Monica Lewinsky Sucks Headline: Deserved or Distasteful?

by at .

Monica Lewinsky is featured in the latest issue of Vanity Fair.

The former White House intern - who shot to infamy in 1998 for having an affair with President Bill Clinton that included a cigar being placed in her vagina - takes responsibility for the "consensual" relationship in an essay for the magazine.

She also says she deeply regrets the dalliance and opens up about having suicidal thoughts not long after the scandal went public.

This is how The New York Post reacted to Lewinsky re-entering the news in such fashion:

Monica Lewinsky New York Post Headline

Referring to her Vanity Fair piece as “whiny,” the newspaper mocks Lewinsky for claiming her “global humiliation” made her into a shame-filled recluse.

It also makes fun of Lewinsky for saying her life "sucks" and call us crazy... but we somehow think editors were going for a double entendre by choosing that specific word.

Should the Post have been more sympathetic to someone saying they thought about suicide?

Or did Lewinsky open herself up to any and all kinds of reaction when she chose to give oral sex to the President of the United States?
