Let's not forget how Monica Lewinsky was also marked for life. Not even after she went on to earn a MSW from the London School of Economics, no one she sought a job from would touch her with a ten-foot pole.
Last time anyone checked, she lives in LA and has very few friends. No telling if she ever got a job yet...Posted by newton at March 11, 2012 1:55 PM
There might been a dignified way to proclaim to the world the need for $1,000 a year's worth of contraceptives, but having a last name like "Fluke" ain't it.Posted by Mike James at March 11, 2012 2:29 PM

I was in my 20s when the feminist movement first started and have watched it transform itself into a movement that now leads women to degrade and humiliate themselves publicly. What is interesting and sad is that youngish women don't see themselves as degrading themselves when they act like Fluke or support her. I fear we will see many middle-aged female suicides in the future when these women grow up and finally realize what they have done to themselves.Posted by Gloria at March 11, 2012 3:47 PM
...she made herself into the kind of “damaged goods” parents once used to warn their daughters against becoming. The rich irony is that she doesn’t even know it yet. But she will. She will.

Good read! I wanted to pass along my humble contributions to this sordid mess:
My guess is that she is getting a (very) small taste of what Sarah Palin has gone through. The difference is that Ms. Palin has never seen herself as a victim....Posted by Teresa in Fort Worth at March 11, 2012 5:03 PM
Teresa, I love it when you begin with "Sandra Fluke’s parents must be so proud."
I wanted to say that but I couldn't work it in.Posted by vanderleun at March 11, 2012 5:47 PM
Is Monica Lewinsky still a spinster? Is Sandra most likely doomed to remain one? Sweet karma.Posted by Grizzly at March 11, 2012 8:50 PM
She will be surprised when she achieves her not-really goal to have taxpayers subsidize her libidinous activities. John Taxpayer will be surprised, not really, to be find himself double-tapped by paying for her time in some future public sector patronage appointment to screw with his life.Posted by at March 11, 2012 9:33 PM
I recently read on a baseball site about a girl at Duke University ($40,000 per annum) who wrote her thesis about her experience having sex with several athletes at the school in all the lurid details. I'm thinking what's her major, skankology?
There are girls in my town getting their thesis in that subject for $10 and a crack rock.
She might actually think that this would be an improvement to her social life. She's wrong, of course, but that never stopped anyone before.

Ummm, as much as I'd LOVE to agree with your analysis, I simply can't. Where do you live? If you live in the major cosmopolitan cities where most people are diehard liberals, you would know that people who favor your analysis are FEW AND FAR BETWEEN. Her reputation is rock solid anywhere she cares to be. Everywhere she travels in this particular world, she will be hailed as a heroine, a champion for women's rights. She will get the job she always wanted and because of her ‘exalted’ deeds, enjoy job stability for life. Do you think she was looking to work at the Heritage Foundation post graduation, for the Republican Party? Do you think she cares what you think? Do you think your derision affects her in the least? I wish it did but it doesn’t. She is not Monica Lewinsky or Hilary--while her campaign does rest on a sort of victimhood, she is actually the warrior, the alpha in this situation, not the victim who overcomes adversity. Hilary and Monica never meant to gain fame through their humiliation, they never sought to change policy or hearts or minds. They never intended their private shame to go public or political. If they tried to make the best of it, good for them I guess. Who should judge a woman for standing by her husband--she took vows did she not??? It always seemed to me that Hilary and Bill had some sort of friendship. Most people with successful marriages know that friendship provides a rock solid foundation. However, I don't know this any more than I know whether she stayed with Bill for her personal ambitions. What I do know is that she is an incredibly educated and intelligent woman. Whether I agree with her politics or not, her talents should not be undermined. That would be pathetic, stupid, and petty. Lemme tell ya she wasn’t gonna be working at the local Dollar General or Red Lobster, with or without Bill. Hasn’t anyone heard that smart, talented people are attracted to each other. Power couple, anyone? Jealousy doesn't win elections and it certainly doesn't make Hilary Clinton any less capable in her own right. Would you have been happier if she had married Bobby Brown or a blue collar guy? Shame on her for having preferences and savvy. I'm sure no parent in America wants their daughter to grow up to be First Lady...
Love the poster by the way.
