The Big Bang

This piece concerns three men:

John Kennedy, Bill Clinton and Eliot Spitzer, Unknown-2 the latter, the former Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo’s disgraced predecessor, who in 2008, stepped down due to his inappropriate sexual conduct rivaling the Marquis de Sade’s.

We’ll get back to him.

Stepping up to the plate, Unknown-1William Jefferson Clinton in 1998, caught literally with his pants down with a young intern a mere seven years younger than his daughter.

Wild Bill HANDCOCK, who didn’t feel oral sex was sex, lying through his moans while on the phone discussing state secrets, loves to say JFK was his hero.

Unknown-1 A photo of him in 1963, meeting JFK at the White House, the role model he appeared to be.

Kennedy’s flagrant in flagrante delicto, Latin for, in blazing offense, is now common knowledge, but not in 1963.

Right before Dallas, a reporter called Bobby at the State Department, saying, they couldn’t cover for his brother’s behavior much longer. J. Edgar Hoover, the head of the FBI, had compiled quite a file he planned making public.

Bobby then went to his father who said, “Who cares how many times Jack gets laid. Good! He should get laid more.”Unknown-1

It stayed under wraps longer than it would have if JFK had lived to serve his second term, Hoover was determined to undermine.

Spitzer too was a JFK fan, sometimes screwing three call girls in one day at a hotel, three blocks from his house, so my theory is, they thought banging women over lunch was perfectly acceptable.

You want to feel sorry for their wives, and the only oneΒ  deserving is Silda Spitzer, divorcing her Marquis in 2014 she stoically stayed with throughout the scandal for the sake of her three daughters.

But Jackie covered up Jack’s indiscretions creating the myth of Camelot. images-3

‘Don’t let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief moment that was known as Camelot.’

Yeah Yeah. King Arthur he wasn’t, but boy could she spin a tale, since she knew all about his bad behavior.

As for Hillary,Β  images-2 Bubba’s behavior too was no surprise, and like Mrs. Kennedy and many other wives who turn the other way as they buy another dress, as long as they weren’t publicly embarrassed said, have a good time in JFK’s White House pool, that by the time the Clintons arrived, had been turned into the press room, by DICK Nixon.

As for me, I like the connection, putting these three flawed men together.

How history does repeat itself, for better…

or for worse.Β  images-2

    Power, whether political, sports, entertainment, etc., draws groupies like moths to a flame. I think many of the powerhouses start out honorably. After they become surrounded by toadies telling them they are above us commoners and deserve whatever they desire, they begin to believe it. Especially when they see the majority of their peers doing the same.
    There are plenty of women who abused their power as well, (think Joan Crawford), though men are usually in the limelight since they tend to rise to the top so much more often.
    I tend to judge a political leader more by his politics and results. Right or wrong, I gloss over his/her personal indiscretions as long as they are kept private, are mutually consensual, are not illegal, and don’t endanger the country or any person. Alas, this is seldom the case.

    Power politics and infidelity seem to go hand in hand (or gland in gland). Or at least, that’s true for the blokes: I can’t imagine Thatcher, Bhutto, Meier, or Gandhi shagging their interns. Weird really. It’s a highly (maybe the most) competitive environment. So you don’t get to the top without intelligence, judgement, funds and a lot of friends. Why would you risk all that?

    I think I’d like to return to the days when we didn’t know every personality flaw and act of misbehavior by our politicians and celebrities. The constant disclosure of everything is driving good people away from politics and leadership roles — nobody is perfect, everybody is human, and unless their flaws and misbehavior are particularly deviant or harmful to others, why should we care. JFK’s flings were with knowing, consenting adults, as far as we know. I really think we need to re-consider how much we really need or want to know about the quirks and habits of our elected officials.

    • Gee Midget, sounds like my recap/expose may have offended you. Was not my aim. For me it’s lore, and all lore fascinates me, even if it’s unseemly.

        No, no, no. Didn’t offend me at all. It’s history and history is what it is. Just commenting on how we now know everything about everybody and I think that does more harm than good.

      • I totally agree. It’s like seeing everybody incessantly naked. Muckraking, to quote Teddy Roosevelt, has never been more sinister.
        We are all flawed, yet JFK’s inaugural address can still rock the house, and I’m told by a woman that Bill Clinton is the most charming person she’s ever met. And I’m sorry to say. I don’t really have anything generous to say about Spitzer, even in general. Clinton is also the highest paid person on the lecture circuit so clearly, we’ve gotten over his Oval indiscretion. I eat history for breakfast, as you know, and love sharing it.

  5. I for one have always liked the idea of banging women in a hotel. Never a few minutes from home, never while committed, and never for payment. I always had a problem with the idea of a chief executive using obvious power ploys to bed star-struck damsels (I like that word. Sounds so helpless) Clinton with a 22-year-old intern was the lowest of the low. If I had been her father I would have wanted to horsewhip him for not having the decency to protect someone away from home who obviously had maturity issues. I liked your discussion. Good one, Susannah.

  6. It seems to be a thing with powerful men, although honestly it might just be powerful people since most politicians are men. I do always feel bad for their wives though for the double injury of the heartache and humiliation.

    Three call girls in ONE day? Man, I really must have zero drive in that department because I am exhausted just thinking about it! And from what I remember, when Spitzer’s term ended early, one of his friends told him it was alright, that it happens to everybody.

    As for the Kennedys, they knew how to handle this stuff best of all. Then again, it was a different time. I can’t imagine these shenanigans wouldn’t be uncovered by TMZ in five minutes nowadays. . .

    It amazes me how these men basically got away with this, in the grand scheme of things while the poor women are treated like shit.
    You know I love your historical tidbits – of all genres!

  9. Today we are so desensitized by the inappropriate behaviors of men in power that getting a blow job in the oval office seems minimal. Honestly, it could happen in the rose garden, broadcasted across the land, and somehow it would be twisted to convince us we didn’t see it. I miss the days of speculation.
