Prostitution is the supreme triumph of capitalism. Worst of all, prostitution reinforces all the old dumb clichTs about women's sexuality that they are not built to enjoy sex and are little more than walking masturbation aids, things to be DONE TO, things so sensually null and void that they have to be paid to indulge in fornication, that women can be had, bought, as often as not sold from one man to another. When the sex war is won prostitutes should be shot as collaborators for their terrible betrayal of all women, for the moral tarring and feathering they give indigenous women who have had the bad luck to live in what they make their humping ground.
Nowhere was the feeling of bewilderment and betrayal stronger than among Clinton's political allies -- from cabinet members to White House aides -- who had put their careers on the line for him. Yet there were no immediate apologies to staff members these would come only two days later, after Clinton read in the New York Times that he had supposedly called in several key staff members and begged their forgiveness. It was hard to imagine how he could do this to us, ... and how he could be so incredibly reckless . . .
