Monica, I feel for you

HBO had a special on Monica Lewinsky tonight. Since it was opposite a current TVA(QAF), I had to pass, but will tape it off of HBO Plus tomorrow.

I know that I am not the most politically aware person, but I think I saw enough back when this shit was going on to know that Monica got the royal shaft (pun not intended).

She is not the anti-christ.
She is not "everything that is wrong with America" (aside: Isn't that Rush?)

I watched this guy ask her a question, and by doing so, insinuate that she should be ashamed for causing the Constitution issues that surrounded this situation. He continued to comment that it was shameful for her to make money in this fashion, books, public appearances, etc.
Excuse me???
Monica's actions weren't the cause of the Constitutional crisis. That's all on Billy.
And as for the "make money" bullshit, one has to give a little compassion. This woman, due to the judgment passed on her by virtually everyone in America, will NEVER be able to work in her chosen career field. She's become too controversial to ever be affiliated with politics again. Fire up, Monica, for picking yourself up and making this entire shithouse full of lemons into lemonade for yourself. Hopefully, it's cathartic. You're owed at least that, after everyone in this situation that you had any level of intimacy with took every opportunity they could to fuck you over.

Can you honestly imagine it? It's one thing to be dogged out by an ex-lover and to have a friend spread your business, but to have it happen in front of the world audience?

No wonder she's in therapy. There wouldn't be enough tranqs in the world if that happened to me.

Am I missing some crucial piece of the puzzle? Why does everyone villify her? Did she sleep with Bin Laden? Did she say "invisible" instead of "indivisible" during the Pledge of Allegiance? Did she wear plaid with polka dots? What did SHE do wrong?

Well, I think it's time to put the soapbox away for a while.

    Who's That Girl. How did I love this movie? I remember watching it 6 times when we rented it, but couldn't watch 15 minutes of it a few years ago.

    The movie of The Dark is Rising still gives me nightmares. Not because it was powerful, but because it was the worst reinterpretation of a book…
