"Top White House aides were shocked to learn in 1997 that Clinton was having sex with Lewinsky because she had been constantly flirting with..."

... George Stephanopoulos.

My guess is that the number of men who had some form of power she didn't flirt with would be easier to count.

Scott M said...

So what we can glean from this is that her tastes in men (pun intended) ran from cherubic behind-the-scene types to chunky, southern, leches?

I'm betting that, had she been about 100 lbs thinner, she'd have ended up on the pole.

Scott M said...

Stripper pole, that is. We all know she did end up on the First Pole, or the FPOTUS

Too bad Bill didn't have an aide like George who looked after his best interests.

Eeewwwwwww!

I did not think I could lose more respect for Monica Lewinski!

George always struck me as a bit sexless. Doesn't understand how this flirting business works.

It's also worth nothing that the Great Blowjob Impeachment Hearings occurred during a lame duck session.

Bear that in mind as Republicans and their bleating herds wail about how wrong it is to have lame duck sessions.

In November 1998, the Democrats picked up seats in the Congress. (The previous mid-term election, in 1994, had been a major debacle for Clinton's Democratic Party, though the Democrats gained 8 House seats in November 1996.)

While the Republicans still maintained majority control of the United States House of Representatives after the 1998 midterm elections, they would also lose a large number of seats to the Democrats in this election as well.[10] Shortly after the mid-term elections, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Newt Gingrich, who was one of the people leading the impeachment proceedings against Clinton,[11] announced he would resign from Congress as soon as he was able to find somebody to fill his vacant seat;[10] Gingrich fulfilled this pledge and officially resigned from Congress on January 25, 1999.

Completely agree with this.

I think you mean the Great Purjury Impeachment, but neither here nor there. As far as the lame duck thing is concerned, I assume you would agree that two wrongs don't make a right, correct?

AlphaLiberal said...

No. I don't, Scott M. I don't think it's wrong for Congress to pass legislation in a lame duck session.

They are the Congress until the next Congress is sworn in.

Also, conservatives demand the voters' preference, as shown in November 2008, be ignored. You guys have not a leg to stand on.

I consider it interesting that they are terming it "sex."

Of course i have a simple definition of "cheating" if not sex. Cheating is doing anything with a woman you wouldn't do in front of your wife.

Scott M said...

Agreed. Now that we have that out of the way...what do you do for a living, AL?

AlphaSockPuppet is a well-paid, time-serving functionary in some labor union.

After Travelgate, they were about as shocked as Inspecteur Reynaud that there was gambling at Rick's.

Alpha doesn't get the idea that Willie had/has no taste in women and that, for guys like Steffi, power is the big whore. Girls he can find anywhere.

Because that's when the court verdict was rendered.

AllenS said...

So, what are you wearing, Alpha, a blue dress?

Fen said...

Yes Alpha, we know you think sexual discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, perjury, subornation of perjury and obstruction of justice are... "just about sex, MoveOn.org"

And that POTUS is immune from prosecution from Nov-Jan every 2 years...

Sadly, you're just another typical Democrat. Its no wonder that you guys feel a need to constantly bleat about how "smart" you are.

AlphaLiberal said...

Fen, Lewinsky was a willing participant as shown by her statement "wanna see my thong?"

By all means back up your claim that was forced into giving Clinton head against her will. You guys published all the salacious details of the tryst, so there's plenty of public record available.

You can dress up the witch hunt all you want but it was simply about destroying a Democratic Presidency. Period.

(And was it sexual harassment when Newt Gingrich was schtupping his staffer?)

If I was President, I could have resisted her advances, and I have virtually no self-discipline.

Would Hilary be stronger or weaker politically now if it never happened.

Would she be stronger or weaker if she had divorced him over it?

Scott M said...

Watching from the sidelines, as I was back then, it seemed more like Clinton was hell-bent on self-destruction, actually. In truth, this was never about sex. It was about lying under oath. I'll not rehash all of this again as it's done and gone. What irks me me though is your implication that somehow Democrats would have just let it slide if a Republican president were to act in the same way. The banshee wail from the left would wake the dead.

Fen said...

Alpha: Lewinsky was a willing participant as shown by her statement "wanna see my thong?"

Yes. I'm talking about all the other women in the White House who didn't get promotions or interviews with the UN and Revlon because they wouldn't suck Clinton's dick.

By all means back up your claim that was forced into giving Clinton head against her will.

I'm talking about Kathlenn Wiley. Groped while interviewing for a job.

You guys published all the salacious details of the tryst

Salacious? The report was as dry and technical as a rape report at your local ER. If you find that "salacious" then you've got bigger problems than being a two-bit partisan hack.

You can dress up the witch hunt all you want but it was simply about destroying a Democratic Presidency.

Nope. It was a result of discovery in the Paula Jones sexual discrimination suit. As plantiff, and under 1994 Crime Bill sections pushed by NOW and signed by Clinton, Jones had a right to "any information that establishes a pattern of predatory sexual abuse in the workplace on the part of the defendant".

Fen said...

Wait for it, the Libtard is going to walk right into it...

former law student said...

At least George was only half-again her age instead of twice.

But somehow the older I get, the idea that a young woman can be interested in older men just doesn't seem so repellent any more.

Alpha doesn't get concepts like perjury and suborning a witness as they apply to high crimes and misdemeanors.

I'd ask the Professor to 'splain him, but he'd only get nasty.

Fen said...

Whats even funnier is that Alpha defends his position by leaning on the authority of an affidavit.
