Late-night comics to Monica Lewinsky: We're over it! Have been for a while now. At least that's what one comedian said last night after discussing the essay the former White House intern and infamous presidential mistress wrote for Vanity Fair. The issue is due to hit newsstands May 13 (but will be available online tomorrow), and in it she states that it's "time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress."
Why did she decide to speak now? Well, there's speculation that the Clintons may have been behind this (An attempt to get any Lewinsky chatter out of the way before Hillary Clinton ramps up her presidential bid?), but the official Lewinsky line is that she was upset by the suicide of Rutgers student Tyler Clementi, and hopes her story may help others. Speaking of the Clintons, another comedian talks about Bill Clinton's desperation to get his hands on something, but it's unclear whether that something is the magazine or Lewinsky.
