The Clinton/Lewinsky Affair



Flashback Friday


Hey America you’re looking at the wrong dress. Remember that famous blue dress and this statement made by Bill Clinton “I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” well, Bill the blue dress gave you away.

Sixteen years ago, I was working as a free-lance writer for Street News, a newspaper sold by homeless people in New York City. Street News aimed to create self-sufficiency for homeless and unemployed people. My Editor Indio Washington called me up one night and asked me to weigh in on the hottest topic since the invention of sliced bread, “The Clinton Intern Affair.”

Now she has a memoir entitled Monica’s Story. It’s rumored that she received $12 million. It’s ironic that the title of my article sixteen years ago describes her net worth today.


She Works Hard For the Money

The name Monica Lewinsky has left a bitter taste in my mouth. Since the beginning of this whole zipper gate scandal between “that woman” and Bill Clinton, I haven’t spent one second feeling sorry for her nor do I feel that she’s been given a bad rap. Monica is nothing more than a publicity hound. She got popular the cheap way and succeeded in belittling herself. She’s the Jessica Hahn of the 90s and continues without shame to parade herself in front of the media as an innocent woman scorned. The real deal is that she enjoyed being the other woman. The results of her past affairs has always ended in someone else’s pain.

This time it was an entire nation that’s suffering for her trampy ways. We were laughed at. And, she declared that she didn’t realize what she was doing. Yeah, Right! Monica “blew the wrong dude at the wrong time and told the wrong people.

Or did she?

All Ms. Lady Cares about now is trying to gain sympathy and dollars from her book sales… And she is trying to redeem herself by continuing to appear in the media and air more of her so-called “tragic” life.

Somebody of sane mind should tell her that confession is not always good for the soul.

I hope that every young woman in America will take a good look at the damage Monica has done to her life. And if they’re thinking of taking the same high road to fame, they should take a minute to contemplate the price that comes with fifteen minutes of fame.

Monica Lewinsky will not go down in history as the woman who almost brought down a Presidency, but as the woman who went down on him.

She confused cheap sexual thrills with love.

Love had nothing to do with what she was doing. If all she wanted was a job, I’m sure that there are employment agencies in D.C. that could have suited her needs. I know that we haven’t seen or heard the last of Monica. I’m sure with her new book there will be Monica the Movie, Monica the B’way play, Monica the television series and a talk show since she has so much to talk about.

Well, Congratulations Monica, you have made it to the big times! I hope she is happy with her new celebrity status. She is now the most famous woman in America. And, just think all it took for her to get there was to wear a blue dress and sit on the President’s lap and “blow “a tune. You go girl, hooray for Hollywood.
