Clinton Library Opens; Conservatives Complain

The Clinton Library Opens; Conservatives Complain

Bill Clinton opened his presidential library today, to an audience of about 30,000 people, who all endured a steady, pouring rain to listen to Bill Clinton speak. President Bush, his father and Jimmy Carter all addressed the crowd. Former President Gerald Ford, 91, was unable to attend due to health problems.

Conservatives, of course, were quick to attack the library, apparently because they wanted on display Monica's blue dress and a re-telling of all the groundless "gate" controversies which were investigated at a cost of $70 million dollars.

In fact, one group of conservatives is leading an effort to build a "counter" library where they can present what they deem the "truth" about the Clinton administration.

The Counter Clinton Library group's mission is, according to their web site is to " a permanent thorn in the side of the Clintons as they try to hide and distort their anti-American, anti-family, anti-military legacy. Our goal: to let not one Clinton lie go unanswered, to let not one Clinton evasion go unquestioned and to let not one Clinton slander go unchallenged. It is up to us – regular Americans who care about the truth and about our country – to build from scratch the first-ever counter library."

Give me a fucking break.

"Supported by citizens who refuse to allow the Clintons to erase their White House record."

Funny how George W. Bush had his records as governor of Texas sent to his father's library and sealed. Isn't that erasing a record? Why are Bush's records sealed?

When are conservatives going to get over this bizarre obsession with Bill and Hillary Clinton? It just goes on and on and on, as if nothing else in the world mattered.

It's time to move on, conservatives. Look towards the future. I'm personally looking forward to the unveiling of the George W. Bush presidential library, which will most certainly have a wing of comic books (not the good ones) and pop-up books. You know, because Bush is not the sharpest tool in the shed.

If conservatives were expecting the Clinton library to have an extensive Lewinsky exhibit, maybe the Bush library can have a wing dedicated to Bush's failures: the Abu Ghraib photo exhibit; the names and photographs of all the soldiers killed in Iraq looking for Bush's WMDs, accompanied by the video footage of George W. Bush's appearance at the Radio and TV Correspondent's dinner on March 24, where he presented a slide show of pictures of him on his hands and knees, looking through the Oval Office, saying "Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be somewhere." That should be good for a laugh.

Maybe we'll even get a "Bushisms" display, where we can hear a man with an Ivy-league education speak as if he had been lobotomized.

Better yet, someone will build the "Counter Bush" library. I'll head up that effort.
