KINSHASA, CONGO–U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's temper flared yesterday when a Congolese university student asked for her husband's thinking on an international matter.Doesn't this peasant know that he's supposed to address her as "Your Royal Majesty?" And to grovel on his knees before her highness?
"My husband is not secretary of state. I am," an obviously annoyed Clinton replied sharply.
A week after former president Bill Clinton travelled to North Korea to secure the release of two detained American journalists and stole the limelight from the start of his wife's first trip to Africa, Clinton was clearly nettled by the question at a town hall forum in Kinshasa.
"You want me to tell you what my husband thinks?" she replied when the male student asked her what "Mr. Clinton" thought of World Bank concerns about a multibillion-dollar Chinese loan offer to the Democratic Republic of Congo. "If you want my opinion, I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channelling my husband," she said.
Maybe the upstart should of asked Queen Hillary how to make money in the cattle futures market. Or where to turn when you can no longer sexually satisfy your husband.
And what's the best aircraft to use for smuggling cocaine from Central America into the USA.
