Clinton Loses It?

It is late at night but I don't THINK this is a hoax.

"President Bill Clinton has been named PETA’s 2010 Person of the Year, the animal rights organization announced Monday.

"Though he was famously a fan of Big Macs while in office, Clinton turned to a vegan diet this year for health reasons in advance of his daughter Chelsea’s wedding in July and has continued to forgo meat and dairy ever since, PETA’s Campaigns Assistant Media Manager, Amanda Schinke, told POLITICO via e-mail.

"The former POTUS has publicly expounded the virtues of veganism and has said he’s lost 24 pounds on his plant-based diet.

" "Bill Clinton won not only because he's the most prominent person to go vegan this year but also because he used his platform to articulate the reasons why a plant-based diet is the most healthy diet," said PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews. "And of course, it doesn't hurt that he has Chelsea's lead to follow. She went vegan at 10, though her motivation was simply not wanting to support cruelty to animals." "

In today's philosophical climate he is a "moderate".

I can only hope that Monica has also gone vegan.

Remembering Clinton's comment on admitting to smoking marijuana but NOT INHALING, I should think that Monica would be allright as a vegan, as long as she didn't swallow.......

And Obama makes a point of giving props to Michael Vick.

It's like a sad White House remake of "Dumb and Dumber".
