Joke Of the Day: Bill Clinton's Letter To John Hinckley


For those of you who may not be completely aware of John Hinckley, who he is, what he did, and why, here's a little history. John Hinckley was a seriously deranged young man who shot President Reagan many years back. John was absolutely obsessed with movie star Jodie Foster, and extremely jealous as well, and in his twisted mind, loved Jodie Foster to the point that to make himself known to her, attempted to assassinate President Reagan.

With that in mind...the staff at the mental facility treating John Hinckley reports intercepting the following letter from Bill Clinton:

To: John Hinckley

From: Bill Clinton

Dear John,

Hillary and I wanted to drop you a short note to tell you how pleased we are with the great strides you are making in your recovery. In our country's new spirit of understanding and forgiveness, we want you to know there is a bilateral consensus of compassion and forgiveness abroad throughout the land.

Hillary and I want you to know that no grudge is borne against you for shooting President Reagan. We, above all, are aware of how the mental stress and pain could have driven you to such an act of desperation. Hillary and I are confident that you will soon make a complete recovery and return to your family to join the world again as a healthy and productive young man.

Best wishes,

Bill & Hillary Clinton

PS: Barack Obama is screwing Jodie Foster.

I appreciate the laugh, Incog! My husband made a similar kind of joke this evening about an early dimise of Obama but didn't use Henckley.

All I can say is if he makes her his running mate, he better get a food taster...

I have to wonder why they'd pick a Lesbian, but it CRACKED ME UP!!!!!!

really good one, Incognito. There are a lot of people thinking Obama'd better get a food taster, kodiak, if they're running mates!

Here's a scenario: They take the White House together and Bill hits on Michelle. Wouldn't THAT be a story!????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The way both Clintons are behaving at the moment has put me on the verge of becoming a Republican.

God help us all.
