THE USUAL OCCUPANTS
By: Norman Liebmann
A schoolboy riddle asks, Why
dont fish have feet? The answer is Because they dont want
to step in anything. It also explains why extraterrestrials dont have feet -
because they dont want to land in Washington.
The Clinton campaign is like
a pachinko machine. Bill supplies the balls and Hillary supplies the clatter.
John McCain is not a maverick,
hes a mutineer.
Toni Morrison who labeled Bill
Clinton The first Black President is endorsing Barack Obama, which raises the
question: How black is black?
America can thank Al Gore for those constipated light bulbs that have

It is fitting that John McCain should
be the Senator from Arizona which is less of a state than it is a retirement village.
The trouble with giving an illegal
Mexican a drivers license is that you cant tell whether the image in the upper
left hand corner is his picture or his thumbprint.

shes going to be a bitch or a victim. Its apparent shes not up to

will be nothing like George W. Bush, but the Democrats are already planning to treat him
as though he is.
Der Fuhrer turned down the idea of
building an Adolph Hitler Library for fear it would be built in Arkansas.
would John McCain advocate an open borders policy after some illegal alien raped his 94
year old mother?
Anything that is politically
incorrect is worth a try.
Bill Clinton says Barack Obama is
like Jesse Jackson or did he mean like Stepinfetchit? Has Obama finally gotten the
idea that hes up against a two person lynch mob?
Hillarys campaign has picked up
momentum, which is easy to do when its already going downhill.
Governor Mike Huckabee should refuse
criminals early release from prison, but in a humanitarian gesture, give everybody early
release from Arkansas.
In lieu of a more reasonable
explanation, lets say the media regards the Clintons as an unsolvable crime wave and let it go at that.
Politics is something politicians do all
the time in order to be able to continue doing it all the time.
The Clinton Library should have a
display case housing the Clintons first pair of His and Hers brass knuckles.
Speaking of humanitarian gestures,
Hillary plans to provide the homeless with softer curbs on which to lay their heads.
Clinton being made welcome in Harlem makes as much sense as celebrating Mussolinis Birthday
An honest Democrat politician is as
rare as a Big Mac in Darfur.
The Clinton political hit
squad should be nicknamed Rambo and Bimbo.
Feminism is nothing if not
Al Sharpton suffers from delusions of
being taken seriously.
The new even more spacious Hummer
front seat will be available in four sizes Wide, Extra
Wide, Wide as All Get Out, and Hillary Clinton.
If you see Bill Clinton near a school
Had their two nations been
contiguous, the impoverished people of Bangladesh would already have built a forty foot electrified fence
surrounded by a moat between their country and Mexico.
John McCain cant be expected to
ever forget that he was in the Hanoi Hilton, but he sure as hell wont let the voters
forget it. Captivity is not a qualification for public office.
Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee
thinks he can assume a moral position without ever mentioning the Clintons - or for that
matter without mentioning Arkansas.
If they establish a George W. Bush
Chair In Government at Yale it will probably have training wheels on it.
The United States Senate is a
manifestation of what governance would look like if Nero had been a committee.
Fred Thompson doesnt have the
fire in his belly. Bill Clinton does but it has always been situated somewhat lower.
The race is shaping up as Hillary
Rodham Kremlin versus John Sidney McKremlin. (Honest to gosh - Sidney!)
If elected, McCain will give
Americans what it feels like to be locked in a dungeon for four years under a nasty old
Commandant with a terrible temper.
Before he leaves office, Bush may
learn to distinguish that not-so-fine-line between an obsession with compassion and
compassion that has become his obsession. Like somebody cares.
If Mike Huckabee becomes President it
will be because of a bigger than expected turn out by the cows in Arkansas.
McCain accused Romney of wanting to
get out of Iraq. Nobody accused McCain of wanting to get out of the Hanoi
Hilton. (Because his father was an American Admiral, the Vietnamese had offered him the
Arab women dont need to wear
burkhas. Most of them need to wear welders masks. The Saudis Arabs are beginning to
treat their women like human beings. Up to now there has been some doubt. Lets just
assume Islam is a disease and deal with it accordingly.
Peggy Noonan says Bush destroyed the
Republican Party. Is this a flash?
Dennis Kucinich has dropped out of
the Presidential race in the interest of aggravated disinterest.

One of the major disappointments of

Hillary and McCain share a common
extremism. How come theyre not on the same ticket?
Tennessee Williams said, There
is a time to depart, even when there is no place to go. For the Clintons this is such a
time. They should quit talking about the future and go there.
