Lewinsky Gets Her Masters

Libby Copeland is the person that is dumb but smart. She is dumbfounded to learn that Monica Lewinsky has received a master's degree in Social Psychology from the London School of Economics. Lewinsky's thesis was "In Search of the Impartial Juror: An Exploration of the Third Person Effect and Pre-Trial Publicity."

There are moments that make you question your fundamental assumptions about the world. One of them took place a few days ago, when news emerged that Monica Lewinsky had just graduated from the London School of Economics.

She did not!!

Lewinsky, 33, is known more for her audacious coquetry than for her intellectual heft, and the notion of her earning a master of science degree in social psychology at the prestigious London university is jarring, akin to finding a rip in the time-space continuum, or discovering that Kim Jong Il is a natural blond.

What a crock of bullshit!! Did Ms. Copeland watch Lewinsky's deposition before the House Manager's torquemadic inquisition? Doesn't she remember how Ms. Lewinsky ran loops around the slow-witted Rep. Bryant? If anyone came away from l'affair Lewinsky thinking Monica was dumb, then they are themselves dumb.

This is just one more example of how women are treated with a double standard. For Ms. Copeland it is simply unthinkable that a woman could be simultaneously smart and sexually attracted to the most powerful man in the world. I'm beginning to wonder whether it is possible to be simultaneously smart and write for the Washington Post.

This is bullshit. Lewinsky is a graduate of Reed Lewis and Clark College, which is a well regarded school, and worked for the Pentagon. Lewinsky may have poor choice in men, but stupid , she isn't. This idea that she had to be a bimbo was prepretrated by the media. Not reality.

Btw, Jen also went to LSE.
