Because, you know, we just haven’t beaten this dead horse long enough.
Via Maureen Dowd’s column, “Can We Get Hillary Without the Foolery?“:
It’s such a silly question. Of course Hillary is running. I’ve never met a man who was told he could be president who didn’t want to be president. So naturally, a woman who’s told she can be the first commandress in chief wants to be.
“Running for president is like sex,” James Carville told me. “No one ever did it once and forgot about it.”
But enough about Hillary. We have president/sex snarkitude to indulge in:
1. If running for president is like sex, then it’s clear that a whole lot of candidates are in dire need of Viagra.
2. Memorable, sure. But pleasurable? Team Romney, your thoughts?
3. Wait. We all know Carville knows a thing or two about presidential campaigns. He’s never had forgettable sex? (Bygones)
4. If running for president was like sex for George W. Bush (pass the brain bleach), that explains why he screwed the country.
5. Is there a morning after pill?
6. Or mirth control?
7. Why are we the ones who need protection?
8. Running for president is like sex, huh? To Republicans, more like a one blight stand.
9. Yet so many anti-choice Republicans have aborted campaigns.
10. If a candidate feels pressured into running, is it “legitimate” sex?
11. And if a candidate pulls out early… ?
I could go on forever. I’m done now. Your turn.
