let's chat about genitals. New York City Mayor Rudy
Giuliani's wife Donna Hanover planned to star in The
Vagina Monologues. Then the mayor developed prostate
cancer, which isn't exactly an ailment of the foot.
Next, Giuliani announced he had "a special friend"
whom he would lean on during these genitally trying
times and jettisoned his marriage via press conferences.
Then, consoled by his new lover, Giuliani also jettisoned
the New York senate race against Hillary Rodham Clinton,
handing it over to Long Island Representative Rick Lazio.
Bill Clinton's parts, well, we just know too much about
that subject. Only Hillary has kept her body private,
unless you count that paparazzi-snapped, telescope-lens
photograph of her and Bill slow-dancing on a beach in
their bathing suits, shortly before she learned that
he hadn't been "counseling" Monica. Unfortunately,
this fleshy backdrop has been a distraction from the
historicity of Hillary Clinton's bid for the Senate.
