Paging "Urban Dictionary"

Apparently Monica Lewinsky has found her mission in life; having been hurt greatly by "cyberbullying" in the 1998 scandal for which she is rightly infamous, she is going to campaign to stop the same.

My prediction is that within a few weeks, "Urban Dictionary" adds a new definition for the term corresponding to the actual reason she suffered, and count on comedy shows to feature sleazy guys telling ladies of dubious character "you can cyberbully me anytime."

Prediction #2; Miss Lewinsky will not learn the real lesson of scandal, which is to apologize for your part in it and move on with life.  Just like her former boss, I guess.

i have been and always will be sympathetic to miss lewinsky.

she was young and naive and didnt have proper family support, was thrust into this limelight, to be further abused and dragged thru the mud by the most powerful man in the world and his henchmen.

everybody else has moved on to connected careers, and she's been the goat.

very sad.

She was abused, but keep in mind that her high school drama teachers says she slept with him and told him she was going to get her "Presidential kneepads." So she knew what she was doing, just not the consequences. Even her "apology" is one of those "I regret" things--not "I was wrong to do this with another woman's husband", but "I regret what happened.

So to put it mildly, she wasn't as naïve as some would have us believe.
