Clinton’s Dream

Bill Clinton has a dream in which he meets George Washington. He says, “George, what can I do to make things better for the people?”

George Washington says, “Lower the taxes.”

Clinton replies, “Oh, George, I can’t do that.”

The next night, Clinton dreams again but this time Thomas Jefferson is there. “Thomas,” Clinton says, “what can I do to make things better for the public”?

Thomas Jefferson replies, “Lower the taxes.” Clinton says, “Ugh! You too? I can’t do *that*!”

The next night, Clinton dreams yet again, and this time Abraham Lincoln is there.

“Abe Lincoln,” Clinton says, “what can I do to make things better for the people”?

Lincoln thinks for a moment and then says…

“Er…. Go to the theater.”
