Monica Lewinsky was in Jerusalem at a conference where she gave a speech last week. And as part of her paid appearance, she was supposed to sit on a stage with a moderator, ala Hillary Clinton style, and answer questions from the press and the audience. Well, everything went fine until a news director for a local TV station asked her to comment on Bill Clinton’s comment that he didn’t owe her a “personal apology”. At that, Lewinsky said, “I’m sorry. I’m not going to be able to do this”. Took off her lapel mic and walked off stage.
Now wait just a goll-darn minute.
Here we have somebody getting paid a rather large sum of money for only one reason. She had an affair with the President of the United States, and for the second time in our nation’s history, it led to his impeachment. Her entire fame and fortune she has earned in life has been because of that affair. Had Monica Lewinsky just been another White House intern, done her job, kept her pants on, and left, no one in the country would have ever heard of her. But she chose not to do that. She chose to have an affair with him. I didn’t choose it for her and neither did you.
For her to act this way now is not only hypocritical, it’s just plain stupid. You’re telling me that you won’t answer a question about your most famous few moments in your life… the only moments in your life that brought you any sort of fame and fortune? And you’re in a foreign country simply because of those moments, and you got paid a huge sum of money, also because of those moments. And you get teary eyed because it brings back “that dark place” you had to suffer through because you had sex with Bill Clinton? Really?
Maybe Monica Lewinsky needs to finally (after 25 years) grow up and stop acting like a little baby. The lesson that she should have learned in the past quarter century is that she chose to become a celebrity through her behavior, and now she has made her bed. She now has to lie in it. It’s that simple.
It’s just one of those things that you see all the time where idiots decide after they’ve become famous that they don’t like the notoriety and they wish they weren’t famous anymore. That’s just what you thought have thought of before you became famous. Once you’ve opened Pandora’s Box of Fame, and let the genie out, you’re never going to get it back in…oh, the fame will go away for some people. For Lewinsky? Nah. Her tombstone will read, “Monica Lewinsky…she had sex with the President”.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
