Dubya And Clinton To Face Off! (Kinda)

Oooh, a fake debate between George W. Bush and Bill Clinton is happening in Canada soon (since Bush is reasonably certain he won’t be arrested on sight in that country, at least)!

Former U.S. presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush will appear together in Toronto next month on a public stage for the first time since Mr. Bush ended his presidency, in a remarkable twist on the cultural cold war that Barack Obama and others are trying to lay to rest. The two will be appearing at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on May 29 for a moderated [conversation]…

Audiences hoping to witness the two men tearing at each other verbally will be disappointed. Presidents do not attack presidents, at least not directly, if only because only presidents know what other presidents go through.

Oh, Canadians are just so polite. Yes, it’s true that presidents don’t usually attack other presidents. Who knows? Maybe they’re right about this. Still, I’d like to think that the memory of impeachment hearings over a blow job are memorable for a president, as is the image of his successor getting away with domestic spying, torture, and outing a C.I.A. agent. And, if there’s one thing we learned from his wife’s campaign, ol’ Billy Boy is pretty easily riled.

If nothing else, the passive-aggressive flaunting of far superior intellect that Clinton is absolutely guaranteed to demonstrate is worth the price of admission.
