It's OK to Say Monica Lewinsky's Name If You're Going to Talk About Monica Lewinsky and don't mention Bill Clinton
At the Democratic National Convention, Bill Clinton started his speech with in the spring of 1971, I met a girl. Your thoughts immediately went to “which girl?’ and then he said the first time I saw her, we were in a class on political and civil rights. You knew then it wasn’t Monica Lewinsky
On he went with she had thick blond hair, big glasses. Wore no makeup. And she exuded this strength of self-possession I found magnetic. After the class, I followed her out, intending to introduce myself. I got close enough to touch her back, but I couldn’t do it.
The idea that Bill when planning seducing a woman is place to start, considering, of course, that, as president, he was formally impeached for repeatedly having oral sex with Monica Lewinsky. The most memorable the cigar and the blue dress.
Clinton, wants to talk summer of 1971 when meeting Hillary. Other people could say how about the Monica Lewinsky summer?
Monica Lewinsky’s name is not verboten. It’s okay to say it just not in the same sentence with Bill’s.
Phrases like “the things they’ve gone through together” are meaningless. Bill and Hillary will never escape his affairs, of course, but speaking around them—as if they are still a closely guarded secret—takes us back to a time when Matt Drudge had the power to spark a national media frenzy, that resulted in many months of investigations and Bill lying through his teeth.
The Republicans spent millions on impeaching Clinton, but then did not vote to remove him from office. If they had the balls to take the second step and remove him from office there would not be a Hillary presidential candidate today.
