Satire by John W. Lillpop
He may be one Big Mac and a large order of fries from the next life, but do not think for a moment that Slick Willie has lost any zeal or talent when it comes to outright lying.
The latest Clinton whopper concerns Slick’s attempt to get African-American candidate Kendrick Meek to abandon his bid to become U.S. Senator from Florida.
As reported at reference 1, in part:
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — Former President Bill Clinton on Friday denied reports — confirmed by his spokesman a day earlier — that he asked Democrat Kendrick Meek to drop out of the three-way Florida Senate race to clear the way for independent Gov. Charlie Crist.
Several prominent black Democrats said they believe the fuss is backfiring on Crist and energizing black voters to go to the polls to support Meek, who is black.
Clinton said in a statement Friday that he had talked to Meek about the race and its challenges.
"I didn’t ask Kendrick to leave the race, nor did Kendrick say that he would," Clinton said. "I told him that how he proceeds was his decision to make and that I would support him regardless."
A day earlier, Clinton spokesman Matt McKenna had confirmed a Politico report that Clinton tried to talk Meek into quitting.”
All of which sounds very much like the Clinton figger-wagging denial and perjuer’s quote, “I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky” issued before Slick became aware of the name Linda Tripp.
The Monica equivalent in 2010 would be, “I Did Not Have Intercourse (Conversation) with That Man, Mr. Meek” About Quitting the Senate Race!
