Devil with a Blue Dress

A recent study by the University of Kentucky found that less than 20% of young adults think oral sex is really and truly "sex." And the researchers made no bones about the fact that the turning point in this belief occurred when Bill Clinton waggled his finger at a national audience and declared "I did not have sexual relations with that woman."

Granted, being from Arkansas, the president might have believed that "sexual relations" referred only to sisters and cousins...but it seems more likely that he was simply lying through his teeth.

Comedy aside, there's an important lesson to be learned here about the long-lasting social impact which follows public wrongdoing, combined with a complicit media which goes into overdrive to convince the public that wrong is right, and morality (as well as legality) hinges only
on semantics.

We've already seen the impact on sexual attitudes (and plague-like levels of STDs). But what will be the eventual consequences of today's liberal/media saturation campaign preaching anti-capitalism, the end of American exceptionalism, a "dependence mentality," and the fomenting of class envy?

Frankly, we'll all be screwed...and that won't be sex, either.

"I did not pay that dry cleaning bill!"

BONUS: Bill Clinton has recently spoken out on the dangers of the Tea Party's rhetoric, associating such speech with the Oklahoma City bombing. He then goes on to say that this does not mean "we should reduce our passion," and emphasizes that "we should not gag each other."

Some jokes just write themselves...

Many young people get their news from late night comedy shows which also lean left. Heavily. Thank you Stilton for trying to get things right.

My favorite take on this is a (now) old joke -
Chelsea comes home from her first semester at college, and is having breakfast w/ her Mother.
"So" Hillary says "the secret service tells me you have a boyfriend - are you having sex with him?"
"Well" Chelsea replies, "not according to Daddy"..

I remember the old saying about the two biggest lies from men. One of the lies is your check is in the mail

Buzz- Actually, there are three biggest lies now, the third one being "I won't sign the healthcare reform if it adds one dime to the deficit".

That was #3 - "I'm from the Government, and I'm here to help you"
