Back here, recent arrival and poster child for "Please put brain in gear before engaging mouth" ex-lib whinges on about how the left seems to get a free pass on sexual peccadilloes:
Yes, your double standard is obvious. When it's someone on the left who has relations with someone who is of legal age, we on the right can't touch him or her with a 10-foot pole.
To which commenter Jose delivers a savage towel snap to the nads:
Well Clinton did get impeached for having a blow job.
Jose: 1. Poster child: 0.
OK, IF YOU WANT TO PLAY THAT GAME ... goombah just won't let this go, with his rebuttal that "Clinton was impeached for lying under oath, the blowjob was merely the topic about which he lied."
There are so many responses to this counter-attack, but let me limit myself to the following observation: It's possible that Republicans minimize the chances of being caught lying under oath only because they simply refuse to be sworn in.
There's this (all subsequent emphasis added):
"It is not clear when or where Mr. Cheney was interviewed," the Times continued, "but he was not questioned under oath ...
And then there's this:
Bush and Cheney did not testify before the panel -- they were not under oath and there was to be no recording made of the session nor a stenographer in the room.

And even when they do end up being sworn in, it's certainly not because they volunteered for it:
Until the middle of last week, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice was engaged in a conflict with the 9/11 Investigation Commission over whether or not she would take an oath to tell the truth prior to voluntarily answering their questions.
So (and I say this with the utmost respect, goombah), why don't you put a fucking sock in it? I'm really, really, really tired of hearing people prattle on tediously about how Clinton lied under oath about a goddamned blowjob, when you have numerous members of the Bush administration who are such pathological liars about things that really matter that they'll do anything they can not to even be sworn in.
Now, piss off and give the keyboard back to Mommy. I run a blog, not a fucking day care.
