[Fwd: Funny/Sad]

For your amusement?

Here's something I think is both funny and sadly representative of 
our President.  We wish you all the best.  Marna and I are OK here.

?I believe families will be better off as a result of this.?
             William Jefferson Clinton, September 15, 1998

Somewhere in America, next week:

DAD:  Son, come in here.  We need to talk.
SON:  What?s up, dad?
DAD:  There?s a scratch down the side of the car.  Did you do it?
SON:  I don?t believe, if I understand the definition of ?scratch the 
that I can say, truthfully, that I scratched the car.
DAD:   Well,  it  wasn?t there yesterday, and you drove the car last 
and no one else has driven it since.  How can you explain the scratch?

SON:   Well,  as I?ve said before, I have no recollection of 
scratching the
car.   While  it  is true that I did take out the car last night, I 
did not
scratch it.
DAD:  But your sister, Monica, has told me she saw you back the car 
the  mailbox  at  the end of the driveway, heard a loud scraping 
sound, saw
you  get  out  to  examine the car, and then drive away.  So again I?
ll ask
you, yes or no, did you scratch the car?
SON:   Oh,  you  mean  you think you have evidence to prove I 
scratched it.
Well,  you  see, I understood you to mean did ?I? scratch the car.  I 
by my earlier statement, that I did not scratch the car.
DAD:   Are  you  trying  to  tell me that you didn?t drive the car 
into the
SON:  Well, you see, sir, I was trying to drive the car into the 
street.  I
mishandled  the steering of the car, and it resulted in direct 
contact with
the mailbox, though that clearly was not my intent.
DAD:  So, you are then saying that you did hit the mailbox?
SON:  No, sir, that?s not my statement.  I?ll refer you back to my 
statement that I did not scratch the car.
DAD:   But  the car did hit the mailbox, and the car did get 
scratched as a
result of this contact?
SON:  Well, yes, I suppose you could look at it that way.
DAD:  So you lied to me when you said you did not scratch the car?
SON:   No.   No, that?s not correct.  Your question was, ?Did I 
scratch the
car??   From  a  legal  definition,  as  I  understand  the meaning 
of that
sentence,  I  did not scratch the car? the mailbox did?I was merely 
when  the scratching occurred.  So my answer of ?no? when you asked, ?
Did I
scratch  the  car??  was  legally  correct,  although  I  did not 
DAD:  Where in the world did you learn to be such a smart aleck?
SON:  From the President of the United States.
