I’m Going To China, Baby!

The Clintons are going to China. Again. What a shopping trip this will be. Sure, we have to meet top Chinese officials and tour some factories and schools, but the real reason to go to China is all the cheap stuff. And I don’t mean that in a Walmart kind of way.

The trip almost got cancelled. Some Chinese guy named Chen Guangcheng was arrested as an activist a couple of years ago. In China, that means the government doesn’t like what someone did, but instead of making them disappear, they put them into prison for 40 years.

Anyway, Guangcheng escaped. How he did that is beyond me. The man is blind. Somehow or another he found his way to U.S. protection and now we have to figure out what to do with him.

So, we’re going to China to talk about strategy and economy and ways to improve our relations and this crazy Chinese dissident manages to escape into U.S. custody. I have no doubt that the Chinese let him go so they could embarrass the U.S. Well, it backfired. We’re coming anyway. I have a huge shopping list.

Even Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner wants to go on this trip. Bill told him about the shopping deals, so he’s going. While we’re there we’ll sell fighter jets to the Taiwanese, continue to harbor a dissident or two, and gain 10 pounds. And shop. Great Wall, and Great Mall of China, here we come.

After that, we’re going to stop off and visit with the Dalai Lama again. He’s like the Rodney Dangerfield of Chinese politics. He gets no respect.
