January 26, 1998 -- Brad Berson
As if we weren't tired enough hearing about Paula Jones,
now we have every news agency, paper and station prattling on
endlessly about Monica Lewinsky's unwitting allegations of
sexual relations with President Clinton in the Whitehouse.
There's only one problem - it's all hearsay based on taped
conversations between Linda Tripp and Miss Lewinsky.
Hey folks - I can boast to everyone who'll listen to me
that I slept with Christie Brinkley, but the likelihood of
finding DNA evidence of her vaginal mucous in my moustache is
Let's talk about Miss Lewinsky for a moment, who
apparently is so twisted that she alleges to have kept as a
souvenir a semen-stained dress from her oval-office
encounter. The woman is clearly obsessed and psychotic.
Then you have to wonder about the agenda of someone like
Tripp, who then tapes all these gossip sessions. Of course,
she's a Republican. No mystery as to motive.
Everyone seems quick to opine that, assuming guilt on the
part of El Presidente and sweet purity and innocence on the
part of the Intern, the President should know better. Reality
check: It takes two to tango. Of course we still
don't know if they did anything else than tango.
The last laugh is the opinion polls regarding the public's
feelings that the President's moral values represent the
moral values of America's people. It seems the President is
losing some points there, but not a lot. It's no wonder! Just
take a look at the rate of infidelity in the United States.
The President's moral standards perfectly represent
those of the American people.
The saddest part of this media feeding frenzy is that with
all the other important things happening in our country and
around this world - talks in the war-torn middle east, the
Pope in Cuba, the Hussein problem, and our own issues of
debt, education, taxes - that newscasters left the other
countries in droves to come to Washington D.C. to cover the
Presidential Penis Politics.
How pathetic, that American media and supposedly, the
American people are so concerned about the President's sexual
habits that they're willing to ignore the rest of the world
and wait for the next bit of gossip. And worse, the same
people are ready to convict the President on hearsay and
rumours, and begin talking of resignation and impeachment.
Who cares?? We shouldn't. Not unless President Clinton's
proclivities are affecting his ability to perform his job.
Right now, the MEDIA and the PEOPLE WHO BOW TO THIS MEDIA
FRENZY are interfering with the President's ability to
perform his job. Get a life!
