On the way to the Iowa Caucus

On a thread over on Jeff's blog, Angelo comments that the mention of Cuban cigars still makes him think of Monica Lewinski. His comment made me remember the above piece of lighthearted memorabilia from that bygone era.

I'm sure as US presidential election time nears, references to that old news will go hand in hand with news of Giuliani's divorces and other trivia designed to draw attention away from more meaty (sorry, couldn't resist it) issues. This and other period pieces will probably be resurrected to do duty again with the candidate roles reversed.

Issue driven or not (and they’re not), election’s here are a cakewalk in comparison to their mainland counterparts when negative campaigning is considered.

"Let's call her Monica" is hilarious.
Did you hear the one where Monica dros her clothes off at the dry cleaners? The Asian lady running the place said "come again!" Monica replied "no, just ketchup this time."

The old Grandfather Sioux is taking his young warrior wanna be out hunting. He stops the horse and dismounts putting his ear to the ground he says, "Ugg, buffalo come". "How can you tell Grandfather?" Holding his ear the Grandfather replies "Ugg, sticky".
