Let The Crimes Begin

Sestak: Bill Clinton offered him job to quit race

Were a Republican in the WH, the MSM would be in full throat for a special prosecutor this weekend. For those with a memory short of full Alzheimers, we have proof.

Valerie Plame was worthy of a special prosecutor in the Bush administration -- an alleged leak as punishment for a husband leaking supposedly damaging information. Now we know that the "leak" was an inadvertent statement by Richard Armitage, generally a foe of the Bush administration, that had nothing at all to do with Valerie Plame. Never mind, we had a multiple year investigation anyway, and managed to prosecute Scooter Libby for perjury for getting some dates wrong, even though he had nothing to do with the inadvertent leak by Armitage. Such is the shape of "scandal" with a Republican in the WH. Oh, perjury? That is just one more legalism like campaign finance rules and 60 votes in the Senate that is only applicable to Republicans. Such is the America that we live in.

BO has trudged out one of this nations most prolific liars, the ever penitent Slick Willie in front of the cameras to accept the blame for this particular sordid political manipulation. An action that would be nothing but fodder for late night comedy were it being attempted by a Republican. Unsurprisingly, it sounds like the same shenanigans were pulled in Colorado.

Naturally, what we are going to see from the MSM is a concerted attempt to find any cases where a Republican in recent years, or potentially we might even get to hear some version of the "Jefferson had a child by a slave" defense. Heartwarming.
