      It is unfortunate that she used the term "conspiracy" because really it was simply a political strategy.  

      One that was so obviously extreme and insane when it resulted in an impeachment of a President for getting a blow job from someone other than his wife - which was fairly standard operating procedure for many, many Congress Members on both sides of the aisle at the time - and which still isn't rare or uncommon today in DC.
