Bill Clinton needs to be bound and gagged immediately. Who is he campaigning for anyway? Here are his remarks introducing John McCain and his suspended campaign at the Clinton Global Initiative meeting this morning:
“I am personally, profoundly honoered that Senator came here today,” he said, recognizing Governor Sarah Palin as well.
He lavished praise on McCain’s foresight on global warming.
“When most people in his party were thinking that global warming was overstated and maybe even a myth designed to help people like me who love solar and wind get into it, he decided to look into it,” Clinton said, recalling McCain’s and Hillary Clinton’s trips to the Arctic.
“The point I want to make is there aren’t any votes on this in Arizona,” Clinton said. “He just wanted to know. That’s what we want from everybody. John McCan wants to know and I am profoundly grateful to him for coming here today.”
And then, Big Dog goes on to say this on Good Morning America (!):
“We know he didn’t do it because he’s afraid because Sen. McCain wanted more debates,” Clinton said, adding that he was “encouraged” by the joint statement from McCain and Sen. Barack Obama.
“You can put it off a few days the problem is it’s hard to reschedule those things,” Clinton said, “I presume he did that in good faith since I know he wanted — I remember he asked for more debates to go all around the country and so I don’t think we ought to overly parse that.”
If the debate moves forward as planned for Friday night, Clinton says “they should be able to talk about this some of the debate because it is a security issue.”
Dude, don’t you have a cigar to shove in an orifice or something?
