Give Hillary a minute and she’s launch into just how wonderful she will be for our kids. Sez her Web site:
America is ready for a president who fights for our children. Hillary has spent her lifetime as an effective advocate for parents and children.
From her first job out of law school at the Children’s Defense Fund to her time as First Lady of Arkansas and of the United States to her service in the Senate, helping children has been at the center of Hillary’s public life.
Why then, if she’s so concerned about the tykes, has she not slapped down her hubby, for all the damage he’s done to them?
Incredible Wife, upon hearing excerpts from a Hillary
screech speech on Hugh Hewitt‘s show last week became incensed; paraphrasing:
How can we give her control of America if she can’t even control her husband?
Let’s put it another way: If the wife of a male candidate were caught sleeping around, would we find him particularly presidential?
Incredible Wife’s anger goes back … way back:
“Is oral sex performed on you within that definition as you understood it?” Clinton was asked during his August 17 testimony, viewed by the public for the first time Monday.
“As I understood it, it was not, no,” the president answered. (source)
That testimony that oral sex does not constitute sex, from President Clinton’s testimony before the grand jury, was almost nine years ago, but I still remember vividly Incredible Wife’s immediate reaction:
Kids are going to hear that, and when they do, they’re going to start believing that oral sex isn’t sex because the president said so.
I was skeptical. First, because I didn’t believe much of anything Clinton said. But more importantly, in my teen years, oral sex was hyper-sex. In our wildest dreams, my friends and I thought we might get some sex … but oral sex? That was the stuff of legend, and the thought that it wasn’t sex was ridiculous.
Then, five years after Clinton’s testimony, came this:
A high school newspaper article that claims 40 percent of the students have had oral sex has stirred controversy in Montrose, Colo. The Montrose High School Chieftain published the story in its April 30 edition.
The article, written by MHS student Katherine Smith, questions whether experts and students consider oral sex as “having sex.” The school paper published the column, story and information box on the subject.
The story begins by citing a “survey” of Montrose high school students which determined that 60 percent of the students do not consider oral sex to be “sex.”
My wife gave me that “told you so” look and I re-read the story, awe-struck in a disgusted sort of way.
At that point, Bill Clinton should have gone on MTV and told the kids he was wrong, he was lying, of course oral sex is real sex. But of course he didn’t, and for all we hear, oral sex is still entrenched as a suitable short-of-sex sexual act among kids.
Fast forward to last week, when Incredible Wife was enjoying a deep gum cleaning at our local DDS. The dental hygienist told her,
You wouldn’t believe the amount of disease we’re seeing now … STDs from oral sex, and even worse. Cancers! And we’re seeing this with the younger patients.
Incredible Wife responded,
Es aw eaus uh ill in-un!
Yes, it’s all because of Bill Clinton. But can we trust our local hygienist on a subject as tricky as oral sex?
Syphillis: “Transmission of the organism occurs during vaginal, anal, or oral sex.” (CDC)
Chlamydia: “Chlamydia can be transmitted during vaginal, anal, or oral sex.” (CDC)
HIV/AIDS: “Yes, it is possible for either partner to become infected with HIV through performing or receiving oral sex. ” (CDC)
If it’s not sex, Bill, how come it spreads sexually transmitted disease? If you love kids so much, Hil, why don’t you call your husband on his lie and actually protect the children?
The answer, of course, is because they’re Clintons, and nothing is more important to the Clintons than … the Clintons.
Before we finish this, recall that the dental hygienist mentioned cancer, too. And she was right about that, as well:
MONDAY, Aug. 27, 2007 (HealthDay News) — Human papillomavirus (HPV), which is believed to be responsible for most cervical cancers, may also be at the root of many cancers of the mouth and throat, new research suggests.
Although the rate of most head and neck cancers has been declining over the past 30 years because more people have stopped smoking, the rate of certain cancers in the throat and mouth hasn’t dropped, according to research published in the Aug. 27 online issue of Cancer.
“Smoking prevalence has dropped dramatically, and, likewise, most head and neck cancers have declined in incidence. Cancers at the base of the tongue and tonsil are increasing or have remained stagnant. We’re not seeing the reduction in incidence that we would have expected,” said study author Dr. Erich Sturgis, an associate professor of head and neck surgery and epidemiology at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, in Houston.
The study authors suspect the reason may be orally transmitted HPV infections.
“Just as cervical cancer is the outcome of a sexually transmitted disease, as are most anal and penile cancers, people need to be aware that they can get throat or tongue cancer as the consequence of a sexually transmitted disease,” said Sturgis. “Oral sex can’t be considered safe sex.”
“Oral sex cannot be considered safe sex.” How does that ring with Hil and Bill, who are letting it stand that oral sex isn’t even sex?
From now on, whenever Hil claims her great love of children, think of children with syphilis, chlamydia, HIV/AIDS or tongue or mouth cancer and ask her in your mind, “Do you really stand for children, or do you just stand by that cancer on America named Bill Clinton?”
