Bill Clinton Champions Monogamy
From the Department of You Can’t Make This Stuff Up: Bill Clinton is now the poster boy for monogamy.
Clinton’s advice to beat Aids: stay faithful
Bill Clinton made a plea yesterday for a new emphasis on monogamy as a key element in the battle against Aids. The former US president, not noted for his ability to keep his own marriage vows, said it was very important to change people’s attitudes to sex.
In an interview with the BBC recorded in Africa, Mr Clinton said that increasing support for monogamy was not just a problem for the continent worst hit by Aids but for the world. “To pretend we can ever get hold of this without dealing with that — the idea of unprotected sexual relations with unlimited numbers of partners — I think would be naÃ¯ve,” he said.
Of course, Clinton’s pronouncement could help cure one sickness while causing a whole other set of symptoms. Edward Christie has the first known case:
I’m feeling disoriented, dizzy; everything is going blurry, and the room is spinning.
Perhaps this is a classic case of the old Vulcan proverb, Only Nixon can go to China?
