Remember when it was all about the lying?
That's right. When the Right was looking to take down Bill Clinton, it wasn't about the sex, oh no, it was about the lying. Under oath. And that was enough to demand that he be driven from office, you bet.
Fast forward several years, where we read that an increasing number of right-wing commentators are publicly suggesting that Scooter Libby should receive a presidential pardon. For lying. Under oath. To a federal grand jury.
We need a new word, since "hypocrisy" doesn't even remotely do this justice anymore.
