Passage Transcript

well i think, that the, impeachment, trial should come, to an end, soon. because, for one reason there is no chance of, nailing, President Clinton, with_ a sense, with a, uh... a guilty verdict from the, United States Senate. um, i feel that he should be made to pay some money, and do, some kind of, work. to um show that he is paying a price for his, weakness. um, this week_ this week there is a cover of the New Yorker magazine, of a woman who has, the exact coloring and shape of Mona Lisa. except that her face is the face of Monica Lewinski. and that's so funny. the, con- congruence between Mona Lisa and Monica. i think, people, are laughing at us, it is not paranoid. it's funny in a way. it's really scary that the, um, media have no, compunctions any more t- about things like this with respect to, uh, people like_ public people, like the president. so... but, um, i'm glad my T-V went out last week. i'm not... spending time with that instead of reading something nice. which has nothing to do with this, scandal. but it's nice to see_ i believe that he will not be_ not have to lose his job. it's, it's true that he has... hm, you would say committed sins. but, because the country needs him, and he has so many good qualities. he should be made to pay some kind of thing to_ to us, to make himself feel, that he has done the right thing. for the country to let go, and go onto the next thing. which largely i think is just_ the next thing is arguing with the Republicans. who don't seem to have the right idea, they wanna nail him in the most humiliating way possible. but he has a very strong, attitude i think, given his, state of the union speech a few weeks ago. he didn't allude one moment to the fact that he had been impeached by the House of Representatives. in a way though, he's a sleazy character, who's perhaps_ he's_ he's lacking in character in some respects. i dunno what his wife thinks. i'll bet the marriage doesn't last after he leaves office.
