Lucianne Goldberg is Dead

Hell’s This Way

Throw another log on the fire, Satan, a favorite daughter is coming home:

[N]EW YORK (AP) — Lucianne Goldberg, a literary agent and key figure in the 1998 impeachment of President Bill Clinton over his affair with Monica Lewinsky, has died at the age of 87.

Goldberg’s son, political commentator and author Jonah Goldberg, posted Thursday on Twitter that his mother died Wednesday at her home. He did not give a cause of death.

Lucianne Goldberg, a longtime conservative activist whose agency specialized in right-wing books, gained national prominence for advising her friend Linda Tripp to secretly tape Tripp’s conversations with Lewinsky, a former White House intern who had been involved in a sexual relationship with Clinton.

I never said anything nice about her when she was alive, and I’m NOT about to start now.

There is absolutely nothing nice to say here, she was a net-negative in the culture. Think of the lives she wrecked, the careers she destroyed, the money wasted on witch-hunts, and sweet Jeebus, she foisted the phenomenally untalented hack Doughy Pantload on us, too, who is exhibit A for the evils of legacy hires.

The funeral arrangements involve an armpit fart orchestra performing the William Tell Overture, an open sewer, a shove, and a match. No expenses spared.

    As to her, I’m saying nothing. Well, except I remember an old toon I can’t ever unsee, of Lucianne Goldberg coming out from under a desk easily understood to be LBJ’s, if I recall totally correctly.

  3. in Bazaar of Bad Dreams, Stephen King has a short story where a writer discovers that if he writes a vicious, vituperative and acidic (kind of joking) obit about a public person who is still alive, upon publication that person dies. This post reminds me of that.

    Goldberg, Linda Tripp, and Kenneth Starr all crammed together in a tiny room in the 9th Circle of Hell, listening to a scratchy recording of Afternoon Delight for all eternity.

    Well here’s hoping the loss of the enfant terrible of the Manhattan Upper East Side Elderly Center gives the disgruntled members some peace and less strife.
