Monica Lewinsky: “Sure, my boss took advantage of me”

Monica Lewinsky: “Sure, my boss took advantage of me”

And Bill Clinton still is the most revered elder statesman of the Democratic Party

From Vanity Fair, Monica Exclusive: Monica Lewinsky Writes About Her Affair with President Clinton:

After 10 years of virtual silence (“So silent, in fact,” she writes, “that the buzz in some circles has been that the Clintons must have paid me off; why else would I have refrained from speaking out? I can assure you that nothing could be further from the truth”), Lewinsky, 40, says it is time to stop “tiptoeing around my past—and other people’s futures. I am determined to have a different ending to my story. I’ve decided, finally, to stick my head above the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past. (What this will cost me, I will soon find out.)” …,

“Sure, my boss took advantage of me, but I will always remain firm on this point: it was a consensual relationship. Any ‘abuse’ came in the aftermath, when I was made a scapegoat in order to protect his powerful position. . . . The Clinton administration, the special prosecutor’s minions, the political operatives on both sides of the aisle, and the media were able to brand me. And that brand stuck, in part because it was imbued with power.”

Which brings to mind this Branco cartoon:

Hillary Clinton War on Women

Want to know how in-the-tank the media still is for Bubba? Here’s how USA Today headlines it:

She didn’t accuse him of rape, so what does consent have to do with it? He was a powerful boss who took advantage of a young intern. That used to be a prime offense.

“I’ve decided, finally, to stick my head above the parapet”

I’m sorry, but that’s just comedy gold.

One thing to remember about Ball-less Bill;

He IS a serial sexual abuser of women. I believe him to be a rapist.

One thing to remember about Hill-larry;

Her only real accomplishment in life has been enabling really bad men. Decades of that.

Bill Clinton was elected, in large measure, as the first feminist president.

We’d just been through the Anita Hill hysteria where the media told us that even mere accusations of sexual harassment in the work place should be enough to deny someone high office.

And yet a few years later, Bill Clinton was an admitted sexual harasser and accused rapist, and we were told that it was ok.

While it was not shocking to see the media try to save Clinton, it was depressing to see that a significant portion of the female electorate was apparently ok with this sort of activity after all.

I do hope that Rand Paul continues to hammer Clinton as the Dems keep pushing the war on women meme…

As social scientist and former liberal Arthur C. Brooks says in this excellent, revealing article …

“The practical implication of this is that you might want your daughter to marry a Republican.”

I don’t always chase away my daughters’ boyfriends …

But when I do, they’re Democrats.

From 2006, but still a good read:

Give Lewinski her day in the sun, then move on. Any attempt to tar Hillary with her husband’s sins will seem perverse, and Bill is just a distraction, most appropriately confined to the entertainment section of your brain.

    I disagree. This is useful as push-back on the “war on wimmins” BS.

    The hypocrisy fairly drips off of whole Collectivist groups of people over this. Note that I use the term “hypocrisy” correctly. It is not a failure by a fallible person to live up to a standard in which they believe. It is the public pretense of holding a value you have no intention to honor.

    SmokeVanThorn in reply to Immolate. | May 6, 2014 at 5:12 pm

    It’s not tarring her with her husband’s sins – it’s tarring her with her own enabling of those sins and her ruthless orchestration and participation in the personal destruction of her husband’s victims.

To adapt the Va-jay-jay Monologues, “If it was harassment, it was the GOOD kind of harassment …”

ZurichMike | May 6, 2014 at 2:27 pm

Why now? Team Hillary trying to inoculate itself against future Monica eruptions that might tarnish Hillary “war on women” meme.

I’m glad she took back the narrative. And she got to keep the cigar too, such a deal!

An act of superior exploitation is merely harassment. It’s not harassment-harassment. The semantic discrepancy is analogous to the rape and rape-rape distinction.

A bigot is a sanctimonious hypocrite. Democrats are not bigots. The Left are not bigots. They are neither sanctimonious nor hypocritical. They are charlatans and exquisitely coherent. Caveat emptor.

She’s back for another 15 mins of fame. Her life must be pathetic.

    TrooperJohnSmith in reply to showtime8. | May 7, 2014 at 2:49 pm

    If she’d been harassed by the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, she’d be an icon of the Left. Her name would be invoked in reverence anywhere feminists gather. She would also be considerably enriched by the stockholders of said company and would likely had scored a network news show (MSNBC anyone?), a talk show or a “women’s issues” reporting gig.

    However, since she was used and abused by a Democratic POTUS, she’s just a piece of Jimmy Carville’s “trail-ah-pawk trash”.

