Skip to comments.Clinton MOMA Book Party Freeped Tonight (Doctor Raoul Just Featured on Scarborough Country)
Posted on 06/21/2004 7:21:27 PM PDT by kristinn
New York's summer social season started not at the Hamptons, but tonight at the Museum of Modern Art with the book party for former President Bill Clinton's memoirs, My Life. Tout le monde came and went to bask in Clinton's afterglow and to pay homage to the only Democrat in the last quarter century to occupy the White House.
While they may say they came to celebrate his presidency, deep inside they know they really came to see the man who brought Monica Lewinsky to her knees in the Oval Office.
Outside the museum, two FReepers (Doctor Raoul and firebrand) stood across the street greeting the celebrants with this reminder: a large sign that said, "IF OSAMA WAS A PIECE OF ASS, CLINTON WOULD HAVE NAILED HIM."
Sixty Minutes fossil Andy Rooney was the first to encounter the Osama sign bearers. He walked over, read the sign and silently walked away.
Clinton apologist Joe Conason said, "He's a horse's ass" about Raoul to a group taking pictures.
The two FReepers got a fair amount of media interest. Most of the local TV news channels filmed and interviewed them. Look for coverage on the 10 or 11 o'clock news, or in the morning.
Raoul and firebrand had a good time bantering with passersby and some of the guests who were leaving the party.
Scarborough Country just showed a still picture of Doctor Raoul holding the sign.
I saw the sign. It was a classic.
I've said it before, I'll say it again. The Doctor is my hero!
Raoul, you are in your glory now.
Heads-up...CNN about to cover story.
Raoul, you are in your glory now.
What a hoot! MSNBC pixilated the word "ass," but the message got through loud and clear.
I saw it! That was great!!!!! Dr. Raoul RULES!!!!
F and D:
You know how I felt about these particular protests but I must say I appreciate your good will Job well done on all fronts.
Kristinn:I still think BJ did himself in last night with his interview and does not need much help from us to promote him.
All in all well done by all.
We're going to have to wait for the rerun for someone to post a screen capture, unless someone out there TIVOed it.
tom where are you for screen captures..you are the best on FR.
Thanks for the heads-up. CNN only showed the beautiful people entering the party.
Any pictures for us?
Please ping if posted.
"Sixty Minutes fossil Andy Rooney was the first to encounter the Osama sign bearers. He walked over, read the sign and silently walked away."
Did you ever notice...
maybe tonite Andy finally did notice :o)
I didn't see the interview on 60 minutes.......can you give me a synopsis on why Clinton "did himself in". Thank you, inquiring minds want to know.
Something tells me that Andy has dreams of the 72 virgins...LOL
Bill Clinton must hate you guys.
BTW, firebrand wanted me to let the Tri-State Chapter members know that she learned about this freep a few hours ago when Raoul asked her to join him so that's why word didn't get passed on.
as laura says BJ is on operation rescue image mode....I cant really sum it up better then that....
Rats, missed it.
Anyone know when Scarborough repeats? I have to go to work, am running late right now....
PLEASE tell us you did the Cops Cheer!
I don't know, I always miss Scarborough because I can't stand MSNBC. 'Pod might know.
They were talking about doing it. I'll ask next time they check in.
Dr. Raoul = Protest Commando

I love Doctor Raoul!
What a great sign!
Raoul nailed Clinton!
Talk about a badge of honor!
Not many people can lay claim to being called a horse's ass by the one and only browneye himself, Joe Conason.
Thanks for digging up the pic. It was taken back in February, 2003. Good signs never go out of style...
