Lewinsky wanna-be's

This morning I came across the New York Daily News, to find a a fairly pretty blue-eyed blonde with folded arms, bearing her pinkish skin on the cover. Below, a title read, "Sex, Power, and D.C. Interns After Monica." I was intrigued. It was only last summer that I, too, was a D.C. intern.

Abbie Finfrock is a 20-year-old D.C. intern who claims she is down with the routine intern experience in D.C., but I have to say she couldn't be any more far off. She writes about how hard it is to survive as an intern in D.C., a poor woe-is-me cry out to all the other ditzy little blondes running around town in their new j-crew power suits and BCBG pumps, supposedly getting hit on left and right by political figures.

Finfrock even goes as far to compare D.C. interns to Monica Lewinsky: "Yet, seven years on, each new crop of eager and wide-eyed interns arrives like fresh prey for the city's political predators. Far from dampening the instincts of the political classes, the Lewinsky scandal appears to have egged them on. Monica has given us a bad reputation."

Wait, what?

The Lewinsky scandal egged on future interns or Monica has given us a bad reputation? Which is it, Miss Finfrock?

She claims that every intern she has talked to has had a bad experience with an older "grandpa-like" power figure in D.C. coming onto them. Well, she didn't talk to me, or the thousands of other interns who come to D.C. to seek professionalism and an educated learning experience, not scandal.

She adds that she spoke with an intern who claimed, "I mean, who wouldn't want to sleep with the President?"

Finfrock, you can pack your bags and take all your slutty college friends back to where you came from. Coming from the most powerful city in the world with the most powerful people, it'd be funny to wonder if you or your ditzy friends will even be offered a job here in the future.

I wouldn't count on it. After all, we certainly don't want any more Monica Lewinskys running around.

Clearly your reading comprehension skills need some work. She is saying the instincts of the predatory politcos hasn't been dampen because Monica has given interns a bad name--ie they are easy so have at it boys. There is no contradiction there.

Perhaps you should take your own advice and go back from whence you came.
