Xi’s on First

, ,


“Xi Jinping, the man widely expected to succeed China’s President, Hu Jintao, was named to the country’s top military commission on Monday, further cementing his front-runner status.”

Which reminded Gwynnie of the famous Abbott & Costello comedy routine.

Scene 1 – Barry Hussein Obama is being briefed by his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the Oval Office.

Barry: Hillary! Nice to see you. What’s happening?

Hillary: Sir, I have the report here about the new leader of China.

Barry: Great. Lay it on me.

Hillary: Xi is the new leader of China.

Barry: Who is?

Hillary: No. Hu is the current leader.

Barry: So what I’m asking you is who is the new leader of China?

Hillary: Xi is.

Barry: I mean her name.

Hillary: Her name? Who?

Barry: The new leader of China.

Hillary: The new leader of China is a guy.

Barry: She’s a guy?

Hillary: Of course Xi’s a guy. Hu’s retiring.

Barry: Now whaddya’ asking me who’s retiring?

Hillary: I’m telling you Hu is retiring.

Barry: Well, I asked you first, but I don’t care who’s retiring. You’re telling me she’s a guy? Leading China?

Hillary: Yes. I told you. Xi is the new leader.

Barry: Great! Does she have a name?

Hillary: I have been telling you over and over. Look, maybe this is a little complex for you. I’ll just leave you the report. [a door slams]

Barry: Bitch! I’ll bet she’s a guy too!
