In Which the Associated Press Refocuses Our Attention on What Really Matters

I'm sorry, what was the point of this, again?
Hillary Rodham Clinton was at home in the White House on a half-dozen days when her husband had sexual encounters there with intern Monica Lewinsky, according to Sen. Clinton's schedule, released Wednesday among 11,000 pages of papers from her years as first lady.

Wow. She was home when Bill was getting blown. Fucking bombshell of a revelation, that. Need we remind the breathless AP that "being home" in the White House isn't exactly the same as "being home" in an 800 square-foot duplex with paper-thin walls? Hillary's complete 8-year datebook has been released, which is the source of this amazing revelation. Maybe that in itself is newsworthy, but why the "Hillary Home During Trysts" scandal-sheet headline? Oh, right. :

It's unlikely she would be surprised at this late date to learn that the president was cheating on her while she was at home in the White House.

But the release of the documents reminds voters anew about Bill Clinton's affair and the impeachment proceedings that brought Washington to a halt for a year.

Thanks, Associated Press! Lord knows the voters have been so distracted by the endless detailed discussions amongst the candidates of their domestic economic policy plans, and plans for solving the infrastructure crisis, and plans to deal with Iraq, and environmental policies to counter global warming, and international economic policies to address the rise of the East and the tanking of the dollar, that it feels like it's been years since anyone has bothered to cast Bill Clinton in a negative light, much less mention Monica Lewinsky. Thank you for correcting this absolutely unacceptable situation and getting the campaign dialogue squarely back where it needs to be, that being Bill Clinton's pants.
