THE RETURN OF BILL?….Via South Knox Bubba, here’s a report from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review suggesting the Kofi Annan will step down as UN Secretary General this fall and will be replaced by….

Bill Clinton.

Oh, it’s a thought to die for. I don’t even care if the idea is nonsense, it’s just so delicious that I want to savor it for a while. Can’t you imagine the reaction down at Rush Limbaugh HQ, sending Rush’s blood pressure through the roof and causing him to splutter incoherently into the microphone for an entire show? It’s a delightful image, isn’t it?

But why Bill? Why not Jimmy Carter? He’s got a Nobel Prize, after all! (Just kidding, Megan….)