    It’s just your ordinary Democratic vitamin-infused, octane-injected double standard on steroids!

I believe she was wronged by a lot of people in this country.

The media crucified her for being young and stupid and to save the Clinton administration and reputation. They harrassed her even after the scandel for having the nerve to tarnish a liberal president. She had to leave the country for years just to attempt to regain control of her life and still the tracked her and harrassed her well after the pervert was out of office.

Her friend used her to gain publicity and fame.

Both political parties attacked her and shamed her to either defend a degenerate, or destroy a liberal.

Not a good time in our countries history, we should have been better than that, but we were not.

    Uncle Samuel in reply to John 53. | May 6, 2014 at 4:51 pm

    No, Monica and Bill both wronged and disrespected the country.

    He is no more at fault than she, the silly, spoiled, shallow intern who chased Clinton like a groupie.

    They both screwed around on the taxpayer’s time and dime.

Jesus Christ. These attention-whoring cum dumpsters will just never shut up already. Monica, no one cares about how many of Bill’s cigars you jammed up your hoochie or how many dry cleaning bills for sploogy dresses you had to pay.

    SmokeVanThorn in reply to Marco100. | May 6, 2014 at 5:14 pm

    Bill – Does Hillary know you’re posting comments on this blog?

      Marco100 in reply to SmokeVanThorn. | May 7, 2014 at 10:11 pm

      The story has nothing to do with Bill, it has to do with Monica’s attention-seeking for nothing more than having been a slut, ten years after the fact, when she’s completely irrelevant.

    JackRussellTerrierist in reply to Marco100. | May 7, 2014 at 12:26 pm

    It’s no wonder you’ve already got four thumbs-down votes. I’ve been reading this blog and posting here for a couple years now. I’ve never seen such a disrespectful, vile post written about somebody, especially a young woman, who has committed no crime, was very young at the time of the incident, and whose actions have no direct impact on the life of the poster.

    Most here have more self-respect than to present themselves in the way you have with this post. You should be ashamed of yourself. You’ve demeaned yourself far more than you have Monica Lewinsky.

Jaw-dropping consensual ignominy provided by Bill –“parse my words carefully”- Clinton, to say the very least.

Uncle Samuel | May 6, 2014 at 4:47 pm

As I recall, Miss Monica was the flirtatious aggressor in that little affair. She was the one who talked about and showed her thong. Billy Jeff just assented to her attentions, enjoyed the attention and fun.

    TrooperJohnSmith in reply to Uncle Samuel. | May 7, 2014 at 3:02 pm

    Powerful and famous men are pursued by women all the time. It is incumbent on them to think with the big head and say “no”. The POTUS needs to hold himself to an even higher standard.

SmokeVanThorn | May 6, 2014 at 5:17 pm

That cheap little hussy forcing her attentions on such a dear boy!

Captain Keogh | May 6, 2014 at 5:24 pm

Rand Paul to his ever lasting credit is the only Republican to call Hillary out for her husband’s behavior and the hypocrisy on the “War on Women” meme. Of course Hillary Rodham Clinton can always count on John McCain and Lindsey Graham to run interference for her.

Captain Keogh | May 6, 2014 at 5:26 pm

I used to see Monica Lewinsky every Friday morning at the Grey Dog Cafe in Greenwich Village (circa 1990 or 2000) coming in with a New York Times under her arm and a cell phone glued to her ear drinking her latte. Believe me when people stared and pointed at her she reveled in it. She loved being recognized.

Captain Keogh | May 6, 2014 at 5:27 pm

Ne bad – I meant circa 1999 not 1990.

Henry Hawkins | May 6, 2014 at 5:28 pm

Aren’t Chelsea and Moanica about the same age? 35-40? They could become besties! What a scene that evokes… Chelsea, Monica, Baby Cinton, Grandma Hillary, Grandpa Bill…..

    TrooperJohnSmith in reply to Henry Hawkins. | May 7, 2014 at 2:53 pm

    That has TLC “reality” show written all over it. It would hit lows that Honey Boo-Boo can only dream about.

    Y’all remember when the “L” in TLC actually stood for “learning”?

What a wonderful party. Let’s look at the people it respects.

A likely rapist and serial molester (Bill), a person who used the government to invade their opponents’ privacy and try to destroy their lives (Bill and Hillary), an actual traitor (Kerry), a Nazi murderer (Sharpton), and a hypocritical con-artist (Gore).

Makes Obama look almost normal.

Boggles my mind to read the Poor Little Monica comments here. Suggest the readers who are so knee-jerk anti-Clinton do a little research and find some of Moronica’s early interviews seeking to extend her pathetic claim to fame.
