Opening Arguments

Fish in a barrel

This would be too easy, so I'll just let you do your own jokes:

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.

Next, I want to be lectured by Barack Obama on the need for humility, Hillary Clinton on cooperation, John McCain on constancy, Rush Limbaugh on compassion for drug addicts, Bret Favre on retirement . . .

Strictly speaking, slick willy *is* monogamous. He has one wife, no more, no less.

The word he should be using is "fidelity", not "monogamy". Slick willy is very monogamous: one wife, no more, no less.

Increasing support for monogamy is probably a non-starter. Since 2006, a majority of the babies born to women 30 and under in the US had celibate mothers.

They weren't chaste, of course. That would preclude conventional pregnancy. But there's a big difference between refraining from sex (chaste) and refraining from marriage (celibate).

People want immigrants to learn English, but they elect presidents who don't what the meaning of "is" is....
