monica lewinsky is cheaper than bill clinton

He said that after the promotion ends, the Clinton condoms will go on sale in southern China for 29.8 Yuan (US$3.72) for a box of 12, while the Lewinsky model will be priced at 18.8 Yuan (US$2.35) for the same quantity.

"The Clinton condom will be the top of our line," he said. "The Lewinsky condom is not quite as good."

Those crazy Chinese are gonna name condoms after America's favorite dick sucker and suckee. And here's why:

Liu said the company had chosen to use the Clinton name because consumers viewed the former president as a responsible person, who would want to stress safe sex as an effective way to prevent the spread of the HIV virus.

Someone who gets a hummer in the oval office from someone who isn't his wife whilst on the phone with various world leaders is not exactly what i'd call "responsible", but then again, I'm sure a Chinese person in China would never eat Chop Suey. Different strokes.

The company also cites the pairs' dedicat[ion] to their jobs. Right, they were both really focused on the task at hand.

Why do they leave this, the most logical reason for the branding, for the very end of the article...
Clinton has campaigned aggressively for heightened AIDS awareness in China, where the disease is spreading rapidly.
