China 'Honors' Ex-President Clinton

The Guangzhou Rubber Group has decided to market condoms under the brand name 'Clinton' and 'Lewinsky', the story is here.

In a surreptitiously mendacious statement the company through it's spokeman stated :

"The company had chosen to use the Clinton name because consumers viewed the former president as a responsible person, who would want to stress safe sex as an effective way to prevent the spread of the HIV virus."

While much of America will be content to simply shrug and laugh this off, there is something here that really requires introspection and reflection on the part of the American people. This is not only President Clinton's legacy, the 42nd President of the United States, it is America's legacy. Something that affects and continues to affect us all in a negative manner.

Bill Clinton is not someone seen as a responsible man by the Asian people. He is an icon that represents the worst of America, a perverted, self-indulgent, shameless caricature of a man completely devoid of any dignity and self-respect.

That the Chinese would have the audacity to name a brand of condom after a US President should be indicative of just how much respect the Chinese have for the United States. That we as a nation would not take offense at this is indicative of how little respect we have for ourselves.
