Scandals Define Us
Ah, so it appears Scooter Libby, is the first person to be hit with indictments of the leaking of a covert CIA operative. But that’s not why I blog this.
Many Republican Senators, helping to spin things for the Administration, are dismissing possible charges of perjury and obstruction of justice as “technicalities” that are used “when the prosecutor doesn’t really have a case”. Oh really?
Think back to 1998-1999. Didn’t we impeach and try to toss President Clinton out of office on those very charges?
So what is worse to you? Perjury over a blow job lawsuit or perjury over a breach in national security?
It is truly the scandals, not the ideology, that defines us and especially our politicians.
And that’s the sick part of this story.
