Russell Frank

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines the overlapping newslore about former U.S. President Bill Clinton and the material prompted by the men who followed him as the Democratic Party’s standard bearers including Al Gore and John Kerry. It explains that most jokes about Clinton were about his sexual appetite, particularly his alleged involvement with Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, and Monica Lewinsky. It suggests that the jokes about Democratic presidential candidates Gore and Kerry have something to do with their defeat against George W. Bush despite their intelligence and experience.

Keywords:   Bill Clinton, newslore, John Kerry, Al Gore, Democratic Party, sexual appetite, George W. Bush, Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky
