Press Secretary Robert Gibbs broke the news today that because efforts by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to rein in Israel's proposed new settlements were rebuked last week, embarrassing the Administration, the President will propose his TOT'S (Tiny Ornery Toddlers)CRUSADE tonight.
Saying that, "its never too soon to get involved," he will ask America's parents to donate all of their able bodied children between the ages of 3 to 6 for a march to Jerusalem to free this holy city from the Jewish oppressors.
In the original Children's Crusade in 1212, children as young as 6 gathered in European cities to march on Jerusalem to take this holy place back from the Muslims. In answering Helen Thomas as to whether he considered this ironic, Gibbs replied, "History is irrelevent to the President when he makes historic choices."
In a follow up question concerning using pre-school children for such dangerous missions, he noted "that children are much more mature now, and that the President wisely chose younger kids because they are more malleable."
