Bill Clinton [and Magic Johnson] coming to Davenport on Tuesday
Quad-City Times ^ | 17 Dec 07 | Ed Tibbetts

Posted on 12/17/2007 12:05:33 PM PST by seanmerc

Former President Bill Clinton and retired basketball star Earvin "Magic" Johnson will be in Davenport on Tuesday to campaign for Hillary Clinton.

The ex-president has been a regular on the campaign trail, but this will be the first time that Johnson, who played for years for the Los Angeles Lakers, will have hit the hustings in Iowa for U.S. Sen. Clinton.

The two men will be at Davenport Central High School for a 10:30 a.m. event, according to the Clinton campaign. Clinton and Johnson are making stops in Davenport and Waterloo. Clinton will then continue on to Hampton and Fort Dodge.

This will be the second time the former president has stopped at Central. He made an appearance there in 2000 while pushing for increased federal spending for school repairs.

Magic Johnson is a very gifted athlete, but he cannot talk his way out of a wet paper bag.

Subjecting someone to his public speaking is probably a form of torture as defined by the Democratic Congressional caucus.

It appears that Johnson is Hillary’s anti-Oprah.

A subtle reinforcement of Andrew Young’s comments vis-a-vis the “swordsmanship” of Bill vs Obama. And Bill probably has Magic beat in that category as well.

It was taken down after the Kathleen Wiley interview for 60 minutes.

No one noticed it’s been missing.

No, no. Everyone misread the press release. What it actually said was "Former President Bill Clinton to come to Davenport, IA, Tuesday with his Magic Johnson". (Hmmm, Clinton to come IN Davenport with his Magic Johnson...)

Until Jan. 20, 2008. He made an appearance there in 2000 while pushing for increased federal spending for school repairs.

Nice way of saying Bill wanted to raise taxes 1 more time.

Too bad Bill doesn’t just want to tell the truth in public like he does in private...here is something from a person who lives in the same city I do:

I went to a party this weekend and one of the other guests was a classmate of BillyJeff and graduated in the same Georgetown Law School class. Very interesting listening to him talk about the Willard and Beast that he knows. He went to that 1998 30 year class reunion at the White House. BillyJeff was the same old good ole boy, life of the party, more hands than an Octopus when around the women its all about ME creep. His words about Hillary were not so kind. He said Hillary was still a “total [very offensive 4 letter word referring to a female]” who was ice cold, only cared about using people to gain power. He also mentioned (unprompted) Hillary’s preference for the Broadloom over the Bent One. Listening to this guy was like reading a great LCom thread about Hitlery and confirms most of what people here have said about Willard and the Beast. All in all, a darned good party.

Was it not Magic Johnson that bragged about having sex with thousands of women and then admitting he had AIDS? How many women did he infect? I’m sure the local High School will be happy to know Magic is supporting a president that thinks Oral Sex is not Sex. I’m sure that the principle of the school will welcome these sex deviates.

Both men cheated on their wifes, I’m I right? Magic got HIV.

Is this a parody story?

They make a great couple. ;)

Oh, that’s right. I forgot that Magic contracted HIV HETEROsexually.

By the way, if nothing else, Obama will always have a special place for putting the queen in her place last week with the “I’m looking forward to you advising me as well” comment.
It almost made me want to send a check.

And Bill got HRC. Not sure who came out ahead.

i don’t think that he was the one who claimed the thousands of conquests, but yes he’s HIV+
and i don’t know how the IA school will react but in the eyes of the local high school he graduated from, he can do no wrong. they have a shrine to him on the gym wall.
that school is going downhill fast too. jesse jackson was there for a “mandatory” assembly not too long ago.

The guy was pulling your leg. BillyJeff went to Yale Law School. His undergrad was at Georgetown.

Former President Bill Clinton and retired basketball star Earvin "Magic" Johnson will be in Davenport on Tuesday to campaign for Hillary Clinton.

Two walking petri dishes campaign for a human virus.
