Hillary Sells Own Tears on eBay



‘Hail Mary’ for Cash-strapped Campaign


In a bold strategy to raise funds for her cash-strapped presidential campaign, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton today announced that she was selling her own tears on the popular auction site eBay.

After lending her campaign $5 million of her own money prior to the Super Tuesday primaries, Mrs. Clinton’s resources were reportedly tapped out, leading her to auction off vials of her own tears with a suggested opening bid of $10,000.

While the posted eBay description of her tears does not attribute any healing properties to them, it does claim that their historic value could be priceless.

Mrs. Clinton’s decision to auction off her own tears, while admittedly an unorthodox strategy, was not nearly as unusual as some of the other fundraising ideas floated by her campaign in recent days, sources said.

According to sources close to the New York senator, Mrs. Clinton had toyed with a number of unusual strategies, including marrying former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

“From where we sat, it was a win-win situation,” one campaign aide said. “Hillary would have access to $200 million, and Mitt would get one step closer to the White House.”

Reportedly, the plan to marry Mr. Romney broke down when a representative for the former governor conveyed the message that Mr. Romney did not believe in polygamy.

“Hillary cried when she heard the news about Romney,” the aide said. “But hopefully, those tears will find a buyer.”

Elsewhere, a new study shows that spending hours on a cell phone may affect the quality of one’s sperm, raising hopes that hedge fund managers may have trouble reproducing.

Could Bill raise a princely sum by auctioning off his sperm?

He used to work so hard at 'giving it away.' So it makes sense really.

If any Republican tried this strategy, his/her vial would have to be labeled "Crocodile Tears."

Probably more than Larry Craig could.
