An Important Date

 Today, July 23, is the birthday of a very, very special person. Most of you first heard about this person after they embarrassed President Clinton in the mid-1990s; but some of you may have spotted their brilliance when they were young and struggling in California, virtually unknown to the rest of the world. Because of some rash acts in their past, many have judged this person unfavorably - and, some may argue, unfairly. But no matter what the detractors say, you simply cannot deny this person's impact on American humor, government, pop culture, and - yes - the national spirit.

With all that said...happy birthday, Monica Lewinsky!



Ms. Lewinsky turns 36 today. There are other celebrity birthdays today, too, but none of any real importance.

Oh, I heard it was the natal day of some former "shock jock" who was funny a long time ago, but is now basically "phoning it in" and needs to be left over at the dog track with a note pinned to his cowboy hat.

But I can't remember who that was.

69 - if he were smart he'd make some kind of joke about how he and his wife won't be doing it like that because he might break his hip.

Meh :\

Thanks , CG, for this blog. And all the contributors!

I wonder if Imus even realizes that he has become Imus-LITE!

Thanks, Al! :-)

I'll be honest: as a fan, I'll be severely disappointed in the crew if no one had the foresight to made a "69" joke this morning. :-)

CG,

We did hear that Fred Imus is hanging out at the Dead Dick Ranch, and Wyatt Imus suggested that Imus console himself with being able to hang out with his brother SMILE.

It was fun to hear Bill Clinton acknowledging her birthday today.

CG said...

Yes...that was very exciting. :-)

So does he now read at a 70 year-old level?

CG,

"Bubba" wanted me to pass along his deepest thanks for the inspiration you provided for his "essay" the other day. He obviously got the idea from your birthday tribute post. He also said something about being forever in your debt. Wanted to know if you wanted to get some 'pizza'.

Beware...

;)

Robio, tell Bubba that I'm very honored to have inspired a President. I'll also try to avoid getting 'pizza' with him. :-)
