Publicity withdrawal: Former President Bill Clinton, in an effort to keep himself relevant and in the news has taken to telling whoppers to get the media to notice him. First, Clinton has been telling anyone who will listen that he warned his successor, George W. Bush about Osama bin Laden and Bush ignored his wise counsel.
Then, earlier this week Clinton apparently told the British press that he knew about Tony Blair's heart ailment, because Blair had told him about it several years ago. Unfortunately for the ever-increasingly irrelevant former prez, Blair didn't know he had a heart ailment several years ago -- and therefore obviously couldn't have discussed it with Clinton.
In the coming weeks, expect Clinton to:
- To have told Bush about the 9/11 attacks months before they occurred.
- To have claimed to warned NASA about the problems with the shuttle fleet that resulted in the loss of the Columbia.
- To have known that Lee Harvey Oswald was going to assassinate JFK weeks before it occurred.
- To have known Saddam Hussein had no WMDs when he bombed Iraq in 1998.
Clinton shouldn't go away angry -- he should just go away.
