Is a "Counter-Library" where the firemen from Fahrenheit 451 hang out?

Don't these people have something better to do with their time and money ?

Presidential Libraries:

Richard Nixon
Gerald Ford
Jimmy Carter
Ronald Reagan
George Bush

no point really, just info. (I had a point when I started, but it's just not worth it)

Oh, is THAT where those pesky WMD's are being held?

Cool.

Thus, the Clinton Presidential Center and Library – funded by you, the American taxpayer, and by multi-million dollar donations by rich foreigners including Red Chinese

What a bunch of butt-munches

And yet the right-wing goes on and on about "Bush Haters".

I wonder if in about 50 years or so Godwin's Law will be invoked for Clinton references.

I would put this in the category of magnificent obsessions, most similar to the one highlighted here.

Good God Almighty!

I second callmejay, that IS bizarre and petty.

If these average American citizens are so worried about how Clinton embarrassed our country during his presidency, why in the world are they building a shrine to his most embarrassing moments, for all the world to visit? Or worse, to buy postcards of at the giftshop?

"Remember how angry we were over the Lewinsky debacle? Well, here, hon, I got you your very own set of commemorative Presidential Knee Pads!"

I wonder what their displays/presentations will be like? Will they go over the top and have a mockup room of the Oval Office complete with a box of cigars and mannequins of Bill and Monica? Tacky.

If they make wax dolls of Bill, Hillary, Monica, etc. and then fifty years later sell 'em all on ebay I will buy them.

Perhaps Clinton was right when he spoke of a vast right wing conspiracy. For christ's sakes all we need is a continuation of this BS. Maybe Clinton can be the topic for the next election eh? sheesh

It's kind of early for 90s nostagia, isn't it?

The fact that "Foster" is one of their top level "fact" categories is very telling. The fact that they have so few articles under that category is also telling.

Yeah! Impeach Clinton! What? Oh.... he's not president anymore? Oh, it's 2004, Republicans have complete control of government now and I should move on? No! I will not be silenced!

The GOP controls the Whitehouse, the Congress and the Senate yet they STILL blame Clinton for everything.

They're just getting in pre-emptive retaliation for the inevitable string of Bush II Library jokes.

Like you haven't already thought of a dozen...
