The Way To Ruin A Cute Story

I was just watching Billy Crystal on Letterman. Now, he's always pretty amusing, and he's on a roll, talking about his play, and his granddaughter. Then he starts talking about this charity golf thing he did, playing with Bill Clinton. He starts out saying that there's no one he respects more in the world than him. Okay, fine, whatever. So he starts the story, then stops long enough to insert, "At least if we were in Iraq and he was President, we'd know why.". What the? Sure thing. Geez. Then he proceeded with the story, which actually was very funny. Why he felt the need to turn it into a political statement is beyond me.

"At least if we were in Iraq and he was President, we'd know why.".

Since Clinton would bomb or fire cruise missiles into Iraq in order to distract from domestic problems/scandals a full scale invasion would have meant that he needed a really big distraction.

So I'm guessing that if we were in Iraq under Clinton that would have meant that he had done something on the order of impregnating an entire Girl Scout troupe.

If Clinton had ordered the invasion of Iraq, the news media would be full of how Joe Wilson, whose wife is a noted CIA weapons expert, had reported (as he did initially) that Iraq was trying to buy uranium from Niger, and of how Czech intelligence had reported a meeting between Mohammad Atta and one of Saddam's top agents.

"At least if we were in Iraq and [Clinton] was President, we'd know why."

Of course we'd know why: hot women!

With Clinton, why else?

Because he could, I suppose. I like Billy, but can only take so much psychologizing of relationships and genders before I get bored... :D

If AL GORE had got away with trying to steal the election and after Spet 11th and had GORE ordered the invasiaon of IRAQ you can bet that the liberal left-wing news media would,nt say a thing and CINDY SHEEHAN would,nt be parading around the country in her rediclous protest
