John F. Asked in William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet She is not playing by the book; she worries that Romeo might misunderstand this but at the same time she does not want him to play by the book either. The standard procedure is for the male to protest loud and long that he loves, supported by all the holy vows of heaven, and the female is to turn a disdainful shoulder and put him off. Juliet is not playing cool (as Rosaline did) and she does not want Romeo to play the lover (as he did with Rosaline) with her. a b "My Short, Sorry Career as a Spy". Retrieved October 23, 2016.

John Oliver interviewed Monica Lewinsky during a segment about public shaming on.They then spoke about social media.

John Oliver interviewed Monica Lewinsky during a segment about public shaming on Sunday's episode of Last Week Tonight. The HBO host kicked off the conversation by asking Lewinsky if bullying has worsened over the years. Lewinsky said that social media could have had both negative and positive effects if it had been around during the scandal. If that’s what he means by civility, may I offer my new book: Oh the Places You Can Go F-- Yourself, Jay Leno," Oliver responded.

Jove Laughs, They Say: Lewinsky as Text offers an extremely unorthodox approach to the very public and very lengthy Clinton-Lewinsky scandal. The author argues that analysis of the affair was done by experts in specific and, at times, completely unrelated fields. As a result of this ineffectual approach the national conversation was reduced to an unintelligible mess. Jove Laughs recommends viewing the scandal through the lens of literary criticism and literary theory, rather than the traditional political or legal perspective. The work compares the 'Talking Points,' the three page single-spaced set documents that opponents of the Clinton administration held out to be evidence of an organized conspiracy to obstruct justice, to the historical 'Casket Letters' which were used in a similar manner to incriminate Mary, Queen of Scots.
  • To research his book, the author painstakingly pored over every available transcript and parsed every sentence of the entire unabridged Starr report, which was ultimately the basis for President Clinton's impeachment. The author cleverly compares President Clinton's infamous and artful word usage -- such as with "is" and "alone" -- with Starr's equally clever and curious interpretations of the Independent Counsel's witness testimony.
    The author also explores the so-called "talking points," the document allegedly composed by Clinton operatives to serve as a script for harmonizing the testimony of potential grand-jury witnesses, and believed by Starr (and others) to be proof of the president's attempt to obstruct justice. Dr. Gillis juxtaposes the talking points with the "Casket Letters," the documents many historians believe to be forgeries, which allegedly incriminated Mary, Queen of Scots, in the murder of her second husband.
    If you think Ken Starr, Linda Tripp, Henry Hyde, and the Republican managers were the good guys during the impeachment and Senate trial of Bill Clinton, then this book may not be for you. If you think they are the avatars of evil, this book will be right up your alley. But those who are dispassionate and non-partisan will most appreciate the book for its unique perspective and analysis.

  • First off, let it be known that YMHS did not plunk down 50 bucks for this stunning work. Instead it was perused stealthily over the shoulder of a more affluent acquaintance. That said, it is a fine piece of writing, albeit misnomered as nonfiction, and worth the cost both for laughs, non-jovian of course, and for the proof that Jack Gillis is a loyal political friend and an apologist nonpareil.
    The goodly Doctor Gillis has a keen eye, a keener wit, and the keenest sense of the absurd. His goal of abstracting L'Affaire Monica from the pages of history and tossing it into the realm of letters is exquisite and, of course, politically obfuscatory. Still, it makes for excellent reading.
    The "casket" tapes make an interesting dalliance in that Linda Tripp becomes the Bothwell. Does the goodly Doctor wish the same fate for Ms. Tripp? And what then for Judge Starr? The Scaife/Mellon Tower?
    But the true villains of the book are the dastardly House Republicans, which makes for great fun, and proof positive the Jack Gillis is, to say the least, a partisan weaver of tall tales and torturous tautology. Nevertheless, this reader is saving his pennies that he might one day own this fine work that he might periodically enjoy the prose, if not the logic.
