Really? Caldwell knows these people well, talks to them every day in DC. He's a writer for the Weekly Standard, for god's sake. There are lots of Reps who are *still* pushing the goddam Monica thing. Impeachment hearings are underway, and CNBC and MSNBC are back to all Monica all the time. The theme of Caldwell's NYP column is his exasperation with the Reps' obesession with Monica even as polls show that the public increasingly hates the GOP.
