I agree with Little Ricky:
SANTORUM: Sarah Palin is the Clarence Thomas for feminists.
I even wrote about it: Sarah Palin is Clarence Thomas. That’s rather explicit, isn’t it?
I don’t know if Anita Hill was telling the truth about Clarence Thomas, but I do know this:
“We have created a system where there is not a lot of shame in stretching the truth,” said Charlie Cook, editor of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report.
I’m tempted to ask Charlie Cook “What do you mean ‘we’ paleface?”, but he’s probably using the Royal ‘We’. It’s the post-Gingrich Republican Party that has created a system where there is no shame about stretching the truth. The exemplars of that culture are George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and their talking mouthpieces. The historical landmark for this culture?
That’s Colin Powell, John Negroponte, and George Tenet in the process of flushing America’s credibility down the toilet for a half a century or more. Five and a half years later we are still spending $10 billion a month in Iraq to try to salvage a ‘decent interval’ between our pullout and the collapse of the incompetent government we’ve set up there. That’s the kind of savage and costly consequence you get when a nation allows its leaders to have no shame about ‘stretching the truth’.
You know what I say? ENOUGH!!
