Monica Lewinsky’s Former Rabbi To Deliver Benediction After Bill Clinton Speaks At DNC
ABC News ^ | Sep 5, 2012 | Michael Falcone

Posted on 09/05/2012 1:23:31 PM PDT by kingattax

This could get awkward. Rabbi David Wolpe of Los Angeles’ Sinai Temple, where Monica Lewinsky and her family were congregation members for decades and where Lewinsky attended religious school, is scheduled to deliver the benediction at the Democratic National Convention tonight — not long after Bill Clinton speaks.

Not only was Wolpe the Lewinsky family’s rabbi, he also sharply condemned President Clinton at the time his sexual relationship with Lewinsky, then a 24-year-old White House intern, was dominating national headlines.

Notice how MONICA was AGED by ABC!! She was NOT 24, she was barely 20 when she was doin’ her mama proud in the Oval Orifice.

We cannnot ever let them win any more elections — they rewrite the history books!

Gee, that looks like the cigar he artculated in the vagina of Monica Lewinski in the Oval Office of The White House. Which makes me think that you could do some perfomance art-like protesting with a large mock cigar and one of those vagina costumes discarded by Code Pink yesterday...

People will be aware of the Rabbi's humiliation...hard to put a finger on - but it feels bad. Monica became a laughing stock of the nation - he was her spiritual leader - a fried of the family... and he gives his stamp of approval? Something creepy about this...

Will he deliver the benediction standing, or kneeling?

These people who support the ‘rats deserve nothing but derision and ridicule.

There is absolutely no reason to respect this rabbi.

I bet Clinton loves it. Any time the media spends talking about Slick Willie and the intern in the blue dress or her Rabbi is time they are not (metaphoricaly) giving 0bama the Lewinsky treatment. It would not surprise me if Bill showed up with a cigar.

“There is absolutely no reason to respect this rabbi.”

Not that I disagree with you, but do you consider the Roman Catholic Biship any different?

The pudgy little handbag designer would be at the convention in person, but for some reason she's switched parties.

Cause Fluke is already busy working on behalf of other important sociopolitical issues of great importance and extreme urgency!

She can stick around after her speech and give CLINTON THE POLICE ACADEMY TREATMENT during his speech.

Will he be asking all at the convention... to get down on their knees?
