So Full Of It
Over at the National Review, some of the conservative writers are debating the merits of Scooter Libby's sentence. Some writers have shown their sanity by pointing out that Libby was tried and convicted by a jury of his peers for lying under oath, which is a crime. In fact, this crime of perjury was something that Republicans thought should bring down a President, but now that ensnared one of their own, it is no longer a big deal.
But I was struck by some of the absolute crap spewed by Mark Levin. Levin rejected the comparisons between Clinton and Libby, by saying the following
Clinton’s repeated lies before a grand jury and during his deposition were not only material and relevant to underlying crimes, but the conduct went to the core of the investigation and civil suit.
This is utter garbage. There is absolutely no connection between the Whitewater hearings and Monica Lewinsky. It was a fishing expedition and no sane rational person could possibly suggest that Fitzgerald roamed farther afield than Ken Starr. Guys like Levin are slithering around, trying to avoid the obvious hypocrisy of their positions. Sorry, but it won't work.
