Default Political Word Association Game

Let's see how long we can keep this going... here's what you do: I'm going to start off saying a few words about something dealing with politics. Each reply must be related to that phrase in some way. You can use anything related to politics: taxes, lies, perjury, obstruction of justice, incompetence... anything!

I am going to start off by saying, "Bill & Hillary".

Yes, he is. He was born in Saudi Arabia. Don't believe me? Ask the FBI!

NEXT: Saddam Boussain (however it is you spell it)

Why do you hate Bush? I support him as our President and I feel he would have done better than Gore? *runs*

Spike30303, here's the skinny on YOUR guy, Bill Clinton . . .

No One Left to Lie To
The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton
by
Christopher Hitchens

[My remarks are in brackets.]

Preface: This little book is offered in the most cheerful and open polemical spirit, as an attack on a crooked president and a corrupt and reactionary administration.

Page 14: "Notice how they always trash the accusers," said Erik Tarloff, who has contributed
speeches for Clinton and Gore and who is married to Laura D'Andrea Tyson, former chair of
Clinton's Council of Economic Advisors. "They destroy their reputations. If Monica hadn't had that blue dress, they were getting ready to portray her as a fantasist and an erotomaniac."

P 15: Under Betsy Wright's supervision in the 1992 Clinton campaign, there was an entire operation funded with over $100,000 of campaign money, which included federal matching funds, to hire private detectives to go into the personal lives of women who were alleged to have had sex with Bill Clinton. To develop compromising material - blackmailing information, basically - to coerce them into signing affidavits saying they did not have sex with Bill Clinton. --(Dick Morris to CNBC)

P 16-17: Jarrett Stern, a private investigator, told ABC News . . . that he "wholeheartedly" believes
that (Kathleen) Willey was approached with a menacing message by a stranger jogging near her
Richmond home two days before her [Paula] Jones case testimony. Willey has said the man inquired
about whether she'd gotten the tires on her car repaired after they were mysteriously vandalized by
someone who drove masses of nails into all four of them. "Don't you get the message?" she has said
the man asked.

P 19: When news of this nasty deal (for political assistance with Clinton, Nate Landow, wealthy
Clinton fund-raiser demanded 10% of all income produced on land to be recovered by the
Cheyenne-Arapahoe, illegally seized by the federal government in 1869 ) - which was rejected by the
tribes - became public, the Democratic National Committee was forced to return (the $107,000
campaign fund donation) and the Senate Committee issued a report describing the "fleecing" of the
Indians by "a series of Democratic operators".

P 24: "The President, then, has lied under oath in a civil deposition, lied under oath in a criminal grand jury. He lied to the people, he lied to his Cabinet, he lied to his top aids, and now he's lied under oath to the Congress of the United States. There's no one left to lie to." (majority counsel of the House Judiciary Committee, David Schippers, a Democrat)

P 37: At the close of Mr. Clinton's tenure as governor, Arkansas was the only state in the union that did not have a civil rights statute.
. . . Clinton had begun his two years at the State House by inviting the venomous old segregationist Orval Faubus, the former governor of Arkansas, to a place of honor at the inaugural ceremony, but not even this was enough to protect him against vulgar, local accusations of "nigger loving".
[So Clinton brought in Orval Faubus to correct that mistaken notion of him in good ol' boy
Arkansas.]

P 38: And after 1980, Clinton clearly began to evolve a "Southern strategy" of his own. (In the
1992 run for the Democratic nomination) Clinton took care to have himself photographed at an
all-white golf club, and also standing at a prison farm photo-op, wearing his shades in the sunshine
while a crowd of uniformed black convicts broke rocks in the sun.

P 39: Clinton quit the thick of the New Hampshire primary, in January 1992, in order to fly back to
Arkansas and give personal supervision to the execution of Rickey Ray Rector, a black lumpen
failure who understood his charge and trial and sentence not at all. (He even saved his pecan pie
from his Last Meal "to eat later". Chaplain Dennis Pigman resigned from the prison system shortly afterwards, saying "We're not supposed to execute children", and calling Rector's execution "a horrible crime".)

P 46: Mrs. Clinton's prim little book, It Takes a Village, proposes sexual abstinence for the young.
[When conservatives propose sexual abstinence, they are ridiculed as simplistic, unrealistic, even stupid.]

