Do you find yourself unable to stop singing, "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" Probably not. Are you wondering where Gennifer Flowers has gone? Same answer, right? Yet, Flowers, who reportedly had a 12-year affair with Bill Clinton, explains her new web site with Paula Jones, briefly in the public eye when she filed a sexual harassment suit against the former president, with the rationale, "It's a way we can get our story out there in our own words, without someone making their own interpretations or corrections." These women can relax. Interest in them waned years ago, even before we were diverted by the impact of terrorist attacks, the war, the price of gas and Anna Nicole Smith.
Flowers and Jones are hoping to get $1.99 each time they're hit on (the very thing they're known for) by those curious to see videos revealing what they have to say about the former president, his wife and "other matters". Will people pay when they can watch a divorced woman rant pro bono about her husband on You Tube? Might they not opt to spend what little money we all have left renting from Netflix?
If politics make for strange bedfellows, here's a case of strange bedfellows making for weird politics. If there's anything to speculate about, it's only whether the timing was linked to Hillary having pulled out of the race and if the profits will go towards creating an ex-rated or x-rated room adjacent to the Clinton Library.
Once again, we see there's no shortage of shabbiness, shamelessness, greed and the desperate desire to remain in the public eye. A grateful high five to Monica Lewinsky for not participating in the web site as well as for not writing a book!
