Reporter Laura Ling names baby after Bill Clinton
news.yahoo.com ^ | June 3, 2010

Posted on 06/03/2010 12:38:50 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Bill Clinton's redemption is complete. Nearly a year after the former president negotiated the release of two Current TV reporters in North Korea, one of them, Laura Ling, has honored Clinton by naming her new baby after him.

According to People's Cynthia Wang, Ling gave birth to a girl, Li Jefferson Clayton, on Wednesday night in Burbank, Calif. (The father is Ling's husband, financial analyst Iain Clayton.) The baby's first name, Li, is a nod to Ling's sister Lisa, a former co-host of "The View," and Jefferson is Clinton's middle name.

Like all things Clinton, this begins with a "Li".

I misread the first lines of this article

I thought it said “Clinton’s Wang named in Birth of Girl Ling.”

Isn’t this one of the reporters that was held captive for a while, and Clinton helped negotiate her release? If so ... it makes sense.

“Jefferson” is such a great name that even Slick Willie can’t soil it.

It’s a nice name for her kid, and I bet everyone calls him Jeff. Which is also a great name and reminds me of heroic freeper Jeff Head.

I also think she’s a fine reporter, despite appearing on a leftist network.

Whoops, sorry, we spelled Willy/Willie different. :)

I loved Ann Coulter's recent comment on Slick...

Incidentally, why do so many Bill Clinton stories end with the words "nothing improper happened"?

I’d lake to hear the specific logistics of this bit of alleged brilliant statesmanship from the ever oily Clinton. Like Carter’s infamous Mid-East Peace Accords, I’ll bet it involved cash out of my pocket.

I was struck by that also, that they had to mention that her husband was the baby’s father.

Considering Bill Clinton’s reputation, I’m sure many would wonder why she would name her baby with Clinton in mind.

Hmmm, just don’t tell the girl that she is named after Bill Clinton, or parenting could become very difficult.

“Dear, is your room clean?”
“It depends on the meaning of the word ‘is.’”

“I mean, are your clothes picked up off the floor?”
“It meets the legal definition of the word clean.”

“I don’t want to get angry. Let me see if the room is clean.”
“I think we have spent far too much time on this issue and I need to get back to the work of being a ten year-old.”

rightwingintelligentsia: The baby is a girl.

OOOPS!! That's really funny. OK, I guess they will call her "Li", hopefully pronounced Lee. This is the in the Linda and Lisa tradition of the Chinese side of the family.

I will go out on a limb and tell a good ethnic joke (this was told to me by my 12 year old Chinese daughter, so don't get your shorts in a bunch).

Q: How do Chinese parents name their children?

A: They throw pots and pans down the stairs.
