Clinton's Insult Raises Republican Ire

ALBANY, N.Y. (T/P) - Republicans took aim at Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday for a speech in Aspen, Colorado, where she compared President Bush to Mad magazine's freckle-faced, "What, me worry?" kid, Alfred E. Neuman.

"At a time when he's focused on the security of our nation," A Republican National Committee official said, "Senator Clinton shows her true self-aggrandizing colors. Alfred E. Newmann is a tireless patriot and national treasure. To compare him to President Bush soils his good name and reputation."

A NY GOP chairperson demanded an apology, suggested censure, and implied that one of Porter Goss's intelligence agents (either the white one or the black one) devise an over-complicated trap for Senator Clinton, that, while appearing to be easily side-stepped, would actually result in an anvil being dropped on her head or her being hit in the face by a giant boxing glove on the end of a spring-loaded extension arm.

Alfred E. Newman's publicist released a generic written statement dismissing Senator Clinton's comment, that when folded in three parts changed the statement into a vaguely humorous reference to the Nixon administration and the 60's "hippie" counter culture.
