In my classes, as an extra-credit assignment, I ask the students for the

[White House Press conference February 2000] Mr. Clinton. You looked
straight into the camera and waived your crooked finger and said that
quote "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms Lewinski; I
did not tell anyone to lie". You testified under oath that you did not
have sexual relations with Ms. Lewinski as you understood sexual
relations to be defined by the court. You even met Dr. Lewinski, a
father like you, in the Oval Office where you had been diddling his
daughter. Dr. Lewinski even shook the hand that shook the dick that was
in his daughter's mouth. My question, Mr. President, is if your daughter
Chelsea had decided to "do a Lewinski" on her prof at Stanford, in order
say to improve her chemistry grade, would that be: a) not sexual; b) not
an abuse of power on the part of the prof. no matter what gusto Chelsea
might have put into it; c) a personal matter and not anyone's business;
d) just boys being boys and doing what they are hardwired to do?

[Press Conference, Bush Ranch, 2003] Mr. Bush. Given that the nature,
objectives, intentions, proclivities and activities of any organization
says a lot about the character and intentions of those in it, and given
that you have managed to acquire access to nuclear [and by the way
that's nuclear not "nuculur"] codes and warmaking systems, why is it
that you feel that the public, whose votes you are soliciting, has no
right to know about your membership in Skull and Bones along with the
real nature and intentions of this secret occult cabal to which you

[Press Conference, Washington, D.C. 2003] Mr. Bush, you routinely trade
on your supposed born-again Christianity and claim to have employed the
concept of WWJD? (What Would Jesus Do?) in your decision making. My
Question is, Mr. Resident, would Jesus lay naked in a coffin, jacking
off, while recounting his supposed sexual experiences? Would Jesus
engage in ritualistic grave robbing of Native remains like those of
Geronimo? Would Jesus conspire to deprive African-Americans and others
of their right to vote in places like Florida? Would Jesus finance
Hitler from 1924 onward, plot to overthrow the U.S. government under
FDR, sell nazi securities AFTER Pearl Harbor and set up a synthetic fuel
plant at Auschwitz, using slave labor, as your grandfather Prescott Bush
and great grandfather George Herbert Walker did? Would Jesus belong to a
racist, hompohobic, anti-Semitic, misogynistic, elitist, conspiratorial
and predatory cult like Skull and Bones?
