RUSH: This is from the Independent in London, the Independent newspaper. ‘Bill Clinton made a plea yesterday…’ I’m not making this up, by the way. I’m actually reading the Independent. ‘Bill Clinton made a plea yesterday for a new emphasis on monogamy as a key element in the battle against AIDS. The former US president, not noted for his ability to keep his own marriage vows, said it was very important to change people’s attitudes to sex.’ I’m not joking. I am not joking! It is from a Canadian website. It’s from the Independent in London. No, it’s not the Independent Onion and it’s not the Independent ScrappleFace. It’s a genuine, real story. What are you so shocked about? All he means here is one chick at a time. That’s what monogamy is to Clinton.
RUSH: I realize, ladies and gentlemen, that many of you doubted me when I shared with you the story in the Independent newspaper from London that Bill Clinton said that a new emphasis on monogamy is needed as a key element in the fight against AIDS. You thought it was a satire piece. So here is an audio sound bite. This is on the BBC. President Clinton on a visit to Senegal, which, for those of you in Rio Linda, is in Africa.
CLINTON: To pretend that we can ever get a hold of this without dealing with that, the idea of unprotected sexual relations with unlimited numbers of partners, I think we’re being naive.
RUSH: You know, I have a hearing problem. Was that a bunch of chickens clucking in the background? What was the noise in the background? What was it? Restaurant noise? Might have been chickens. At any rate, you still think I’m making up the story now, Snerdley? Hm-hm. Hm-hm. Why are you mad? Hm-hm. Hm-hm. Now, stop making this a racial thing. Snerdley is all upset because he goes over and tells the African people to start shaping up when it comes to monogamy. Go to Chappaqua? Well, I don’t think they’ve got an AIDS problem in Chappaqua. See, you don’t have to be monogamous where you don’t have an AIDS problem. This is another thing that Clinton is talking about. Now, I had a good friend of mine disagree with my analysis of Clinton’s comment here. When everybody was going ape here over Clinton demanding everybody be monogamous, I said all he means is one chick at a time. Now, a friend of mine says, ‘Dear Rush, it doesn’t happen often but I respectfully disagree. I think Clinton means one wife at a time is more than enough. Beyond that, it’s as many babes as you can handle. The reason you don’t understand this, Rush, is because you have not walked a mile in Clinton’s shoes.’
