    You expected something else from this particular editorial cartoonist?

    Excerpted from her Vanity Fair article:
    "When Tyler Clementi, the 18-year-old Rutgers freshman who was secretly streamed via Webcam kissing another man, committed suicide in September 2010, Lewinsky writes, she was brought to tears, but her mother was especially distraught: “She was reliving 1998, when she wouldn’t let me out of her sight. She was replaying those weeks when she stayed by my bed, night after night, because I, too, was suicidal. The shame, the scorn, and the fear that had been thrown at her daughter left her afraid that I would take my own life—a fear that I would be literally humiliated to death.” Lewinsky clarifies that she has never actually attempted suicide, but had strong suicidal temptations several times during the investigations and during one or two periods after.

    Lewinsky writes that following Clementi’s tragedy “my own suffering took on a different meaning. Perhaps by sharing my story, I reasoned, I might be able to help others in their darkest moments of humiliation. The question became: How do I find and give a purpose to my past?” She also says that, when news of her affair with Clinton broke in 1998, not only was she arguably the most humiliated person in the world, but, “thanks to the Drudge Report, I was also possibly the first person whose global humiliation was driven by the Internet.” Her current goal, she says, “is to get involved with efforts on behalf of victims of online humiliation and harassment and to start speaking on this topic in public forums.”

    “No there’s a whole bunch of scared repubbies that can’t run against her…”

    And here I thought it was because there was a rumor about a book.

    Monica Lewinsky was a consenting adult who had an affair with another consenting adult. Politicians on both sides of the fence have affairs all the time and their supporters are perfectly happy to overlook it. Mark Sanford is a prime example of that. Ms Lewinsky had the bad fortune to have an affair with a powerful man who had powerful enemies. Those enemies had absolutely no issue with using (and abusing) her for political advantage without any regard to her.

    Whatever you may feel about her then morality for having an affair with a married man, what can you say about the morality of the politicians who publicly humiliated her and made her life a living hell for political gain?

    “…what can you say about the morality of the politicians who publicly humiliated her and made her life a living hell for political gain?”

    Disgusting, loathsome, repugnant, vile, and vulgar come to mind. I’m sure there are more synonyms that would apply.

    Nobody cares. Quit talking about her, she will go away.

    No. I think it was an Anti-Anti-Christian film that brought Monica out!

    Seems to me good reasons to never to vote for a republican every again. That and many other things convinced me of that years ago.