Ibid: Going further than any Republican president had ever dared venture. . . Clinton proposed that a sixty-year federal commitment to children in poverty be scrapped, and the whole problem be referred to the budget-conscious fifty states.

P 50: Indeed she (Paula Jones) implied that it would have taken two of his (Clinton's) phalluses to make one normal one, which could even be part of the reason why he paid her the sum of $840,000
to keep her quiet.

P 51: (Playwright Arthur Miller) "Then there is the color element. Mr. Clinton, according to Toni Morrison, the Nobel Prize-winning novelist, is our first black President, the first to come from the broken home, the alcoholic mother, the under-the-bridge shadows of our ranking systems."

We can divine blackness by the following symptoms: broken homes, alcoholic mothers,
under-the-bridge habits (and presumable from the rest of Miller's senescent musings) the tendency to sexual predation and to shameless perjury about same.

P 68: A state survey of htose dropped between July 1996 and March 1997 found that only 29
percent of those dismissed from welfare had found employment - "employment" being defined as
earning $100 over three months.
[Clinton "shreds the welfare net", but liberals spare their own party faithful such derisiveness.]

P 69: By 1997, all economic analysts were showing an abrupt and widening gap in income
distribution in the United States, with many more super-rich and many more abjectly poor, and an
astonishing increase in the number of "working poor", unable to transcent officially defined poverty.
[The rich got richer and the poor got poorer. Oops. Sorry. I forgot. That was ONLY in the
Reagan administration.]

P 70: Looking back, George Stephanopoulos shudders to recall the moment in 1992 when a
reporter handed him a Xeroxed copy of Clinton's draft notice. This, after candidate Clinton assured him that no such summons had ever been issued, and instructed him to say so.

P 73: The Clinton administration contrived the feat of being the only major government in the West to make no comment on the arrest of General Pinochet, despite the existence of outstanding cases of American citizens murdered on his direct instructions.
[This should be no surprise, since Clinton pardoned Puerto Rican terrorists, convicted in court of murdering Americans.]

P 74: Clinton claimed, in his State of the Union address in January 1999, that there had been a
terrible shortfall in military expenditure since the middle of 1985 - high noon of the Reagan era.
[The bulk of this military shortfall occured in the Clinton administration, of course.]

P 77: The honest and the powerless have a vested interest in a politician who cannot be bought,
whereas the powerful and the dishonest have already begun to haggle over the tab while the
acceptance speech is still being written. And, even in a political system renowned worldwide for its venality, Bill Clinton seemed anxious to be bought, and willing if not indeed eager to advertise the fact in advance.

P 78: Mr. Clinton held precisely two Cabinet meetings - count them - in 1998. At the first one, immediately after the first Lewinsky revelation in January, he convened his team and asked them to step outside in the street and echo his falsehoods, which many of them did. At the second one, in August, he told them that he was moving to Plan B, and telling some part of the truth. (Afterwards, one cabinet member) murmured thoughtfully, "He'll say anything".

P 79: It was suggested by the First Lady herself that her husband's off-the-record meetings with a
female intern were a form of "ministry".
[A "ministry" Jesse Jackson knows all too well.]

P 80: It remains a fact that in all his decades of logorrhea Clinton has failed to make a single remark (absent some lame catch phrase like "It all depends on what the meaning of 'is' is") that could possible adhere to the cortex of a thinking human being.

P 83: There remains the irony of Amendments 413 and 415 of Clinton's own crime bill, signed into
law in September 1994, which permit a defendant in a sexual harassment lawsuit to be asked under
oath about his other sexual entanglements. Lobbied by certain feminists for the inclusion of these amendments, Clinton had professed himself shocked htat such a law was not already on the books. Thus when caught in his own law, and required by a Supreme Court vote of 9-0 to answer the questions, Clinton would commit various common law crimes if he decided to do other than tell the
truth, let alone if he decided to recruit subordinates to lie.

P 109: (My friend, Sidney Blumenthal, said) Monica Lewinsky had been threatening the president.

(It is obvious to me that) . . . a president cannot be interrupted - except conceivably by his wife - in his "own" Oval Office.

P 111: The consequences in my own life have made a literal truth out of what I had once written only metaphorically: Clintonism poisons everything it touches.

P 113: This is the tawdry legacy of a sub-Camelot court, where unchecked greed, thuggery, and
egotism were allowed to operate just above the law, and well beneath contempt.
