Smacking lips across the blogosphere

Times Staff Writer

Monica Lewinsky hasn't been in the news since, oh, the last decade. But bloggers right and left couldn't help themselves when Bill Clinton's foundation posted this job announcement:

If you are an undergraduate, graduate or professional student or a recent graduate with your own strong interest in crucial issues of our day, the Clinton Foundation Intern Program offers a unique opportunity for growth, learning and meaningful service. We are looking for people who are dependable, enthusiastic, professional, and intelligent.

The foundation isn't looking for one, but 25 of these special people -- all for the New York office. Successful applicants get "hands-on experience" and the responsibility of working "directly with staff, volunteers and Foundation stakeholders."

Imagine, if you will, the sound of smacking lips across the blogosphere:

E.L. Frederick: I wonder if you have to supply your own blue dress.

Mike Williams: The ad should also probably add…Good oratory skills and quick access to a drycleaner are considered a plus.

Marko: There will be tens of thousands of young women lined up for that job. He's still the most popular president since … Kennedy?

Word up.

Seriously though, the Clinton Foundation is looking for interns, and at the same time just begging to get teased on late night TV.
