Yes HRC gave the speeches, but she didn't inhale


When asked about marijuana, Bill Clinton famously said he experimented with it, but he didn't inhale.

The point is that, of course he was around it, and engaged in an act that looked just like he was actually smoking marijuana. BUT - he didn't inhale.

By having the marijuana, lighting the marijuana, and drawing a puff, it looked just like smoking marijuana. But by not inhaling, he avoided any of the actual effects of marijuana which, for most people, is the point of smoking it in the first place.

I think what we should realize is that Hillary is correct when she denies the implication of graft. Yes, it looks like they gave her a large quantity of money in order to curry favor, since that is the usual recipe for curried favor. But we are failing to realize that, just like Bill and marijuana, she insulated herself against its effects.

8. I believe you are confusing satire and sarcasm

 


They are related methods of commentary, but they are not the same thing.

11. Okay

 

But that is what she has been saying.

Sure I got a lot of money, but it hasn't influenced me.

It's the same as Bill and marijuana. He didn't inhale.

12. Totally. Let me be clear, I asked if your OP was satire b/c there are ludicrous

explanations sometimes offered up for Clinton behaviors..of all kinds.

Most of the explanations amount to dressed up bullshit, but I can't be sure
sometimes if someone is fooling around or not..thus my question.

I support Bernie, and I want the money flow to end. Its a poison, doesn't
matter if they have a D or R after there name.

14. There's no reason to wrap yourself in knots

 


Just take things as they are. If you are fooled, it's not on you.

We all know that Bill Clinton didn't actually smoke marijuana. He experimented with it, but didn't inhale. It only looked like he was smoking marijuana.

I think the same sort of thing is true here.

7. It's the same way he didn't have sex with Lewinski

 

It was a partial blowjob and he finished it off himself.

So, it was "kinda like sex", but not really sex.

Are you going to tell me that just because I ejaculate with a woman in the room that we're having sex?

On edit: (my wife has insisted it is)

16. I know of at least one occasion where unless he stopped breathing, he DID inhale.

Back in 92 on the campaign here in Austin he said he went to a show at the Armadillo.
Unless he wasn't breathing inside he did inhale.
