As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Bill Clinton, Strange Stray Cat

In homage to the decline of a nation where a former president who cheated on his wife with a White House intern in the Oval Office and was impeached for lying to a federal prosecutor could be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by the sitting president, Barack Obama, I give you the Rolling Stones’ Stray Cat Blues.

“The Presidential Medal of Freedom goes to men and women who have dedicated their own lives to enriching ours,” said President Obama in a statement announcing the award Thursday.

It would seem a prerequisite that the enriching have been done with pants on.

Party on, Bill.

  1. Kinda’ makes me wanna’ go buy a navy dress at The Gap.

    I doubt Monica’s will ever be displayed at the Smithsonian. If so, will the stain still be visible?

  2. We’re all adults here, right? Back in July 1999, comedian ChrisRock released an album, “Bigger and Blacker” that was a great success for him.
    One of his best routines from that album about the Clinton scandal and what he thought of MrsClinton at that time:

    “Comedians like Chris Rock had a field day making fun of her in his Bigger & Blacker show. I remember Chris Rock remarking that Hillary should have learned to be good in bed. He said that Hillary was to blame for her husband having an affair because she never bothered to give him oral sex.”

    ChrisRock got a standing ovation from the mostly Black audience for that bit. Black people didn’t like Hillary then.

    Now, who knows how they feel about her.
