For some reason, this morning’s hoo-hah over Gary Johnson reminded me of a Polish joke from the Cold War. I will adopt it to the present circumstance:
Hillary Clinton is on a game show where you have to answer four questions to win a cash prize. She sits down with the host.
Host: So, Mrs. Clinton, are you ready for you first question?
Clinton: I’ve been ready since 1991, when I …
Host: OK, so … for your first question … what is Iraq?
Clinton: Iraq is a country that I voted to invade in 2003.
Host: That is correct! Now, for your second question … what is Libya?
Clinton: Libya is a country I decided to bomb in 2011.
Host: That is correct! Now, for your third question … what is Syria?
Clinton: Syria is a country I supported bombing in 2014.
Host: That is correct! Now, for your last question … and all the money … what is Aleppo?
Clinton squirms for a while, fiddles with her blackberry, stares off into space, bites her lip. She concentrates very hard. Finally, she clears her throat.
Clinton: Well, I’m not completely sure, but I’ll take a shot at it.
Host: THAT IS CORRECT!
