Monica Lewinsky gives women a bad name. Not long ago, we had women who
understood that having serial affairs with married men old enough to be
your father was immoral and corrupt. Monica not only doesn't seem to
realize that, she doesn't even seem to understand these concepts.
Monica chats blithely, serenely about her affair with the President. No
personal detail embarrasses her. There is nary a hint of concern over the
fact that the President is a married man. Might the President have had
another girlfriend before, then or after? Maybe, acknowledges Monica with
a yawn - no big deal. What's a few sexually transmitted diseases among
Monica herself got impregnated by another older man while still "seeing"
the President - a minor inconvenience which she quickly aborted. Shame?
Perish the thought - Monica, you see, is simply "open" about her
sexuality. Open, I'll say, she practically has a sign planted above her
crotch saying "vacancy, apply now".
Let's see, what would we normally call a woman so slovenly, so avaricious,
so promiscuous........Ah yes, a slut - that's what we would call her. Do
we have sluts anymore? Monica recounts the tale of her time in DC with
bated breathlessness - she obviously views it as Monica's Big Adventure.
There is no sense of wrongdoing, no shame, no remorse.
The Lewinskys are indeed one strange family. Shamelessness, or is it
vulgarity, seem to grow on the family tree. Marcia Lewis reputedly helped
her daughter pick out sexy lingerie for her trysts with the President.
Dr. Lewinsky, who in former days would have challenged Mr. Clinton to a
duel, saved his wrath for Ken Starr and Linda Tripp. One can picture them
on a TV show, gleefully recounting every detail of their Monica's
unacknowledged debasement at the hands of Bill Clinton.
The NOW discredited feminists should be holding Monica up as a beacon of
the Left. She is surely the sexual revolution's finest moment. After
all, how many other young women have the brass to flash their underwear
at the boss? All in pursuit of meaningless sexual encounters with him and
other men at the same time? Pregnancy, no problem - hey, unlimited
abortion is why they're still standing with Bill. Indeed, Monica is a
perfect icon for the feminists. They ought to put her picture in that big
O in the middle of their logo.
And, let's see, what did Monica reap in her 15 minutes of fame?
Initially, a great job promotion for a lowly intern; secondly a couple of
mill for her book and TV appearances. Maybe she'll go on the talk show
circuit, or perhaps host a show (Deviants Unlimited?) for more of the big
bucks. Not bad for a couple of cigar tricks.
