President Bill Clinton skewers Al Gore.
President Bill Clinton spoke at the annual Gridiron Dinner.
Bill Clinton noted he was speaking on the night before the start of spring, “otherwise known to Al Gore as proof of global warming.”
He said,“I have been waiting to stand in for President Obama for a long time,” he said, “ and since they turned me down for Dancing with the Stars, I had nothing better to do.”
He said of Sen. Orrin Hatch,“Orin, he’s the wittiest of all the Republicans. That‘s sort of like saying he’s the tallest of the Seven Dwarfs.”
He went on, “I flew here from Cleveland, and I flew out of the Dennis Kucinich Airport”—a suggestion that Ohio Democratic Rep. Kucinich must have gotten something flattering in return for his decision two days ago to vote for the Obama bill.
