6. And that's why the GOP hated Clinton so much.
Clinton succeeded at almost everything while the GOP has produced nothing but a string of crooks, nitwits and failures.

The people of America really know how to pick em!!!!

Isn't it amazing that we have had Reagan and bush as President?

That's because all the truly smart people DON"T WANT THE JOB!!!

7. Nancy's BJ skills...
...I found that some wingnuts are offended by this in the list.

Excuuuse Moi?

Now - NO ONE has ever been offended by blowjobs when talking about Clinton, Hillary, Monica, et al but ohhhhhhh noooooo when you mention blowjob in the same sentence with a Republican (or Repub first lady)- you're being 'disrespectful'. The friggin HYPOCRISY is astounding, innit?

Who wants to bet that when Clinton is gone, BLOWJOBS will be part of the talk about his 'legacy'? Eh???

Oh. But I guess that's different!
