Hey Hillary, good news: we’re not talking about your wealth perception problems at the moment!
Unfortunately, when you see what IS in the news, you’ll probably wish we were.
That’s right, after a ten-year absence, The Clintons’ ultimate Achilles’ Heel has returned: Monica Lewinsky. The former White House intern and frequent plaything of Slick Willy has decided to follow up her Vanity Fair tell-all essay with a televised National Geographic documentary on the 1990’s that begins airing this Sunday night. “I was a virgin to humiliation of that level, until that day,” Lewinsky reveals in the special about the scandal. Well, at least she still had some type of virginity left to cling to, I suppose.
All kidding aside, it really is sad to see how Monica’s life has been ruined. She speaks in the interview of the pain she experienced as a result of seeing practically everyone in the media refer to her as a “slut and a bimbo.” She’ll never have a shot at a normal life as a result of a president taking advantage of her, precisely at the moment when she might have made a future for herself. Sure, it takes two to tango, but when you see Bill Clinton living high on the hog still to this day, you do have to feel somewhat sorry for her.
Obviously, the timing of Lewinsky’s public return is rather inconvenient to all things Clinton right now, which is among the reasons why I celebrate the re-emergence. Maybe Monica needs revenge on some level, and she knows she’ll never have a better time to exact that revenge than right now. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I sure would have liked to see Bubba asked about the world’s most famous intern when he sat down with NBC’s David Gregory last week. Perhaps if Lewinsky keeps speaking up, we’ll get our chance to hear a response from The Great Stain-maker.
