According to NewsMax:

Hillary Clinton: Bill Will Run the World

If Hillary Clinton gets elected president, her "first man" may just be running the world.

Hillary gave a clear hint last week at the prospect, comments that confirm a report in R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr.'s new book "The Clinton Crack-Up: The Boy President's Life After the White House" that Clinton has been mulling becoming Secretary-General of the United Nations.

Tyrrell writes that in 2001, Clinton's "political prospects were nil." Still, agents assigned to his Secret Service detail would later report that Clinton was talking about getting the job as Secretary-General of the United Nations."

Critics scoffed at the idea. But don't laugh too long.

At a fund-raiser last week, Hillary discussed her husband's role in a Hillary administration. She suggested it would be "illegal" to name her husband secretary of state if she becomes president, as some have asked her to do.

Instead, she said, she "can make him ambassador to the world, because we have a lot of work to do to get our country back in the standing it should be."

Perhaps Hillary would like to see her husband running the world body -- the U.N. -- as she runs the country.

So, to sum up: Hillary proposes possibly making Bill some sort of ambassador at large -- which is not even remotely the same as proposing that he become UN secretary general, but it sounds kinda-sorta the same to NewsMax. And UN secretary general isn't all that powerful a job, but for the purposes of this discussion it's described as a job in which you "run the world."

If what NewsMax is saying makes sense to you, you may be a clinical paranoid. Or you may be a right-wing Republican.

But I repeat myself.

I'm sure there's a statistically significant percentage of the population that finds this theory of Clinton plans for world domination utterly believable -- possibly a majority of the electorate in some of the redder states.
