Gag me with a coke spoon!

The longer this campaign season goes on, the more meretricious it becomes. Now the Clinton folks are about to attack Obama for drug use. Well, gag me with a coke spoon! If this doesn’t win the hypocrisy sweepstakes, what does? All they are doing is reminding us of one of Bill’s most famous myriad howlers – “I tried it but I didn’t inhale” …. right up there with “I didn’t have sex with that woman.”

Meanwhile, on the Republican side, we have the Penguin March of the Hypocrites – three guys all pretending to be more socially conservative than they are (Giuliani, Romney, Thompson) and a new guy who apparently doesn’t believe in evolution, but says that doesn’t matter.

Of course on the Dem side we have a guy who says he’s seen UFO’s (with Shirley MacLaine), so maybe they could work together on a bipartisan ticket.

That’s what we want, isn’t it, bipartisanship? [Either that or someone qualified to be president.-ed. Don’t be greedy. By the way, I’ve been meaning to ask you, have you ever used drugs? For cholesterol? Don’t be smart. Didn’t you used to hang out with Timothy Leary? Who?]
