"Lewinsky allegedly freaked out after Clinton’s affair with VP’s daughter"

"Lewinsky allegedly freaked out after Clinton’s affair with VP’s daughter"

So ... the woman cheatin' with Bill Clinton was surprised that he was a cheater.

As Graham Greene once noted, our baseless optimism is so much more appalling than our despair.

  1. If I were the NY Post's editor I'd have modified this headline to clarify that the VP in question was Walter Mondale's and not one of Gore's daughters, which a person reading the headline in isolation. This would be extremely freakish since two of them would still have been in freakin' high school at the time of the Lewinsky Affair.

    Of course, this is probably why I'm not a clickbait writer.

  2. "VP's daughter in question"

    and

    "in isolation would think."

    My tendency to stop and change the grammatical structure of a sentence midway through writing and forget I'm doing so may also explain why I am not a newspaper editor.
