Humor, Hillary-style

Hillary was on the campaign trail this weekend.
This from Newsday:
The Democrat from New York also accused Bush of depriving U.S. soldiers of equipment needed to fight the war in Iraq and cutting funding for scientific research during the inaugural Aspen Ideas Festival, organized by the Aspen Institute nonpartisan think tank.
"I sometimes feel that Alfred E. Newman is in charge in Washington," Clinton said referring to the freckle-faced Mad Magazine character. She drew a laugh from crowd when she described Bush's attitude toward tough issues with Newman's catchphrase: "What, me worry?"

Points to consider:
* The Aspen Institute is no longer a nonpartisan think tank.
* Hillary Clinton's reading material consists of dated humor magazines.
* I'd rather have someone in the White House acting, not sitting around worrying. (We saw how efficiently terror was fought in the 1990s while Hillary was worrying about it... not!)
