Barack Obama was elected almost four years ago, which means the rest of the world loves us now… so this negative reaction to Hillary Clinton in Egypt must be because they hate her hairdo… or lack thereof:
CAIRO (Reuters) – Protesters threw tomatoes and shoes at U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s motorcade on Sunday during her first visit to Egypt since the election of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi.
A tomato struck an Egyptian official in the face, and shoes and a water bottle landed near the armoured cars carrying Clinton’s delegation in the port city of Alexandria.
A senior state department official said that neither Clinton nor her vehicle, which were around the corner from the incident, were struck by any of the projectiles.
Protesters chanted: “Monica, Monica”, a reference to Former President Bill Clinton’s extra-marital affair. Some chanted: “leave, Clinton”, Egyptian security officials said.
They’re only trying to help, I suppose.
In other Clinton news, while Hillary’s motorcade was dodging vegetables in Cairo, Bill was at a Las Vegas titty bar pouring tomato paste on a dancer named Champagne, pressing his face into her chest and making motorboat noises until the wee hours of the morning.
Update: Ah, Arab Spring!
