The US Navy welcomed the latest member of it's fleet today. Pictured above the USS William Jefferson Clinton CVS1 set sail today from it's home port of Vancouver, BC.
The ship is the first of it's kind in the Navy and is a standing legacy to President Clinton and his foresight in military budget cuts. The ship is constructed nearly entirely from recycled aluminum and is completely solar powered with a top speed of 5 knots. It boasts an arsenal comprised of one F14 Tomcat or F18 Hornet aircraft, which although cannot be launched or captured on the 100 foot flight deck, forms a very menacing presence.
As a standing order there are no firearms allowed on board. The 20 person crew is completely diversified and includes members of all races, creeds, sex, and sexual orientation.
The ships purpose is not defined so much as a unit of national defense, in fact in times of conflict it's orders are to remain in hiding in Canada, but will be used extensively for social experimentation and whatever shitty jobs the commander in chief and his wife can think of.
It is largely rumored that the ship will also be the set for the upcoming season of MTV's "The Real World."
I think its time to go back to naming our most visible ships after battles. Like we use to do. Just think. It was the FDR CV 42 that started this.
I came across this sight when looking for something else. And LOL. Then thought. Whats so funny is this could really happen!
Just remember we all LOL about Senator Clinton of NY That will never happen. Whos LOL now?
You really want a scary thought?
The USSr Hillary Clinton CVS2
I always thought they were going to name the STD clinic at Bethesda after him.
"The USSr Hillary Clinton CVS2"
Not to worry, some enterprising FReeper will post a picture for you!
This is funny!
No he is just one of the patients.
Station it off the coast of Haiti.
Then order it to turn tail and come home.
YOU RULE! I was all ready to blow chow until I saw the picture!
I was expecting a Garbage Scow. IMO this vessel is way too nice and modern to insult with that name.
I figured the uss clinton would be somthing cigar shaped. :)
Any guesses on how to get promoted as a member of the crew or what the punishment is for standing too close to the Captain when rounds are incoming?
Pray for W and Our Troops
Maybe we should all chip in, and send the former CinC and his Senatorial wife on a very long, slow 2nd honeymoon cruise around the world.
CVS 1 Wm Jefferson Clinton. A ferry with a bent rudder.
She's a beauty! Geena Davis is going to send it on a secret mission to North Korea.
Any Second Honeymoon with Sen. Clinton would be long irrespective of the speed.
Hey! Watch it!
With a .50 on it! No Way! The most it would have on it would be a spitwad shooter.
Thanks for the laugh. The flight deck is priceless.
Seriously, when the time comes, we cannot let the US Navy or America be disgraced by a nuclear aircraft carrier with the Sinkmaster's name on it. Period.
Just like Jimmah Carter, he will have to be "remembered" in a way without sullying a noble symbol of America like a carrier.
We need to cry loud and hard about it when the time comes, because no ship should honor a man who "loathed the military" and who is a rapist and a traitor.
And a bad sax player to boot.
Where's the cigar holder?AWB
The ship "is a standing legacy to President Clinton and his foresight in military budget cuts." You're killing me! What a way to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
This tub can quickly be deployed the day before elections so the sailors will miss out on voting.
I will oppose to my dying day any US NAVY ship being named after Slikus Willus....
He robbed me of my port of call in Austrilia in '96!
(Not to mention he was one lousy president.)
No, no, no, the USNS Hillary Clinton (T-AH 22) will be a medical ship. Unfortunately, it will be socialized "Hillarycare" where no one gets treated and no one gets cured. The only thing that happens is that the wounded are given a number and made to wait in line while nurses and doctors all do paperwork.
USS Clinton STD-69
Haha, I nearly spit out my pop.
GOOD! Ecological too ... will absorb all them nasty Global Warming sunrays to power 'er up, and help preserve that glacial "HillRod" from melting! /s
Oh my gosh, this had me worried when I first started reading it as I had no recollection of a ship being named after him!! Very funny.
Maybe we can get Sean Penn aboard with his little red cup!
What would an appropriate surname for a skipper of a USS Clinton?
Auxiliary recoil engine? Cute. LoL
He was there, you know.
The USNS William Jefferson Blythe Clinton will be the first floating VD clinic, traveling with the fleet to various liberty ports.
In the fleet it will be known as the USS Crotchrot.
If not, I have a few statements and questions to pose:
1) Why would the United States Navy name a vessel after the POS who was a draft dodger?
2)What is the colour of the vessel? Navy Blue with white splotches on the port side or the starboard side?
3) What are the anti-aircraft cigar batteries?
4) What is the complement of female personnel on board?
5) Is the Commander's quarters round and have a private bathroom equipped with a sink in case of a "call to quarters situation alert?"
^) If Navy aircraft need to be launched, will Stainman be riding the catapult behind our fighters?
I could go on but I would be banned.
Anyone care to add to this concept as to why A United States NAVY vessel be named after the worst (p)resident of the United States?
It appears that he did a lot of that in office.
Not to mention the "head" has a whole different meaning in the Clinton lexicon.
Classic. Thank you.
I bet it's faster than the stern drive...but the wake is pretty hazardous!
You are begging for some ... responses that I canot not respond to. One is sp!t... the other is w@d.
Please read more than the headline?
You look silly when you post before reading the article.
I would imagine he would have serveral Chinese Navy ships named after him.
Not much room for the Hookers!
The Navy had ships named Clinton before. But I think all can rest assured the Navy will never name one for Bill Clinton.
On your behalf, I should have added the obligatory /sarcasm
*rolling eyes and shaking head*
