slide_2262_29053_large

Before Current TV reporters Laura Ling and Euna Lee had even returned home to America following former President Clinton’s trip to North Korea to secure their release from prison, the news was already making light of the episode with sexy jokes about President Clinton’s notorious appetite.

• “Bill Can Still Get the Women: Negotiates Freedom for Jailed US Journos in N. Korea,” New York Post

We never thought we’d see such a low-brow in headline the Post. A sign of the times indeed!

• “Bill Liberates Two Young Women,” Political Cartoons

“Phase one: Bill Clinton liberates two young women from Kim Jong Il. Phase two: Hillary liberates two young women from Bill Clinton.” And, of course, Clinton’s smoking a cigar — which brings back all sorts of scary images that we thought had been banished from the mind’s eye a long time ago. See J.D. Crowe’s comic here.

•”Bill Clinton: International Man of History,” Politico

Politico’s headline calls to mind another notorious swinger, Austin Powers.

Basil Exposition: The Cold War’s over.
Austin Powers: Ah, finally those capitalist pigs will pay for their crimes, eh? Eh, comrades? Eh?
Basil Exposition: Austin, we won.
Austin Powers: Oh, groovy, smashing. Yay capitalism!

•”The Tearful Homecoming,” Gawker

Maybe the straightest Gawker write-up we’ve ever seen. Those damn hidebound editors always spoil their fun.
