We talk so much about “Sic” Willie around here that we often forget the real miggity miggity mack daddy, the man whose moniker, “Slick Willie,” spawned our founding editor’s own nickname.
Slick Willie, y’all! You remember, America’s First “Black President?”
Anyway, William Jefferson Clinton (who also happens to be America’s last “free market” president) was in the news recently for his diplomatic mission to North Korea, which resulted in the release of two imprisoned journalists.
And while we’re pretty sure that mission had something to do with Clinton wanting to meet Kim Jong Il’s “Pleasure Team,” he got the job done and in the process thoroughly one-upped both his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and U.S. Secretary General … errr President Barack Obama.
What’s Clinton’s next mission?
According to cartoonist Steve Kelly of the Times-Picayune, it looks like it might involve “hiking the Appalachian Trail.”
The good news?
When he’s done, you can bet your bottom dollar you won’t hear Clinton blathering on about finding his “soul mate.”
