What, Me President?

Hilary Clinton launched a fresh attack on President Bush over the weekend during a speech in Colorado.


"I sometimes feel that Alfred E. Neuman is in charge in Washington," Clinton said during the inaugural Aspen Ideas Festival, organized by the Aspen Institute, a non-partisan think tank. The former first lady drew a laugh from the crowd when she described Bush's attitude toward tough issues with Neuman's catch phrase: "What, me worry?"
Turns out Senator Clinton's comparison, however, isn't so new. In my cubicle hangs a classic portrait of Bush superimposed on Neuman's face, courtesy of The Nation. In light of Ms. Clinton's comments, I just had to share. You can hang up your own copy. Enjoy!
