News, but not the serious kind
Up high, down low, too slow…
Blog Guy, have you ever thought of running for national office? I mean, you live in DC anyway, so it’s not like you’d have to move very far.
Thanks for asking, but I just couldn’t handle that much compromise.
Nah, I mean all the high-fives. I can stand that other stuff, but I will not high five, even if it means my political career.
Look at this top photo, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton high-fiving Turkey’s foreign minister. What is she thinking?
As you can see, both Democrats and Republicans do it here, all the time.
I see what you mean. Do we know what Clinton and that Turkish guy are high-fiving about?
I believe she just sang him that old 1953 novelty song, “Istanbul (not Constantinople).” I guess he’d never heard it.
That’s hard to believe. He seems to be taking special joy in the high five. Could it mean something else in his culture?
You guessed it. He thinks Hillary just gave him Arkansas.
