Screwing up the Catering

So let us talk now of cabbages and kings and cigars. For one thing, Clinton will never be able to be seen in public smoking one. Ever. Again. As a matter of fact, they will probably be banned from all Democratic Photo-ops from now on. Unless some smart ass diplomat shows up with specially designed cigar tongs. "Thanks a lot, but I'll just save this for later." I imagine at State Dinners even breadsticks, celery stalks and kosher dill pickles will come under excruciatingly close scrutiny. So along with everything else, Bill has managed to screw up the White House catering department as well. Asparagus spears? I don't think so. "Does this look like Hollandaise Sauce to you?" The person you have to feel sorry for is Monica, because Starr, AKA Javert, has ruined the kid's book deal. What amazes me is the report is 455 pages long and only mentions Whitewater twice and one of the references is to the stain on the dress. And speaking of which, what's the deal with Monica saving it? Did she plan on parading it in front of her friends, waiting for them to remark upon it? "What, this old thing?" Maybe she was preparing to use it as collateral for a loan. Will Durst has heard the joke, that the evidence won't hold up in court because everybody in Arkansas has the same DNA. He hopes you have too.
