OK I thought of something to write about.
I haven’t listened to Beyonce’s Lemonade yet but apparently it is some kind of denouncement of Jay Z’s cheating with a chick on the side, or in general a lament about “other women.”
Ahh…what rarified air one must live in to have Beyonce and still feel the need to get side action (and be able to get that side action) but I digress.
Anyway, Monica Lewinsky, perhaps the most notable chick on the side in U.S. political history, tweeted this:
And you know what? I say good for her. It only took twenty years but at least now she can laugh about that whole kerfuffle.
3.5 readers, regardless of your political persuasion, can we all agree that its way past time to let Monica off the hook for, you know, her extracurricular activities vis a vis the executive branch?
Should she have ever really been on the hook in the first place?
Was she an adult at the time? Sure. But she was a young one. Like early twenties. And the President of the United States, the frigging Leader of the Free World came on to her…
I’m sorry but I can’t fault her for playing that saxophone.
And between the President of the United States or the intern in her early 20’s, I feel like the Prez bore the greater responsibility to keep those escapades from happening.
Not that it would ever happen but hell, if I ever find myself working for a lady president, and the lady president asks me to do some exploratory research down south…I don’t think I’d be able to say no. I mean, she’s the lady president.
Get on with your bad self, Monica. At least you made the late 1990’s interesting.
