The Hypocrisy In Here Is Stifling. I Think I’m Going To Be Sick. 2

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said in Nashville that the personal lives of White House hopefuls shouldn’t become an issue in the 2008 campaign.

And this is the same womanizing (let me quote Mr. Nixon here) expletive deleted who tried to crucify Bill Clinton for his–let’s get this straight–personal life?

(Forget the stuff about lying under oath. That was trumped up sophistry. The American people understood: who wouldn’t try to cover up an affair? Then again, that might have some relationship to the Current Federal Administration’s reluctance to have its minions placed under oath. The “under oath” thing, that is.)

Honest to Pete, I’ve read a lot of novels and science fiction in my time, but nothing I’ve read takes leave of reality like these Republican party-ites.

Oh, yeah, let’s look at the fidelity issue amongst current Presidential hopefuls.

Hmmmmm. Looks like a few issues with the self-styled party of family values.


Profanity fails me.

Nothing I can say can express the depth of my disgust at the depths of their hypocrisy.

They lie to themselves.

They lie to the American people.

They lie.

    Is pointing out a boss lying about having an affair with a subordinate always trumped-up sophistry, or only in Clinton’s case?

    Pointing out the affair was not the sophistry. The sophistry was, as I indicated in the link, the “lying under oath” thing.

    The bald truth is this. The Republicans in Congress couldn’t get Clinton on Whitewater, because there was nothing there. They couldn’t get Clinton on Paula Jones (maybe because they weren’t looking at the right time, but that’s another story), because there was nothing there.

    And they were determined to get Clinton.

    And they failed.

    I will never argue the Bill Clinton was or is a paragon or even a parallelogram of personal virtue.

    I will argue this: Though his personal life may not be a shining example on a hill, he did his job without draqging the honor of the United States of America (as opposed to his personal honor) through the mud.

    Which is more that anyone connected to the Current Federal Administration can claim.
