So, in an "article" entitled "Where is Monica Lewinsky" that runs approximately 600 words, the first 300 are used as a platform to reiterate Rand Paul's attack lines and latest Clinton smears. The rest is half-assed summary of bits from Lewinsky's Wikipedia page that ends in 2012 and the provides a guess that maybe she'll be more visible now if she publishes a book, which she may or may not do. Great job, Caldwell. Oh, and fark you, CNN.

The GOP's latest foolproof plan to reach out to women is to remind them that the GOP was into slut-shaming before slut-shaming was cool.

Wouldn't bringing up Lewinsky help Hillary?  She was the victim in that episode.  I am sure every woman who had a husband cheat on them would be sympathetic to Hillary's situation.

The former White House intern, whose sexual relationship with the 42nd President led to his impeachment, will never be able to escape the spotlight -- as long as the Clintons are still in it.

Thanks to assholes like you who feel the need to write articles with titles like  Where is Monica Lewinsky? NOBODY CARES WHERE LEWINSKY IS.... Get it? It's YOU that's bringing her back in to the farking spotlight, because you're such a piece of shiat blogger that you can't come up with anything better.

Pretty much.  I made it through the first paragraph before I realized where that train wreck of an article was heading.

I think it's pretty reasonable to assume that Clinton did do better and Monica happens to be the only one we all found out about.
 
2014-02-11 09:33:10 AM  
Last I heard she was basically unable to get a job, or ever show her face in public without being harassed. She couldn't trust anyone, or live anything like a normal life. Because of people like this author.

So yeah. Go f*ck yourself, CNN.

These days, I imagine she's fending off hordes of reporters doing a "Where is she/are they now?"

Been about 20 years since she first blew up, n'est-ce pas?

Crazy eyes and smile.  Pretty sure she'd be wild in bed but you'd need a ball or ring gag for safety.

I still think that she should have lent her name to some quality knee-pads for flooring and roofing installers.
Hell, for about ten years after she became famous everyone called kneepads "their monica's" anyway.

Also the GOP, for not having anything more current to attack Democrats with.  Not that the GOP has been great at political maneuver lately, but this is an especially pathetic effort.  I'm actually embarrassed FOR THEM, because they're dredging this crap up.

It doesn't matter. The goal here isn't to actually blame Hillary for the Lewinsky scandal, it's simply to hamstring her campaign...to turn this into such a distraction that Hillary/the DNC have to think twice about putting Bill onstage (or making her the candidate at all). The GOP is simply betting that they'll lose fewer votes to the backlash against this tactic than they'd lose to his exceptional speaking skills.

QFT. Honestly, CNN, the whole "concern troll" approach to political smear tactics is beneath you. "We want to exploit the opening Rand Paul provided, but without actually appearing as if we're condoning Rand Paul's smear tactic."

Thanks.  Glad I didn't have to click.

I just came here to tell subby:

It wont work
A "scandal" has a shelf life - it moves from scandal (OMG, did you hear) to rumor, to facts, to finish. This can't be an effective distraction because it isn't new.
I watched a re-run of Bill's public statement admitting what happened and thought, "Damn, that must have been hard and embarrassing" - and also? over.
The only backlash the GOP should bet on is how reluctant their lovers may be about performing consensual fellatio and having it turn into a version of herpes. Shameful and never goes away.
Good job, GOP

Of course it won't work, but they're not known for letting that stop them.
