There are no second acts in American lives. --F. Scott Fitzgerald
Democratic ex-Presidents can be good for something besides just building houses. One has been turned into a new tool for raking in cash.
Bill Clinton remains the ultimate boogeyman for former Sen. Jesse Helms. In a fund-raising a letter for his senatorial library, Helms invokes the specter of the former president leading the United Nations after Kofi Annan retires next year. "I'm sure you might agree that putting a left-wing, undisciplined and ethically challenged former President of the United States into a position of such power would be a tragic mistake"...the letter ... contains a petition asking President Bush to "rebuke all efforts by Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and every other liberal in Congress to push for Bill Clinton to become Secretary-General of the United Nations."
Does this remind anyone else of an old episode of Star Trek? Long after everyone else has lost interest, these two are still at each other's throats. The only question is, which one is Frank Gorshin?

But ol' Jesse has underestimated the ambition of his foe. The usual suspects abroad have something else in mind for The Clenis, and that figurehead spot isn't it. For a clue, read the latest rant from that Wicked Messenger, Seymour Hersh:
Europe is not going to tolerate us much longer. The rage there is enormous. I'm talking about our old-fashioned allies. We could see something there, collective action against us.
Since he's given up on getting the American voters to throw out Our Noble Lame Duck, he's turned from democracy to hopes of foreign occupation to impose domestic regime change. The blueprint was laid out more than forty years ago by a leftist science-fiction writer, Ward Moore, in his nightmare story, "It Becomes Necessary":
"France isn't enemy territory," she said .... "It's only one of the policing nations which --"

" 'Policing nations.' " He didn't raise his voice; he expressed his disgust softly, with a soft sneer, a soft contempt. "The U.S. isn't a two-bit country to be policed. If there's policing to be done, we do it. Policing nations, Third Force! Who do they think they are?"
Naturally their task would be a lot easier if the Euro-puppet placed in charge here were an actual American citizen, especially one many leftists still claim was the last "legitimately" elected President. Shudder at the thought of She Who Must Not Be Named installed back in the renamed Maison Blanche as our new Co-Proconsul.
