Having a busy summer?

I would wager that you are not having nearly as  busy ( or soon to be busy) summer season as our friends the Clinton family. How about officiating at a wedding ( Bill) , planning and organizing etc. the wedding of the year ( Bill, Hilary and Chelsea) buying a new mansion and of course Hilary’s day job of traveling hither and yon on various foreign affairs missions. Almost forgot, somehow in advance of all this Bill squeezed in  a trip to South Africa for some of the World Cup. Whew! Gotta be a tough life, being  a  Clinton and maintaining schedules like that.

Hard to know where to start. How about with the most confusing item listed above? For me, that would be the former President officiating at a wedding. The nuptials will be between New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, yes that is his name and an aide to Hilary, Huma Abedin. That “lavish ceremony” took place yesterday. As WCBS TV put it I guess Clinton was the officiator-in-chief. What qualified him  to perform the ceremony I have no clue.

The next actually scheduled big event is daughter Chelsea’s wedding on July 31 to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky in Rhinebeck, NY, some 100 miles from New York City.The Clintons must have gotten the Obama ok for this union because both the president and his wife have not spoken well of the profession of the  future Clinton  son-in-law. Bet the guest list for this soiree will be interesting.

And in an effort to help the depressed real estate market, the Clintons are closing in on the purchase of what can only be called a mansion  with some 7,000 square feet and a purchase price of a cool $11 million. So it’s good bye modest Chappaqua in northern Westchester County and hello Bedford Hills. Less than 10 miles away, it is still  a move up no matter how it is viewed. Besides, with neighbors like Richard Gere, Martha Stewart and Glenn Close, they will be  a perfect fit.

Sure hope  that Mr  Mezvinsky is aware of the truism that when you marry someone you marry their family as well.

  3. Maybe Bill could hire illegal immigrants to perform the lavish ceremony, yes the illegals that the Obama’s raids forced to be fired by companies. Or maybe Obama will donate the big fines from those companies to Chelsea’s wedding!

    I had to say that, don’t know what came over me! LOL
