I figured out the rationale behind the annoying friendship between the Bushes and Clinton. The family is just following the wise old advice: Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.

This Clinton friendship with Bush Sr. does make me wonder if Bob Dole is jealous. After all, he used to be Clinton’s main Republican bitch—I mean, squeeze.

Alas, it used to be that people became more conservative as they got older. But then Viagra came along and switched the whole thing around. Dole started taking it and became a Clinton lackey. And now that Bush Sr. is going fishing with Clinton every weekend, I suspect he’s on it too.
