“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Monica resurfaces to a reception that's about what you'd expect

Monica Lewinsky has resurfaced on Twitter and last night at some Forbes Magazine event where she blamed Matt Drudge, Ken Starr, Linda Tripp, Page Six, and others for how miserable and ruined her life has been since the Clinton affair.

The one person she didn't blame was herself for having an affair with a married man with the highest profile in the whole world. All Matt Drudge did was break a huge news story.

I actually feel sorry for her, or I did. Thousands, if not tens of thousands, of young 20-something girls have affairs with their powerful, married bosses and nobody cares except the guy's wife, his kids, and the mincing HR goon down the hall. Objectively, it's really unfair that this is all she'll ever be remembered for, but then she keeps bringing it up and has written a book about it to try to make a living. Still, the worst yesterday came from who I thought was a professional journalist, FoxNews media reporter Howard Kurtz, who welcomed Lewinsky to Twitter with a cigar joke. Really Howard?

Monica was 24 when she happily let Clinton seduce her, not exactly an impressionable country girl in the big bad city, and she made her own decisions which turned out to be colossal mistakes, but she doesn't deserve to be mistreated in perpetuity by dirty old men like Howard Kurtz,....she was mistreated by a dirty old man once already.

Then there's the campaign button with a picture of Ms. Lewinsky and the text, "I'm voting Republican. The Democrats left a bad taste in my mouth."

The poor girl can't get no respect. (My apologies to Rodney Dangerfield.)

Heh heh, nobody can say she didn't bring it on herself. I guess with this book and her speaking engagements where she talks about nothing but that, this is how she's accepted that she can make a lot of money.

The timing of this "release" is nothing more than clearing the way for Hillary. One by one the Hillary is removing would-be obstacles.
