by the North Koreans.

‘From everything I have heard about Laura, she is a Valley girl who wanted to play in the big league. I think she did this as a stunt to compete with her sister. Lisa Ling works with people like Oprah. Laura earns peanuts at a network no one has heard of. This was her big chance.’

On March 17, Laura and Euna were arrested by North Korean soldiers after they ignored orders to stop filming. Then they vanished into the maw of the most isolated nation on Earth.


In fact, their ‘ordeal’ appears to have been far from tough. According to Professor Han Park, an American academic who was visiting North Korea at the time, they were housed in a guest villa designed for foreign visitors outside the capital of Pyongyang.

Professor Park said that Korean officials laughed at any suggestion that the women were receiving harsh treatment. ‘We are not Guantanamo,’ he was told.


Indeed, (Ling’s) worst complaint was that her rice tasted like ‘rocks’.

The Clinton confidant said: ‘The women were a prize. Most people in North Korea would be lucky to be treated the way those girls were.’

Call us cold-hearted, but after reading the Daily Mail piece in full, we have a lot less sympathy for Ling and Lee.

They caused their own problem by crossing the border illegally and “leaping about” for the camera. They were held for 140 days in the relative luxury of a guest villa normally reserved for foreign visitors. And they received treatment that would have made them the envy of the average North Korean.

Fact is, contestants on Survivor endure greater hardships than those faced by the American reporters. But like the winners of Survivor, Ling and Lee are already lining up book and TV deals that will pay them millions.

Only in America. And North Korea.

Poor Gore. Even pot-bellied, little tinhorn dictators aren't buying his act.

Poor Gore. Even pot-bellied, little tinhorn dictators aren't buying his act.

The UK Daily Mail’s story of the “rescue” of the two American reporters was a terrific piece of reporting that swept away all the PR spin. It’s packed with fascinating little nuggets. For example:

For Bill Clinton, it was an easy mission. In a phone call to her husband a month ago, Laura (Ling) said that if Clinton turned up, she and Euna (Lee) would be granted amnesty.

The Clinton insider said: ‘Obama’s people suggested sending Al Gore, but Kim Jong Il only wanted Bill.

They didn’t want Al Gore. Proof that Americans and North Koreans, people from two very different cultures, have a lot in common.

"Just me and two hot Asian chicks," the former President mused, "alone in an airplane for fifteen hours."

"Just me and two hot Asian chicks," the former President mused, "alone in an airplane for fifteen hours."

Last week was like old times for the American media. According to the template, former President Bill Clinton flew into enemy territory and used the power of his charm to free two innocent American journalists who had been unlawfully arrested by the evil North Koreans.

Unfortunately, none of it is true.

Luckily, Sunday’s London Daily Mail that reveals details about the so-called “rescue” that have been conspicuously absent in the American media:

…Bill Clinton has found it increasingly hard to reconcile himself to life on the sidelines. When asked to undertake a ‘sensitive’ mission to ‘rescue’ the pair, he jumped at the chance.

He was picked up at an airport near his home in the bucolic New York suburb of Chappaqua by a private jet laid on by the Dow Chemical company. It flew him 3,000 miles to Burbank, California, where he boarded a Boeing 737 provided by Steve Bing, one of his best friends and a generous contributor to the Clinton Foundation, the charity with which he has been occupying his post-Presidential years.

Jimmy Kimmel gets less hype than Conan O’Brien and David Letterman, but night-in and night-out, he’s by far the funniest of the three late night hosts.

Here’s Kimmel’s concept of how Hollywood might handle its version of the “President-Clinton-rescues-two-reporters” story.

Thanks, Jimmy. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

(Actually, we couldn’t have said it nearly as well, but by saying “we couldn’t have said it better” we subconsciously elevate ourselves to Kimmel’s level in your mind. At least that’s our theory. How’s it working?)

Looks like Hillary’s feeling a bit insecure about Bill’s recent adventure in North Korea.

A Congolese translator, struggling to translate a Congolese student’s question, made the mistake of asking, “What does Mr. Clinton think through the mouth of Mrs Clinton…?”

What’s that? Did that translator imply that Hillary is merely Bill’s puppet?

Bill Clinton’s “triumphant” return from North Korea with two U.S. journalists was staged by a celebrity public-relations firm.

Clinton’s mission to return Laura Ling and Euna Lee was bankrolled by entertainment mogul Steve Bing. The Hollywood gazillionaire donated his private Boeing 737 and then chipped in another $200,000 in fuel and other costs.

This is not Ronald McDonald. You may have been confused by the bright red nose.

This is not Ronald McDonald. You may have been confused by the bright red nose.

William H. Clinton (the “H” stands for Hypocrite) was the headline speaker at an event sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control’s Weight of the Nation conference. The whole point of the conference is to combat obesity.

In a cruel case of perception versus reality, the former President was photographed coming out of a McDonald’s last weekend after eating a double hamburger, onion rings, French fries, and a milk shake.

You gotta be kidding.

What bonehead came up with the idea of making Bill Clinton a spokesman for healthy living?

This guy’s doughier than Poppin’ Fresh. If the CDC ever decides to fight the tragic epidemic of white, fleshy, doughy thighs, Bill Clinton could be the before half of the poster. He’s in worse shape than the economy.  If he ran away, they’d have to use all four sides of the milk carton.

OK, we’re done.

Former Louisiana Congressman William Jefferson is accused of taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from a Nigerian businessman in exchange for brokering deals between an American company and a Nigerian startup.

Jefferson’s undoubtedly a crook, but we have to give him a lot of credit.

He may be the only guy who ever got money out of one of those emails from Nigeria.
