I’m here in Shanghai on a trade mission, learning we might export to China that would be beneficial to America and Alaska. While browsing the English language Shanghai Daily newspaper this morning over morning coffee, I learned about an export to China of a former president’s name, plus the name of – shall we say - a “close” friend of his.

Read please, an excerpt from the article:

“A rubber manufacturer in China has begun marketing condoms under the names “Clinton” and “Lewinski,” apparently seeking to exploit the White House affair that led to the impeachment of America’s 42nd president.

Spokesman Liu Wenhua of the Guangzhou Rubber Group said . . . ‘the Clinton condom will be top of the line. The Lewinski product is not quite as good . . . The names we chose are symbols of people who are responsible and dedicated to their jobs . . . I believe Clinton cannot be unhappy about this because he is a very generous man.”

Draw your own conclusions. Suffice to say, this is an export we can do without.
