Here’s my question:
Did you applaud during the Clinton years when seven independent councils, including Ken Starr ‘Chamber’, went after Clinton for years, spending literally billions of dollars? Did you gasp when the mountains labored mightily and brought forth the mouse of ‘my God, Clinton lied about having sex*’ charges?
If you applauded that action, please explain why the investigation of perjury of Scooter Libby was a waste of taxpayer’s money. Could it be that a different ox was being, dare I say, gored?
I suspect that Scooter will scoot by the end of Bush’s term. And perhaps he should be pardoned in two years. Meanwhile, the real story is the pre-9/11 fervor that some members of this administration had for attacking Iraq and the machination that evolved from that fervor. There’s a story there, and someday it will come out. Scooter just may be the first piece of that puzzle.
*I have said before and I will say again: Clinton should have resigned. Not because of the politically hatched impeachment charges, but because he did disgrace the office.
