Satire Alert: Bill Clinton Runs for the Presidency!

Here's a great bit of satire from the humorists at The Onion.

The fake headline: "Bill Clinton: 'Screw It, I'm Running for President.'"

You know, there is a certain grain of truth in all this, as Bill's been out heavily campaigning for Hillary -- and usually doing it by savagely attacking Barack Obama. I'm remembering Obama's comment at a recent debate that he doesn't know whom he's running against -- Bill or Hillary.

In any case, the Clinton political machine is in full roar. Personally, I find the entire spectacle of Bill to be increasingly annoying. He's an ex-President, but I don't think he's willing to step aside gracefully. He is utterly addicted to attention and seems to think he's still in the spotlight. And I don't like how he's throwing his "influence" around, and I am not at all liking the "2-headed monster" of Bill + Hillary together.

Love him or hate him, the elder President Bush stayed out of the spotlight for the most part during W.'s campaigns.

Besides, I find Hillary's talk of "change" to be really funny. Change? While Bill is out on the campaign trail re-living his glory days? The Clintons are the ultimate Washington insiders and power-players. Change, indeed!

I'm sorry, but I'm afraid I missed the satire part in this satire.

This is so BLOODY serious. Argh!

The only credit I can give to the 2-headed monster is that they managed to freak Obama out and to make him playing their game. Now, it's "It's the identity, stupid!" back and forth. Yikes!

What a blunder by Obama - to first come across as the messiah of bipartisanship who walks on the water - and then messing with the Clintons like they were members of two Vietnamese tabacco mafia clans in the Eastern part of Berlin!
