Anon: Mr President, is it true that you've been having 'sexual relations' with a busty intern'?
BC: Yup; it sure is.
Anon: How was it?
BC: Really great thanks; Monica sure knows how to make a guy feel good, she gave it her all.
Anon: Did Hillary mind about this bit of Rumpy Pumpy?
BC: No, not at all. Hillary's a good old sport; she understands that I need to get my hands around some young Californian flesh occasionally.
Anon: And now onto more important matters Mr President; what did you eat for breakfast this morning?
BC: Hey, you're getting a tad controversial there my friend; no comment, no comment!
Isn't it always better simply to tell the truth. Having a bit of 'how's ya father' in the White House certainly isn't illegal, so why the crazy insistence on lying.
It's all in the past now, but I'm sure people will always remember him (and his wife) for this one episode. I heard someone on the radio last night correctly saying 'a scandal is only a scandal if you lie about it'.
My advice (as Monica's blue dress would testify) is that it's always best to come clean!
She should have washed her dress. Gross.ReplyDelete
Bill Clinton was in my town giving a speech at the University last weekend. Several friends of mine went to meet him. I had to work, plus I'm not supporting his wife for president. I'm a Bernie Sanders fan!
Just as long as you're not a Chump fan!Delete
Oh, God, no.Delete
Why do we all pretend to be so shocked when this happens? It's something that has always gone on, and always will, whilst there are men in positions of power and trust, and impressionable young girls - or these days, boys, too. It's the being caught out that is the shocker. JFK, for all his clean-cut image, used his power to seduce young girls too.ReplyDelete
It was all so long ago that it ceases to shock or amaze.
At the time of that initial interview when Clinton was first asked about his relations with Monica, I had the sound on the TV turned off, and never has a man looked more guilty !
My main memory of the affair was 'why doesn't he just tell the truth?'.Delete
Yes, it would have saved so much trouble, but think of all the useless hours the media would have lost !Delete
What tawdry revelations will surface if Trump becomes President?
Don't even think about it!!!Delete
You say: "It's all in the past now". So why rake it up, Cro? Bit of titillation, is it?ReplyDelete
I too do think that, on the whole, the truth is good, if possible, to tell and be told. However, the world isn't that simple. People's relationships aren't that simple. Have you never told a (white) lie? Please do not compromise yourself by answering my question.
Other than that, and here is a truth: Ain't Bill a looker? For that alone his rather attractive wife should be voted into office.
Poking fun at pompous politicians is one of life's pleasures. Did I see 'Hillary' and 'attractive' used in the same sentence? Surely not!Delete
Bill a looker, and Hillary - really??Delete
In his defence, Bill did not categorise B.J.s as 'sex', so he did not lie.ReplyDelete
He made heavy going of it though. His words 'sexual relations', to me, covered just about everything he got up to with the lovely Monica.Delete
'Read my lips...'Delete
Bill had something special with Monica in the Oval office. While he made phone calls to London and Moscow discussing detante Monica knelt at his lap. How cute is that!Delete
The media wind it up as everyone in power, high office,'earns' a lot of money, is generally in the public eye has to be a role model and have to be exposed for their behaviour. Illegality is yet another story and they can be trapped into errors - this is considered to be fair game.ReplyDelete
Build 'em up, knock 'em down.
We love to build them up, but love it even more to knock them down again!Delete
You are absolutely right Cro - it applies to so many politicians I might add.ReplyDelete
You'd be hard pressed to fill a bucket with those who are 100% honest.Delete
Why is Clinton always vilified and President Kennedy looked at as some kind of saint? He had more "ladies" in the White House than anyone!ReplyDelete
Jan, good question. Different times. When Kennedy was president his politics (think Cuba Crisis) were more important than his bedroom. Closed doors and all that which I believe should be respected. We now live in crazy times where the President of the United States can't get so much as a blow job without it making the news.Delete
Anyway, and this is largely missed in the continued memory of a mishap, if Hillary can live with it one would expect the rest of the world might. It's plain cheap. And tells you more about the audience than the players.
He was quite open about it, as was his wife.Delete
The American public always looked upon the Kennedy family as the nearest thing they had to Royalty, so therefore they were considered above reproach.ReplyDelete
Even 'Ted' managed to be above reproach.Delete
Yes it is. However, most of us knew he was lying, but many of us loved him anyway. Many of our leaders cheat on their wives, but it is not any of my business. Franklin D Roosevelt died in the arms (of one) of his lovers, and he is considered one of our greatest Presidents. On the other hand Nixon and Bush probably never strayed, they were too busy lying about other things.ReplyDelete
I think you've just about summed-up US politics of the last 100 years.Delete
He didn't want to hurt his beloved child.ReplyDelete
And in doing so, made things far worse!Delete
Absolutely, Cro. Should have told it like it was, held his head high and said "Yeah, damn right I did that and it was awesome" - and it would all have been forgotten about. Maybe.ReplyDelete
That really is my point. A lesson for all of us.Delete
Wonder where that blue dress is now? Still locked up in an evidence room somewhere? Shudder!ReplyDelete
My sister-in-law met Bill Clinton a couple of years ago. She and a female colleague were amongst those accompanying him back to his plane. She claims that he gave her and her colleague a last look when boarding the plane and hit his head on the doorframe.
Didn't Bill and Hillary once sell swampland?
I would have hoped that the dress was in a museum somewhere. 'Swampland' rings a bell; I must investigate.Delete
Surprised it hasn't turned up on Ebay by nowDelete
There but for the grace of good luck......ReplyDelete
