April Witt attempts a sympathetic portrayal of Jessica Cutler -- a.k.a., Washingtonienne -- in the Washington Post Sunday Magazine and halfway succeeds. In the story, Cutler comes across as much less calculating than much of the press coverage of her earlier in the summer. She's also sounds more self-deprecating than in her previous interviews.
On the other hand, she also appears to be aimless, immature, and confident that her looks would open doors for her despite a checkered resume (and, to be fair, she was correct about this). Like others before her, she also foolishly believed that her blog would never be read beyond her circle of friends.
Read the whole thing. This part is particularly interesting:
Looks like Miss Cutler has been reading the blog.
Interestingly enough, a later contributer to the chat posted the following:

I agree with Patrick Belton's take on Oxblog: trivial.posted by: Norman Pfyster on 08.17.04 at 11:20 AM [permalink]

How do I encourage the young women in my life to become a young woman like this, rather than another Jessica Cutler, Monica Lewinsky, Fawn Hall, whatever...posted by: Me on 08.17.04 at 11:20 AM [permalink]

Washington's not exactly the sexiest place in the world, is it?posted by: lex on 08.17.04 at 11:20 AM [permalink]
Ah, um, of course this is trite, but, ah, WHO ARE THE GUYS??!?? Anyone have a link?posted by: curious red on 08.17.04 at 11:20 AM [permalink]
The double standard claim is hogwash. The men involved had the presence of mind to not start blogs and tell their darkest secrets to literally any passerby. Cutler can only blame herself.posted by: Eric Pobirs on 08.17.04 at 11:20 AM [permalink]
It turns out she's a registered Republican. Here's a non-work-friendly piece (showing the boob's boob):
